Love Will Keep Us Together by Anne Dayton & May Vanderbilt

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Love Will Keep Us Together

(FaithWords - April 30, 2010)


Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt


ANNE DAYTON graduated from Princeton University and is earning her master's degree in English literature at New York University. She works for a New York publishing company and lives in Brooklyn.

MAY VANDERBILT graduated from Baylor University and went on to earn a master's degree in fiction from Johns Hopkins University. She lives in San Francisco, where she writes about food, fashion, and nightlife in the Bay Area.

Together, the two women are the authors of Miracle Girls series.


Riley McGee has the whole world open before her. She could get into any college, major in any subject, become whoever she wants to be...But the truth is, Riley has no earthly idea what to do. She's paralyzed by indecision, afraid of the changes she faces, and as graduation day inches closer, it feels more and more like a threat.

Meanwhile, her autistic brother, Michael, is struggling to fit in at Marina Vista and stay on top of his classes. Riley tries to keep an eye out for him, but when Ms. Moore suggests pulling Michael out of school, Riley has to fight for her brother--and against her favorite teacher. And things take another turn when her ex-boyfriend, Tom, arrives, hoping to give their relationship one more try. On top of that, an ambitious new pastor makes her question everything she thought she knew about faith.

My thoughts:

I have read all of the Miracle Girl books and can say that I have enjoyed reliving a bit of my past by traipsing through the halls of Marina Vista High along with this group of characters. Each girl has a special place in my heart and I am sad to see this series end. Anne and May make such a great team at creating the voices of young adults and I would love to see them put out more YA books in the future.
