Karen Randall and Bev Henderson have been best friends since grade school. When the two girls head off to university at BYU--Idaho, their dreams of independence have finally come true. As they meet their new roommates, Meg, Jesse, Treena, and Kassidy, not only do they discover new friendships, but eventually a dark secret that threatens to shatter their relationships. Meg is a serious-minded nursing student, who systematically avoids her family as well as the young men who are interested in dating her. Jesse, tall and athletic, has a major chip on her shoulder from her parents' divorce. Easy-going Treena is strong in the Church, but worries constantly about her roommate, Kassidy, a beautiful young woman who is slowly destroying herself with a problem that she hides from everyone. Follow these young women through their humorous, touching, and adventurous journey where they learn to rely on the Lord and ultimately discover that even during trials, they are still watched over and protected in unexpected ways.
On the verge of her senior year, Laurie thinks she has her future all figured out. But while on vacation with her family in Mexico, she meets Ed, a seventeen-year-old Baptist from Illinois who is spending his vacation building houses for the homeless. Laurie returns to Utah determined to make a difference through her actions and weekly editorial in the student newspaper. Unfortunately, she finds her best friend, Roz, has also changed. Their strong-willed personalities collide as they stand on opposite sides of a heated battle involving popularity and Church standards. As Laurie writes impassioned pleas in the student newspaper for how things ought to be, she seems to further alienate herself from her peers, leaving her with only her new-found friend in Illinois. In the end, Laurie discovers how difficult and terrifying—and absolutely worthwhile—it is to truly stand for something.
