"Katy's Homecoming" by Kim Vogel Sawyer

About this book:

  “Just one perfect night Katy gets the chance of a lifetime—she’s been elected to the homecoming court, and there are rumors her crush, Bryce, might ask her to go with him. What could be more perfect? For one unforgettable night she would be able to experience life as many other teenage girls do—a stunning gown, gorgeous hair, jewelry, and makeup. Except Katy’s Mennonite community prohibits dancing as well as fancy dresses and makeup, and her father would not approve.
  When an opportunity arises that could allow her to attend without her father knowing, Katy must decide: Will she hold tight to her convictions, or will she sacrifice her principles for one special night?”

My personal Rating-
This third book had more Spiritual Content than the last one, so that was nice. I admit that I rushed through reading this book, so that I could find out what would happened quicker. I wanted to make sure Katy would do the right thing. ;)

See y’all on Friday 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.
