New Girl In Town-Nancy Rue for Teens

Mrs. Rue enters high school and explores bullying to the extreme, teen depression, and the need to fit in.

Main character Laura moved to a new city, starts a new school and feels completely alone and out of place. This book was a real tear jerker for me because I experienced many of the same feelings when I was in high school 25 years ago.

I don't think adults realize the stress teens deal with and the devastating effects it has on young people, emotionally, physically and spiritually. New Girl in Town delves into these dark areas that adults tend to ignore in themselves and in their teens.

New Girl in Town is a book for high school age girls as it touches on more grown up themes. I'd like to continue the series to see if I'm right in who I believe Laura's secret admirer is and how the girls in "group" open. bond, and develop their friendship.

I'd like to thank Zondervan for providing this book for my personal and honest review.
