Shes pretty sure Jesus loves her. But shes angry. Angry with her father for leaving, her mother for never going anywhere, and her dysfunctional siblings -- just because theyre around.

And though she knows the Bible says the meek are blessed, Faith cant help but covet beautiful things and try to obtain them in any way possible. So Faith lies, cheats, and steals. In fact, she breaks almost every one of the Commandments, mostly by accident. At the same time, she grapples with the girl she thinks she should be, the family shes supposed to be a part of, and the imaginary life she may never live.In Tempting Faith DiNapoli, Faith does more than grow from innocent eight to headstrong eighteen. Faith struggles with her new bad habits, fends off bad boys who want more than she should give, and contemplates a future that looks worse than her mothers past and present.The DiNapolis are mismatched, broke, and dysfunctional, but they fight with and love one another with equal parts ferocity and devotion, laughter and tears.

All the while, Faith prays for a happy ending. Or at least for something not too, too bad.One part Beverly Donofrio, one part Frank McCourt, Tempting Faith DiNapoli is a charming, fresh, bighearted debut.
