ABOUT THE BOOK:
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 new found 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.
This is the third book in the scenarios series.
Molly is your typical teenager in high school. She is with her friends (Sara and Jess) complaining about clothes and how they all look Junior high-ish. They girls decide that they should all get jobs since they are old enough to get work permits (if their parents sign the forms). They quickly work on a list of where they could work, they decide on a clothing store because not only would they get paid but they would get a discount.
With the okay to work the girls know just where they want to apply, Magna. They all get a call for an interview but only Molly gets hired.
Molly quickly realizes she has a knack for fashion and putting together great looks. This impresses Donna, the manager. Molly has the knack for thinking of the customers need but yet has the knack for adding on to the sale. This is a great quality management likes and can bring you up in a job.
Being in a higher position brings on additional responsibility and friends she didn’t know she had such as the popular girls in the school when they realize where she works. When her friends and her so called friends ask for favors, will Molly help them out or will she say no?
Molly is your typical teenager she wants the friends, to fit in and to have it all but with that there comes a price, will this cost her everything?
I really enjoyed this book. Funny enough I was thinking as a teen and knew shew would make the wrong choice but happy that she came clean in the end. I am sure most teens wouldn’t. I think most teens don’t realize that there are consequences to your actions when you make the wrong choice.
I asked the neighborhood girls what they would do and the majority said they wouldn’t bow to the peer pressure and stand their ground because they said eventually you would get caught and the guilt would eat away at you. So I guess some teen girls would do the right thing.
