"Tessa: From Fear to Faith" by Melissa Wiltrout

{With the Holidays, I've been neglecting my poor blog, please forgive about a review to make up for it?}

About this book:

"Is there no way out?"
Tessa loathes being forced to work in her father's illegal drug business. Yet her ill-fated attempts at running away only deepen the abuse. Guilt and shame press in, pushing away her real friends and reinforcing her own criminal tendencies.
Tessa yearns for freedom - and something else. Then a neighbor introduces her to God and salvation through Christ. But will faith be enough? Can she overcome the forces that bind her before it's too late?”

 Series: As of now, no.

(and a half)
In this book, we follow a teenaged girl named Tessa around for a year of her life- and a very hard one at that. We see read how much Tessa longs for a safe home, a happy family that doesn’t yell at each other, and a pet. Though “Tessa: From Fear to Faith” had it’s negative moments, it’s not sugarcoated, it shows what being involved in drugs can do.

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher for this review.
