Motorcycles, Sushi & One Strange Book by Nancy Rue

I just love, love, love the title. Don’t you?

Now, we’re talkin’ bout Nancy RUE’S book, not Nancy Drew.

Okay, now that 1) you know I love the title and 2) we’re talkin’ bout Nacy RUE, here’s what the book’s all about.

In the first book of Nancy Rue's new Real Life series for teens, fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher has ADHD and often uses her bubbly charm to cover up her problems. But when her biological father appears from nowhere and tells her she'll be spending time with him in Florida, Jessie finds she'll need more than charm this time. In fact, a mysterious book might be the answer to her problems

If you’ve finished the Sophie series by Nancy Rue, you probably moved onto the Lily series. And if you’ve read the Lily series - this is one step up.

From page one, Rue throws you into fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher’s ADHD mind. And she doesn’t stop there. The whole book is filled with oh-mi-gosh moments and lovable characters.

As Jessie learns about Jesus through a mysterious book and works through her ADHD, the book follows her through it all. The series is appropriately named: Real Life. When I finished the book, I felt like I had just stepped out of her mind back into the real world.

To sum it up: I loved this book because it was true to life.

Nancy Rue is the best-selling author of books for teens and adults, including the Christian Heritage series and the Lily series. Nancy has been an English teacher, a public speaker, and a contributor to several publications. Her books have sold more than a million copies. She and her husband, Jim, live in Tennessee.
