Holly's Story

It's been a very long time since I read a storybook. I must admit that it's really difficult for me to find a nice and suitable one for myself to enjoy. I had read the Laurel Shadrach series which was one of my favourites! After then, I don't remember reading something that I am really interested in.

One of the books from the series

But now, recently, I found a book on my nearly-abandoned book shelf entitled Angels in Pink: Holly's Story by Lurlene McDaniel. I'd seen it before but, never bothered to read But, I was kind of bored at that time so, I decided to give it a try.

Holly's Story

Synopsis:
Pink Angels and best friends Holly, Raina, and Kathleen have been through a lot over the past year. The summer before their senior year promises to be busy but fun, as Holly and Raina return to their full-time volunteer jobs at the hospital and Kathleen, who needs the money, works at the hospital gift shop. Of course, Raina and Kathleen will be spending as much time as possible with their boyfriends, Hunter and Carson.
Holly is happy for her friends, but she can’t help feeling a little left out when hanging out with the two couples. She did finally have a boy interested in her, but the e-mails from her secret admirer, Shy Boy, recently stopped coming. What has she done wrong? Will she ever meet her mystery guy in person? But Holly’s world forever changes when tragedy strikes close to home. It’s not fair that the most loving and giving person she knows is the victim of a random crime. She, Raina, and Kathleen will need each other now more than ever.

As I read, I really got myself into it! And believe it or not, I actually cried when I read it. Weird because I suddenly felt like as if I was watching a movie. Tears just kept rolling down from my cheeks. At this point, I really must say that I am truly touched by the story.
Aside from that, I realised that no matter what happened to us, it's all part of God's plan. No matter what, we should not lose our faith in Him.

It's really a nice, simple and inspiring book especially to the teenagers so, feel free to give it a try! I don't mind lending it to anyone of you if you are interested. ^_^ Just let me know!

Hah! I thought you were talking about the book "P.S. I Love You", the main character's also called Holly. XD

P.S. I Love You is also a worthy read if you've got the time. =)
