These books are awesome!!! I love how melody carlson doesnt sugarcoat the life of teenage girls. She tells it exactly how it is for us! Boys, temptations,friends,clothes,the whole nine yards! These books really show how hard being not only a christian girl in this world is but how hard it is being secular too. None of us have it super easy. You have to read all the books to understand whats going on like why all these girls are living together,whos who,etc... the post above has the order of the books.:-)

Stealing Bradford by Melody Carlson is the second book in the Carter House Girls series. The personalities of the girls have been well established in the first book, now we get to see how they react to high school. Rhiannon and long time boyfriend Bradford seem perfect for each other until Taylor sets her sights on him, setting up the title of the book. When they split up, all of the other girls of Carter House set their sights on bringing Taylor down. Taylor is an over-the-top witch with a b, but as DJ spends more time with her, her vulnerability begins to show through, and it forces DJ to step forward in her faith. DJ's growing faith is refreshing and makes a nice addition to the series. Because she didn't grow up in a Christian home, everything about Christianity is new to her, and some of the toughest lessons for teens (or anyone): judge not, lest ye be judged, and love your neighbors and your enemies are struggles for her. My one disappointment for this book was the ending. Having recently read I Heart Bloomberg, I was surprised to find that Carlson had used an almost identical plot device in that book. While the two books have different audiences, it's not a good practice for an author.

Stealing Bradford is a delightful follow-up to Melody Carlson's first Carter House Girls book, Mixed Bags. This time, the girls deal with dating and competition for boyfriends -- a struggle many teens face. You'll cheer as the characters work through bitterness and rivalry, coming out stronger in their friendships and their Christian faith.

As a sequel of 'Mixed Bags' the author does not miss a beat. The reader is drawn to the middle of the action just as in the first book. This book includes even more scenarios of what teenagers are facing in this day and age. The tomboy girl to the fashionista, the challenges, the doubts and the fears we¿ve all experienced are there. But this book gives more, it gives an answer, a lifeline and that is God. These are definitely books I will gift to the teens in my life.

Stealing Bradford was an easy read like the first book in the series. I'm not sure I enjoyed it as much, though. I appreciated how the issues with Connor and DJ were worked through, but since this is part of a series it's still unresolved at the end, which is okay, but I don't like too many loose ends. There was a big loose end that is sort of dealt with because you see the first chapter for the next book at the end of this one, but that's the only reason. Without that you'd be left hanging. It seems like the characters are becoming more three dimensional as the series progresses, which is good. I like how gradually the deepening issues with Taylor are emerging and being peeled away like layers from an onion. It's great how the author shows that when you attempt to get to know people who you don't like, you will often see that their pain drives them to act the way they do. That's definitely the best part of this story. The scenario with Taylor at the school reminded me of A Walk to Remember's conflict, almost as if it had been taken from that story. And last, I don't know why I kept seeing Taylor as a blonde in my mind's eye, then to find out she has a totally different parentage kind of threw me. Maybe I just missed that in the first book.
