Check out this edgy, YA Christian Comedy by an amazing new author, Alice Kim:
Jane believes God will forgive her for acting against her convictions in pursuing that dream guy, after all, she’s only seeking to save the lost.
High school senior, Jane Emerson, isn’t one to attract attention, especially from the male population. She was perfectly content with that until a humiliating incident catches the eye of her secret crush, Jeremy Jenkins. What’s a people-pleasing, melodramatic, overly-imaginative Christian girl to do? Make Jeremy a mission field, of course!
Go to parties every weekend? Done. Diss your most steadfast friends and pay no mind when one of them is about to drop kick a crowd of touchy, feely drunks? Easy peasy. Lie to the parents, get labeled a “Jesus-freak”, and drink that weird/awful concoction someone calls “orange soda”? Check, check, and check. Be so passionately kissed, it could only be labeled as epic? Absolutely. Being a missionary has its share of dangers and perks.
Despite being blind to the obvious, Jane is blessed with loyal friends. Isaac Martinez won’t let her out of his sight even though it’s his kisses that are mistakenly credited to Jeremy. And when Cora Friedman has a heart-to-heart “slut” talk with Jane, everything is poised to change.
