Sophia has plenty of struggles to sort through and learns plenty about jumping to conclusions and running off on a whim to help her boyfriend Dane in Sophia's Dilemma: This Too Shall Pass (The Teen Mayhem Series). K.T. Bowes has extended the romance, mystery, and thrill of the Teen Mayhem Series in this excellent sequel. Having parted ways with her friends Maddie and Heather, Dane is the only person that Sophia has in her life and she intends to take good care of him. When his birth certificate is needed for a scholarship application, Sophia takes it upon herself to go retrieve it from his mother’s house, in spite of the fact that Dane has said that no scholarship was worth the trouble that might come about for him to retrieve the birth certificate. Dane was right. Her actions soon have Dane in the hospital, chained to his bed with a handcuff and facing the possibility of criminal charges for murdering his stepfather. With things in the dumps, everything seems to be crumbling around Sophia when she overhears some gossip that sends her entire life into a tailspin. Nothing seems real to her anymore as she pushes forward to clear Dane of the charges, while secretly knowing that it was over between them.

Sophia's Dilemma is expertly written in a way that draws every possible emotion from the reader. K.T. Bowes has done an excellent job of dragging the reader into the subjective feelings of the main character, while subtly showing that though everything looks bad from Sophia’s perspective, everything is, in fact, getting better. The thrilling suspense of an added mystery following the murder of Dane’s stepfather is an extra twist that injects even more intrigue into a story which is already spell-binding. Suspenseful, tragic and revealing, Sophia's Dilemma: This Too Shall Pass (The Teen Mayhem Series) will have you quietly whispering encouragement to the young heroine and repeating the words, “This too shall pass,” to her over and over again.
