“A fun book with a good message”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lois Hjelmstad
Review for The Perfect Blindside by Leslea Wahl
Through a deft use of dialogue and authentic teen-speak, the author has written an interesting, contemporary twist on boy-meets-girl, adventure ensues, boy-gets-girl. The story is a page-turner, easily followed, and delivers several strong moral messages. The characters are well-developed and we are pulling for them, both in unraveling the mystery and in their love story. The title theme carries throughout and is happily resolved.

About the Author
Welcome! I’m Leslea Wahl, author of The Perfect Blindside. For as long as I can remember I have been a creator of stories with ideas swirling through my head. I am thrilled now to be able to share some of them with others. For many years I have been driven by a belief that our purpose in life is to use our gifts to glorify God and lead others to Him. I am blessed to have found a way to intertwine my two passions by creating adventurous stories with positive Christian messages for today’s youth. Not only do I hope to entertain with my writing, but also to inspire others to find their gifts as well. The Perfect Blindside was recently awarded an Illumination Book Award silver medal.
