Growing up with a distant mother and absentee father, Michelle's childhood has been far from idyllic. Her only attention comes from her partying friends and the guys who are more than happy to give her the affection she longs for. But when one party goes wrong, Michelle's grandparents hatch a plan to get her out of Chicago and away from her so-called friends. College plans are low on Michelle's priority list, especially with no money to pay for it, until her grandparents offer to foot the bill for her entire tuition. There's just one catch. Michelle must choose between three schools - all hours away from Chicago and all Christian colleges. Michelle's reluctant choice leads her to an unfamiliar place, where she's faced with new relationships and unexpected decisions that could change her life and her heart forever.

Let me start by saying this is not your typical Christian fiction book. It has mention of sex but not in an inappropriate way. It does not go in to any detail.
We all are sinners so this is not something you have not read about or heard about. It's written in a very classy way.
Now on to the storyline it was wonderful and I should tell you that this is book two in the Cornerstone series. Goodbye, Magnolia is book one they can be read as stand alones but I am happy that read book one first so that I got Michelle a lot better.
I gave this book 4 stars and I happily recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
