Book 1


They’re about to learn what true sisterhood is all about…

Here's a synopsis:

Between moving off-campus, learning to live with three roommates, and gearing up to pledge a sorority, Hayden Grant is about to become one very busy Beta. But in the midst of all the excitement, can she still put her faith first—and keep her ego out of the way?

College sophomore Hayden Grant has wanted to be a member of the Beta Gamma Pi sorority since fifth grade, when her own mother became a Beta. Now it’s Hayden’s turn, and she’s especially excited because her three roommates, Myra , Bridget, and Chandra, are going to pledge with her. At least that’s the plan—until they announce they’re each pledging a different sorority. Can Hayden and her girls hold onto their own sisterhood—and share an apartment—even as they pursue different organizations? And speaking of pursuit, Hayden’s caught the eye of Creed, a hottie she met her first year. There’s just one complication: Hayden’s ex-boyfriend heads the fraternity Creed’s pledging. It looks like it’s going to be one crazy year of trials, tribulations, and unexpected lessons—in leadership and love.

Book 1 Subject- Leadership

Hayden is a sophomore and she is the president of the college’s niece. Her mother is in this sorority and she longs to pledge. However, she is on a line that has many problems when old heads who have graduated come back to cause trouble. Many are suspended when a girl on the line gets dramatically ill. After Hayden’s line makes it, they vote her to be the sorority president. At first, she feels she is born to lead, but then tries to dictate and alienates much of the group. Her beau who is pledging himself and her close friends who pledge different sororities help her lose the ego and truly get it all together.
Book 2

The Way We Roll

Book 2 Subject-Sisterhood

This lady is the National Presidents daughter. She is not wanting to be a part of it though, but does because of her mom. A girl from Hayden’s line does not like her because this soror and the president’s daughter both like the same guy. This girl does pledge and her line becomes really close as she learns what joy sisterhood can bring when you care for someone else with your whole heart.

Rhonda, Veronica just told me to check out this article (thanks Veronica)! I see I now have a wonderful problem to figure out - which one of the great, new A.A., YA Christian fiction novels I'm going to read first.

Thanks for continuing to share info about urban Christian fiction in the YA category. I love reading Stephanie P. Moore's YA novels, and seeing how she's one of my Sorors, I'm sure I'm gonna love and relate to reading this new series.
