    Karis Reed went to a guy s house without her mother s permission and she wrote about it in her journal Janice Reed found out about her daughter s little visit and she was not pleased She did not hesitate to ground Karis for being with this guy in his home without adult supervision Karis felt the punishment she received was unfair, so she decided she was going to do what her mother told her not to She soon dealt with feelings of guilt, followed by one problem after the next.Karis thought she was always being punished because of the mistakes her mother had made as a teenager, as if her disobedience had nothing to do with it For a good while there it was obvious she had no clue how to take responsibility for her actions Instead of seeing her part, the problems in her life were always someone else s fault Yes, there were times when her parents blamed her for things she did not do and that was unfair, but she brought it on herself with all of the scheming and dishonesty It became difficult for her parents to believe her even when she was telling the truth.Karis kept a journal and that helped her to cope with life s situations especially when she had no friends to reach out to But when she learned to take her issues to God and to pray for others she began to care about making better choices, honoring her mother and becoming a person of integrity.Trouble in My Way is Stimpson s first young adult novel She did a really good job I loved the story, mostly because it made me laugh.

    Trouble in My Way is a good read and although I rushed through the reading I was able to learn many things from the such as even though times has changed from when my mom was my age and things like technology have been invented, still doesn t change the fact the everything that I m doing and or wants to do haven t been done or thought about by my mother She only wants me to stay out of harm s way because she experienced the outcome of some of the decisions that I wanted and the consequences will stick with me for life and after reading this book I am even respectful of my mother, but here is my synopsis for the book As a teenage girl she did not want to listen to the advice of her mother When all her mother was trying to do is shield her from what she underwent as a teen herself Thinking that her mother was wrong she went against her mother wishes and documented everything in a journal That journal she held all her secrets and she felt that her mom invaded her privacy when reading it The reading of the journal and the contant groundings tore the mother and the daughter apart However help from the church and God they were able to get through everything and see both sides of the story.

    My review of Trouble in My Way by Michelle StimpsonSynopsisIT S ALL HER MOM S FAULT.If she hadn t snooped into Karis s diary, she would never have found out that Karis went to a boy s house without permission Now Karis is grounded, which means no modem, no iPodand no cell phone There s just no way a cute, popular, high schooler can survive being cut off from the world, so Karis is forced to sneak around behind her mother s back But the way she s acting makes Karis feel guilty even if it is her mom s fault and she doesn t like the feeling.Her scheming is starting to cause other problems, too Borrowing a friend s cell phone has turned into a catastrophe that may break up her oldest friendship, and the cutie she met after driver s ed is acting a little scary Will the faith her mother has taught her be enough to help her find her way through this troubleand show both the world and herself that she s a stronger, better person than even she ever knew My review Trouble in My Way is a thoroughly engrossing and realistic portrayal of how young people often see nothing wrong with bending the rules and trying to weasel out of punishment I loved how the entire story was told from Karis s point of view Karis doesn t see her faults, and compared to many kids, she really is pretty good But she still finds trouble even when she tries to behave She simply can t stand to be grounded all the time, so she sneaks behind her mother s back and does what she wants to do despite the restrictions I did the very same thing when I was a teen The my parents tried to chokehold me, the harder I fought to get free This is one of the reasons I don t do this with my teens, and you know what They are really good kids So being harder isn t always better Listening is important as is praising them when they do the right thing But I digress.Karis reminds me so much of when I was young Because when you re a teen think you know everything, but you are really quite naive You think your decision is always the right one, but you only see one side of every issue The author does a great job portraying the mother daughter tension and the issues that come from being a child with divorced parents I have seen this same scenario many times when counseling teens The parents continue to tighten the screws and the teens just keep fighting everything Unfortunately this oftentimes makes things worse Like when Karis started to believe she might as well do the unthinkable since her mom always seems to think it of her anyway Only Karis really did try to be good And she prayed and did have faith But when she put herself in difficult circumstances, she had to fight to keep safe The world is a dangerous place, and Karis discovered that truth the hard way.In the midst of her struggles, Karis learns some tough lessons I love how the author let that play out so naturally that teen readers will have the benefit of learning the same lessons without getting themselves in the same situations that Karis had The characterization was flawless, too I remember the days when all that mattered was the guy was cute The rest was irrelevant But we adults all know many young people who married those messed up, but very good looking men and they totally ruined their lives That message is portrayed very well in this story, too I highly recommend this book because unlike many YA novels, this one offers hope and shows how faith can make all the difference to a struggling teen.Trouble in My Way is published by Pocket Books, a Division of Simon and Schuster, and will be on sale in November 2008.

    I was a great story and great massege but it had way to much drama in it I didn t like the main charcter that Much She was far too hard headeed and had a very bad temper and she was very rude to her parents Honestly I wouldn t recommend this book to anyone at all because it was so good Yes it as very great cover But never judge a book by it s cover right I think the author was trying to do two things at once 1.make it teen related as of in life style friends, family problems, boyfriends, school, parties etc 2 Send a message to christens to trust and believe God through all of these teen problrms Putting these both together wasn t a smart idea,I thnk it wasjust the author Book back on shelf

    I enjoyed this book It was cute I think it s an excellent novel for the younger readers I loved the main character because she wasn t perfect She d get into some drama in a very comedic way I didn t like the mother because she was way too preachy for someone who made mistakes herself Overall, this is a wonderful and thought provoking read.

    I liked the concept of this book, but it was a little tiresome to read I don t know why but the voice of the main character just felt false to me I kept thinking, Gosh, do teens really talk like this I don t know, my daughter is six and is cooler than this girl lol Anyway, it has a nice morale and a nice little lesson in there about faith, trust, and integrity.
