Being seventeen and a senior in high school is hard enough. But having my best friend turn her back on me and then becoming a target because I’m a Christian, that’s . . . unbearable.
Alli’s faith has always been a big part of her life. Even though her best friend, Tessa, isn’t a Christian, it’s never come between them. Then, Tessa makes the cheer team. When two cheerleaders target Alli for her Christian faith and Tessa ultimately chooses popularity over friendship, Alli struggles to make sense of it all.
Ridiculed for her faith and being disowned by Tessa leave Alli desperate to prove that she’s not that different from everyone else. Her vulnerability leads her to succumb to the attention and flattery of Chad Barton: West Morrison High School’s football star and every girl’s dream. Smitten by his irresistible charm, Alli can’t believe her good fortune. But Chad’s intentions aren’t as innocent as Alli believes, leaving her pride wounded and her heart shattered.
When Tessa ends up missing one night after leaving a party with two strangers, Alli is devastated and terrified. Will her faith be strong enough to not only forgive her best friend but also pray for her safe return?
