Have a Little Faith in Me by Sonia Hartl
Page Street Kids
Publication Date: September 3rd 2019
Cece has a plan: follow her ex-boyfriend to a Christian summer camp to get him back. He broke up with her to return to his (abstinent) faith, so what better way to show him she is worthy than participating in his Jesus camp? Her plan goes sideways when she realizes she doesn’t want him back, and perhaps the one she does want has been by her side all along.
Snarky and irreverent, Have a Little Faith keeps a light tone while dealing with serious subjects. Starting with Cece throwing water filled condoms out her window at her best friend next door and going though her adventures at camp, it includes lots of real consent and teen sex talk. This sweet friends to lovers romance moves along at a rolling pace to keep readers engaged.
