Nevaeh & Ronald, Shimone & Marques, Sierra & Corey... Three young couples share good times and, with God's help, work through the bad times.
A commitment to abstain from sex until marriage is tested. A choice to have sex results in pregnancy, and now two teenagers, who are nowhere near ready for the responsibility, are going to be parents. And promiscuity leads to a diagnosis no one would want.
I started reading this book last night, and I couldn't wait to finish it today. There was

Being too quick to apologize and too ready to accept another's behavior, the characters in Living Consequences were plastic at times. It's been my experience that Christians are less likely to forgive than the main characters within these pages, and more likely to condemn. I was startled by the "who cares" attitude of Marques' parents when learning that his 17-year old girlfriend Shimone is pregnant.

The only reason I gave it three stars is because it had me interested enough to want to know how

In her debut novel, young Ms. Holmes paints a very interesting, realistic picture of teenagers in their struggle to remain celibate in a world where doing so is unpopular.

While Ms. Holmes takes a realistic approach to writing the story, she does so in a way that makes it a wholesome read for the entire family, especially young ones.

Great debut!

This is a great novel. I can honestly relate to it, this book talks a lot about temptation, but it also makes you realize that thought the trials and tribulations people go through God is always there. This an amazing YA novel. Need more books like it

Very good book. Has a little suspense. Has enough spirituality for any christian. I related closely with Nevaeh. Loved her character and her strength.

Awesome book! It shows there is no healthy relationship without communication and God. Each couple helped each other when things got tough but they also turned to God.
