The Secret Journal of Brett Colton

"Kathy Colton can't stand her brother Brett.  Her family talks as if he were perfect!  All Kathy knows for sure is that Brett is dead.  He died of leukemia when he was seventeen and she was only two.  But when Kathy turns sixteen, she discovers her brother's hidden journal-a journal written especially for her-and learns about the brother she never know.  At the same time, Kathy is mortified by an assignment to tutor the popular high school quarterback Jason West, a football jock who, even worse, is a Mormon."
          I thought that this book was the perfect girl power book.  It talks a lot about the lessons learned about faith, acceptance, forgiveness, and understanding.  It made me cry...a still has a happy ending though
