When you know a secret that could put you in the spotlight do you tell it?

#1 - Asking for Trouble by Sandra Bryd, Tyndale House Publishers, 2010
Asking for Trouble (London Confidential)
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 13-19
Subject: Secrets, popularity, friendships
Summary: Savvy is an all American girl - trapped in London. Her family has decided to move to a new country where no one in her new school wants to be friends - or give her a chance at the school newspaper! Savvy knows she has alot to offer, but it seems no one wants to give her the chance to prove it.
Notes: This is the first book in a new series - London Confidential. In this book Savvy has to make a choice about the price of popularity. She has multiple chances to force her way to the front by telling a secret, but the price may not be worth it. She has to decide when it is appropriate to share a secret and when it is appropriate to keep it. One person points out to her that doing something good in secret does not mean you are not rewarded, it means that God, who sees what is done in secret will do the rewarding and praising rather than people.
Recommendation Scale: 4
