Kianna Ravencamp is twenty-six and never been kissed.

Most of the relationships around her are crumbling, or were never strong to begin with. One other thing holds Kianna back from a relationship, her weight. She's big, and believes that turns guys off. What chance does she have to ...more

This is a great story with character and heart. Kianna's voice is honest and self-reflective as she contemplates why love just hasn't happened for her yet. A faithful, fun, and motivating read that reminds you to not lower your standards, but to remain true to who you are and what you want out of life, while waiting upon the Lord. The reminder to "Dream big, be bold, no fear!" is a fabulous recitation to keep in mind. Kianna takes a stand, goes after her dreams, and finds what she's been waiting ...more

This is a thoroughly charming book. Main character Kianna sets a very good example for young Christian women, while still being a relatable character. Exploring the themes of self-confidence, faith, and relationships, this book gives you a lot to think about.
