Overview

Book two in the Glory Prep series--a Christy Award finalist!

The new year ... when a young girl's heart turns to new beginnings, weight loss, and a new term of chemistry!

New Yorker Gillian Chang returns for her second term at Glory Prep in San Francisco ready to share her faith, dive into her studies, and have fun with her new friends. She may be brilliant—playing half a dozen musical instruments and able to recite the periodic table backward—and ready to take on any challenge, but love is the one test she's never taken.

Gillian's falling hard for a junior who's already preparing for his Ph.D. in physics. She's got his attention—but can she keep it when she's never quite able to measure up and be the perfect girlfriend? She gets that he's under a lot of pressure, but is that a reason to take it out on her? In trying to help, she hides more and more from her friends. So when scandal breaks with Gillian in the middle, even Lissa and Carly wonder where the truth lies ...

"Shelley Adina hit a perfect balance. Her characters are strong Christians, and their faith is a big part of the story ... but she never really hits you over the head with it. It's a part of their lives, just like shopping and cute boys are a part of their lives." —Fictionistas.com

About the Author

RITA Award® winning author and Christy finalist Shelley Adina wrote her first novel when she was 13. It was rejected by the literary publisher to whom she sent it, but he did say she knew how to tell a story. That was enough to keep her going through the rest of her adolescence, a career, a move to another country, a B.A. in Literature, an M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction, and countless manuscript pages. Shelley is a world traveler who loves to imagine what might have been. Between books, Shelley loves playing the piano and Celtic harp, making period costumes, and spoiling her flock of rescued chickens.
