A poor excuse for Christian fiction

A terribly disappointing story. This book claims to be "Religious", "Christian fiction", "Inspirational." It is none of those. While the writing itself is decent, the story felt like Christianity was an after thought, something included to get particular people to read it. In theory, the book is about trying to make a tabloid a place for inspiration for a good life, but the truth is the novel glamorizes what it claims to condemn. In fact, the story would probably be more compelling outside of the Christian genre, because then the poor choices made fit into the worldview instead of knowingly making bad choices -  and receiving good as a consequence. Because of these glaring inconsistencies I cannot recommend this book.
