"Out with the In Crowd" by Stephanie Morrill"Out with the In Crowd" by Stephanie Morrill

"Out with the In Crowd" by Stephanie Morrill is a girly teen Christian book. It follows Skylar, a high school senior, as she is faced with incredible decisions in life. Her sister is pregnant with a baby whose father wants nothing to do with her. Her boyfriend is flirting with his ex-girlfriend. Her parents are going through a separation. The list of problems goes on. Also, Skylar has some questions of identity as she leaves behind her partying ways to become a woman of Christian morals. The book is in a series, but readers do not feel lost. After the first couple of chapters, readers feel they know the characters and what they did in previous books. At times, Skylar seems to be whining, but who can blame her? The book consists of mostly dialog and some personal thoughts (as well as dreams) from Skylar. Teen girls may not necessarily identify with all of Skylar's situations, but they will feel compelled to learn what happens to this "real" Christian student.
