Title: Have A Little Faith In Me

Goodreads Description: “Saved!” meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy that takes a meaningful look at consent and what it means to give it.

When CeCe’s born-again ex-boyfriend dumps her after they have sex, she follows him to Jesus camp in order to win him back. Problem: She knows nothing about Jesus. But her best friend Paul does. He accompanies CeCe to camp, and the plan—God’s or CeCe’s—goes immediately awry when her ex shows up with a new girlfriend, a True Believer at that.

Scrambling to save face, CeCe ropes Paul into faking a relationship. But as deceptions stack up, she questions whether her ex is really the nice guy he seemed. And what about her strange new feelings for Paul—is this love, lust, or an illusion born of heartbreak? To figure it out, she’ll have to confront the reasons she chased her ex to camp in the first place, including the truth about the night she lost her virginity.

When I read this book was a comparison of ‘Saved!’ and To All The Boys Ive Loved Before, I instantly knew I had to read this book. It did not disappoint! There is just something about YA Rom Coms right now that just lift my spirit. Especially when they are pretty clean. Granted this one does touch on underage sex it’s still done in a classy way. As a Christian myself, I was almost afraid to read this book but I can assure you it is very tastefully done.

The friendship between CeCe and Paul is everything. How eager he is to fake his way back into church camp for her to try to win back her douchey ex just shows how much he cares for CeCe. The shananigans really get under way once they finally get to church camp. I loved the girls of Cabin 8 more than anything. Yes, young love is great but nothing is better than close girlfriends so the way the 4 girls bonded really made this even more of a feel good story.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟(5 out of 5 stars) This book is probably one of the best books of the year for me. If this doesnt become a Netflix movie I will be devistated. Sonia Hartl is an amazing writer who clearly understands her characters. I can’t wait to see what more she has in store for us. This book was endearing at times and laugh-out-loud funny at others.

I also had the priviledge if picking my dream cast for this blog tour and although it made me nervous trying to pick the perfect actor based on someone else’s book baby I am pretty pleased with my choices.

Paul – Cole Sprouse
