A Work in Progress Staci Stallings Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Rebecca Avery has never been one of “them”—the popular kids, the beautiful people. With less than fashion-plate looks and an off-beat, quirky style to living life, she has been relegated to finding “alone” activities to fill her time throughout high school. Unfortunately, college hasn’t changed that. Then she meets Eric Barnett, a nice guy who seems a little quirky himself. The only problem is, he’s in love with her roommate—one of the truly beautiful people. When Rebecca finds herself falling for him, she must find a way to break out of her shell or risk losing him forever. Who will win out in this mixed up jumble of feelings and loyalties?
Eric Barnett is drifting through college. Unlike his friends, he doesn’t have a path to relentlessly pursue. In fact, he often feels like the tag-along in a life that’s unfolding without him. Then he meets Rebecca Avery’s roommate who seems like she will finally give him what he most wants—credibility with his friends. However, when the roommate proves to be less-than-into-him, can Eric see past the outward appearance to find love with Rebecca?

User reviews about this book
By Nsean Richards
It was a decent book overall. I struggled a lot in the beginning about whether or not I wanted to continue reading. It just didn’t feel like there was enough to hold me. Eventually, it got better but even then.. it was just okay.
There was some good spiritual knowledge in the book and even that was introduced very suddenly. However, I do believe God spoke to me while
reading and I enjoyed the characters. I really wanted to like the book but it just turned out okay.
I didn’t expect..

This was a really nice story. Touches the heart strings.
Makes you think about your life and what's missing. My walk with our Heavenly Father. This was my 1st book by her and I am getting the next one.
Work In Progress
Intriguing. I thought at first it went over top with religion. The truth there's everything to be learned along with the characters and ourself. A truly enthralling believable romance. Such hopeful and peaceful ending. I know now where to find and see the smoke.
Well-woven story, but one point of bad theology
Very realistic characters and interactions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. --but I strongly disagree with something one of the characters says, that the God of the Old Testament is a God of judgement and not of love. Check out Psalm 136, which repeats 'His love endures forever' 26 times! --and both of the love commands (Love God; Love your neighbor) are from the Old Testament! Also, there's plenty of judgment in the New Testament: Revelation for sure; and read through a Gospel again and note how many times Jesus scolds somebody!
