The Fruit of My Lipstick

The new year … when a young girl’s heart turns to new beginnings, weight loss, and a new term of chemistry!

New Yorker Gillian Chang returns for her second term at Glory Prep in San Francisco ready to share her faith, dive into her studies, and have fun with her new friends. She may be brilliant—playing half a dozen musical instruments and able to recite the periodic table backward—and ready to take on any challenge, but love is the one test she’s never taken.

Gillian’s falling hard for a junior who’s already preparing for his Ph.D. in physics. She’s got his attention—but can she keep it when she’s never quite able to measure up and be the perfect girlfriend? She gets that he’s under a lot of pressure, but is that a reason to take it out on her? In trying to help, she conceals more and more from her friends. So when scandal breaks with Gillian in the middle, even Lissa and Carly wonder where the truth lies …

“Shelley Adina hit a perfect balance. Her characters are strong Christians, and their faith is a big part of the story … but she never really hits you over the head with it. It’s just a part of their lives, just like shopping and cute boys are a part of their lives. …I laughed out loud during many of Gillian’s descriptions of her family, actually hearing my Asian husband’s aunties’ voices in my head. Shelley provides a fantastic glimpse into Chinese-American culture and the struggle of trying to fit into two different worlds.” Fictionistas.com

 

“The second book in Adina’s series, set in a posh San Francisco boarding school, allows readers to get to know the characters better … and never gets too preachy. The mystery will pique the reader’s interest.” RT Book Reviews, 4 stars!
