Book Feature: Sorry, Bestie + Exclusive Author Interview with Felicity Abbott

Our latest book feature tackles an important issue that concerns many kids. Bullying has remained prevalent nowadays where at least 20% of the students say that they have experienced bullying in school. These incidents had led to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, and low morale.

This is why spreading awareness and inspiring hope are very important. We need to help other kids understand that what seems to be a meaningless joke or prank may affect others negatively. It is also important to empower the kids on how to cope and deal with situations like this.

Thus, we are happy to learn about the book, Sorry, Bestie written by Felicity T. Abbott who is a veteran Christian teacher.

Felicity enjoys working with pre-teens and teenagers. She often mentors students as they deal with life's experiences and helps students gain a Christian perspective on life and everyday difficulties and today, we have the opportunity to interview the author as she shares about her first book.

1. Can you share with us something about the book that isn't in the blurb?

There is more than one theme in the story. Besides the themes of friendship and bullying awareness, the themes of self-confidence, courage, and prayer are prevalent in the story.

2. What inspired the idea for your latest book?

Being a teacher for 15+ years I have seen students try to handle various academic and social situations. I extrapolated from and expanded upon those experiences.

3. How long did it take you to complete the book?

I wrote the book on and off for three years. I reread and revised it many times.

4. What part of the book was most challenging to write and why?

For me, the most challenging part was making sure that all the storylines worked together and gelled. It's annoying to read a story with holes in the plot or loose ends.

5. What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

My hope is that readers will realize that no matter how large the problem may be, you can always go to Jesus in prayer. He is always available to hear your prayer no matter how alone you may feel. Friends, teachers, and even family may let us down but Jesus is always there to help, to give you wisdom and courage.

6. If you’re planning a sequel or write the next book, can you share a tiny bit about your plans for it?

I am working on a sequel of sorts. The best friend of the main character in Sorry, Bestie will be the main character. The story will be about Jade's experiences before leaving for her new school and continuing on at the new school Good Shepherd Christian Academy.

7. Where can they buy your books or find out more about you?

Sorry, Bestie is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,,,, and many other independent booksellers.

More about me and my book can be found at the following places: Family Fiction,, and Goodreads.


Thank you, Felicity, for agreeing to this interview. We are thrilled to learn more about you and your book and we are excited for the sequel as well.
