 Book Description
 January 6, 2015
Christian fiction for Young Adults.

Waltham Academy series, Book 2. Book 1 is "Worth the Wait" by Laura Jackson.

Doesn't anyone feel she's worth their time?

Routinely ignored by her single mother, high school senior Lindsey Hamilton hides her loneliness behind a mask of flirtatious self-confidence that has many boys wrapped around her finger. However, during community service required for graduation, she meets a shy guy with a haunted past who barely gives her the time of day. Why doesn't he like her?

Then the father she thought had abandoned her before birth wants to meet, and she discovers everything she believed about him is a lie.

How will Lindsey learn to trust so she can realize that she has been loved all along? 

Author Info:

I love books---reading and writing them. As an elementary school librarian, I get to spend most of my day sharing great books with kids. After work, I write my own stories to share.

When I'm not surrounded by words, I love watching sports. I'm a huge Rockets fan, and I love the Texans. 

I'm passionate about Jesus, books, trees, and cupcakes. 

I love to hear from readers, so please find me on Facebook, Twitter (LauraJackson80), Goodreads, or on authorlaurajackson.blogspot.com.

My Review: 
I really liked "Worth The Time" by Laura Jackson. I read book 1"Worth The Wait" and so I really wanted to read this one, the 2nd in the "Waltham Academy series"and I liked it better than the first one. This story is Lindsey's story, a character in "Worth the Wait. 

This story tells why Lindsey did the things she did in "Worth The Wait. This book is in the genre Young Adult and it is Christian Fiction but teaches life lessons well and is missing the things I disliked in book 1, here is the link if interested http://debbieloseanything.blogspot.com/2014/12/worth-wait-waltham-academy-book-1-by.html

This book can be a stand alone but I am glad I read book 1 before reading this book as it start up where book 1 ended.

I would recommend this book to teens and adults alike. 

This book deals with many teen issues, like rejection, blended families, inattentive single parent, and being ridiculed in front of your friends, and handles the issues very well, no graphic details.

Lindsey's learns to forgive her self and learns that she is worthy.

This is a really good clean love story! 

This book was really "Worth The Time" I spent reading it and I am hoping there is a third!
I  know how I want the third book to go if there is one!  But I guess that remains to be seen! 

"Worth The Time is getting 5 stars!

I received a complimentary copy of this book  from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
