Best Friend, Worst Enemy, the first book in the series, is a book about what every teenage girl goes through, their first crush. What makes it even worse is that her best friend likes the same hunky guy. With her strong faith in God and her cuddly cat, Goofy, she can get through it. I recommend this book because it is about a normal Christian teenage girl going through her first crush. Though a rough journey, her friend didn't make it any easier, Holly comes out with a stronger relationship with ...more

I think this book was really good. Best friends worst enemy is the first book in the series. this book is about the importance of friendship and shows that a boy is not worth having if you lose your bestfriend. This book is about two girls that are best friends named holly and andie, they both like the same guy named jared. they almost lose their friendship when they both decide to like him.
In this book I didnt really think there was anything wrong with it. I have the first seven books. But wh

Although Holly is a relatable character, she is a boy-crazy spoiled brat. She is a girl no young lady should adopt as a roll model.

I love these books! They are a must read!
Holly's Heart is a great series for Christian girls to read. I didn't just read Holly's First love, I read the entire volume 1! The books are about a girl in middle school who deals with divorced parents, first crushes, her mom's strict boyfriend, her dad's new life, a wedding, and more! But with the help of her mom, her friend Andie, her family, and her faith in God, Holly gets through it all. Holly is a lot like me. Her birthday is Valentine's Day, she loves to sing, and she's in middle school ...more

Holly learns a difficult lesson while approaching her 13th birthday. Forgiveness is hard. So does she let a boy come between her and her best friend, or let true friendship take priority, especially when the boy is less than noble. I think I will enjoy this little series about Holly and her heart, the girl born on Valentines.
