Just in time for summer, Young Adult Christian author Stephanie Perry Moore has done it again! Author of over sixty inspirational titles set in the South, including her highly acclaimed Payton Skky series, Moore has just released the first volume in her widely anticipated Lockwood Lion Series (Saddleback Publishing).
Giving readers access to both parties' perspectives helps them see where both Blake and Charli go wrong, as well as where each has valid needs and complaints. At the same time, each story is complete within itself, and the two complement rather than repeat each other. An engaging pair of tales that communicate a thoughtful message with a light touch. (Fiction. 12-16) ~~ Kirkus Reviews
The girl’s stories are part of Cheer Drama - Always Upbeat, Keep Jumping, Yell Out, Settle Down, and Shake It. The boy’s stories are Baller Swag - All That, No Hating, Do You, Be Real and Got Pride. Together they tell the story of high school couples at Lockwood Lion High through the eyes of the cheerleading squad and the varsity football team. The first letter in each book, C-H-E-E-R, and B-A-L-L-ER, represent the names of the featured high school couple.
