Her obsession with Derek is pushing Serenity to the breaking point, so she does what anyone would do - she sets up a date with another boy. Eddie is the lucky (?) guy, but he's struggling with the same issues, and not always winning the war. Can all their expectations for their night out be unrealized and yet be a success? Even though she's still confused about many things, her friends are still accommodating to her journey of faith...which just might come to an end after she tells them all about the depth of her confusion!
The movie (actually the second half of the book) is a biblical epic called 'Esther, Queen of Persia', with Serenity in the feature role. Based loosely on the first half of the Old Testament story of Esther, recently deposed Queen Vashti (played by Kimberly) tries to end the reign of newly chosen Queen Esther. Can Esther stay true to her Jewish roots while living in the courts of a pagan king? Recommended for ages 14 and up.
