Choices by Katrina L. Burchett is a story that deals with matters of the heart, different facts of life and the hard things to discuss. This book, of realistic fiction, follows the paths of five different girls throughout their latter teenage years. Shauntice, Angel, LaKeeta, Bridgett and Hope all wish that at least one thing in their life was different. In the course of a few weeks, all of these girls grow and change to become more responsible and aware. Some of the hardest choices that they will have to deal with occur during these weeks and the girls are presented with decisions that will affect their lives forever.

This book started out a bit slow but as I read on, I got more intrigued by this way of living. It deals with how Christianity can affect your life for the better. I learned how to respect the life that I live more because of reading this book and seeing different realities of diverse people. This book is an emotional read and draws the reader into the story more than the other realistic fiction books that I have read. I would definitely suggest this book but some topics discussed in it are a bit mature.
Rating (0 - 10 scale): 7
