THE RIGHT & THE REAL by Joelle Anthony

Jamie should have known something was off about the church of the Right & the Real from the start, especially when the Teacher claimed he wasn't just an ordinary spiritual leader but Jesus Christ himself. But she was too taken by Josh, the eldest son of one of the church's disciples, and his all-American good looks. Josh was the most popular boy at school, too, and the first boy outside the drama geeks to give Jamie a second look. But getting her dad involved in a cult was not part of the plan when she started dating Josh. Neither was her dad's marriage to the fanatic Mira or getting kicked out or seeing Josh in secret because the church has deemed her persona non grata.

Jamie's life has completely fallen apart. Finding her way back won't be easy, but when her dad gets himself in serious trouble, will Jamie be ready to rescue him, and maybe even forgive him?

I totally loved Anthony's first book, Restoring Harmony. It had the perfect mix of realistic future and contemporary teen issues. This second novel looks like it will be equally full of power and impact, if not more so. I have a feeling this will prove itself to be an important book for teens to read. This is an author that I will be sticking with for sure, and can't wait for this book to come out!

Release Date: April 26, 2012
