"That dog is as dumb as dirt", I thought. Then I looked up. Why had I thought that?

Summary: Savvy’s social life seems to be improving a tiny bit. A guy at school is showing interest in her and a guy at youth group that she has liked for a while is showing interest in her. When she gets a chance to go to the May Day Ball she has a choice to make: go with the guy who asked her and improve her social standing or be an outcast once more and decide not to go. The problem is that the guy who asked her is starting to turn her into someone she doesn’t like. Meanwhile, her role on the newspaper staff has a chance to improve as well. A lot of choices are in her hands right now and she needs wisdom to make the right ones.
Notes: Savvy learns a bit about the influence friends can have in this book. She finds the verse about how bad company can corrupt good character and realizes that’s exactly what she has allowed to happen. When she finds herself wanting to be rude to others, she realizes her attitude has become corrupted by the company she has kept. There’s a reason God asks her to make wise choices about relationships. That’s the primary lesson of this book.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5

1 Corinthians 15:33 - Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
