Free (Kindle / NOOK / Sony) A Girl Named Mister

A Girl Named Mister by Nikki Grimes (Christian Fiction)

Product Description
Quote:
Nikki Grimes, a bestselling author known for titles such as Dark Sons, Barak Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope, and Voices of Christmas has written a gripping book from the perspective of a girl named Mister (Mary Rudine) who finds herself momentarily distracted from her faith commitment to purity by a handsome boy named Trey. After one night of weakness, Mister finds her entire life has changed, even if she can't yet accept all the changes occurring within her are real. When the emotional scars of losing her innocence are more lasting than she imagined, Mister turns to a book of her mother's, which contains poems from Mary's perspective. As both Mister and Mary's voices play out in the story, a full and meaningful portrait of Christian faith, trust, and forgiveness emerges, along with the truth that God can use even the most unplanned events in our lives for his greater glory.

Thank you!

This one should be good -- and I almost missed it!

This is one of those young adult novels written in the form of poetry -- I love those. This one is written by someone who is actually quite well known for her poetry. It's about a 14-year-old teenager dealing with a pregnancy who finds comfort from a book of poems about the biblical Mary and the uncertainties she felt when pregnant with Jesus.

Yes, it is published by Zondervan, a religious publisher, but don't run away screaming just yet. If this helps, it doesn't strike me as a typical inspirational YA novel. Some of her previous YA novels were published by Penguin, and she won the Coretta Scott King Award for Bronx Masquerade (a YA novel about a poetry slam in the classroom). She also received a Coretta Scott King Honor for Dark Sons, a YA novel in free verse that tells the story of a modern boy called Sam whose father leaves him and his mother and the story of Ishmael, the son of Abraham. (Although now published by Zondervan, it was first published by Hyperion, a mainstream imprint.)
