Asking for Trouble by Sandra Byrd

Asking for Trouble by Sandra Byrd

I just read a wonderful book for teen girls called, “Asking for Trouble” by Sandra Byrd. This is the first of four books in a teen series called London Confidential.

The book is about an American teenage girl named Savvy who moves to London with her family after her father gets a new job. While the language in America and England is the same, Savvy still has to face cultural differences and it’s not easy to fit in. She really wants to work on the school newspaper staff, but there are several obstacles in her way. The story takes us on a journey of Savvy growing in her faith and coming into her own in a new place.

It didn’t take long for me to read the book. The chapters are pretty short and each one left me wondering about what was going to happen next. I enjoyed the use of current fashion trends and catch phrases throughout the book.  I think that young teenage girls will definitely be able to relate to Savvy.

Reading this book was very refreshing to me. I was an avid reader growing up and I don’t think that I’ve ever read a book about a young Christian girl navigating through school and allowing her faith to guide her steps. There definitely is a need for more books like this.

“Asking for Trouble” is a book that would be great for mothers and daughters to read together and discuss. It can actually open up dialogue for some great mother/daughter conversations.

I had fun reading this book and I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, “Through Thick & Thin”.

Below is a book trailer for the series. Feel free to check it out!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's so cool that so many could relate to the pen pal post. I'm following you now.

    The book sounds great. I used to watch Lifetime movies with my mom and we'd talk about what went on in the movies. This book sounds like one we could have read together. I'm off to explore you blog now.

    Sounds like a great series of books. I remember reading all the time growing up. I wish I knew of some really good books for young teen girls at that time.

    I have made a list of a few books I've found I want the kids to read at some point. I'll have to read that one and maybe add it to mmy list. Thanks for sharing!
