"I've always been able to be, to impersonate, people - professors, security guards, waitresses, just about anybody but myself."

Book: Love Rules by Dandi Daley Mackall, AreUthirsty, a division of Tyndale House Publishing, 2005
Love Rules
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls primarily, but also guys 15-21
Subjects: Identity in Christ, love, dating relationships
Summary: Mattie can be anyone but Mattie. She's amazingly smart, talented, beautiful, but insecure. When her best friend, Emma, asks her and Jake, Emma's brother who is going to the same college as Mattie to send postcards back home with rules about love on them, it causes Mattie to think about what love really is. What kind of love does God offer? What kind of love is she looking for from a guy? What are the rules of love?
Notes: This book is so much fun! Mattie's impersonations are great entertainment. But more than that is what she learns about God. She's a Christian, but sort of a baby one, one who just hasn't fully embraced God's love for her. Jake has grown up surrounded by Christian influence, but is unsure of taking the final leap for himself. What they learn about God's love is a valuable lesson all people need to get, especially those who are having a hard time believing in God's love for them.
Recommendation Scale: 5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

I want to read it! The concept of her impersonating others seems really cool.
