Diary of a Teenage Girl - Face the Music : Diary Number 8

by Melody Carlson

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Chloe Miller is a typical American Christian girl-except for the fact that she's living every teenage girl's dream. She's the leader of a Christian rock band called Redemption.

She's not perfect. When school troublemaker, Tiffany Knight, asks questions about the meaning of life and Christianity, Chloe's dislike of the girl prevents her from fully sharing the gospel. While on tour, Chloe ignores Tiffany's numerous e-mails. Shock and guilt immediately descend on Chloe when she receives news of Tiffany's death. Where is Tiffany spending eternity!

Melody Carlson is an award-winning author of over ninety books. She has fascinated teenagers with her Chloe series and other teen, women, and children's books. Her books have a realistic edge.

To some people, this book may be offending or too gritty, but I felt the book reflected real life and emotions. Christian values and struggles presented in the book are just like those in any teens' life today. Chloe eventually chooses the right path to what God wants in her life--whether itís romance or serving Him. Every chapter ends with a song written by the main character. Highly Recommended. -- Jessica Loughner, Christian Book


Book Jacket:

Redemption has made it to the bestseller chart, but what Chloe and the girls need most is some downtime to sift through the usual high school stress with grades, friends, guys, and the prom. Chloe struggles to recover from a serious crush on the band leader of Iron Cross. Then, just as an unexpected romance catches Redemption by surprise, Caitlin O'Conner - whose relationship with Josh is taking on a new dimension - joins the tour as their chaperone. Chloe's wild ride only speeds up, and this one-of-a-kind musician faces the fact that life may never be normal again.
