    This one hit it right on the nail

    A lot of women can relate to that. And it doesn't stop with the peer presure to have sex in high school. even as an adutlt woman, if you make the choice to wait there is going to be that same stigma. Read this book no one talks about this.

    SO TRUE

    This book was so good I start reading it on my way to big bear n i was bored so i saw it in my cousins bag so i got it out and start reading it i thought it was going to be the little goody goody 2 shoes christan book when my cousin explained it to me but on the first page I knew it wasnt goin to be that way at all.The thing that where goin on in this book was like god sent it to me when i needed it the most..I was about to have sex because i thought every 1 else was doing and i was scared i loose my boyfriend if i didnt satisfied his needs physically.This book has really helped me by staying pure and with my walk with christ..and it show that not all chritans are perfect..im reading the bible more and praying more n i really feel better spittually.Since i go to a christan school I got almost all my girlfriends in my class to read these serires of books. We talk about the book at school and what we would have done if we where in Payton Skyy's shoes.

    Saying No... Not as Easy as it Sounds

    This book demonstrated that a Christian must follow the rules of the Bible, but you can still have fun. I honestly could not put the book down, along with the rest of the books in the Payton Skky Series and I'm looking forward to reading about Perry Skky and his problems with being a Christian Boy in our world today!

    Desi, a high school junior

    This book s really good, the beginnning was heartbreaking. Dakari gets what's coming though and he turns out being a true friend in the end. And that Tad Taylor, what more could a girl ask for.
