Item Description...
Serenity adopts a new tactic for attracting Derek and asks Eddie on a date to try to make him jealous. Rather than being what she expected, though, it turns into an opportunity for her to have a heart-to-heart with Eddie--and she finally realizes that she's not the only one struggling to understand God or to control her raging hormones. Volumes 7-10 in the Serenity series all feature two stories: the continuation of Serenity's adventures and a bonus "movie" that has been created by Serenity and her friends. In volume #9, the movie is a biblical epic called "Esther, Queen of Persia."

Great Read for tweens and teens!  Apr 9, 2009
My kids REALLY enjoy these books and they come to me with LOTS of questions about the characters and why they do certain things. I OWN 10 of these books and LOVE THEM! You don't have to be into Japanese art or Manga or even know what those terms are...

I work with youth full time and THIS is the way that many of them act. The questions presented are ones that they have, the situations are realistic and in REAL LIFE, these are the kind of characters I have in my youth group. They are relational for kids in the teenage and tweenage years, but are not written for Suzie Sunday School as their crowd. They are aimed at presenting the Gospel to kids who would normally not even be interested. Serenity accepts Christ in Book SIX but it is important to see what it took to get her there.

BOTTOM LINE: This series IS racey, to reach the "right crowd" but not inappropriately so. The topics are edgy, but not anything that teens and tweens aren't experiencing in your OWN living rooms and schools. They are also inexpensive and entertaining, but not for us, 20's to 30's. Those that didn't think thre was adequate character development or that the characters were flat, you're right...but you should probably be reading something more on level!
Serenity Series: Volume #9 "Choosing Change" -Parental caution  Apr 2, 2009
Here is what I observed that may be of some concern:

*There are direct references to the subject of virgins in several
*There is a direct reference to condoms as a necessity in
preparation for a date. Later on in the story, there is a clearly
identifiable picture of them in the wrapper being thrown into the
*There is a reference to a male character struggling with
pornography on the internet which includes a picture of their
computer screen showing "Adults Only, 18+ to enter" on the screen.
*There is a reference to two teens considering sexual intercourse.
*The characters in this book appear to be in high school and are
all "well developed" and some of the pictures are anatomically
*In the portrayal of the story of Esther, it appears that Xerxes may
have either hit or violated Esther.
*There is a mention by the character of Esther about "awaiting
Xerxes pleasure".
*The characters in the book do not turn to mature adults or other
authority figures for counsel but instead to other teens.

On a positive note:

*The characters are dealing honestly with their struggles
*The characters support each other in choosing right
*The characters do pray and ask God for help
*There are strong Christian teen role models in the stories.

Overall, I observed that this particular volume deals with a variety of mature sexual issues. (I was surprised to learn that 3rd graders were reading this material) I can see the appeal of the book, particularly to the comic book crowd. I believe that the overall message of the book is excellent.

However, in my opinion, I do not think ithis book is appropriate for the younger kids (under 14)unless it is done with parental supervision and permission so that the mature content can be discussed. I do not recommend it for grades K-6 at all. In my opinion, I feel the subject matter in this book is beyond what the elementary level should be reading and discussing among each other.

I have not read any of the other volumes in this series. These issues of concern may be specific to this one particular volume. I recommend that parents review each book in the rest of the series for content before allowing their child to read them. If the rest of the volumes are reviewed for content and found to be suitable, I believe that grades 6+ are a more suitable audience for this series.
