Series: Book #3 of the The Hidden Diary series. {Read Book #1s Review Here! and number twos Here! There are a total of 8 books in this series.}

Spiritual Content- Matthew 18:20 is on the back of the book (Just the reference, its not written out there but is written out at the end of the book.); Church going & Youth Group; Prayers; A Scripture is quoted.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a dumb; Some parents might object to They had promised each other theyd do something similara Diary Deedevery week by Friday, no matter what trouble or adventure they came across. (It says a couple of paragraphs before Not getting-arrested kind of trouble, but amazing-kind-of-adventure trouble.); Mentions of when Lucys parents were separated.

Sexual Content- Its mentioned that Lucy thinks Jake is uh, nice..
*Cover: Short skirts & shorts are worn. Lucy is smiling at (we assume) Jake while Serena is not.

New Teens- Four Stars (and a half)
Early High School Teens- Four Stars
Older High School Teens- Three Stars
My personal Rating- Three Stars

{ Lowered ratings for mentions of Lucys parents arguing & separated a few years prior. Depends on your Familys opinion on certain things.}

To compare the first three book in the Hidden Diary series, Just Between Friends would probably be my favorite one, by just a little bit. Manly because I loved the part when its mentioned that the Kingsley family is hoping to adopt from Chinawhich if youre been reading my blog for a while, youll know that thats a country near to my heart. :)
The Older High School Teens rating is lower because this whole series is fluffy, it's good if youre looking for a not-depth read.

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
