Book Review: Asking for Trouble

I don’t usually read YA, but I was pleasantly surprised with ASKING FOR TROUBLE.

Savvy Smith has just moved to London with her family and feels totally out of place. Vying for a spot on the school newspaper, she finally lands it- as the delivery person. Will she get the column she craves and a place with friends?

What I enjoyed about this book, was it doesn’t have the typical teen talk that just makes them sound like “cool” is the only word in their vocabulary. Savvy is a sensitive person, with a heart to obey God and do what is right. I admired her honesty even when it hurt and the lessons she learned that are essential to the Christian walk.

This short novel is not filled with heart pounding adventure or even much worry for the character, but it is a fun story set in a different country with its own quirks that Savvy must adapt to and in the process learn some important lessons. I enjoyed the uniqueness of what she had to learn, great lessons for today’s girls that aren’t always covered in today’s fiction.

ASKING FOR TROUBLE is a fun, fast read, perfect for the 12 to 16 year old crowd.

Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for my copy of this book to review.
