Although she’s been a Christian for some time, sixteen-year-old Jessie Wells never really lived her faith, but that’s about to change. New minister Mr. Clyne has his eye on Jessie and he has great plans for her. His wise counsel sets Jessie on the right path and her faith blossoms. Jessie’s friends notice the change in her, and before long her parents notice, too. But there’s one person Jessie wants to influence for Christ more than anyone else; and if she can only find the right time to talk to him about salvation, Jessie’s certain, with God’s help, she can make a difference in his life.
