BOOK REVIEW FOR TYNDALE PUBLISHERS

      Don’t Kiss Him Good-Bye (London Confidential)
       Sandra Byrd
       Tyndale House Publishers, 2010
      
       This is a great book about how difficult it is for a teen to 
       move to another country and start high school there. In 
       this story, Savannah Smith moves from United States to 
       London, England. She has to face all of the cultural 
       differences and has a difficult time adapting at first.
      
       As she is still struggling to fit into her High School, she is
       assigned to write an advise column in the school paper. 
       Although she enjoys her assignment, and proves herself  
       to be a true journalist using a pen name, the girl who used
       to write for the paper returns and wants to take her old job.
      
       When she is faced with the dilemma of attending the May Day
       Dance and not having anyone to go with, she feels that it isn’t
       likely that she will find anyone to take her to the dance. But when
       a handsome boy asks her to the dance, she jumps at the invitation
       but wonders if he has secondary motives.
      
       This is the third novel in the London Confidential series. It is a
       great book about adolescence and how girls and boys interact with
       one another at that age. It is a book that will have the reader
       turning the pages quickly and reading the book quickly in order to
       find out what happens next.
      
       It was truly a pleasure to read this book because it was written
       with such poise and grace.  I  received this book compliments of
       Tyndale House Publishers.  

       Rating:  4 stars
