Children's LiteratureWhen Kylie Peterson and Rachen Cohen spy the same to-do list in the newspaper entitled "Teens need Independence and Excitement," they are motivated to make their summers count. Kylie wants more than anything to land a junior counselor position at a Christian camp for the summer. She just does not know if she fits the faith criteria required to do the job. Rachel is struggling with growing wings of her own, wanting to break free from her father, who lost his little sister, Rachel's namesake. She starts testing the waters when she accepts a job at the beach club without her father's permission. Rachel dreads nothing more than ending up at the Jewish Community Center all summer long, and she goes to great lengths to insure that does not happen. The two girls become fast friends when Kylie's cousin, Jed, asks them to head up the floral decorations for his wedding to Rachel's cousin, Davina. Not only do the girls share a new found interest in flowers, but they also are beginning to experience independence, adventure, and—the final item on their to-do list—something important to believe in. This inspirational title is part of the "Friends for a Season" series. 2006, Bethany House, Ages 8 to 12.
