Summer is here! School is out, and it won’t be long before the kids are complaining that they’re bored. Books geared to an individual child’s taste can help keep the summer break fun and exciting.

This may not be the best written YA book ever, but it did have a compelling plot idea. Could sixteen-year-old Quinn Cutler have become pregnant while remaining a virgin? While Quinn and her family struggle to come to grips with this most perplexing of mysteries (because Quinn insists she never had sex), her father is campaigning for Congress putting them under scrutiny. Quinn’s pregnancy becomes public, religious fanatics come calling, and Quinn goes into hiding. Can she find the truth in the lies she’s been told and discover the origin of her child? Is she carrying the next messiah? How does her family’s history play a role in everything that’s happened?
Read this book for the odd twists and turns it takes. Remember how hard it is to get anything unique published and that’s why I think this is a bold book- for the author and the publisher. So many things are derivative and everybody these days seems compelled to write a trilogy. Hooray for something different!
