Today we have a blog tour. Hope's Journey was written by Stephanie Worlton. I was given a digital copy in exchange for a unbiased review.
Meet Sydney, she's a 17 year old senior in high school. She has a group of friends that she hangs out with, mostly guys. She's always felt more comfortable with them. She's not sure that she always understands the girly girls. And then there's Alex, her very awesome boyfriend. Alex and Sydney are very much in love, in fact, they seem to be perfect for each other. They are getting ready for graduation and for the life that will come for both of them after graduation, Sydney at college in San Francisco and Alex on a mission where ever he's sent to. Unfortunately the discovery that Sydney is pregnant changes those plans for both of them. Sydney is not going to be in any condition to go to school for a little while and a mission is definitely out for Alex at this point. But will this trial bring them closer together or push them farther apart? I really enjoyed this book, it was kind of funny, I was reading this book on my phone, when ever I was out and needed something to do, and I was reading another book when I was at home, but the characters and the story in this book really sucked me in and I had a hard time reading anything else, no matter where I was. I really liked Sydney and I really liked her grandmother's character. It was kind of crazy to me to see the way that Sydney was treated by those in their town that should have known better. Sydney was looked down on, as if she was trash, even though we are all loved by our Heavenly Father. I really thought that Sydney's character was amazing to go through that. I loved this book! It was really an eye opener to me, just in the matter of teenage pregnancy.
