Spring Breakdown

Melody Carlson brings her seventh Carter House girls book to teenagers in Spring Breakdown. I have not read the other six books in this series and realized that it could be a stand alone book. I am sure there would have been more background behind the girls in the book from the previous ones in the series, but I enjoyed this one even without some of those details. This would be another great book and series for any teen girls you have in your life. Christian and non-Christian teens and the struggles they face. Even the Christian girls are not portrayed as perfect which is something that I really appreciate in this book. Every teen girl faces temptations and struggles, even if they are believers. Check out the first chapter of the book below.

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books for teens, women, and children.

"I think real-life experiences inspire the best friction," she says. Her wide variety of books seems to prove this theory.
