When you live with only your big toe rooted in faith, it can land you in some pretty sticky situations. Yoli, Paulina, Ria, Ashley, & Karyn are recent college grads. They become best friends as they navigate dating, careers, grad school, parents, finances, fashion, and faith in the multicultural environment of Washington, DC. Reading this novel is like spending quality time with your five best girlfriends, flaws and all. YOLI, the alpha girl, is bossy, rebellious, uses foul language, and yet is somehow spiritually wise. Adopted from China, she’s bitter about her parents abandoning her to be overseas missionaries. She’s a law student with a passion for fashion and the instigator for wild nights out. PAULINA, an athletic brunette, is Yoli’s studious roommate and fellow law student. A recent convert to Christianity, she struggles with scandalous celebrity parents and a tendency to drink when she’s stressed out. RIA is a willowy blonde with tons of common sense. She has recently moved to Virginia to be near her high school sweetheart and to work on a graduate degree in Education. Raised in a large, Catholic family, her life has been without crisis…so far. ASHLEY is a frumpy church secretary with no ambition. Overly sheltered growing up, she has never made an adult decision. Yoli decides Ashley is a worthy project, and the new glamor creates an attention monger. KARYN, Yoli’s best friend and fellow law student, is a beautiful, amber-eyed Black girl. Strong, intelligent, and independent, she sees religion as a thing for hypocrites. Yoli’s wild streak has always confirmed that. Though jaded about men, she secretly hopes for a Prince Charming. Will her been-there-done-that attitude be a barrier to personal fulfillment? Together these ladies go to DC nightclubs and attend a “young professionals” Bible study in Yoli and Paulina’s tiny suburban apartment. They often end up in funny and sometimes shocking situations. Enjoy the adventure of life with them as they try to find their balance in this book of Edgy Christian Fiction. Have you ever wondered…What if someone had invited God into Sex in the City? Or what if the main character in The Devil Wears Prada had a few praying girlfriends as she made her big life decisions? That’s where you’ll find Big Toe People. Why the wacky title? Instead of standing firm in the faith, their feet on the Rock of Jesus, Big Toe People would rather do their own thing and just keep a big toe in heaven.
