Has anyone read Letters to St. Lydia by Melinda Johnson? I heard it was good for teens and young adults (like me). Here's the story:

Quote
Lydia’s life is turning upside down, and soon she’ll be facing all the trials and temptations encountered by every young adult who’s on her own for the first time. Lydia needs a friend badly—and she finds one in the most unexpected place: an icon of St. Lydia. Young Lydia pours out her troubles in letters to St. Lydia, who (invisibly to Lydia) answers, guiding her through her time of troubles with deep love and compassion.

God be merciful to us sinners.

the best way of conveying God's love to people is through your own presence and deeds.
No longer posting on this forum. Thanks to all the helpful people who inspired me. God bless.

Yes.  The book is great and good and fast read.

There is a blog series beginning that I just heard about on AFR.
