Overview

Spring semester at the first year of John Paul 2 High, it seems to Celia Costain that almost EVERYONE is dating: except her! Her parents don't allow dating, and Celia's mostly fine with that -- but that doesn't make her life much easier. Because she's the principal's daughter, everyone seems to think she's perfect. And when scary things start happening to her friend Allie, no one seems to want to tell Celia what's really going on! As for George Peterson, his conflict with Tyler Getz is far from over. As Tyler targets more JP2HS kids, and threatening messages on Allie’s cell phone appear with alarming frequency, George starts wondering how long the good guys have to wait before they’re allowed to strike back? As events escalate, George finds himself waiting for Tyler to cross the line so he can serve out justice … but the only person standing in his way is his former best friend: Celia Costain.

Editorial Reviews

Kelly Hansen
Good fiction expressly written for Catholic teens has been a rarity - until now...Trespasses Against Us is a thriller, often instructing the reader about Catholicism without being preachy and presents real life issues all teens face. Kids are longing for books that are exciting and Catholic at the same time and this is THE series.

Trespasses Against Us...is the second in the John Paul II High series, and I must have forgotten how excited I was back when I read the first in the series... Once again, we have a plot that's edgy and engrossing and characters who are concrete and likable (except for the ones who aren't, of course). We have Catholicism as a seamless part of the fabric of the book; it's more than incidental, but very much NOT shoved down the reader's throat. This book has all the ingredients of a great novel.

    Trespasses Against Us by Christian M. Frank

    Allie is new to John Paul 2 High and her new friends are patient and helpful about explaining the Catholic religion to her. She struggles to adjust and this gives readers the opportunity to learn and do some soul searching about their own morals.

    Allie's new boyfriend George has a best friend named Celia and their relationship is tested as the dynamics are changed. Celia is the principle's daughter, who is viewed as a perfect Catholic and often feels left out.

    A stalker remains an ongoing problem for Allie, causing fear and disagreements amongst the friends on how to handle it. Should they keep it a secret and handle it themselves or call the police?

    Catholics are taught to be celibate until marriage as are many other religions and cultures. This Catholic high school's students are portrayed as being less sexually active than the public school, but that's not necessarily the reality of all Catholic schools.

    The struggle against peer pressure is real however and Trespasses Against Us portrayed that effectively. Other issues touched upon were how to forgive under difficult circumstances and the dangers of being consumed with anger and vengeance.

    Trespasses Against Us is a well written suspenseful tale for teens struggling with the pressure to become sexually active. It offers common sense reasons why it's not a good idea and may help open up dialogue with parents.

    Sophia Institute Press sent me a complimentary copy of this book for me to review.

    More good stuff from this series that amps up the drama and draw

    More good stuff from this series that amps up the drama and draws out more real angst of the age and of the search for one's direction, but in a nice, entertaining drama that is safe for the high school (and maybe upper junior high) age. Thank you for writing good stuff for teens (and some of us young enough to remember the high school days)!
