Kurzbeschreibung

Can we overcome our past?

Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head...and heart. When Katie and her new "wrong crowd" get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

I had a good laugh and remembered my teenage times in the US, plus could image how hard it should be to be send to a new family as a teenage girl.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Laugh out loud funny ... yet respectfully deals with the serious 15. Juli 2007
Von C.J. Darlington - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In Between is one of a few novels I've read where I've actually cracked up every time I read it ... and on every other page. I kid you not.

But not only is In Between laugh-out-loud funny, Jenny manages to weave serious issues into her stories right alongside the humor. And somehow it meshes beautifully. That takes skill. In Between is a YA novel, but it can be appreciated by all ages. In fact, My Dad read it and liked it just as much as I did. My thirty-something friend did as well. It isn't every day that a book comes along that can resonant with such a diverse age range.

Whether you're a teen or not, Katie Parker is a girl we can all relate to. There's something universal about the challenges she faces. We all want to belong somewhere. We all want to be loved. We all need meaning in our lives.

5.0 von 5 Sternen In Between is a hysterical read. 1. September 2008
Von Novel Teen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I haven't laughed so hard from reading a book ever. Jenny B. Jones' debut novel, In Between, is a hysterical read.

Katie Parker's mom is in prison, and Katie is shipped off to live with pretend-o-parents, James and Millie Scott in the small town of In Between, Texas . When Katie discovers her new foster dad is a pastor, she dresses Goth for the first day of school, certain Millie won't let her out of the house. Her plans backfire and Katie is not only forced to go to school with black fingernails, but ends up sitting at the Goth table at lunch, seeing as that's where she looks to fit in.

Unfortunately, a couple of her new friends are not the best influence, and Katie unknowingly is recruited for a midnight vandalism jaunt to the local vintage theater. Katie is the only teen nabbed by the coppers, who take her down to the station and inform her that the Scotts are the owners of the theater. Humiliated, Katie waits for her foster parents to send her packing. They don't, however, and Katie experiences some awesome tough love for the first time in her life.

Katie struggles to adapt to her new, strange world, which includes church, smart friends, a massive dog, and a crazy foster grandma who rides a bicycle built for two. She tries out for the school play and falls for a cute and troublesome senior guy. Her new friend doesn't approve, foster granny doesn't approve, but Katie's of the opinion that what the Scott's don't know won't hurt them. It's a good thing God is watching out for Katie Parker, even though she doesn't have a clue.

It's one comical situation after another with Katie Parker, whose fun, sarcastic voice keeps you turning the pages so fast they catch fire. This is a must read for teen girls...and girls of any age! Looking forward to book two titled, On the Loose: A Katie Parker Production, Act 2.

Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun reading, opportunity for talking points with teens 23. Juni 2014
Von Busy mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Cute, light- hearted read with interesting story line. I read it because my teen daughter read it. Story line and sarcastic tone makes it very appealing to American culture Christian teens. The Christian message is obvious but not cheesy...or complete, in my opinion. The idea that trusting Christ as your Savior will take away all your problems is implied in the main character's encounter with a youth pastor. Still, it gave me the opportunity to remind my daughter that while salvation in Jesus Christ IS the only way to heaven and gives us peace in this life, it does NOT guarantee a life free from trouble or pain. Luke 19:10-19. However, the applied principles of the faith do help one to avoid unnecessary self-created trouble.

That said, it was a nice summer break read that isn't nearly as intense as the literature requirements of the school year.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book 13. Juli 2014
Von Robynhasthree - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book. It has a wonderful message. I don't normally read Young Adult books, but this is one I would want my teenager to read. No trash talk..just good clean life lessons to uncover. I like that it is a Christian novel.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fun Read 15. August 2008
Von Katrina L. Burchett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When her mother was given a prison sentence for selling drugs, Katie Parker was sent to the Sunny Haven Home for girls. She'd been at the home for six months and had just started to figure out how to survive there when she had to move. Pastor James Scott and his wife, Millie, had agreed to take Katie in as their foster daughter.
Katie had felt alone most of her life and she had to deal with difficult situations beyond her control, so for her there was no hope for a better day. She questioned God's love for her and she wasn't too sure about this couple in their fifties; especially since her new foster father was a Pastor. Residing in the home of a man of God certainly wasn't something she'd agree to if she'd been given a choice. But Mrs. Iola Smartly, the woman who ran things at Sunny Haven, knew she had taken Katie to the right place.
Occasionally I do judge a book by its cover. I saw this one and immediately thought it'd be a fun read, and it was. As I read Katie Parker's story I was entertained by her wit, and although her foster grandmother, Maxine, seemed a little off (not quite there, looney tunes, peculiar, downright strange) her unique personality and shenanigans brought even more enjoyment. Again, this was a fun read!
