Don't Kiss him Good-bye by Sandra Byrd

2nd in the London Confidential Series books.
Juvenile Fiction/Teligious/Christian
US $6.99

Savvy Smith has settled well into the new school and getting acquainted with more of her classmates in Wexburg Academy just outside London England.  She is still delivering the school newspaper, The Wexburg Academy Times, and secretly writing the school advice column.

She learns that there is to be a May Day Ball, and she probaly wont be invited to go, since most dates have been settled on, since early in the school year.   Then she gets an invitation to attend, by a new acquaintance, Rhys, who she meets in the library, when he asks her for her help on some school work.  At first, she wants to go with him, but the longer she knows him, the more flags she sees waving as to his character.  They've already bought her dress, and paid for her share of the limo ride, and she feels badly that her parents will be out that money.  What should she do?

I know these books are meant for tweens and young teens, but I totally enjoy them, and feel that it doesn't hurt  parents and grandparents to read a little of the stress from wanting to belong to the crowd. 
Sandra Byrd has totally captured my reading heart.

I recieved ths book free from Tyndale House publishers to read and review.  I recieved no other compensation, all opinions expressed here are my own.

I like some of those books too...and I do think it keeps us connected with the younger generation-as each set of teens seems to have its own problems and issues.

Thanks for the review, Jettie- Hugs, Diana
