Book Review - Just As I Am by Virginia Smith

A delightful read with a profound message.

Virginia Smith has created a memorable character in Mayla Strong. Not because Mayla sports a myriad of hair colors or has jewelry in unordinary places, but because she’s a new Christian trying to be a REAL Christian.

With each struggle Mayla encounters, she turns to God for guidance and finds that He leads her into areas that cause her to grow in her Christian walk. She is a beaming example to those around her.

With a fresh voice and an unforgettable character, Smith tells a story that will have you laughing one minute and in tears the next. With real topics that face today’s young people, we are reminded not to judge by appearances.

Recommend Just As I Am to all ages, but especially to teenagers.

Check out my website’s featured author link to see an interview with Virginia Smith.

Happy reading…

The website looks great and professional! When did you pull out of the information driveway and onto the superhighway? Keep up the great work on all your writing and I cant wait to see the preview for the book we discussed yesterday.
