Christian teen fiction. Caitlyn Summer, soon to be fifteen, must practice old-fashioned courtship with high parental involvement, but she has a terrible crush on shy Roland West and she has competition from a girl with no restrictions. As Caitlyn struggles to remain faithful to God, her parents, and herself, her best friend gets pregnant and might get an abortion. When Caitlyn discovers her mother's past mistakes, she begins to resent all the guidelines her parents expect her to follow.  The characters in Life-Changing Love face the questions: Who am I? Where am I headed? How am I going to get there?

well-crafted connections and a poetic atmosphere

Life-Changing Love is a poignant tale about the beauty of life and the importance of being yourself. It was well-written and compelling, inspiring me to finish it within a few days.

The writing was filled with lovely imagery that allowed me to not only visualize the scene, but go beyond it. That is to say, it had this poetic quality that moved beyond the 'common' world in which we live to a description of a more transcendent nature. As a result, it could be argued that it connected to one of the main themes of the novel: Life is beautiful.

Theresa Linden is both a gifted storyteller and an excellent writer. The development of her story, from well-crafted connections and a poetic atmosphere to the journeys of the characters within, defined the book as both literary and lyrical. I enjoyed her characters---from relatable main characters such as Caitlyn to supporting roles such as the difficult, but ultimately loving, Peter---and look forward to seeing where the story takes them next. I hope that Ms. Linden is writing a sequel to this book because I would love to read it!
