Michelle Stansfields thoroughly conventional and middle of the road life has just been rocked. Michelle worked hard to have popular friends and avoid social ostracism, but when she is paired with Penny Volocek, the Jesus Freak, for a class project, her life is changed. Penny looks, sounds, and lives differently from everyone else. Why?
Additionally, Danny Caliburton crashed into Michelles and Pennys lives in a school confrontation. Danny was once an active member of church groups with Michelle, but now, he seems aloof and harsh. Is he just another critic or is there a deeper side to this tall, athletic wrestler?
Jesus Freak tells the story about how Michelle, Penny, and Danny navigate the contours of friendship, betrayal, and the complicated terrain of youth. They also discover the difference that claiming the title Jesus Freak as part of ones identity makes in growing up as friends and Christians.
