In spite of a newfound faith, sixteen-year-old Kim Peterson faces a dreary Christmas and New Year because her mother has been diagnosed with cancer.
Kim's World Turns Upside Down
When Kim's mom is diagnosed with cancer, Natalie steps in, as true friends will do, to round up hundreds of people to pray for Mrs. Peterson's healing. Her health begins to improve, and Kim's love life begins to flourish...but with a non-Christian. Natalie warns Kim to break off the relationship, but is that just because she's jealous? Or is God trying to speak to Kim through Natalie's counsel? When her mom's health suddenly declines again, Kim blames herself. Maybe she never should have become involved with Matthew, especially as she's tempted to give in to his pressure to have sex. Kim's faith is hanging in the balance. She wants to believe that prayer will prevail, but the obstacles seem so big...
"Thursday, December 29 "
"My dad and I are both feeling a little torn about Mom right now. On one hand, we all act like everything is just peachy, perfectly normal. But at the same time, it's like we're walking on eggshells too. Like we're all thinking the same thing-is this our last Christmas all together?"
Kim Peterson's mom has stage four ovarian cancer, and Kim's done enough research online to know the odds are dismal. But Kim and her best friend, Natalie McCabe, and a lot of other people are praying that God will heal her mom.
Kim's mom makes her promise that she'll continue with life as normal: Nat, youth group, violin, her "Just Ask Jamie" newspaper column, even hanging out with Matthew. But how can life be normal with cancer hanging over your head like a dark cloud?
And then she's getting flak from Natalie because Matthew's not a Christian, and Nat's afraid he'll drag Kim down. But Nat's dating life isn't exactly smooth sailing, either. Both girls are praying a lot-and waiting to find out what's meant to be.

Story Behind the Book
"My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time, full of sharp contrasts-love and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reached my peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and change hearts-speaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now " -Melody Carlson
