Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker

Small Town Sinners is a very faith-based book. The main character is Lacey, who's dream has always been to be the  Abortion Girl for her church's Hell House. Then she meets Ty Davis who used to live in Stile Water with Lacey but, he moved away. Now he is back and Lacey is falling for him. Ty starts asking Lacey questions that make Lacey think about her own faith. And Lacey's father, one of the church's Pastors, is not okay with Lacey hanging out with Ty anymore. Lacey has always listened to her father but now she feels he is making the wrong choice by not letting Lacey be with any of her friends. She thinks she is no longer in the line with God and needs her friends (Starla Joy - Lacey's best friend, Dean - Lacey's best friend who she thinks might be gay, and Ty - Lacey's new boyfriend) help finding her path again.
Small Town Sinners should only be read if you don't mind very strong Christian morals and beliefs. It quotes the Bible a lot. I liked the book because it had a strong lesson that if you have your friends and an open mind you can go through anything together. This book over all was very moving and I have recommend it to all of my Christian friends, and they love it! My only suggestion would be to make the boy characters more manly. I did fall in love with all of the people in the book. Some of the questions that Lacey and her friends are put up against are the very same questions I ask myself. I have found this book very well written and would recommend it to any Christian.
