A fun read teaching a great lesson.
PlotChristy Miller is excited to be spending Christmas vacation at her aunt and uncle's in Newport Beach. Her head is full of dreams of spending time with all her friends there, especially Todd. Those dreams soon turn to nightmares, however, when some feelings get hurt and Christy finds herself mixed up in emotional games. It's a lesson about falling and getting back up in relationships with her friends, her family, and with God; and about finding those forever kind of friends.
MoralityVery good. Some of Christy's friends try to get her to make Todd jealous and to make another guy think she's more interested than she is, but Christy knows it's wrong to play emotional games like that...even though she accidentally finds herself in the middle of such games later.
One of Christy's friends from the summer writes Christy to tell her she's pregnant. Christy and Todd agree it was wrong of this girl to have sex before marriage, but that it was right of her not to have an abortion.
Spiritual ContentChristy and Todd pray a lot. Doug has some scripture verses posted in his truck. Traci suggests reading a certain passage of the Bible and everyone getting together to talk about it. Todd talks about lots of spiritual stuff.
Drug and Alcohol ContentNone.
Sexual ContentA couple kisses, but nothing inappropriate. A brief mention of a girl Christy knew during the summer, who is now pregnant, having gone to bed with a guy, but nothing explicit.
Crude or Profane Language or ContentNone.
ConclusionHonestly, we've all had times where we've fallen down in our relationships with our friends and family. We either say the wrong things or do something, and unintentionally hurt them. This story is a very entertaining play on how, when those things happen, not to give up on those relationships, but to stand back up and try again. The same when we feel we've stumbled and fallen in our walk with God. He's always there to pick us up, dust us off, and say try again. He doesn't give up on us. This is an important lesson for people of all ages.
