"Castles In The Air" by Anita Higman & Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “Nori’s clock is ticking.
  Nori’s biological clock has been going off forever, it seems. Loud and clear. She tries to tell herself that she isn’t really ugly…or fat…or useless. She’s a successful entrepreneur, after all! So where are the eligible, interested men in her life? They don’t seem to exist!
  Zachary Martin knows he’s a nerd. He can’t even carry on a conversation with Nori without making a fool of himself—like when he choked on some candy in Nori’s store or bought the stupidest clothes to impress her. . .
Man looks on the outward appearance, but God sees the heart. Will Nori and Zachary ever see themselves—and each other—the way God does? Will they trust God or their self-help books to find true love?
 "A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul." Proverbs 13: 19””

My personal Rating-

Can teen girls relate to this book? Hmm, no, not really, but I’m a firm believer that we all need to be reminded that we are God’s one-of-a-kind creations—especially teen girls ought to be reminded of this fact! This had the humor of every Janice Thompson book and Zachary was so dorky, it was adorable. This was much better than any Hallmark movie. ;)

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.
