Be careful what you wish for …
It’s the last term of junior year and Carly Aragon can’t wait—because it means a chance to compete in the prestigious Design Your Dreams contest. For a budding clothing designer who’s also a scholarship kid, this could mean the difference between launching a career … or merely settling for a job.
But an ugly surprise is waiting for her when she returns from spring break with her family in Mexico. The flamboyant, rich, and arrogant Lady Lindsay “Mac” MacPhail is her new roommate—and she proceeds to steal Carly’s privacy, her confidence, and worst of all, the boy she’s crushing on! But when weird, threatening messages start infiltrating Mac’s email, Carly is the only person she can turn to, and they must figure out what’s going on before the threats escalate into real danger.
Who could imagine that Mac’s fate would rest in Carly’s hands—or that Mac would hold the key to Carly’s success at Glory Prep? But God works in mysterious ways—even when it means digging deep to find the courage to face them.
“Reading Be Strong & Curvaceous flooded me with memories of my high school days. While the surroundings and scenes were different, there were certain staples that read just like my life: the close friendships, the longing to be accepted, the desire for my first real boyfriend, and most of all, being introduced to Jesus. I only wish Shelley Adina’s [Glory Prep] series had been around in my day. I recommend it for any young adult who wants to escape to another world and find that they are not alone in their feelings and experiences.” Mandisa, American Idol finalist and contemporary Christian artist
“The third book in the [Glory Prep] series is inspired by a true story. It’s a quick read with topics relevant to today’s teenagers, like fashion, cliques, and dating.” RT Book Reviews magazine
