Item description for Daisy Chains (Friends for a Season) by Sandra Byrd...

Kylie Peterson and Rachel Cohen become fast friends when both are invited to help out with a wedding. Kylie's cousin Jed is marrying Rachel's cousin Davina, and Jed asks the girls to help with the flowers. But of more interest to the girls is the fact that the bride's family is Jewish and the groom is not.

This difference in religion leads both Kylie and Rachel to explore their own beliefs. Kylie figures she was born a Christian, like the rest of her family, but she starts to question that assumption as she learns about Davina's faith and belief in Jesus. Meanwhile, Rachel is hurt--did Davina stop being Jewish when she became a Messianic believer? The girls hope to discover the truth for themselves, but what will that mean for their families?

"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile." Romans 1:16

Reviews - What do customers think about Daisy Chains (Friends for a Season)?

This is a very good book!   Nov 29, 2006
I've read about all of Sandra Byrd's books for young adults and I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them---Daisy Chains is no exception. Sandra Byrd's books allow me to empathize with the characters, take on their experiences, learn their lessons, and incorporate them into my own life.
If you like a book with interesting and dynamic characters, a warm message, and good insight and/or if you're simply looking for some advice, this book is for you!
Highly recommended for all young readers  Jun 13, 2006
Part of the "Friends For A Season" series, Daisy Chains by Sandra Byrd is the entertaining young adult novel of Kylie Peterson and Rachel Cohen and their quick friendship as the two of them are both invited to help out with a wedding between separate cousins of each. As the two progress as friends, their fascination with their cousin's religion, (one being Jewish and the other not), opens the gate to an interesting investigation, Daisy Chains takes the young reader through the women's most intimate struggles with their emotion, self-discoveries, and their faith. For its entertainingly creative interpretation of teenage life and concerns, Daisy Chains is very highly recommended for all young readers.
I love this series!  Apr 15, 2006
Daisy Chains is the fourth and final book in the beloved Friends for a Season Series by Sandra Boyd. I am sad. I've read all four books, reviewed three of them and enjoyed each and every one for their individual story and message. Each book is a "stand alone" but the series has a distinct flavor and message that will be missed.

I loved that each book was about two girls who became friends for a season. We learned what they care about, what their struggles were, how they learned to live with themselves, their families and with God.

Fourteen-year-olds Kylie and Rachel's commonality is that their cousins are going to be married to each other in Victoria, British Columbia. Kylie's cousin Jed is the groom and Rachel's cousin, Davina is the bride. The stumbling block for Davina's family is that she has accepted Christ as the Messiah.

With the backdrop of school ending, summer jobs beginning and a wedding to prepare for, Kylie and Rachel each begin to examine their faith. Kylie thought she was born a Christian but learns there is more to becoming a follower of Christ than a label. Rachel is confused. She doesn't understand that while Davina believes in Jesus as the Messiah, she is still Jewish. While she observes her cousin living her faith, she begins to examine her own beliefs.

Boyd carefully and thoughtfully examines and portrays the spiritual journey of a Jewish girl who is confused and confronted with the idea that Jesus just might be the Messiah. And at the same time she examines the journey to understand another young girl who thought she was a Christian--just because she was born into a home where they called themselves Christians.

Armchair Interviews says: Daisy Chains is not only a good read, but also one that will educate at the same time.
