Well. It is a bit complicated. A lot of it revolves around a lot that has happened to me in my own life, but I am not any of the characters.

It is about this girl, Francis Crandall aka Frankie. Her life is a mess. But it wasn't always a mess---until her parents started fighting. Her mother kicked her dad out of the house after a big arguement. Frankie isn't doing well at all emotionally, spiritually, or physically. She sinks down into depression. Starts making barely above failing grades. Deals with anorexia. She likes this guy named Evan, but despite what he displays, he shares no feelings for her like she thought. She feels like she has hit rock bottom. Then while walking down the street, she literally bumps into this mysterious guy who befriends her. He ends up changing his immoral ways and falls for her, and her him. Then, she finds God and becomes a Christian. She shares her new faith with her family and boyfriend. Her Mother embraces it and becomes a Christian---but her father and boyfriend don't welcome it.

That is all I have so far. :) I want it to end good, but I haven't thought how yet! scratchead

Sounds like a great story, Julia. I can't wait to hear what you decide for the ending. Smile

An idea for the ending...The Christian witness of her and her mother leads her father and boyfriend to Christ. Thumbsup

What an interesting argument, Julia! I like it very much. It seems so good that I should run a movie taking your book as a basis.

Go on! Hope that I can read your book soon! Thumbsup

Vanesa.

Thank you all! I enjoy it so much. By the way, the story is set in 1967.

The story basis is awesome. Kinda in the Judy Blume vein with a little V.C. Andrews thrown in and a dash of Frank Peretti. Kudos!
