Growing up in a family of five as an energetic preteen, Carmen Browne is determined to live her life to please God. So far we followed Carmen as she began to face both major and minor life issues such as an unexpected family move, her big brother's search for his birth family, and the tragedy of domestic violence. As she learns to trust God to work all things out for good, Carmen learns a lot about herself, too: being popular doesn't guarantee you true friends, being honest up front saves a lot of hurt, and sometimes self-confidence is just bossiness in disguise. Now in this fifth and final volume of the popular series, Carmen begins to face the uncharted waters of adolescence. She discovers that her changing moods and growing body bring a brand new set of challenges to her life.
