#1 - Chopstick by Sandra Byrd, Bethany House Publishers, 2005
Chopstick (Friend's for a Season)
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 14-20
Subject: Love for others, friendships, humility
Summary: Paige and Kate have the same dream - to win the singer-songwriter contest. Only one person can win though. The two girls each have reasons to win. Paige needs to be somebody in her family, needs to succeed at something. Kate needs to be able to buy Christmas presents for poor children without getting handouts from a snotty lady at Church. When a guitar sale brings them together, a friendship is born, a friendship tied to a competition they are both desperate to win.
Notes: Each girl has to learn what it means to truly show love, unselfish love to the other. They are challenged greatly in their journey together. The story of their learning about love leads them all the closer to the One who loves them the most.
