Riley, the most popular girl in school, has picked Ana as enemy #1, and Tyler, Ana's crush, doesn't even know Ana exists.
When Ana ends up in detention with Riley, her life suddenly changes. When Ana, Riley, Christine, and Zoe share their essays on "The Day My Life Changed," it turns out they have more in common than they ever would have imagined. Now as Ana lives out her faith, she and Zoe are determined to befriend Riley and Christine. But the drama of high school life has only just begun. . . .

My rating: 4 stars
|This was a great Christian book, maybe one of my favorites.|
Miracle Girls was a fun book to read because the characters were all unique and interesting to read about. There is Anna, with strict Christian parents who don't let her even talk to boys on the phone. There is Riley, a daredevil who doesn't get along with Anna...at all. There is Zoe, the dependable best friend with hippie parents. And there is Christine, the rebel.
All the girls are different from each other, which I liked. They weren't clones or anything, they each had their own personalities.
I liked reading about how they became friends, because it was a really great transition from absolute enemies to BFFs.
I would recommend this to Christian fiction lovers, girls in particular. It's the characters that make this book good!
