Five teenage girls make decisions about boyfriends and premarital sex: Shauntice lives in a world of domestic abuse. Her dad beats her mother, so this Christian teen is not sure she wants a boyfriend. Angel has a mother who is never around, she doesn't know who her earthly father is and she doesn't care about the heavenly Father. She became promiscuous to fill a void. LaKeeta is a Christian, but instead of doing it God's way and waiting for marriage, she has sex out of wedlock. She is seventeen and pregnant. Bridgette feels strongly about abstaining from sex and she will not compromise her beliefs. But this young Christian still has her flaws. Hope is so shy that she's barely heard when she speaks. She lives a sheltered life because of her mother's strict rules, and the word 'sex' isn't in her vocabulary... until she suffers a loss. CHOICES is young adult fiction for mature readers.

About the Author:

Katrina L. Burchett has always had a love of writing-as far back as grade school she enjoyed writing plays for her classmates to act out. Although her husband's military career took her far from her hometown of York, PA, the city plays a central role in her writing. Katrina has devoted the past several years of her life to raising a family. However, as her two sons are entering adulthood, she has seized the opportunity to pursue her dream. Kapri Books, named after her teenage niece, will publish young adult fiction about real issues teenagers face.

Review:

Meet Shauntice Johnston, Angel Nichols, LaKeeta Wilson, Bridgette Anderson and Hope Patterson--five teenage girls from the city of York, Pennsylvania. These girls know each other well. They are real. The issue with them is sex. Four of these girls are Christians, but all five handle the sex issue differently: Shauntice Johnston has a strong faith in God even in the midst of domestic abuse. Will she flee fornication when the pressure is heightened? Angel Nichols doesn't care about God and she is hurting because she feels neglected by her workaholic mother. Her father is nowhere in the picture. Will she continue engaging in regular sex in an attempt to fill that void within her? Would she become a Christian? LaKeeta Wilson, although a Christian, made the choice to get pregnant before marriage. Will her Christian testimony still stand firm? Hope Patterson lives a very protected life because of her strict mother. Things began to turn around in her life after her father dies. Would sex, which was not even in her vocabulary, become a part of her? Bridgette Anderson, because of her faith in God, refuses to compromise her beliefs and practice sex outside of marriage. Will she be able to hold out? This is real drama. Each page will pull you to the next! --The Black Christian Book Review

What is life like as a teen in today's world? Choices gives a candid glimpse of the battles kids face today within their peer groups, school, families, and relationships. As Burchett sheds light on several unique lives, each with their own insecurities and issues, readers are swept away by the inevitable, heart-to-heart connection with the characters. Each girl has a story to tell and a choice to make. Choices is as real as it gets, but as life's decisions weigh us down, Burchett offers a message of hope to take home with us. If you're looking for an inspirational yet life-changing look at reality as youth today face it, you've found what you're looking for. --Pamela Guerreri, Senior Editor & Writer
