"Worth the Wait" by Laura Jackson

About this book:

  “Ellie Lansing has a picture-perfect life with a close-knit family and the perfect boyfriend. But her world is suddenly knocked off center when her drool-worthy boyfriend cheats, and her always-has-it-together mother is diagnosed with cancer. Ellie doesn’t get it. She always does the right thing—doesn’t God owe her a happy life? Through her heartache, Ellie learns that sometimes what seems like the end is really just the beginning and that what God has for us is always worth the wait.

My personal Rating- 
(and a half)

{Why was the mean girl named Lindsey?! Hmphf.} 
While best for girls entering or in High School (Public, Private or Homeschooled, it doesn’t matter) or are fixing to go to college, it had a girl who had emotions most girls with boyfriends feel. (Don’t look at me! I’m trusting The Lord on my guy! No dating for me!) 

See y'all on Wednesday for another review!
