Betrayal of the Band
Three friends. One summer. Countless consequences.
Lured away by a college band promising more singing exposure, ambitious high school senior, Zoey Harris, abandons her boyfriend, her band, and her values.
Justin Conrad is determined not to make the mistakes his dad made that nearly tore their family apart, so he will support Zoey's every decision--even if he knows it's the worst decision for her and for him.
Being a drummer is all Sawyer Mahon has. When Zoey abandons them, Sawyer sees his future fading faster than the crash of cymbals. After all, what good is a drummer without a band?
But after one wrong kiss, more than just the future of their band is destroyed. Can Zoey, Justin, Sawyer, and their band survive betrayal?

Question 1: Of the three main characters—Zoey, Justin, and Sawyer—who do you relate to most? Why?
Question 2: The theme of this book is betrayal. Which role do Zoey, Justin, and Sawyer each play, the betrayer, the betrayed or both? How did they respond in that role?
Question 3: Have you ever felt betrayed by someone close to you? How did you respond?
Question 4: Zoey questions her relationship with Justin after kissing Sawyer. (That must’ve been some kiss!) Do you think a kiss is enough to base a relationship on? How important is physical attraction? What other qualities are necessary to build a healthy relationship?
Question 5: Justin believes his faith is strong—until he’s challenged to forgive Sawyer. Has someone ever hurt you so deeply that you struggled, or even failed, to forgive them? Does forgiveness heal you or the person who wrong you? Or both? How?
Question 6: Sawyer acts and feels like the bad guy, and he’s okay with that. But after he meets Chey, he wants someone to see him as good. Is there or has there been someone in your life who makes you want to be a better person? In what ways did you change? Do you think positive changes to earn someone’s approval is good? Or is changing to impress someone always bad?
Question 7: Each member of the band—Zoey, Justin, and Sawyer—plays a different instrument. After Zoey joins Aurora Fire, Justin and Sawyer try to perform without her, but their performance is missing something. Is each member necessary? How is this similar to how the church is described in I Corinthians 12:19-20: If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
