Opportunity Knocks Twice Aug 1, 2008
I have always enjoyed reading the Brio Girls books. This story did not hold my attention very well. I was soon annoyed with all of the shallow and stupid things that guys were saying about girls. Not all guys are that icky. I had a hard time believing that Jessica would be able to date Tyler so easy without putting all of her emotions into the relationship. Also, there is no way that I guy could be best friends with 3 girls without someone getting attached. Maybe I am getting to old for these stories. Still the message of Gods love is still intertwined in each chapter so I give the author thumbs up for that.
A Hard Decision!!!!!!! Oct 17, 2007
In this book Tyler's ex-girlfriend moves back to Stony Ridge and shows up at a Brio photo shoot,mean while tyler still has feelings for both her and Hannah.But the last time he and Jessica (ex-girlfriend) were dating he was torn between his Brio gang and her.So now he has to decide Jessica or Hannah. I really enjoyed this book and cant wait to read the rest of the books in the series.
Hannah or Jessica? May 5, 2005
Tyler Jennings is stressed when his old girlfriend, Jessica, moves back to town. Even though he cares about her, he greatly feels that she has interfered with the relationship he has been trying to pursue with Hannah, the new girl at school. Even though Hannah and her father agree that "courtship" is the proper way to find a suitable mate, Tyler is still determined that he can make Hannah his. But now that Jessica is back, Tyler feels as though he is being forced to choose between the two. Will he pick Jessica? Even though she is rather possesive and materialistic, she is one of the best-looking girls at school, and she tries hard to be a good girlfriend. Or will Tyler pick Hannah? Even though she is pretty and very kind, she has many personal rules that Tyler finds a little bit extreme, and she would never be able to date him even if she liked him back. And then there's the biggest question of all: If Tyler starts dating a girl seriously, what will become of his relationship with the Brio Girls?
This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it, and I actually found myself becoming excited when I had free time to read it. The only parts I didn't like were:
1. The Brio Girls could be pretty rude to Tyler sometimes. 2. In real life, Tyler wouldn't hang out with a bunch of girls if he was the only boy. And if he DID, then he would get seriously made fun of by other boys. The kind of relationship that Tyler has with the girls is pretty unrealistic and occasionally sickening. 3. The characters interrupted each other too much! I know the author was trying to make it realistic, but people don't interrupt each other THAT much in real life.
I recommend this book to older girls. Even though it had its times when it could be unrealistic or slightly annoying, it was still a good teen novel. My only caution is that, since the story focuses around romance, there is a lot of kind of nasty talk in it that younger girls shouldn't be reading. But if you're between the recommended age limit (which I agree with) then this is a good book that is worth reading if you want a Christian-based romance novel where the characters frown at the trashier kids instead of going along with them as if it's "no big deal".
