Trespasses Against Us is a thriller, often instructing the reader about Catholicism without being preachy and presents real life issues all teens face. The series takes place in a newly founded Catholic High School with a very small number of students. Celia is the girl who has a strong prayer life, is very modest and attends Eucharistic Adoration. George, Celia's best friend, asks Allie to be his girlfriend and he wisely seeks the counsel of a priest in confession. Allie has transferred from th ...more

This is the second in the John Paul 2 High series, and I read the first one, too, a year or so ago. The first book set up the characters and the school, the place and the setting. So this second book was able to take off quicker, and get right into the story.

This was a compelling story, which kept me up late turning pages till I reached the climax and conclusion. It was much more interesting and exciting than the first, slower moving but still compelling story.

In this second book, the students a

This book was definitely darker than the previous, you know, since Allie is being stalked by someone, but that's okay, I can handle it. :)

That being said, I saw the dark side of George Peterson, the good boy Catholic, the one no one thought would do anything wrong (besides Celia. Celia and George are the King and Queen of Goodness at JP2HS), but boy, George does some BAD things. Like some potential lethal things...

The ethics of a just war are discussed, as well as how harmful revenge is (with so

Full disclosure: I edited this book as the head of the John Paul 2 High team. We knew this was going to be an intense book, and I think it's more powerful than the first one. In this book, George and Allie start dating, only to have Allie getting stalked and George thrown into a crucible as events start raking up his recent past. And who is stalking Allie? Her sneering ex-boyfriend? Or someone more sinister, and more dangerous?

I like this book because we get to see inside Celia Costain's head f

I. WANT. TO. KNOW. WHO. THE. SHOOTER. IS. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a less spastic note, I liked hearing from Celia's perspective, as I could definitely relate to her as a teen (and even now).

What do you call a group of people who on the outside, are normal Catholics, but who have periodic crazy meetings late at night and sporadic email wars over plot points?

Well, you could call it a parish subcomittee, but that's also a good description of the John Paul 2 High Team.

The Team first started meeting three years ago when Sophia Press accepted our proposal to create a series of fun teen nov
