An Unexpected Role | Book Review


The devastation of a ruined summer.

The gift of a second chance.

Can Josie learn the lessons she needs in order to discover her true self?

After a humiliating event and overwhelming peer pressure, 16-year-old Josie flees her home to spend the summer with her aunt on a South Carolina island. Her fresh start turns into the summer of her dreams as friendships grow, romance blossoms, and a series of thefts surround her with excitement. However, when tragedy strikes someone close to her, Josie realizes there are more important things than her reputation. As she sets out to solve the mystery she has become entangled in, she not only realizes the importance of relying on her faith but along the way also discovers who God wants her to be.

Looking for a fresh start, Josie heads to South Carolina to spend the summer with her aunt. Of course, this fresh start is not without its challenges, as she navigates new friendships, romance, and mystery—plus some important life lessons through it all.

Josie’s story unfolds in An Unexpected Role, and it is a fun, summer-y YA story (perfect to read amidst the snowy weather). I enjoyed getting to know Josie, as well as the cast of characters surrounding her, and seeing her grow through her experiences. It is a good read for anyone in need of something quick and hopeful.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
