About the book:
Sixteen-year-old Addison Blakely has tireless played the role of PK—preacher’s kid—her entire life. But after Wes Keegan revs his motorcycle into town and into her heart, Addison begins to wonder how much of her faith is her own and how much has been handed to her. She isn’t so sure she wants to be the good girl anymore. Join Addison Blakely as she attempts to separate love from lust, facts from faith, and keep her head above water in her murky, fishbowl existence.
My Thoughts:
Addison Blakely: Confessions of a PK is cute, fast-paced, and relatable. Addison is torn between her Christian upbringing and what may look on the outside to be something better.
My favorite part was Addison's inner dialogue and how she asks herself tough questions. As the story progressed she begins to see that faith has to come from her heart and not from her parents.
Favorite Quote:
"I looked at the brown-haired, blue-eyed girl in the mirror, hiding behind flannel pj's and Hello Kitty house-shoe boots and wondered what a lemon drop would even look like."
