The influence of God on Chelsea's life and writing is blatant here. Loved this sweet book :) ...more
This book was amazing! The depth and insight of dealing with relationships and life is so true. The boldness and creativity which was used during the whole story makes the reader relate deeply with the characters. Greatly recommend book to girls going through a hard emotional season... especially when it involves a guy.
The best book I've read in a long time. Part 2 was the most beautiful. It was too real, I smiled & cried as I journeyed with you through the pages. You're a great writer. God bless you and your family. I'm looking forward to reading your second book. ...more

“What if love is something that shapes us because of what we give, not what we get in return? What if God wants us to love people until it hurts--and then continue to love even more?”
