More About This Book

Overview

Three 15-old girls are starting their sophomore year of high school. The "impossible" they are trying to do is figuring out how to live according to God's standards in a society filled with moral laxity. Hopefully, the characters will continue through a series of short novels dealing with issues facing teenagers, particularly girls. This first story centers around dating and relationships. Future possible issues could include types of prejudice, alcohol/drugs, self esteem, learning problems, eating disorders, and trying to figure out what to do with their lives.

In Doing the Impossible, Megan gets the lead in the high school play, but her character is a rather "loose" woman. Her friends, Ashley and Brittney, provide opportunities to work through what would be appropriate according to their religious beliefs. Her leading man is more interested in "fun" than appropriateness. The girls' weekly trips to Bahá'í school on Sunday mornings add different perspectives and humor. Ashley has a learning disability and wrestles with feeling dumb and unattractive. Brittney is very smart, but overweight. She deals with her body image as well as where a smart female fits in society without being considered aggressive. Megan is talented, pretty, and popular. How much of that does she need to sacrifice so she doesn't feel guilty about the things being taught at Bahá'í school?

    Just so you know...

    I thought you would appreciate a description of the book. It's about 3 fifteen-year-old girls who are starting their sophomore year of high school The 'impossible' they are trying to do is living according to God's standards in modern society. For example, Megan gets the lead in the high school play, but her character is a rather 'loose' woman. She is talented, pretty, and popular. How much of that does she need to sacrifice so she doesn't feel a conflict with her religion? Ashley and Brittany are also main characters. In this and future books, the three girls deal with issues such as body image, learning disabilities, and being 'different.'
