AbstractHistoryArchive Description

' At seventeen, Skye is just beginning to have problems. Her old friend Marco seems lost between his faith and his newfound love for Judith, whose family belongs to a religious sect in town. And Skye ends up playing the part of Peter in her school rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar, when she had her heart set on the role of Mary Magdalen. From the first day she meets Judith, Skye learns a lot about friendship and betrayal.'
