Overview
This Is Now It's Kim's senior year and, while everyone's looking forward to graduation, she's got so much going on she can barely make it through the day. Natalie, pregnant with Benjamin O'Conner's baby, believes it's God's will for them to marry, and Ben sees it as his Christian responsibility to do so. Major red flag? He doesn't love her. Then - surprise! Kim's birth mother in Korea sends her an intriguing letter, making Kim question her reluctance to get to know another "mom." And what about Maya? Is God calling Kim and her father to open their hearts and home to Kim's biracial cousin whose mother was just sentenced to five years in state prison? Kim has been through so much already, but that was then ... Does she have enough faith for now?

This Is Now
It's Kim's senior year and, while everyone's looking forward to graduation, she's got so much going on she can barely make it through the day. Natalie, pregnant with Benjamin O'Conner's baby, believes it's God's will for them to marry, and Ben sees it as his Christian responsibility to do so. Major red flag? He doesn't love her. Then-surprise Kim's birth mother in Korea sends her an intriguing letter, making Kim question her reluctance to get to know another "mom." And what about Maya? Is God calling Kim and her father to open their hearts and home to Kim's biracial cousin whose mother was just sentenced to five years in state prison? Kim has been through so much already, but "that was then" ... Does she have enough faith for "now?"
Saturday, November 11
I've talked to Nat twice this week. But only on the phone. Both times she just glossed over what happened last weekend. She told me everything was "fine." But without any details. It was the kind of reassurance that isn't reassuring at all. I know she's covering something up.
That was then...Kim Peterson has had a lot going on the past few years: writing a teen advice column, finding a new faith, dating and breaking up for the first time, losing her mom to cancer...Kim has learned to turn it all over to God day by day, relying on Him like she never has before.
Now Kim's best friend, Nat, is pregnant and soon to be married to Ben O'Conner, Caitlin's younger brother. Nat is starry-eyed, believing that once she and Ben are married, God will bless them and everything will work out because they're doing the right thing. Kim's not so sure. Is marriage the only solution for two seventeen-year-olds with a baby on the way? Why won't they consider adoption? Kim knows about that firsthand-and is about to find out even more...
Reader's guide included
Story Behind the Book
"In book four, Kim's life is still shadowed by the loss of her mother, but her faith is deepening. My best friend lost her mother to cancer in high school, and I was very involved in counseling, encouraging, and praying with my friend as she worked through her grief. That experience helped me write Kim's story from an insider's perspective." - Melody Carlson

More About Melody Carlson
Melody A Carlson I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent teen read!  Jul 25, 2006
I have read every one of the Diary of a Teenage Girl books--Caitlin's, Chloe's, and Kim's, and this is one of the best in the series. Of the three, Kim comes across as the most "real," especially after her mother dies of cancer. The only bad thing I have to say about this series as a collective is that there are some things that happen in all the books. For example, many people who have read the Caitlin books will see a big similarity between her best friend Beanie and Kim's best friend Natalie. But overall this is a great series, and a wonderful book. I recommend it to any girl from 12-22 (jr. high-college age), but do think parents should read it before their younger daughters read it, as drugs, alcohol, and sex are mentioned (albeit negatively) in every portion of the series. Although most people won't have to go through everything that Kim goes through, everything is dealt with in a realistic manner, and often it feels like you could be reading your best friend's diary. Melody Carlson is one of the best authors for young adult Christian fiction; I have yet to read one of her books that I did not like.
