Outcast? Tyler Bonning is used to life on the outskirts and believes she's beyond caring what others, like the popular and wealthy Ruling Class, think of her. Until she's nominated for prom queen as a joke. Unexpectedly hurt, Tyler decides to turn her nomination into a cause and starts a Prom for Everyone campaign that will help make the event affordable. But just as her cause gains momentum, opposition at school and at home forces Tyler to question not only the campaign, but also the way she's perceived by others. As prom approaches, Tyler faces her biggest challenge yet---one her brains alone won't be able to solve. A perplexing leather book might hold the answers, but is Tyler willing to listen?

Just One Perfect Night Katy gets the chance of a lifetime---she's been elected to the homecoming court, and there are rumors her crush, Bryce, might ask her to go with him. What could be more perfect? For one unforgettable night she would be able to experience life as many other teenage girls do---a stunning gown, gorgeous hair, jewelry, and makeup. Except Katy's Mennonite community prohibits dancing as well as fancy dresses and makeup, and her father would not approve. When an opportunity arises that could allow her to attend without her father knowing, Katy must decide: Will she hold tight to her convictions, or will she sacrifice her principles for one special night?

After This Summer, Katy's Life May Change Forever Katy is looking forward to the best summer ever. Her closest friend, Shelby, comes to stay with her when an accident forces her to miss her family's mission trip. But when Katy's aunt faces a serious illness and needs the girls to run the fabric store, Katy's plans fall apart. Suddenly what should have been a summer of relaxation becomes filled with long hours at the shop. But then a Mennonite boy visits her community for the summer. His presence complicates her life, as do her feelings for Bryce, her non-Mennonite crush. Katy has several decisions to make by the time August arrives, the largest being whether she will attend school in the fall and follow her dreams, or continue on in her Mennonite life to help her family. Katy struggles to choose between the two worlds she loves, but the final decision may be out of her hands.

Sink or swim? Paige's engagement to designer Dylan Marceau shocks the fashion world. Although Paige appears to be happy, Erin wonders if it's true love or just a desire for attention and publicity. As Paige's love life takes off, Erin is feeling pressure from Blake to take their friendship to a romantic level. But is she ready? These two very different sisters still have one thing in common---their fashion TV show and all the drama that comes along with it. As they prepare for a trip to film in the Bahamas, the Forrester sisters discover that paradise isn't all it's cracked up to be. Can they do the right thing in tough situations---and the right thing for each another---in a business that often encourages the worst?

A very bumpy ride. Emily Curtis is used to dealing with her problems while under the hood of an old Chevy, but when her mom dies, Emily's world seems shaken beyond repair. Driven from home by hospital bills they can't pay, Emily and her dad move in with his wealthy sister, who intends to make her niece more feminine---in other words, just like Whitney, Emily's perfect cousin. But when Emily hears the engine of a 1970 Dodge Challenger, and sees the cute gearhead, Zander, next door, things seem to be looking up. But even working alongside Zander can't completely fix the hole in Emily's life. Ever since her mom died, Emily hasn't been able to pray, and no one---not even Zander---seems to understand. But sometimes the help you need can come from the person you least expect.

 I Love Zondervan books, they are always clean reads and they have heartwarming stories. I really do think that you will enjoy these stories as much as I have. If you are a parent and really guard what your teens read, you can be at ease with these books. They are mostly Christian based and usually have a moral, life changing plot. Zondervan Publishing is the largest Christian book distributor in the world... for a reason. Check these books out, you will not be disappointed ;)

  1. I haven't read many Zondervan books, besides my Bible. ;) But I'm a big fan of Thomas Nelson publishers. They have a lot of great reads, too!

  2. It sounds like Katy the Mennonite girl has a tough life. I haven't read any Zondervan YA, but it's a solid publishing company. Waterbrook has good YA titles, and of course, Thomas Nelson like KM mentioned! (One of my fave writers, Jenny B. Jones, publishers under Thomas Nelson.)
