Have a Little Faith in Me

Have a Little Faith in Me by Sonia Hartl was a charming read that explored the inner self of teenage girl, CeCe. Hartl created a spunky, yet vulnerable character through CeCe with sharp wit and a vulnerable heart who is coming to terms with entering a new stage in her life. CeCe's adventures with her fellow Cabin 8 girls at Camp ThreeSixteen were hilarious and tender as they touched on key feminist points such as consent.

As a teenager, I would have loved to have had the chance to read a brave book like Have a Little Faith in Me because of all the excellent awareness and topics Hartl covers.

Favorite Quotes

"How do I look?" "Like you just had your heart broken." I rearranged my features. "How about now?" "Like you're going to make whoever did it pay."

" matter how far apart life took them, they would always be the girls from cabin eight."

"If I could learn how to swim in an ocean I'd created, I could learn how to bounce along and let the waves take me where I needed to go."

"Saved!" meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy that takes a meaningful look at consent and what it means to give it.

When CeCe’s born-again ex-boyfriend dumps her after they have sex, she follows him to Jesus camp in order to win him back. Problem: She knows nothing about Jesus. But her best friend Paul does. He accompanies CeCe to camp, and the plan—God’s or CeCe’s—goes immediately awry when her ex shows up with a new girlfriend, a True Believer at that.

Scrambling to save face, CeCe ropes Paul into faking a relationship. But as deceptions stack up, she questions whether her ex is really the nice guy he seemed. And what about her strange new feelings for Paul—is this love, lust, or an illusion born of heartbreak? To figure it out, she’ll have to confront the reasons she chased her ex to camp in the first place, including the truth about the night she lost her virginity.
