Please leave your comments here and share one thing you’ve seen teens do in order to be part of the in-crowd that you might have tried or did try yourself as a teen.

Drawing will be on Friday Oct 3rd. Cut off for comments is 12AM by the comment timestamp. Be sure to leave me a way to reach you if your name is drawn. Emails can be disguised in a format such as forest_rose[at]yahoo[dot]com

You can read my review of Book 1 and the first chapters of both books.

    Sadly, I have seen kids change the way they dressed and talked to be part of the in crowd and I sooo did that when I was that age. I hated pretending to be someone i was not and if i could go back, I probably wouldn’t have. 🙂 Thnks for the great giveaway! This books sounds soooo good. angelleslament @ gmail.com

    One of the things I found hard was laughing at stupid (questionably moral) jokes… I did it a couple of times but felt so horrible about it that I stopped trying to please people in those ways pretty quick. Thanks for the giveaway, I would love to win!Lindseyladyufshalott at yahoo.com

    I’ve seen teens who were good students neglect school assignments so that their peers would not think them nerdy. :-(smilingsal55[at]yahoo[dot]com

    I have seen teens start drinking and smoking just so they could ‘fit in’ and be part of the crowd. It really sad to see that happen. They only end up hurting themselves. Thanks for the giveaway, I would love to read the books!carolynnwald[at]hotmail[dot]com

    I see teens at our church youth group hanging all over each other because they think they need a boyfriend/girlfriend instead of trusting that God already knows who they are supposed to marry. It makes me sad because I know where that can lead…Jannaryanx6 at msn dot com

    We are talking years ago… though it doesn’t really matter, the problem has been the same then as it is now. I tried following my piers in smoking and drinking, failing at both miserably. But then my younger son, as an almost teen did the same thing. He finally pulled away from much of that this past year and he is almost 30 years old! He is now watching his younger daughter do the same things he did and it scares him (and me) pretty bad. Generational curse? My dad did this same thing. Hmm…Pam Williamscepjwms at yahoo dot com
