Jones has incredible insight into her teen characters. They are complex, yet have a lighter side and irresistible charm. The story is truly an outpouring to young people about healing deep wounds and gaining a voice for truth and hope.

Finley Sinclair is a talented musician who goes to Ireland as a foreign exchange student. She serendipitously meets teen heartthrob Beckett Rush and begins working with him on the hottest vampire flick yet. Her host family is wonderful, but they don’t totally understand the nature of the grief counseling sessions she attends in the wake of her brother’s death. Will she be able to find answers from God and pull her life together in time for her big audition? (THOMAS NELSON, Oct., 320 pp., $12.99)
