“She’d wanted her father to pay more attention to her, and she’d wanted her family to be like it used to be. She hadn’t wanted everything to change so drastically that she may not even survive it.”
As Liza proves herself a basketball star, everyone – from college basketball recruiters to the gorgeous Kyle Reynolds – seems to take note of her. Everyone, that is, except her own father. While her father is busy at his law practice, Liza learns about a strange new religion from Kyle. Could Kyle’s religion help her family? Or is it already too late for her father to make amends?
When yet another broken promise finally leads to tragedy, Liza doesn’t know if she will ever be able to forgive her father. It will take a good friend, a new belief, and a miracle straight from heaven to help Liza see that she still has a choice. The compelling story of a high school basketball star, this is a novel every girl will want, and none will be able to put down!

I think the writing was a little choppy but the story was good.
Dialog is childish. Liza’s reactions are more junior high than high school. Cover is too bland.
I really love this book. I’m not even that far and I think that it’s amazing. The dialog is really believable and rich along with the characters. Keep up the good work.
This is a great YA book. It’s well written and exactly what I would have picked up as a teenager. I enjoyed the storyline and liked the ending. Good job. I’m looking forward to more from this author.
I just finished your book and I’m very impressed with it. It really moved me. I hope you keep writing I’d love to read more from you.
