I LOVE this book!!!!!! This is an great book for older teen girls!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, there is some adult topics, like REALLY adult topics in the book; so I would suggest the book for ages 13 and up. But it still is such an awesome book!!!!!!!!

The book is about a reporter who has to go undercover in a Christian org. to find all the juicy gossip on the ‘real’ life of Christians. But while she is writing her story, she finds God all over again.

The book was AMAZING!!!! But, there are adult topics; they are only mentioned in passing, but they are there. (Gambling, anorexia, drugs, a word that rhythms with h’orn’ and is a VERY bad thing.) They stuff was only mentioned like a couple times in passing, and it was only there to look like she is finding a story. But it is in there, so you have been warned!

Over all, I definitely suggest this book to older teens to read. It is a wonderful story and is sooooooo eyeopening to the word around us. (Plus, it’s funny!) Have a great day. -The Young Llama Reader.

All she wants is a job. All she needs is religion. How hard can it be?

Maizy Grace Stewart dreams of a career as an investigative journalist, but her last job ended in disaster when her compassion cost her employer a juicy headline. A part-time gig at a Nashville newspaper might be her big break.

A second job at Steeple Side Christian Resources could help pay the bills, but Steeple Side only hires committed Christians. Maizy is sure she can fake it with her Five-Step Program to Authentic Christian Faith–a plan of action that includes changing her first name to Grace, buying Jesus-themed accessories, and learning “Christian Speak.” If only Jack Prentiss, Steeple Side’s managing editor and two-day-stubbled, blue-jean-wearing British hottie wasn’t determined to prove her a fraud.

When Maizy’s boss at the newspaper decides that she should investigate–and expose–any skeletons in Steeple Side’s closet, she must decide whether to deliver the dirt and secure her career or lean on her newfound faith, change the direction of her life, and pray that her Steeple Side colleagues–and Jack–will show her grace.
