Sometimes digging deep frees you to bloom.
Sadie Tremont’s will to survive is killing her. Almost 18, she’s battled one mysterious illness after another. Tara-Lynn, her mom, insists she’s the only one with the ultimate cure. Sadie can’t depend on her dad to help when his only interest is underground caving. Her grandmother too easily counts on God to help, but Sadie has stopped waiting for miracles. Callie, a café owner and new friend, might help but can she be trusted?
Then there’s Sky, Sadie’s new boyfriend who offers a sliver of joy, peace, and self-respect. When he schemes that the only way for Sadie to be happy is to escape with him from her native West Virginia hills by killing Tara-Lynn, she’s trapped.
She can't partner with Sky to hurt the mom who has hurt her for years . . . or can she?
When tragedy strikes and threatens Sadie’s dad’s life and the shaky ground the Tremont family stands on, will they pull together or give in to the weakened earth beneath their feet?

Her Good Girl by Elaine Stock explores the gritty reality of life and the messiness of family and friendships. It explores a level of honesty, betrayal, heartache and most importantly forgiveness that we can only experience when God is in our midst.
Stock reminds us that we can be lost and searching while God waits for us. God is always present and showing us His love and care through praying family members ... even a stranger can unexpectedly show genuine concern and transform our lives.
Her Good Girl portrays the power of forgiveness ... not forgetting where we come from and the painful experiences we have been through, but seeing our strength in overcoming them with the anticipation of a brighter future.

This book was really confusing to me. It was a real challenge for me to continue reading to the end. It seemed broken up. I did get into it more in the last four chapters or so, but it was more about Sadie’s father that was interesting.
When the author, in the last chapter, showed how Sadie and her family could be a family now, even though they have many challenges ahead but they could get through it by putting God first.
