More About Melody Carlson
I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

Feeling green Feb 16, 2007
This is number two of a series. It is about two girls that get in a huge fight over a boy named Timothy. What happened was, Timothy was going out with Shawna and then he broke up with her to go out with her friend Jordan. Now Shawna is spreading all kinds of rumors about Jordan. This book has a lot of drama in it, so if you like books with drama in it you will love this book. What I like about this book is, that it has good descriptive words and really helps the reader visualize what's going on in the story. I also like the title Deep Green. I like reading books with a lot of drama and this book has a lot of that. It was so good that at one point I didn't want to put the book down. I think you will really enjoy this book.
The Love Triangle May 22, 2006
Deep Green is a very dramatic book about a girl named Jordan who somehow gets trapped in a Love Triangle. Jordan is a cheerleader at her school along with her so-called best friends. Now that Jordan has become a cheerleader she has also earned a good reputation with the boys. Jordan finds herself in love with a senior, Timothy, who is her best friend, Shawna's, ex-boyfriend. The real drama comes when Shawna finds out about Jordan and Timothy. So Shawna tries everything in her strength to get Timothy back. Jordan isn't about to give up the one she loves, so she does everything she can to get him back in her arms. Every attempt that she makes becomes a failure. So finally Jordan finds help in God.
Deep Green is a very good book. This book shows what kids go through on a day-to-day basis. Deep Green also teaches you that there are more important things in life than relationships, things like God and friends. This book is a great influence on teens because it shows you that no matter what trouble you go through, God will always be there for you.
Deep Book Apr 24, 2006
This book is the second book in the true colors sequel. It talks a lot about friends being jealous of each other because of a guy and what they would each do to get him to be a part of their life. One of the girls is in so much trouble and confusion that she goes back to one of her old friends that she dumped when she made cheerleading and started hanging out with the cool kids. I liked this book because it talks a lot about teenage girls average life and some people might be able to relate to this book and figure out some of there own problems. I disliked this book because even if some girls are going threw what the book talks about some things are hard to believe that they would ever happen. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read any other of Melody Carlson's books.
An accurate portrayal of the pitfalls of high school dating, social mores, and teenage insecurities Mar 16, 2006
For readers new to Melody Carlson's series that centers on specific emotional states, this second installment continues where the first ended. In book one, DARK BLUE: COLOR ME LONELY, Carlson featured two high school girls who went their separate ways after one-half of the duo, Jordan Ferguson, made the cheerleading squad and callously abandoned her longtime friend for the popular set. After months of mental and emotional torture, Jordan's former best friend, Kara Hendricks, finds a personal faith in God and begins reordering her once shattered world much to Jordan's continued disapproval.
DEEP GREEN: COLOR ME JEALOUS includes both characters, yet the focus is now on Jordan's trials and tribulations as the newbie to the cheerleading world of cutthroat competition and backstabbing smile to your face, so-called friend/enemy camp. It doesn't take long for Jordan to unwittingly step on some socially uppity toes before a war breaks out, and Jordan becomes the sometimes victim, other times co-initiator scheming her own brand of vengeance tactics.
The script? Jordan steals another cheerleader's boyfriend and Shawna Frye is out for blood. Specifically, Jordan denies causing the breakup between Shawna and Timothy Lawrence and soon begins denying her own personal standards in hopes of keeping her new boyfriend close by and interested. Enter the often shortsighted and regret-laced party scene, where it becomes clear that Timothy is neither the gentleman nor the selfless hero Jordan had envisioned. In true nightmare form, Timothy places himself back in Shawna's arms. Jordan is crushed, then angry, then consumed by jealousy.
Carlson's portrayal of the emotional posture of a jilted and envious teen is compelling, and it hurts to read about Jordan's pain (much of it self-imposed). Still, the author knows how to sustain interest and Jordan's journey to a healthier, saner, mental place is entirely believable. By book's end, Jordan realizes that Kara's faith just might be more than a passing fad, and she takes a serious and introspective look at exactly what believing in Christ can mean for her personally.
Young adults will appreciate Carlson's accurate portrayal of the pitfalls of high school dating, social mores, and all the lingering doubts that make their way to a person's deepest core.

twisted love triangle Sep 28, 2005
Jordon Ferguson used to be best friends with Shawna Frye until they both fell in love with Timothy Lawrence. Jordon was trying to win Timothy from Shawna when she joined the cheerleading squad. She also dropped her old best friend, Kara, on the sidelines too. Ever since Jordon had been getting everything she wanted like Timothy from Shawna and Making cheerleading, she almost forgot about everyone else's lives. Shawna and Jordon had to cheer together so Jordon tried being friends again with Shawna. She gave Shawna her Beatles collection to try and get to be her friend again. Timothy and Jordon went to a party were Timothy got drunk and started going out with Shawna again. It was Ashley's party and her house was getting trashed so she kicked everyone out and found Shawna and Timothy in the bed together. That week Shawna was getting back at Jordon for taking her boyfriend away by stealing Jordon's pants and car keys. This was a mistake because then Jordon got suspended by the coach and also got a ride with Timothy the next week. Something happens to Timothy and Shawna which ruins them from there real life being fulfilled.
I really like this book because it did not bore you over the same things again and again. I also really liked this book because it got you thinking about everything that was happening and you could always picture everything that was going to happen because it gave you clues. It did not give the answers away before it needed to be given away. I also really dislike the book because the author did not explain all the things very well and it was also in some ways confusing.
I think anyone who likes crazy love stories would like this book. Also, people who are into reading books about kids or friends fighting each other to win a guy over would like it. This book is kind of related to Dear Nobody.
