Back cover (from Goodreads):
Annie has it all. She's attractive, graduated with honors, was accepted at the college of her choice, has supportive parents, good friends, and a steady boyfriend who loves her. One night when an unexpected visitor appears, Annie's safe world is destroyed. As she tries to recover the pieces of her broken life, a war ensues between two brothers who both claim to have her best interests at heart. But who will Annie choose? Or will she decide to turn her life in a different direction?
Michelle Sutton is known as the Edgy Inspirational Author and BOY! is that not more true, then in It's Not About Me. Before, I hadn't read anything by Michelle, but now I am a full fledged Sutton fan! It's Not About Me is the story of Annie a teenage girl going through life pleasing everybody and trying not to cause any ripples. On one tragic night, Annie and everything she's ever known, is turned upside down. Now, while trying to piece things back together, Annie makes some life changing decisions. But, not everyone is happy about them.
I LOVED It's Not About, because Michelle addresses the issues that many Christians today don't dare talk about. But, in today's society things like: pornography, (pre-marital) sex, and excessive drinking , are shoved in are faces and thought to be "okay" and "acceptable". Michelle not only brings these thing to center stage but, presents strong, biblical truths to counter them. And, ahhh the romance......*sigh*. Dan is what every girls wants but, he only has eyes for Annie. So sweet (and at times, pretty steamy). It's Not About Me is gripping, (in every sense of the word) romantic, and faith shacking. And though INAM is geared more towards the YA group, I feel that anyone, of any age, would love it. This book is definitely on my "keeper" self! Can't wait to read Michelle's next book, It's Not About Him!LOL;)
