Item description for Girl Overboard (Serenity) by Realbuzz Studios...
Overview When Serenity decides that being a Christian means she has to make some major changes in her life, she takes the blue dye out of her hair, gets rid of all her old clothes and posters, and begins wearing clothes that are more Amish in style. She sets such strict rules for herself that her fun-loving personality disappears. Luckily some wise friends intervene and help her understand that becoming a Christian doesn't mean that she has to give up everything that made her a unique and joyful person. Volumes 7-10 in the Serenity series all feature two stories: the continuation of Serenity's adventures and a bonus "movie" that has been created by Serenity and her friends. In volume #10, the movie is a spoof about obsession and is called "Fraulein Stein's Monster."
The Outer Girl Is Different, but what about Her Heart?
Its makeover time as Serenity sets out to do a radical overhaul on her closet--and her image. But major changes in her hair, her clothes, and her attitude just leave her feeling all wrong. Can she find her own voice--and the right hair color--before she loses herself completely?
Then, in a mini-movie that harkens back to the horror films of the 1930s, Serenity and her friends create "Fraulein Steins Monster." When a mad scientist becomes obsessed, will the monster soon be the master?

Reviews - What do customers think about Girl Overboard (Serenity)?
A Great read for tweens and Teens! Apr 9, 2009
My kids REALLY enjoy these books and they come to me with LOTS of questions about the characters and why they do certain things. I OWN 10 of these books and LOVE THEM! You don't have to be into Japanese art or Manga or even know what those terms are...
I work with youth full time and THIS is the way that many of them act. The questions presented are ones that they have, the situations are realistic and in REAL LIFE, these are the kind of characters I have in my youth group. They are relational for kids in the teenage and tweenage years, but are not written for Suzie Sunday School as their crowd. They are aimed at presenting the Gospel to kids who would normally not even be interested. Serenity accepts Christ in Book SIX but it is important to see what it took to get her there.
BOTTOM LINE: This series IS racey, to reach the "right crowd" but not inappropriately so. The topics are edgy, but not anything that teens and tweens aren't experiencing in your OWN living rooms and schools. They are also inexpensive and entertaining, but not for us, 20's to 30's. Those that didn't think thre was adequate character development or that the characters were flat, you're right...but you should probably be reading something more on level!
