Molly Jacobs isn't sure what she should do: Should she follow through with stealing some clothes for her friends from Magna-the trendy girls' clothing store where she works? Or should she do what she knows is right, even if it means losing her newfound popularity? Girls ages 10 to 15 make the choice in this interactive story and see how the consequences change Molly's life. Includes a contract and prayer to remind the reader of the importance of making godly decisions.
Molly and her friends want to find a part time job to earn extra cash and a discount on great clothes. But Molly is the only one of her trio that gets hired at Manga, the coolest clothing store ever. At first everything is going great. Molly is really good at her job and quickly gets more responsibility. But some girls at school try to bully her into giving her special deals and then her best friends ask her to do something she knows is wrong. What will Molly do?You decide.Thats right. This is a Choose Your Own Scenario book, where you read all about Mollys life and then choose what she will do next. Then the book has two alternate endings, one for each choice Molly could make.What an awesome idea for a series of books! And the author handled this in such a wonderful way. Whether Molly chose to break the law or stand against her friends, she was still Molly. There were consequences to both choices, and some consequences were harder to live through than others, but this wasnt preachy. This was honest. So even in the ending where Molly chose to break the law, there was still redemption, and it was neat to read how she dealt with such humbling circumstances.So I highly recommend this series to all girls. Its a fun story to read for entertainment and a neat opportunity to see two sides of one choice.

Another great book by Nicole Odell. The lessons learned are valuable for young girls who are facing very difficult situations as well as the parent or person who might be involved in helping someone make the right decisions. I would recommend that young and "old" girls read the whole Scenarios series!
