Thomas Nelson Ruby Unscripted

Ruby Madden moves to an affluent town in Marin County, California, believing her dreams are coming true, but her hometown life is drawing her back. Her not-so-secret crush finally likes her. Her older brother decides to stay behind with their newly remarried father. And her best friend gets a boyfriend who's all wrong for her.

And Ruby's new life isn't as easy as she envisioned. Marin High School is a place for the rich and famous with their BMWs, chic clothes, and liberal beliefs-a place where she clearly doesn't belong. Even with her new job at the Underground Coffeehouse & Cinema, she is unsure of how to act and feels insecure about who she is. When she tries out for an amateur film group, the puzzle pieces finally begin to fit. And who is this mysterious guy who's messing with her heart

Ruby Unscripted by Cindy Martinusen-Coloma is the first in a hopeful series about 15-year old Ruby Madden who has moved from rural California to the big city of Marin where the high schoolers all look like they walked off of a movie set and she just may have finally found a place where she belongs. Ruby has spent much of her life daydreaming and thinking about art and travel which sets her apart from her high school friends who are far more focused on who is dating who. This big move could be the answer to her prayers, but living so far away from her father, big brother, and best friend leaves her vulnerable to the predations of high school bullies The author has created a real-life teenager in Ruby full of insecurities, overflowing emotions, and questions about the big picture in life. Ruby stumbles along the way, several times, but she comes across as a girl you'd love to be your daughter's best friend or son's new girlfriend. I hope Cindy writes more about sweet Ruby and her dreams of movies.

I enjoyed this teen Christian fiction novel. Ruby, the protagonist, tries to adjust to her new life. Her parents have divorced and married others. Ruby finds herself in a new locale, attending a new school and quite out of place. The tug she feels pulling her back toward "home" and friends she's known since kindergarten feel real.Her ever-present cell phone is an interesting character. The author uses it as a device to move the story along. The plot easily keeps the reader's attention. Most teen girls will like this one. Reading group guide included.
