Love this series. Perfect for young/teen Christian girls.

The things Savvy is going through are so relatable. Plus, we get to see a teenage girl living out her faith the right way.

I honestly wish there was another book to read after this one -- and then another!

I'm very happy with how this one finished out. Very clear, strong message. Beginning was a tiny bit frustrating, but she came to the right conclusions.

I was a little nervous over Savvy’s poor choices toward the beginning. I even left my copy alone for a few days! But I had to find out what happened next - and I’m glad I did! A wonderful way to end the series, with each loop turning into a pretty bow at the end. I liked the happy ending! I’ll recommend this YA series to people who don’t want to read a whole lot about deep and heavy issues. High school has enough of those, and I’m glad Savvy made it!

ISBN: 978-1-4143-2600-9
Genre: Inspirational/young adult

Savvy’s friends are starting to send forwards—just the seemingly innocent ones that promise that if you send this to five things good things will happen and if you don’t bad things will happen. Savvy is drawn in when she doesn’t forward something and things go badly, and when she does, then good things did happen.

And then she catches a friend reading the horosco

Flirting with Disaster is book four of the London Confidential series by Sandra Byrd. Although I'm usually not much of a fiction fan, I devoured this series, and of course this book was no exception. I think one of Byrd's strongest points with her writing is her character development. Savvy's character is so well developed, I often feel as if she is a real person.

In this book, Savvy seems to mature a lot but yet the book isn't a preachy one. She ruins someone else's computer by opening a forwar

This adorable series was quick and fun to read. Savvy is the type of teen girl that I hope to be like. She is spunky, funny, and she never gives up. Savvy is a great role model for other girls to follow and I could relate to her.

There is plenty of London-speak in these books, and I could tell that Sandra Byrd had done her homework. The setting is so different from the United States, and I liked reading about Savvy’s school.

The plot moves nicely from one book to the other as Savvy adjusts

In the fourth outing for Savvy Smith in the London Confidential series, Sandra Byrd once again tackles relevant issues for young girls while making the topics fun, light, and Savvy is completely adorable. Though she is a great example for tweens who may be dealing with similar issues, I love that Byrd has not made Savvy perfect. She makes mistakes (some that make moms cringe) but she learns her lessons and always has a solid Biblical message to impart while she does.

Sandra Byrd’s clever twists a

Review by Jill Williamson

Savvy is almost a full-on member of the Aristocrats. Well, not really, since she doesn’t live on an estate or get rides to school from her butler. But she has several of the Aristocrats cell numbers and they’re texting her! Savvy gets so caught up in all the texting and forwards that she starts to forget who she really is. And then one of her forwards causes a major disaster that makes Savvy put down the phone and think. Is there any way to fix what she’s done?

A great en

This is a really cute book! I'm not a Catholic, yet the Bible verses made sense. If only we stopped fighting in the name of religion and accepted that God is one, then we would have such a peaceful world. Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Parsis are all the same, they believe in their God. As long as they believed and worshipped, there shouldn't be anyone claiming theirs to be a superior religion.

Apart from the religious overtones, this book was really cute. I love Savvy and

A mediocre end to a mediocre series. I am still a bit annoyed that every single Christian fiction series I've ever read has the main character "come to Christ" at some point during the narrative. Why can't they just be Christian to begin with? Predictablyy, the main character just manages to get kissed before her sixteenth birthday. Ugh. Also, this series had so many factual errors and illogical plot points. That also seems to be a trend with Christian series. It's embarrassing, really. I need t ...more

This is the first book i read of the series. I really liked reading a book based off England. But I did have some problems with it. I felt like she spent to much time trying to fit in. I also didn't like that her "friends" walked over her, and didn't let her do what she wanted to do. I wish she stood up for herself.
I didn't feel like her trying to decide who she was voting for was the main problem. That part of the story confused me and I didn't feel it was necessary.

This was a great book.
Savvy learned so much about her faith in God, and sticking up for what she believes.
I found myself learning right along with her.

Flirting with Disaster was a great book to close a great series.
