The Challenge, written by my friend Wendy Everts, is a lovely book with a non-traditional plot. It’s rare to find a book about Christians that isn’t cheesy. This one was sweet, heartwarming, and a story I’ll be mulling over for a while. I believe it would make a great book for teen girls to read in a small group (there is also a separate companion discussion guides). Read if you’re a teen girl, if you work with teen girls, and especially if you are a mother of teen-aged daughters.
