The Bailey Flanigan series begins with Bailey leaving Bloomington for the adventure of a lifetime. She has won an audition for the ensemble of a Broadway musical in New York City. She's determined to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but is she really ready to leave family and friends for the loneliness of the city? And what of Cody? His disappearance has her worried about their future and praying that their love can survive.
In order to be closer to his mother in jail, Cody takes a coaching job in a small community outside Indianapolis. New friends, distance, and circumstances expose cracks in his relationship with Bailey Flanigan. Love, loneliness, big opportunities, and even bigger decisions highlight the first book in the new Bailey Flanigan series that features members of the popular Baxter family and finally completes the Bailey Flanigan/Cody Coleman story.

"Not for Me!"
It was just too simple. I think it was meant for a young adult.
The narrator was fine -- it just wasn't for me.
Like I said, probably a good story for someone much younger than me.
I do like Karen Kingsbury -- I have read a lot of her books/series and have enjoyed most of them. This is the first one that I actually didn't finish.
Like all of Karen's books can't put down or turn off... And the long wait till the next one comes out. Although Unlocked is a awesome way to wait.
I normally do not make snap decisions, however I am getting tired of Christian fiction being advertised.
On occasion I have really enjoyed it but do not advertise as one thing and be another.
"BORING !! Struggling to finish ."
Add more spice to the story , remove the Baxter family
The seductive poison
Narrator is ok so far
Baxter family , specially the little kid , forgot his name
"For adolescent reading."
It was like reading the diary of a junior high or highschooler, trying to figure out her adolescent years. Way too emotional in her dilemmas, even though it presents biblical values in decision making. "Overworked", as described by another reviewer. Not for me either.
I enjoyed the "Tuesday morning" series. I won't finish this book or the series.
One of the narrators had a very annoying and childlike voice and intonation - usually speaking for Bailey. This probably added to me impatience with the story line.
Ashley's story line was much more interesting and I don't know how it turns out unless I finish the book. It would be easy to recommend this to my junior high niece.
This could've been a sweet story but the internal dialogues are so over-worked, over-done, too long! I wanted to like it but I just didn't and wanted the characters to just make a choice!
"Summary does not say this is Christian literature"
The summary gave no hint that this story focuses on people's relationship with the Christian God. If I had known, I would not have bought it.
"This is a religious book. It is sappy."
Born again Christians.
No one else
I couldn't even finish it.
it had a lot of stars and good reviews. i was looking forward to reading it.
This first part of Bailey is so thought provoking and very emotional. I felt like I was in everysingal thoughts
