Laura has a chance to experience the truth of this secret when she gets her driver's license, starts a new job at the local Gap store, then observes kids from her school in the act of shoplifting, and even suffers the theft of her car. Worst of all, her friend Joy Beth, who seems to possess everything in life, develops diabetes. Together the girls realize that possessing things sometimes leads to being possessed by them.

Reviews - What do customers think about False Friends True Strangers (Nama Beach High V2)?

false friends and true strangers  Apr 19, 2005
Laura Duffy is getting used to `Nama Beach High, but she's still got some rifts to work out with Dad. First off, she's got to get a job, and she finds one at the Gap. She's finding a best friend in Celeste. But her job isn't doing well, she has a hard time getting along with some coworkers who she eventually catches shoplifting. But when her car is stolen, Laura learns to make a stand for what is right. She pays dearly in the end, but finds that it is worth it, for doing the right thing brings her closer to God. This is book two in the `Nama Beach High series, preceded by "New Girl In Town." I thought this book was better than the first one.
A Beautiful Book for Young Adults  Sep 7, 2004
Laura Duffy has settled into her new school, Panama Beach High School a.k.a. "Nama High". She just got her driver's license; she has friends to eat lunch with and a cool job at The Gap in the mall. All is right in her world, that is, until it begins to unravel when she bangs into a Darth-Vader-black Chevy Silverado pickup belonging to Vance Woodruff, the school tough guy. In the words of her best friend, Celeste, "No stinkin' way!"

Unknown to Laura, this is the beginning of the end of her life as she knows it on this planet. One night after work, she discovered her car was stolen. Also, she witnesses a shoplifting incident which puts her in an awkward situation with her boss. Her life seems to be taking on a life of its own and she feels totally out of control of it.

Laura also learns some shocking news about one of her friends. Then, she is embroiled in a violent act committed by Vance Woodruff and his cronies. Reality soon hits home. With the help of Mrs. Iaacsen, the school counselor, and the "Mystery Group," Laura learns the truth about God's blessings and His secret powers as well as how to handle her own responsibilities.

Nancy Rue beautifully captures the nuances, language, and mixed-up thoughts and emotions of a typical teenager. I highly recommend the "Nama Beach High" series for adults as well as young adults. Also available is the first book of the series, "Nama Beach High: New Girl in Town".
