Asking for Trouble by Sandra Byrd

As an aunt to several teen and tween girls, I'm always on the lookout for Christian fiction that has plausible stories with a faith element that is genuine, not forced or cheesy. Sandra Byrd's new series meets both standards, creating a fun reading experience that educates while you read!

"Asking For Trouble" is the first novel in "The London Confidential" series. Savannah "Savvy" Smith and her family have relocated to London, England, leaving behind everything familiar and friendly.

The entire family is have adjustment issues, but Savvy seems to be feeling it the most. Her position with the school newspaper back home went to someone else, and all of her friends are moving on without her.

While not a culture shock, England is still an adjustment--some of the language leaves her befuddled and left out. When a position opens up on the school paper, Savvy jumps at the chance to do what she loves.

Even if it means stretching the truth to get it?

Girls of all ages will learn some rich lessons through Savvy's story, but don't worry: the book is far from preachy. Sandra truly has the perfect blend of faith and story, creating a very appealing series.

I'm looking forward to reading more about Savvy and her British adventures! My thanks to Tyndale for my copy of "Asking For Trouble", and I'm giving it four out of five bookmarks, with a basket of authentic fish and chips as a charm!

Happy Reading!
