About the Book:
As the popular darling of the junior class and heiress to the five-star Monrovi Inn empire, Kate has both everything and nothing. She’s bored with school and life…until she locks eyes with Caleb at a school dance.

Caleb is new to Kate’s exclusive prep school, and it’s clear he doesn’t fit in. In fact, he and his dad work in maintenance for Kate’s father. And while Caleb knows better than to spend time with the boss’s daughter, it seems that every time he tries to back away, something pulls him right back in.

When their parents demand that they are to stay away from each other, they learn of a fight between their families that occurred more than fifty years ago. It’s a mystery Kate doesn’t understand…but a legacy Caleb has endured his entire life.

With the world stacked against them, Caleb and Kate will have to walk by faith to find the path that God has planned for them.

My Review:
Okay. I’m a sucker for YA novels, I guess! I read Beautiful for Cindy’s Beautiful blog tour and fell in love with her teen fiction novels. I was absolutely thrilled to participate in this Caleb + Kate tour. I was highly pleased with this book, too. Cindy has a wonderfully natural talent at creating a story that appeals to all ages.

My favorite part of this book, was the way Cindy wrote in both Caleb and Kate’s points of view. That really helps to keep the reader hooked! It really made it hard to put this book down, that’s for sure. I really loved that I could feel special connections with Caleb and Kate as I remembered what it was like to be a teen and deal with adolescent issues. The plot was extremely realistic. Outstanding!

I loved, too, the spiritual struggles each of the characters dealt with. The message of standing strong in your faith no matter what is an important lesson that everyone could benefit from.

Guys & girls, young & old, alike, should take the time to read this! There is something in this magnificent 5 star worthy book that will capture you and pull you in until the very end. Well done, Cindy!
