One mother damaged. One family tested. One daughter determined to find her place.
Claire Lee’s life changes when she must take charge of her siblings after her mother becomes depressed from a difficult childbirth. Frightened by the way Mama sleeps too much and her crying spells during waking hours, ClaireLee just knows she’ll catch her illness like a cold or flu which hangs on through winter. ClaireLee finds comfort in the lies she tells herself and others in order to hide the truth about her erratic mother. Deciding she needs to re-invent herself, she sets out to impress a group of popular girls.
With her deception, ClaireLee weaves her way into the Lavender Girls Club, the most sophisticated girls in school. Though her best friend Belinda will not be caught with the likes of such shallow puddles, ClaireLee ignores Belinda’s warnings the Lavenders cannot be trusted. ClaireLee drifts further from honesty, her friend, and a broken mother’s love, until one very public night at the yearly school awards ceremony. The spotlight is on her, and she finds her courage and faces the truth and then ClaireLee saves her mother’s life.

ABOUT BOOK: Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she’s leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill.
A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

I just finished the novel on the new Sampson and Delilah movie - how wonderful it was!
I want Christian fiction to speak to my heart and emotions. Well developed characters with flaws and romance and suspense added is just a big plus. If an author can touch my emotions, my heart or the book is a page turner, automatic 5 star ratings.
I am reading Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, by Helen Simonson.
Good morning, everyone! I've enjoyed all your answers, and I appreciate you showing up this month. I've drawn the winner and will notify Nora to let her know. Thank you!
I'm so sorry everyone, I've been doing a big edit and just finished it. I forgot all about March's drawing. Oh, fiddle sticks. I'll not forget Aprils!!!
