“Who Made You A Princess?”–My Review


***Giveaway note: The giveaway for Laura Lee Heinsohn’s book, Cracking the Parenting Code, has been postponed until a later date.***

**This is your last chance to enter to win a set of the All About Us Series. Leave a comment, and you’ll be entered. The winner will be announced late Sunday night, May 31.**

Who Made You PrincessShani Hanna finds herself at a crossroads in life.  She can either continue to live a life of luxury with every want and whim satisfied, or she can give all of it up to follow her heart.  On one hand, she’s being courted by a Prince, on the other, there’s a down to earth surfer boy who adores her.

Once again Shelley Adina delivers a fantastic story. Her settingshelleyadina1 may be a posh school, and her characters have unlimited platinum credit cards, but the underlying story is a dilemma teens face everyday: Who do you choose to serve?

I found myself identifying with Shani as she struggled with the questions of faith. Ms. Adina did a great job showing the internal feelings of a non-believer as her main character struggled with the ‘does God really care for me’ question. She even went further by showing God’s love for Shani instead of having friends attempt to explain this complex concept.

This series is filled with extremely wealthy people who are Christians. It’s rarely that you see this type of storyline. I find it refreshing to see the atypical in a book. One thing Ms. Adina does well, is atypical, or non-stereotypical, writing.
