The second book in the Bailey Flanigan series looks further into Bailey and Cody’s lives as their paths go in different directions. There are some real gems of wisdom and depth in this novel, particularly surrounding Bailey’s involvement with her fellow cast members with regards to her Christian beliefs. This is a series that should be read in order.
As Bailey begins her time as an actor in the Broadway production of Hairspray, her former relationship with Cody Coleman is never far from her thoughts. Yet Cody has moved on — both as a coach of a high school football team and with his relationship with Cheyenne Williams, who is currently recovering from injuries from a car accident. But Cody still thinks about Bailey too. Will they find their way back together, or follow a new path? (ZONDERVAN, Jun., 352 pp., $14.99)
