    Perfect For Teen Girls

    ***e-Format Provided by NetGalley***

    All at once uplifting, spiritual, and innocent; THE NEXT DOOR BOYS tells the story of one year in the life of BYU freshman Leigh Tressman. Moving away from home to attend school on her own (well, besides her older brother living next door) is a big step from where Leigh's life was headed just under a year ago. At that time she was fighting for her life due to a Cancer diagnosis. Growing up she has been raised in the Mormon Church, and that Faith is what brought her to BYU. She didn't anticipate the energy that being a 'normal' student would take, and she also didn't anticipate the attention she would get from guys that happen to think she's beautiful. In a year that tests her faith, control, and stamina, Leigh discovers that God does provide a way, even when all hope seems lost.

    Author Jolene B. Perry creates a story that helps to restore a readers faith. I found Leigh's tale compassionate and sweet and I was happy with how things worked out in the end for her. That's not a spoiler, btw. Every story has an end, and I'm saying I liked the way this one ended. I feel that readers not familiar with the Mormon church may not understand the terminology used at points in the story. After spending five years discovering the Mormon faith when I was younger, some of the things in the story were not clear cut, but that was long ago, so I may be rusty on my vocabulary.

    Overall the novel is endearing and recommended for any youth that enjoys christian literature.
