No Such Thing as Perfect

My middle grade Christian fiction novel is on sale for 99c on Kindle.

 

Collette is starting seventh grade at a new school. She hopes to redefine herself and meet new friends, but she doesn't count on acquiring a jealous rival and attention from an older boy. When tragedy threatens at home, she leans on her faith and good friends to find her way through the struggles of junior high.

 

Review Excerpt:

A great story with Christian infusion - which so many books for young people are lacking. It also can serve as great conversation starter with your "tween." Issues about friends, "frienemies," boys and even a junior high perspective on adult behavior. Very well written.
