Becoming Bayley

 

Bayley Albrecht's dream is to play soccer on BYU’s South Field. When she is invited to Soccer Camp the summer before her senior year in high school, she knows she’s just one step closer to her dreams. Things get even better when she meets Matt Macauley, the star of the men’s soccer team. When they decide to write each other while Matt is on his mission, Bayley figures her life can’t get any better. But it certainly can get worse…

After she receives a minor concussion from playing soccer, Bayley discovers she has a disease called alopecia which causes her to lose her hair. As Bayley struggles to deal with the reality of her baldness she finds herself having to make some tough decisions. Can she still play soccer? Does she even want to? More importantly, should she tell Matt? And will he still want her when she does? Becoming Bayley is the story of one girl’s journey through self-discovery, of the definition of true love, and of the realization that as a daughter of God, she is of infinite worth.

"I LOVED this book! Bayley was such  an amazingly strong girl...I finished  this one yesterday, but I kind of still  feel like I'm in Bayley's world."

 -Cathy, from Fire and Ice

 

"Four out of five stars. Very  enjoyable read, and make sure a  kleenex is handy too.

 -LDS Women's Book Reviews

 

"Please, Lord, if you are listening  right now, I’m going to repeat my  oft-repeated prayer: Even though  it’s not great, this is the best hair I’ve  got. Please don’t take it away from  me. Amen."

 -Becca Wilhite,  Author

 

"An un-put-downable book..."

"It's been a long time since a book  has actually made me cry, made my  heart ache, then made me feel the  tingling butterflies of what it's like to  be so happy and in love..."

 -Goodreads reviewers

 

"Susan..is opinionated and loyal. She  is sassy and loving. She's a small-  town girl who has a very clear  understanding of human  nature...guess what her main  character is like?"

 -Melanie Jacobson, Author

 

"I can't say enough about how much  I loved the romantic element...It was  written in such a realistic and sweet  way that you couldn't help but feel  involved."

 -Holly J. Wood, Author

 

"I have probably read this book  about five times now. Really, I'm not  kidding. When I want to read  something good, I grab this book  and flip open to just about  anywhere and let myself get sucked  into the pages."

 -Tiffany Odekirk

ABOUT

I’ve always loved telling stories. My favorite is the one where I sent the wrong letter to the right boy. We were married the next summer. I attended LDS Business College where I earned an Associate’s in Computer Technology and Brigham Young University where I should have majored in English. I live on a lush farm in the heart of Virginia complete with rolling hills, two rivers, more trees than I care to count and a haunted house overlooking two cemeteries. When I’m not busy writing, I can be found chasing cows, fireflies, my four adorable children or my extremely hot husband.
