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!
