“Decisions, decisions! How is a girl supposed to choose? Lessons of right and wrong are put to the test in the Scenarios series, where you can test your decision-making abilities in an eye-opening, but safe, way. Each book follows a character up to the point where she has to make an important, life-changing decision—then it’s your turn to choose. Will your choices lead to a happy ending?”
This book has two book in one. While both books were different, both books taught good morals. And that is something you don’t see in books often. I like how you can read these book and not only get to choose what paths the characters take, but you get a life lesson out of it.

The first book was based on cheating, Should you come clean or let your best friend take the fall for it. As always, I take as many paths  as I can take to see the different outcomes. I was pleasantly surprised how pleased it all turn out. It had a happy ending with things coming out right.

The second book was based on having faith in God. Not all things work out and sometimes you must pray and wait. Not every family perfect either. We all make mistakes and we all do things that we regret. Remember: a family that prays together, stays together.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    Hm. With the emphasis on a strong message do either of the stories ever get too preachy? I always like a more subtle message in a story, but both lessons in these stories seem like good ones:)

    Awe. The cover is so sweet.

    2 for 1! I like that both stories seem different but have a good message.

  3. Sounds like a sweet book. Not for everyone, but nice.

    Sounds interesting. Did you think it was a little stick sweet though? I like a nice balance.
