At the start of 7th grade, Elita Brown’s friends enjoy their seats at the popular lunchroom table. Meanwhile, Elita hides in the bathroom. This is not how she envisioned middle school. And her omission from the popular table is only the beginning of her problems. Will Elita find her way and take her seat at the best table? On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, author, Heather Holleman paints a picture of what it's like to feel left out, especially at a vulnerable age. This Seat’s Saved will help young readers on their journey with Jesus as they identify with the main character and learn to trust God through challenging times.
