Cool Beans

Author: Erynn Magnum
Publisher: NavPress
April 2010
ISBN:  978-1600067112
Genre: Young adult / contemporary / chick lit

Everything seems to be going perfectly for Maya Davis: She has a great job at a coffee shop, gets along with her parents, and is happily single. That is until her best friend starts dating Maya’s high school sweetheart.

This funny, heartwarming fiction story by best-selling author Erynn Mangum uses the power of story to challenge teens to discover the relevance of faith in their relationships and their lives.

COOL BEANS is the first book in Ms. Mangum’s A Maya Davis Novel series. This is out of print (in print) unless you buy it used but it is still available on kindle.  I greatly enjoy Ms. Mangum’s books, chicklit for teenagers – but they appeal to this mom too. I also have two girls who love her books and can’t wait to read them.

I enjoyed Maya’s sense of humor and her sarcasm and the way she struggled to relate her life with God. The only thing I didn’t really like is that she went on and on about how she needs to tell her best friend she is dating an old boyfriend and she just doesn’t. . . and what was with the old boyfriend (dating something like five years) not recognizing her?

I have to say I loved Jack. Absolutely loved Jack. I can’t wait to read Latte Daze. If you like chicklit or first person/present tense books, you will love COOL BEANS. Highly recommended.

304 pages. Available in ebook and paperback (from second-hand sellers).  5 stars.
