Holly's Heart by Beverly Lewis

After reading one of my Mary Kate and Ashley books for about the fifth time in a row, I was getting fed up with the lack of reading material. I rang my friend Maria, asking desperately for a book to read. She lent me Holly’s Heart, a teenage fiction Christian book. It has five stories in it, all linked together. Holly is a young writer whose Dad walked out on her, her mom and her little sister, Carrie. The book is quite Jesus-y, but very well written so it makes up for that. That is if you think being Jesus-y is a bad thing, which some people do, and some people don't. So yeah, you don't have to be a loyal church-goer to read the book.

Holly talks about boys, besties*, school, and family. I think it has really good advice in it, as well as being entertaining.
In case you're wondering how honest you are, there is a very interesting quiz at the back of book two. Beware, if you're not honest enough you shall be shunned by Beverly Lewis and sentenced to reading Ephesians 4 and 5.
*besties= teenage talk for best friends.


  1. Do you read many shortstories? I had forgotten how much I enjoyed shortstories till the last year or two. I used to read a fantasy series of connected shortstories by Robert Asprin that was really good.

    This sounds like a great book for girls to read and I know what you mean about Christian books and looking past preconceived notions of that genre-- I read a Christian archeological thriller that was just amazing.

    Izzy, I so enjoy your posts--- love your honesty, cleverness and humor--- and I love learning about new books-- wish school didn't keep you so busy.

  2. Really good books for your age are hard to find. I enjoy reading your reviews. I actually picked up the Princess Diaries based on your review when I needed something light and fun. It was perfect for my weekend in Longview!

  3. I love these books, they were definately a good find!
