2019 Roe Green Award Reading

Christina

an irreverent passion

by Alexis Scheer

Christina Alvarez is the charismatic leader of the Hillsong Prep Girls’ Choir, a college-bound honors student, and an all-around Good Girl. While her choir-mates revel and raise hell on an overnight trip, an unexpected kiss rocks her to the core and opens her eyes to a society that has betrayed her. Christina is a joyous yet cheeky coming-of-age story about the vulgarity of girlhood in a society where "teenage girl" is an insult.
