    What a bad book!

    Portrays an unrealistic, fantastical idea of love and sends the wrong message to teens, too (and I am one). I just hated this book. Like another reviewer said, it was cheesy, and the random resurgances of religious conversation truly annoyed me. I really hated how the book made two teenagers' love affair seem righteous. Oh, and it sent out the message that the age of consent shouldn't be upheld as well. It's not okay for an 18 year old guy to be with a 15 year old girl. Yeah. Not much else to say, except the book was quite poorly written as well. I caught around 5 typos. The cheesyness, unrealisticness, and bad message combined with the poor writing just make this book a loser. However, this book was just unacceptable to me. Good thing it was a free read. Yuck.

    a MUST read

    When I first read this, I was a little hesitant. I decided to just go ahead and read it because it was a some what short story. I was shocked by how fast I was hooked. I could not put this down until I found out how it ended. I love this because it is about; faith, God, love, and family. It has parts that makes me smile, parts that make me sad for the characters, and it makes me anxious as to what is going to happen next. It is a very cute love story. I have already recommended this book to my friends and they loved it as well. There are parts that are a little mature, so this is definitely for older teens. READ IT! :)

    Inspired!

    This book follows a tradition teenage boy meets teenage girl storyline, but it has an exceptional look into what marriage really means, the way sex really should be treated by everyone, and the wonders that God shows everyone who is willing to believe in Him and have faith that He gives more to those who trust in Him than they could ever imagine achieving on their own! The intimate scenes are just revealing enough to get the author's point across. This is a book for all teens and up, and everyone can enjoy a well written story as well as get a good message to use in their daily lives.

    excellent read

    I was impressed with the author's view of God and man; she protrayed her characters very realistically, with real situations and real discussions. The author's voice and opinion is very strong in this story, but it is a lovely one - I could tell she really cared about the characters' situation. This story challenged my faith in God and how He works in people's lives.

    Horrible

    This book was horrible, throughout the story I felt like religion was being shoved down my throat. The plot never really had a chance to develop because the author was concentrating more on the morality than on the story line.

    !!

    <3 Loved it:)
    It was exactly what teenage love feels like and what a lot of teenagers go through...
    It talked about faith and steamy love all at the same time!
    It was a great mix of romance and religion and written very well...
    I would recommend this book and maybe even read it a second time
    It was an amazing book and great that it was free!!

    i know this is a good book!!!! i am not a reader and for me it's so hard to find a romance book to keep tied in! i have never read a book so fast! i mean this book was so romantic and took my thinking and emotions to a whole new level. This book made me happy, it made me cry and tear, and it made me laugh! it had a verity of different things to keep you very interested! I love this love story because it was sweet and so powerful! any one who is a romantic like me should read this i garantee that you will fall in love with this book. Maybe you will find love like that.

    so not spiritual

    Not a book I would let a teenager read if I wanted him or her to learn about God's feelings about sex and pure relationships. I think it sends the wrong message - as long as you're not doing 'it' everything else is ok. It tries to pass as a book about christianity. Joanna is supposed to be a christian and is constantly lying to her parents, getting naked, and doing everything but have sex. No one's perfect but come on - a little more self-control please. God has a plan, but this ain't it.

    Don't bother

    Includes great Christian principles, but is not a very good story. It's pretty lame.

    IDK about this one

    I downloaded this eBook because I found the title interesting, and I start reading and it is about TEENAGERS?? I stopped reading it because the characters seemed immature and I felt really creepy reading it.. Maybe its just me, but I wouldn't reccomend this book.

    Cheesy yet religious

    This story in my opinion was cheesy. The main plotline was unrealistic and uninteresting. Who in the world would say they are in love when they are still young? The girl is fifteen and the boy is eighteen... The story is like being in a teenage girl's head... sappy, highly emotional, prone to impulses that aren't usually the good thing to do. I got tired of reading it because of all the sappy-ness of it. I like the religious aspect of it though... The boy's understanding of God and himself in terms of Christianity is pretty good. I wouldn't read this book, but that's just me... Good thing it was a free ebook.

    **Worth the reading**

    I was unsure about this book and only downloaded because it was free but I must say this is great book. I can only speak for myself but when I finished this book I am still thinking about it. The author painted the story so clear and vivid. It seemed so real and definitely we can relate to as wethink back to that time in our lives. It left a good impact on me. I want to read more books like this. Trulyyyyyy a must read
