My boyfriend used to think it was cute, a girl named Mister. Used to think I was cute. Used to be my boyfriend what feels like a million years ago. Then again, I used to be a good Christian girl, the kind who would never, well… Just goes to show how little people know. Even I was surprised by me. Now, I close my eyes hoping to see exactly where I went wrong. Mary Rudine, called Mister by almost everyone, has attended church and sung in the choir for as long as she can remember. But then she meets Trey. His long lashes and smooth words make her question what she knows is right, and one mistake leaves her hiding a growing secret. Another Mary is preparing for her upcoming wedding and has done everything according to Jewish law. So when an angel appears one night and tells her that she—a virgin—will give birth, Mary can’t help but feel confused, and soon finds herself struggling with the greatest blessing the world will ever know. Feeling abandoned, Mister is drawn to Mary’s story, and together both young women discover the depth of God’s love and the mysteries of his divine plan.

Review by Liyah
Overall Rating
HI my name is Liyah, and I just wanna tell you about your book.... I LOVED IT, its absolutely amazing, i love how Mister's personality is in the story, and how she reads the book Mary Mary, to help her through her pregnancy, and the criticism she'll get from people at her church, because she made a sin, when she lost her virginity before marriage. Ms. Grimes... at the ending where it ends with "yes yes" I'm confused and, i want the book to continue, the book is so wonderful, REALLY.. but i just ask if you could make a book2 of A Girl Named Mister... i don't mean to bug you or make you feel a way.. but i just ask of your blessing to make a book 2 of that book, and continue from there?... Your an amazing author keep doing what your doing. (Posted on 10/2/2015)
