Senior year is well underway at Spencer Academy. Lissa Mansfield and her friends (Gillian, Carly, Shani and Mac) are ready to graduate and begin college. However, final term will not be free of teen angst and drama.

Topping the list is a secret that Vanessa Talbot, Lissa's enemy since freshman year, is keeping. It could alter her life forever. Lissa's friends are shocked when she tries to befriend Vanessa. Can Lissa make her friends understand that she is following God's directive to 'love the sinner, not the sin?' Meanwhile, Lissa and her friends are faced with the challenges of choosing a college, preparing for the Senior Cotillion, boyfriends and graduation. This close-knit group of friends has come a long way. Can their relationships withstand the trials and tribulations of senior year?

Adina is a literary master in her field. She has a strong grasp on topics relevant to young adults. It is apparent that she values a relationship with God and makes that clear in her books (ex: Lissa and her friends look to God's leading when making important life decisions). While some secondary characters are not given as much visibility as in prior books, the reader will quickly connect with the storyline. Though this is listed as being the final book in the All About Us series, the ending does leave open the possibility of more.
