MY LATEST BOOK
DEBBIE’S SUMMER AWAKENING
Debbie Hall and her best friend Sarah James just graduated from eighth grade.
Debbie looks forward to enjoying her summer with Sarah and starting her new job at her parents’ burger joint. However, Sarah is more interested in searching for a boyfriend before beginning high school.
Misadventures happen at the lake, her job, and at the movies, including having a crush of her own. Debbie learns first-hand from Sarah just how cruel girls can be when boys enter the picture.
Will Debbie’s summer bring true love, true friendship, or both?
EARLY PRAISE FOR DEBBIE’S SUMMER AWAKENING
This book is a must-read for any teen who has been tossed into the turbulent waters of dating while attempting to keep alive the close friendships of childhood. Not only will Debbie’s Summer Awakening resonate with every teenage girl, it might also give adolescent boys a bit of an edge up when it comes to the workings of the female mind.
–Bonnie Papenfuss, author of From the Window of God’s Waiting Room and From the Window of a Mid-Century Childhood.
