Wow! Check out this great review of John Paul 2 High Book One on "Just another Pondering Catholic..."
My favorite aspect of this book was the fact that, despite having “Catholic” in its title, this book would be great for ANY teen or young adult. There’s no “secret Catholic stuff” included - you don’t have to be a Catholic or even understand anything about the Catholic Church to enjoy this book. One of the main characters isn’t a practicing Catholic and isn’t very familiar with things Catholic, and when the kids at her new school mention things - such as the Divine Mercy Chaplet - she doesn’t understand. And though she does sometimes feel like an idiot, we readers get a natural explanation (and a reminder of just how hard it is to be a teen, and to feel like you don’t fit in) that’s not ponderous or overly cerebral.

If you're an adult thinking about buying Catholic Reluctantly for your teen, you should read this one.
In other news, I send Book 2 off to the publishers last week! So if the editing process goes well, I hope you'll see the next exciting installment soon.
