Her home life is going better than ever, and even her enemy, Frankie, wants to be friends. But can Frankie be trusted?

What I appreciate about Shades of Truth and Flickering Hope is that both books treat the subject of God in a realistic, honest way—in the way teens really would grapple at times. The spiritual moments of the book are expertly handled in gentle and authentic ways.
