Just as the teen characters in Nancy Rue's Raise the Flag series continue to meet at the school flagpole to pray for one another, teens and preteens will continue to find encouragement and hope in stories that address vital issues and help them find strength to meet the greatest challenges in life-continuing with Book Six: When Is Perfect, Perfect Enough?

Quiet, studious Shannon D'Angelo has never made trouble before-and she's not about to start now! People have started to figure out that she's got a problem with anorexia, but she's certain she can handle the situation on her own. There's no point in worrying her parents; they have enough problems dealing with Caitlin, Shannon's troubled younger sister, who's been getting involved with everything from car accidents to house fires. How can Shannon's struggles even compare?

But Shannon quickly learns that there are some things she can't control, including her illness and, well?life. That means if she's ever going to get well, she's going to have to let go of her need to be perfect and allow herself to be loved and healed by the ones-and the One-who love her most of all.

I thought that it was again a wonderful book by Nancy Rue. It told of a girl suffereing with anorexia and the troubles of her older sister who is messing up again. I felt really bad for Shannon, keeping her feelings bottled up inside but in the end she was ad least able to get some out. I hope Mrs. Rue comes out with another book int the series.
