When the new doctor’s family moves in across the street, Glen is happy to show the son, Charlie, around the small town. With his good looks, charisma, athletic ability, and sports car, Charlie soon has the whole town in his corner.

Except Nicole, the prettiest girl in town (and the pastor’s daughter), who has no intention of dating Charlie. No matter how often he asks her. Or Luke, Glen’s best friend since kindergarten, who dislikes Charlie on sight and longs to wipe that smile off his face!

As Glen sidesteps the hostility between Luke and Charlie and assists Charlie in his quest to date Nicole, he faces major problems—some life-threatening, others life-changing.

Editorial Reviews

"A fantastic series!... The authenticity of Glen's (main character) journey is impressive." -Herbie Kuhn, In-house Voice of the Toronto Raptors"The story grabbed me from the first paragraph and would, I think, do the same for most teens and 'teens at heart.'" -Fay S. Latka, ChristianWeek"Glen is clearly a character readers can relate to. And hopefully as we see value in him, we'll discover more value in ourselves." -Janet Sketchley, author of Heaven's Prey"We really appreciate this book because it appeals to teenage boys as well as girls." -Stonecroft Book Centre"Glen Sauten captured our sympathies as we rooted for him to stand up and discover himself." -Janet and Stephen Bly, authors of 100 + books
