A life worth living:
`Saying no to sex and beating the bully' sums up the story! Sammy's friend, Amanda - not a Christian - is tempted to sleep with her boyfriend. Sammy shares her own beliefs with her friend. But Sammy's Christianity is making her a target for bullies at a school; living for Jesus is really challenging. I really wanted to write a book that dealt, in reality, with the issue of bullying, and with the Christian view of sex. Saying no to sex isn't a popular option these days, and yet God wants us to live like this if we aren't married. That's a huge challenge when you're an adult, let alone when you're a teenager in today's climate. So in this book I've tried to put across how God wants us to live, without being `preachy' or `starchy'.
