Okay, so.. Where to start?
Originally when I started reading this book, my first thought was "Oh! This is cute. I like this." Then I realized it was based around religion/God. I have nothing against that. But I thuoght it was overdone from time to time. But, until I got to page 158, I had every intention of giving this book four stars.
Then, as you already noticed, I got to page 158 and my eyes about popped out of their sockets. WHAAAT IS THIS!?! Okay, so in case you don't know/don't have the book I'm going to read to you what this girl wrote in.
"I'm SICK OF GUYS. I'm sick of them for a couple of reasons. The main one is because I made a mistake and I slept with two different guys... Now guys at my school won't leave me alone. They harass me at my locker at school, I have things shot down my shirt all the time, I have my butt grabbed about twenty times a day, and I know I'm an easy target... I've told billions of teachers who don't do anything." This is shortened, but still word for word. Now, you must know that Chad on every letter published in this book, Chad responded with helpful advice. HOWEVER, on this particular letter, his response was "Like it or not, your actions will help determine your reputation. Be careful with them." My mouth literally dropped when I read this. THIS IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT! THIS IS NOT OKAY! I understand you are against sex before marriage.. but this girl is in desperate need for help.
I was absolutely disgusted. This brought me down to about 2.5 stars.
THEN, I read the part about Pam and Bill not kissing until they were engaged.
Okay, overboard. This star gets two stars.. that was me being nice.

Autumn Hileman Chad is not saying that this girl deserved the sexual harassment, he pointing out that what you do and more importantly who you do something with can get out. I am sure he talked more about what to do to stop this. Your actions have consequences no matter what.

J. I considered the letter that was put in the book to be a snippet of what he wrote in response to the young girl. Just a note he wanted to make the reader aware of, he isn't any less intelligent than any of us, so I'm sure he made the effort to help the girl. As for the kissing story, my wife and I did the same and I've got to tell you it was really nice being my wife's first kiss and not having to wonder if I was as good of a kisser as her previous 12 boyfriends. Also herpes can be spread by mouth to mouth contact, so overboard? I dunno, intelligent sounds a little more accurate.
