Book: Cabs, Camera, and Catastrophes by Wendy Lee Nentwig, Bethany House Publishers, 2000
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 14-17
Subjects: Dating relationships, divorce, friendships
Summary: Cooper just can’t find peace. First she dumps Josh because he’s expecting too much of her time and energy, and now she’s frustrated because he went the opposite direction and won’t spend any time with her. She just wanted a balance… or does she just need to be in control of everything? She has doubts about herself, about Josh, about a lot of things right now. Something weird is going on with Claire too. She’s not acting like herself these days but isn’t confiding in Cooper about it either.
Notes: Cooper tries to do what she thinks is right but it just never seems to work out the way she thought it would. As far as she can see, all her efforts to do what’s right just made more of a mess of things. But at the end, when she gets to see the results of one of her choices making a difference in someone’s life, she realizes that God can work everything out for His plans no matter how much of a mess she makes of things. The major focus of the book is on the dating relationships (or lack thereof), rather than on the spiritual, but the spiritual elements are definitely there. This is the 4th and as far as I can tell, final book in the Unmistakably Cooper Ellis series.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works together for the good of those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose.
