Having grown up on their own show in Hollywood, Christian sister-and-brother actors Staci and Mike Whitaker have now married and raised their own families out of the limelight. Life away from Hollywood’s glamour has given them new perspectives on family and culture.
Fate reboots their old show and summons Staci, and Mike’s wife Celeste, to a fresh chance at entertaining modern families. After much discussion, they carefully accept. But when the show goes horribly awry, Staci, Celeste, and even Mike find themselves sorely tempted and even tricked into violating their most cherished ideals.
How will they find their way back, when all around them seems aimed towards darkness?
“Bobby’s Girls by John R.Price is a story about Christian actors and how compromising impact impact the Christian life. I really liked this story. It is a short read. I read it in one setting. This book has lots of Biblical Scriptures as part of the plot. I didn’t look them up but am going to later today. I really like that the characters apologize and really make a turn for the better.
This is a clean story but the television show that is the plot of this novel has alcohol usage and sexual tones and jokes.
I know this one fact is a minor issue, but the characters are already getting hit with rumors of not being actual Christians and the two husbands go to a bar( a sports bar) and one of them drinks a beer to discuss the problems. It just seems to me that they would not do anything to bring more condemnations on their family. I know this is a judgment call on my part.
This is the author’s first book and I will be on the look out for other books written by him.
I was given a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from John
I wrote the book as a Christian response to a well-known actor starring in a popular television show reboot. I thought the topic would be an interesting fictional exploration what actors and fans should consider when a TV show seems to compromise an actor’s values.
I chose the Dallas metroplex as the main setting because I have visited the area several times. As a child in the early 1980s, I remember watching two Dallas TV stations on cable TV.
