I learned a lot about the history of bible translation and the specific political impetus behind the making of the King James Bible. Well-researched and well-written. Ultimately, though, the book was a little slim and unsatisfying. I'm not sure what was missing but when I finished the last page I thought "that's it?"

When Mena stands up for another student, she brings down the wrath of the conservative members of her church and her circle of friends. Her parents won't talk to her. Her former friends torment her. And she is banned from attending her church. Now, it's the first day of high school and she must stand up for herself. With the help of her science teacher, a cute lab partner, and a litter of puppies, Mena might be able to make it through her freshman year. Until her dedicated-to-the-facts science teacher begins a unit on evolution, and Mena finds herself at odds with her parents, her church, and her own confusion. The humorous tone and flawed heroine, Mena, make this a book that goes beyond a preachy treatise on the separation of church and state.

Not one of Christina Dodd's best. Had some good parts but probably would not reccomend as a must read.
