About the Book


While her classmates basked in senioritis, Tami McCandlish was trying to figure out how to survive one more day of school.


As an athlete, honor-roll student, club leader, and friend of many, Tami enjoyed school until gossip, rumors, and backstabbing created a swarm of noise she could no longer ignore. When she stood up to the mean girls who relentlessly targeted her, her relationships changed forever.


Misunderstood by many, friends abandoned her, and she lost her sense of belonging. Crushed by the rejection of her friends and community, Tami lost her sense of identity and doubted she could take one more day of life.


High school ended, but shame lingered. Throughout college and into adulthood, lies of the enemy infiltrated her thinking, compounded every relational disappointment, affected how she interacted with others and left her struggling to regain friendship.


Tami’s story teaches us we cannot always control how others treat us, but we can decide how to react. Hurtful words and actions do not define who we are. Our worth is in Jesus, who shows us how to forgive our enemies, love again, and move forward in friendship.
