Seventeen-year-old Jordan Klein is a New York City girl who cracks wise to deal with the world around her. Her mother, Rachel, is a litigator—sharp, refined, and always careful not to spill her gin and tonic on the couch. Her father, Eli, is a professor of divinity, an unapologetic eccentric and, in Jordan’s eyes, a dipsy-doodling disaster. When he agrees to pastor a small ...more

Funny, entertaining, and a good story line. It's also a good clean read for kids (and parents) who prefer this kind of book.

I got this book for free through the Goodreads First Reads program. It took awhile for me to get it which was disappointing, but I am looking forward to reading it now that it is here.

This book is a Christian story, and at first that worried me. I am agnostic and so I didn't want to read a story that was preachy and tried to convert the readers. This book did not try to do that. It was a cheerful story that anyone could enjoy. Not just Christians.

I liked the characters. Jordan grew a lot during

I received this book for free through a Goodreads giveaway.

This book was a very pleasant surprise. It's not something I would have sought out on my own, as a 30 something agnostic who doesn't have a Christian background. That's the nice thing about literature though, living in another world for a brief period of time.

I zipped through this book fairly quickly. Jordan made for a delightful heroine, and I loved the supporting characters. I felt like the plot allowed for a lot of conflict without m

Jordan Klein is a city girl whose father decides to take a temporary pastor position in a small town in Texas. Jordan is not up for small town living and isn't afraid to express her opinion. She meets a quirky girl who she grows close with. She also wonders about the mysterious boy at the cafe. As she continues to go through the motions there, she actually begins to feel more and more at home.

This was a cute and funny story about a city girl who travels to the middle of nowhere. I really enjoyed

This was a quick, fun book, although I did think there was a little too much of the

Story about a girl who leaves NYC for the summer thinking she's going to have a horrible time, her life will be ruined, teen drama fit, etc. Throughout the time she's there, she actually has fun, makes new & genuine friends and learns to about love for a guy who is true and real.

I loved the theory behind this coming-of-age book. A kind-of preacher’s kid from a slightly dysfunctional family starts noticing that the church sign next door is prophetic. Even though it’s light and funny, at first I really didn't like the main character, Jordan. She seemed a tad selfish - but I grew to really really love her! I didn’t see the ending coming either. Overall, fun book, definitely worth the read!

I really liked this book and the characters in it. Jordan, Bliss, and Knox where really fun characters to follow because I could relate to them. I could relate Jordan and her unhappiness of moving to a different state to me, and I could relate Bliss and Knox to my best friends.

Overall this book was a delight to read and the fact that the characters can be related to people is a bonus.

This was a really great book. Jordan is a fabulous, witty character, so be prepared to fall in love with her and the rest of the characters. There where some really hilarious lines in this book that had me cracking up, so get ready to laugh your butts off!

I recieved a signed copy here on goodreads, and am glad I did. Despite some jarring juxtapostion betwin some scenes, this was a fun and delightful read. This is begs for a series centered around this deligtful town and it's residents. Hopefully, we will find out who writes those messages.

I couldnt get into this book very much, the characters and plot were ok, but the dialogue and style weren't to my liking.

There were parts that I really liked and quite a few parts that just didn't work for me. Overall, not bad but not a favorite, either.

My love of writing sprung from the first time I jumped on a plane without a book or a charged laptop. It was either write down the stories living in my head or watch the in-flight entertainment, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2.

I live in Texas with my husband, daughter, son, schnoodle, and horribly obnoxious cat. When I'm not writing, I'm a loud-laughing, in-the-books, know-it-all, high-strung lawyer. SO
