Spiritual Content- Luke 12:48 at the beginning; Prayers; A couple Scriptures are quoted and prayed; Uncle Ned refers to Heaven as “happy hunting ground”; Mentions of Church going; Mentions of what the Bible says.

Older High School Teens-
My personal Rating-
{Ratings are lowered as ages get higher due to the simple plot.}
This one seems better written then the past Mandie books. Great ending to start the next book! :)

*See my thought on this series versus the younger series, Here!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*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.
