Jenna Conrad, Peter Altmann, Melanie Andrews, Jesse Jones, Nicole Brewster, Miguel del Rios, Leah Rosenthal, and Ben Pipkin form a very close group when they are brought together by tragedy. But they couldn't be more different from each other! Two devout Christians, a cheerleader, a dark, brooding type, a football player, and a nerd, not to mention the others, make up this diverse group. Join them as they grow together in friendship and in faith. Readers will delight in the first two titles in this inspirational new series:
Get a Life: Clearwater Crossing #1
Kurt Englbehrt, a linebacker on the Clearwater Crossing High football team, has been diagnosed with leukemia. To help raise money for medical bills, the students at CCHS are putting on a carnival. Jenna Conrad and her best friend, Peter Altmann, form an unexpectedly tight group with the other volunteers and the carnival is a wonderful success. But just when everything seems to be going so well, Kurt dies. The tragedy devastates Jenna, Peter, and their friends, and they struggle with the question of why the Lord must take away.

Praise for Clearwater Crossing:
"Clearwater Crossing breaks the last taboo in young adult literature--the search for God. In these savvy, contemporary stories, kids struggle to make sense of their lives and to figure out what faith might or might not have to do with it. That a mainstream publisher should acknowledge the obvious presence of the religious dimension in American life is a major breakthrough."
