"I know you mean well, and I appreciate your taking me in. I ... I don't know what I would have done." He curled and uncurled his fingers. "I have no problem with your other rules, but I can't do this one. No one's ever 'accepted me always.' At some point, I'll mess up. Maybe badly. Maybe it'll be over India. You won't want to be my mom then, so I'd rather not risk it."

The air sucked from the room, and Elliot, clearly aware of it, pushed his chair back. "If I might be excused?"

-----

Elliot Jersey turned up on the Russells' doorstep, sick with the flu and filled with a lot of secrets. An abusive past. A knife fight with his dad. And a lot of self-doubt.

But from the start, though he's grateful they've taken him in, it's his interest in their daughter, India, that causes the most problems. A girl as great as her has no business with a boy like him and no amount of love and heavenly forgiveness will ever change that.

Especially not after their sexual attraction spirals them over the edge, into the biggest mistake of their lives.

A story of God's grace and forgiveness by best-selling author SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS, co-founder of THE EDGE.

I really liked the story about Elliot Jersey who is a troubled and abused teenager. I loved the way the author had a spiritual theme in the story. Elliot Jersey made a mistake while staying at The Russell's house. It involved the Pastor's daughter, India. Suzanne did a great job with communicating God's unconditional love and forgiveness through all of the family. I especially loved the talk that India's mom had with Elliot about God. I would definitely recommend this story.

What's a girl to do?  Teenage hormones, a seriously good looking bad boy who shows up at her parents' door, two over protective brothers...all combine to keep her vow of being chaste until marriage a hard one.  Being the pastor's daughter and a pretty one at that- makes it hard for the boy that showed up at her door to keep his agreement with the Pastor and her brothers to respect her.  But the family that opened their door to this boy, that try to show him the unconditional love that he has never known and show him the love that God has for him, feel foreign to him.  This is was a perfect read for a Sunday evening,  This is a story about teenage feelings, parental feelings about those teenage feelings, unconditional love- including loving our teens through their inevitable mistakes.  I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

I go into every Suzanne D Williams book with great expectations and I'm never disappointed. Suzanne is a skilled writer, and New ~ Jersey is a multi-faceted story of neglect, love, misconceptions, hope and acceptance. Read it now, and don’t miss a word!

Amy walked home from school. She really wanted to meet sonic at the soccer game but she was too shy. So she checked her facebook account to see what was going on in the soccer game. Silver: kickoff. Tails: almost a goal. Shadow: gooooooooaaaaaaaaaaal! Sonic: we win 2-1! P.S. Does anyone know where amy is? *she hustles to the stadium to see if sonic is still there* (sorry the chapter is so short i have to go to bed)
