Swept Away

Author: Nicole O’Dell
Publisher: Barbour Books
April 2011
ISBN: 978-1616262525
Genre: young adult / scenerios

In High Stakes, seniors and best friends, Amber and Brittany, are neck and neck in a good-natured competition for a car being given away by a local business.

In Essence of Lilly, sophomore Lilly Armstrong is always looking for ways to escape the confines of her unhappy home. She “invents” youth group activities just so she can hang out with her boyfriend, Jason—the only one in Lilly’s life who makes her feel special. 

What happens when Amber and Lilly are faced with making difficult choices? Will they allow themselves to be swept away? Readers help Amber and Lilly make the difficult decisions and see how their choices create consequences with life-altering results.

Decisions, decisions! How is a girl supposed to choose? Lessons of right and wrong are put to the test in the Scenarios series, where you can test your decision-making abilities in an eye-opening, but safe, way. Each book follows a character up to the point where she has to make an important, life-changing decision—then it’s your turn to choose. Will your choices lead to a happy ending?

I haven’t read any of the scenario books up until now and I wasn’t sure what to expect. What it is a partially written story the you chose the ending. Will the girl make the right choice? Or the wrong choice? What will be the possible ending to the story?

I have a twelve year old daughter and she was interested in reading this. I wasn’t real sure about whether or not I should let her – but both stories opened up opportunities for discussion.

If you are looking for a book that will hopefully teach your tween / teen girl how to chose the right choice and show her what might happen with the wrong choice, then SWEPT AWAY would be the perfect choice. $9.99. 377 pages.
