Meet, Catie Conrad - a typical Christian tween with oh, the weight of the world on her shoulders. And if it isn’t bad enough that no one seems to understand the social pressures of being the greatest at everything, donning the latest fashions, and carrying the trendiest technology, Catie’s dad is about to uproot her and her family to work at an Indian reservation during Spring Break. Throw in a school dance, a major art contest, and her arch nemesis, there’s bound to be an epic meltdown of biblical proportions. Finally a voice in the tween genre that is relatable and no less humorous, this new series encourages kids to remember that regardless of the situation, God is always there to lift them up.

Luckily things get put into perspective as Catie Conrad finds that with faith in God, ALL things are possible.
