Moody Publishing The Encore - eBook

Beka's senior year is in full swing when she finds herself at the center of a controversy that threatens to get a popular teacher fired. Of course, Mai is probably behind it all. She's still determined to make Beka's life miserable. But Beka has bigger problems than Mai. Her sister is acting aloof, her dad seems really worries about something at work, Gabby is going to be her stepmom. And Beka is still thinking about Josh. He's away at college, but says he wants to get to know her better. What does that really mean?

Thank goodness for Mark. He always seems to be around with a shoulder to cry on. Then again, he's also always leaning in for a kiss. Could she really have a future with him? And what does the future hold anyway? College seems likely until a whirlwind trip to LA opens the door to a whole new world of opportunity in the music industry. Nothing is easy or simple in Beka's world. But one thing's for sure. As she tries to pick out melodies--on her guitar and her life--she also wants to keep her ears open to what God has to say.

The mailman brought my copy of The Encore, and I couldnt wait to dive in! What happens in the fifth and final episode of Becoming Beka? Eighteen year old Beka is torn between two loves; someone targets her for revenge; family dynamics heat up; and an unexpected twist catches Beka and the reader by surprise. Author Sarah Sumpolec doesnt tie up Bekas life in a neat package, but a strong message of God's hope lingers. Beka can't wait to see God's plan unfold, and I can't either. I hope thats why the author kept the door cracked for future possibilties. Maybe we wont have to say goodbye after all!

I read all of The Encore in one day. I just couldn't put it down! This is the first book I have read in the Becoming Beka series, and it made me want to go back and read all of the rest. The Encore is both encouraging and entertaining. It is a must read for any girl who is fighting her way through all of the drama of high school life.

The Encore is just that, a great ending to a superbly written series for teen girls. As a teacher and aunt, I've recommended and purchased this series for many teens struggling with the same issues Beka faces. Sumpolec does a terrific job with character development, allowing the reader to feel the pain Beka experiences. In The Encore, Beka knows in her heart she needs to decide about her relationships with two boys. The only downfall of this book would be that Sumpolec may have drawn out this decision and Beka's relationship with one of the boys a bit too long. However, the character development, tone, and pacing carry the reader for the most part.The problems Beka faces in this book are "real life" for Christian teens who desire to "fit in" to the world around them. Without being preachy, Sumpolec expresses her message of trusting God in terms teens will relate to.It was a fun ride to be part of Beka's life throughout this series. I look forward to seeing what Sumpolec writes next, knowing with confidence it will be something well written.
