Amy Fellner Dominy, OYMG
I read this debut YA last year, after meeting the (friendly and funny!) author at a local writing conference, and just reread it. A Jewish girl goes to a debate camp located in a Christian school. There's prayer and Jesus ... but there's also a really cute boy named Devon and a scholarship at stake. The book traces Ellie's journey from being able to debate any side of a question to finding her true voice and figuring out what she really needs and wants to say. Charming, heart-felt, funny.
