This is an incredible advancement in Catholic fiction! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Catholic Reluctantly, and I can’t wait to read the rest in the series.
Catholic Reluctantly tells the humorous but inspiring tale of 15 year old Allie, who is sent to a tiny, dilapidated Catholic school called John Paul 2 High. She was threatened in a gun scare at her old school, so her mom decides it is best for her to try this new school. It tells Allie’s story of making new friendships, discovering her Christian identity, and her struggle with issues that every teen faces.
While keeping a realistic feel, the book covers tough issues such as hazing, pornography, purity, choosing the right friends, racism, and abusive relationships. It is not overly preachy, but includes lots of Catholic “innuendo”, which is quite humorous at points.
