Upcoming Release: Saving Maddie

Saving Maddie
By: Varian Johnson

Pub date: March 9th, 2010

Joshua Wynn is a preacher’s son and a “good boy” who always does the right thing. Until Maddie comes back to town.

Maddie is the daughter of the former associate pastor of Joshua’s church, and his childhood crush. Now Maddie is all grown up, gorgeous—and troubled.

She wears provocative clothes to church, cusses, drinks, and fools around with older men. Joshua’s ears burn just listening to the things she did to get kicked out of boarding school, and her own home.

As time goes on, Josh goes against his parents and his own better instincts to keep Maddie from completely capsizing. Along the way, he begins to question his own rigid understanding of God and whether, as his mother says, a girl like Maddie is beyond redemption. Maddie leads Josh further astray than any girl ever has . . . but is there a way to reconcile his love for her and his love for his life in the church?

summary from goodreads.com

This book sounds so good! I'm assuming that it's going to be from Josh's point of view which I'm excited about because I really enjoy reading from a male perspective. I also like that the roles are reversed. Usually you have the bad-boy and the good-girl but in this case, the roles are completely switched. It should be interesting to see how that's utilized. I'm really excited about this book.


  1. droooool I <3 Varian Johnson And I think it'll be from Josh's and Maddie's POV

  2. OOH yes!!! I can't wait for this one!! :-D
    I too love reading from a males perspective, and I don't mean to make a generilization, but the books are usually funnier. I love the whole idea of this one.

  3. This one sounds great. I can't wait to read it.

  4. This does sound really good. I love reading books were young people's faith is challenged and they have to take a second look on what they think is right and wrong. I can't wait to read this.

  5. I like the idea of the roles being reversed too. I'm always looking for a great male character!! Sounds like a good read.
