Welcome to the Young Adult Christian Book Club, an online community for teens who love to read and those who love to read young adults books of any age.
We'll talk about mainstream and Christian books-- what you got from them and how they effected you. If you love books as much as I do, but can't find the right place for you to talk about them in a Christian atmosphere, this place is for you.
Each month we'll pick two books-- one Christian pick and one mainstream-- to discuss. I'd like to start after the holidays, so if you get any good books for Christmas, email me your picks to get us started. We'll try to give everyone enough time to get to the library or a bookstore (or bum a copy from your BFF) before the month starts.
Our book choices for the month of January are
