Item Description...
Solana Luz is fed up with the low intelligence and one track mind of the boys she's been dating. She decides to give them up once and for all, focusing her attention on her science project, which promises to bring her the acclaim she'll need to get into a great university. No sooner does she make this decision than her uncle's new ranch hand begins to pursue her. Even though Solana puts up a good fight, she eventually falls for the good hearted Ramon. Their relationship is perfect so why does Solana feel horrible when she gives herself completely to him?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A nice story with a good message  Aug 5, 2004
I picked up GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT at the library near my house expecting a cheesy story with little intelligence. While it's not the best book I've ever read, it was better than I had expected.

GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT revolves around Solana, a beautiful teenage girl that likes a little more attention from boys than the rest of her friends. She's the only non-religious person in her group of friends, and she shares different views on a lot of issues - including premarital sex. They all think it's wrong, but Solana sees no problem with it.

Solana meets - and falls for - the newest employee at her uncle's ranch. She swears that he isn't like anyone that she's ever met, that he actually cares about her, etc. The Brios (Solana's group of friends) worry that Solana may be taking things a little too far a little too fast, but she doesn't care.

I can see how some people may find this book to be "softcore porn for younger kids" because it definately has its moments. GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT is a good book, though. I wouldn't recommend it to younger kids, but for teenagers, I think it's a pretty good book.

Overall grade - B-
a christian book that deals with issues intelligently  Apr 15, 2004
I was very pleasantly surprised by this book and the sensitive, intelligent, non-hysterical approach to the issue of adolescence and sex. While respecting the characters' religious beliefs, it does not shy away from asking questions and representing the kind of experinces many young women have in a manner that is neither didactic, preachy or partisan. The author acknowledges the "gray area" of complex questions, rather than offering pat answers. The characters are given rein to question their faith, their decisions and their relationship to God in an uncondescending tone that respects the intelligence of young women. I would recommend this book to any young reader, as I was so impressed by the mature and sensitive handling of a complex issue.
Christian Parents BEWARE! -- Soft porn for teenie boppers  Mar 24, 2004
I read this book this evening because my teenage daughter was concerned about the content after hearing some of her friends in Youth Group talking about it. From my perspective -- as a Christian mom of two teens -- this book was really not much more than soft porn wrappped in "Christian" garb. A few morals thrown in doesn't undo the loss of innocence a young girl could experience from reading this book. Fortunately, the book leaves out the graphic details of the main character's multiple sexual encounters with her boyfriend (who she's only been dating for a month or so when they start sleeping together). But what it leaves out in details, it leaves up to your imagination ... and I honestly don't want my teenage girls "imagining" what's going on in this girl's boyfriend's bedroom when his mom's not home. Once innocence is lost -- whether it's physically or just in your heart and mind -- it can't be restored. Shame on Focus on the Family for promoting this book. I'm going to read some of the other books in the series to see if they're of the same ilk. I suspect the other books aren't nearly as risque' because the main characters in the other books are Christians who believe in waiting until marriage for sexual intimacy (unlike the main character in this book). But as for this particular title in the BRIO Girls series, steer far away if you value your teenage daughter's moral innocence.
What choice is the right one?  Mar 7, 2003
I liked this book a lot, it talked a lot about the different things that happen. Solana often laughs at her friends when they try to talk to her about keeping herself pure and all that junk, and when she does what she has wanted to do with the perfect guy, she feels so alone, and like a big chunk of her heart, a part of her, is suddenly gone. As she tries to figure things out, she starts to realize how right her friends are sometime, and now all she wants to do is to try to make the right decision. But, is she ready to put her trust in something as unexplainable as God? Read and find out!!!!!!!
