Learning by Karen Kingsbury* A Review

Learning (Bailey Flanigan Series Book 2)

Bailey Flanigan is growing closer to her dream to be an actress and dancer in New York while Cody coaches a small high school football team ... on and off the field. But neither feels complete without the chance to share their dreams with one other. Can distance truly make the heart grow fonder? Or will Cody learn to turn to others to share in his happiness? And when tragedy strikes? Who will be there to provide comfort in the face of loss? As Cody's past catches up with him, he must learn to reach out for help or risk withdrawing permanently inside himself. Both Bailey and Cody find themselves learning significant life lessons in this poignant love story, featuring members from Karen Kingsbury's popular Baxter family.

In Learning Bailey and Cody are still denying their feelings for each other. Bailey is leaning that life isn’t always easy. When God gives us a chance to share our faith of pray for someone we need to do it immediately. We may never be given another chance. Things on Broadway aren’t going great. There is talk among her cast mates that Bailey only got he part because of her role in the movie with Brandon Paul.
Bailey won’t call/text Cody because she feels he needs to make the next move.
Cody is taking his losing high school football team to camp and teaching them how to care for each other. He wants them to grow close to God.
Both Bailey and Cody are growing closer to Brandon and Cheyenne, but will they forget the love they had for each other?
The other part of Learning Landon and Ashley as they find out about Landon’s lungs. Will he have a fatal disease and if so what will he do for his life work? Landon has only known and loved firefighting.
I feel this is the best part of the book, Ashley and Landon’s story.
I don’t care much for Bailey and Cody right now as they are making dumb mistakes and choices, but that is how we all learn. I love Karen Kingsbury books and recommend this one.
