"Storm Season" by Anna Marie Kittrell {Teen Week!}

{Welcome to Teen Week! Every quarter we're going to try and do a Teen Week! A week where every weekday has a new review of a Christian book written just for teens! You’re reading the day four of this quarter's! :) } {Day One Here!} {Day Two Here!} {Day Three Here!}

About this book:

  “For best friends and high school seniors Molly, Lenni, and Bianca, the future is bright and right around the corner. With graduation just weeks away, the girls are ready to leave behind the emotional insanity of high school and step together into a saner, less dramatic chapter of life.
  But when a courageous stranger named Raley Hale risks his life to save the girls from a deadly tornado, his fearlessness leaves them thunderstruck. As his injuries heal, the mysterious hero manages to claim each of the girls’ hearts while reclaiming his strength.
  Can friendship survive the brutal winds of jealousy, heartache, and betrayal? Or will graduation from Redbend High really mean goodbye forever?”

My personal Rating-

{Add a ½ star for girls who have read the previous books in the series.}
Aww. Okay this was bittersweet. Bitter because of Raley (‘Nuff said right there, folks) and because it’s the last book in the series. Sweet because I’ve really enjoyed getting to know these girls (I still want to give Bianca a hug!) and it was fun seeing them all again. If you enjoyed the previous books in the series, you’ll probably like this last one as well. :)

See y’all Tomorrow with the last Teen Week review!
