    I Can Really Relate!

    This book really woke me up to reality. In many ways I can really relate to Payton. Just like her I try to do the right thing but my friends fall short and just like her I had to realize that I may think some of the things and ways that my friends do. This book taught me a lesson that I'll never forget. You must get yourself together before you can help anybody else.

    Sober Faith

    My character is cinderella from the book called sober faith.This is the story of a 17 year old high school student who is a god fairing religious girl.who has had many hard teenage dicisions to deal with.The story begins with her breaking up with her ex-boyfriend Dakari Graham who is not into religion and has no values and wants cinderella to have sex before she is in committed relationship and marriage.S o before long she meets a new booyfriend named Tad Taylor who wants the same things out of life that she does.Before long everyone goes to a dance and cinderella and Tad runs into her ex-boyfriend who invites them to an after party alongs with cinderellas best friends.Rain,Lynzi,and Dymond whom are sometimes religious sometimes not. Well the party is in full swing and drinks are being passed around and Cinderella's best friends are lured into drinking while her and Tad just look on, it gets to be late around 2:00 a.m. and everyone starts to leave the party drunk. Some are hanging around doing drugs and having sex in the rooms. Cinderella then decides it's time to call her parents instead of riding where the party goes and just as she's about to leave, she goes back in and gets her three girl friends and tells them to ride with her and her boyfriend and that her parents will drop them off. Little did she know, upon returning to school the following Monday the people she was supposed to ride with got killed by driving drunks. She ran home later that day to tell her Mom and her Mom said 'Well, that's some Sober Faith for you, isn't it?' I think what I have learned from this story is God has many ways to talk to his people that stay in prayer and live by his ways, and you must have faith in yourself and trust his word.

    A Very, Very Interesting Book

    By reading this book I've learned some valuable things about life and how to take control of it. However, yet this book taught you life lessons, it taught them from a teenager's point of view. This book is far from boring and is very much exciting. I could read this continuous times and still react as if it was my first.

    Ms. Moore is the Bomb

    Sober Faith, whoo, is the 'Bomb'!!!!!!!!!! It teaches you to 'not touch the sauce'(as Tad would say), drinking can lead you into the wrong state of mind, loose frinends, but most of all, loosing a loved one!!!!! But what I like about this book is, at the end, they all vale to stay friends at the end. Ms. Moore, all of your Payton Skky books are the bomb. If you never go into a book of history, remember you'll always be in mine. Keep up the good work!!!!

    I have faith now....

    I was reluctant to read this book at first, because I thought it was going to be "too religious" and "preachy", but when I started, I couldn't put it down. No matter what religion or color you are every young girl should read this book, because a young woman deals with the problems that most of us deal with in a mature, educated way.
