Karen's latest novel "Learning" will truly take you on a roller coaster of emotions and won't let you go until you read the last page. Bailey and Cody are two of the main characters who find themselves living separate lives in different cities but their thoughts and hearts are never far from each other. They once thought they would be together forever, but find that life has a way of leading them in different directions. Bailey seems to settle well in New York to work on Broadway in the musical "Hairspray." She soon learns that being on Broadway isn't an easy job. Meanwhile, her friendship with Brandon Paul continues to grow, but she still questions and sometimes regrets the loss of her relationship with Cody. Cody is doing well, coaching football at a high school in Indiana, and is growing closer to his friend Cheyenne while helping her recover from her car accident. Brandon and Bailey's developing relationship was interesting to watch and I admire how greatly Brandon respected Bailey and treated her like a Queen! I always feel so satisfied after I finish a Karen Kingsbury book. "Learning" deals with going after your dreams, developing relationships, and allowing God to work his magic. Karen's books inspire and teach and give hope to a better tomorrow. This is what we all need more of especially in this time we are living in. Ann T. Mason

I was honored to read an advanced copy of this book for Karen Kingsbury as part of Team KK. It was so good, I couldn't put it down! Readers are reunited with their favorite characters, Bailey Flanigan and her family, the Baxters, and of course Bailey's men...Cody and Brandon. We watch as Bailey and Cody each try to make their way in a new world. We see the Baxter family come together to support Ashley & Landon in a battle for Landon's health. Bailey struggles with her feelings for Cody and her new interest in Brandon, who quickly wins the hearts of readers, even though they still love Cody Coleman! This one will inspire you to walk a better walk... to live as a better Christian, and to keep hope alive in every situation. Grab a box of tissues and a latte and start reading a book that truly is an example of Life Changing Fiction.

I have enjoyed every KK book I have ever read. Learning is no exception. The characters in this book and many others are some of my favorites, Bailey especially. To watch her grow from a young teenager into a strong young woman off on her own in New York is quite exciting. It almost felt like I was there with her as she started her job and learned the routines. I love the special relationship she has with her mom. I think every teenage girl and mom should read these books and desire to have a relationship like that. I have to admit I am not too sure about what is best for Bailey as far as her man. I love seeing how happy she is when Brandon Paul treats her so special. I am upset with Cody for ignoring her, no matter his reasons. I can see many good things about it each way. I have always loved when her and Cody were together. I see such a special relationship between them that neither can have with anyone else. But Cody has made some choices that have kept them apart. And those choices have hurt Bailey greatly. So each of them has to live life down the path that those choices have put them on. It's like real life, the choices we make effect our lives and we can allow God to use them for good or we can keep making more bad choices. God is able to do great things no matter what our choices. And like the message that is throughout these books, God has a plan for our lives, a plan for good. That is something that I love about her books. She brings out how even through hard times and through things that we find impossible to live through God can and will bring us through if we will cling to Him through it. I cannot wait for the next two books in this series! They are going to be awesome, I know.

It was really good and i love this series. The only think that really annoyed me was that whenever they talked to God, He talked back, which was fine and absolutely biblical because God hears us when we talk to Him and He answers us. But, i didnt like how He would answer with like "my son..." or "my daughter....". It just got really annoying after a while. But overrall it was great

I love this whole series. I couldn't wait to read it after "Leaving" and can't wait for the third and fourth books. Karen Kingsbury is the best!

Bailey Flanigan is in theater and loves it. Brandon, a movie star, loves Bailey. Coach Cody turns the hearts of his team and the heart of his (dead) war buddy's girl friend. Inspired and vertically challenged are the two take aways from this book. The characters are down-to-earth people trying to figure out their feelings via the Word of God. It's like having an enjoyable bible study with friends. Easy going and loving. I loved the Empire State Building scene. It was as though I were there feeling the building swaying, looking over the edge, seeing the sights of the night. The character, Brandon, brought surprises to the pages, while Bailey produced emotions. I found myself shedding tears a few times while I listened to this book.

My mom gave me the last two books in this Bailey Flanigan series. She said it was really good, so I had to read them. In this first book the author uses names from my family: My son's Brandon Paul and Devin. Tara is my great niece's name. Now if Alisha is in one of the next books that takes care of all my children. I found it to be very interesting that my grown up kids names are characters in the books. Thank you Karen. I enjoy your books.

Karen Kingsbury always writes heart touching and "Life Changing" fiction. Learning, book #2 in the Bailey Flanigan series was a very enjoyable book with characters that I look forward to learning more about in the last two books in the series, Longing and Loving. I will highly recommend to my friends and family. Bailey and Cody appeared in previous books by Karen and I was so excited that they got their own series. Bailey is the kind of young women that you pray your own children or grand children could be like. She has an unwavering faith in God and is not afraid to reach for the "stars" and at the same time look to God for where he wants her future to go. Bailey is proof that young girls can live pure until marriage with the help of God and a strong family unit. I give Leaving a 5 out of 5 stars. I received this book from Zondervan for my honest review and was NOT paid in any way for my review.

I do enjoy this series overall but sometimes the sickly sweet way the characters respond to situations was over the top. Was a tad dissapointed with the predictability as well
