4 Stars: I Really Liked It
Isabella Kirkwood had it all: popularity at a prestigious private school in Manhattan, the latest fashions, and a life of privilege and luxury. Then her father, a plastic surgeon to the stars, decided to trade her mother in for a newer model.
When her mother starts over with her new husband, Bella is forced to pack up and leave all she knows to live with her new family in Oklahoma. Before her mother can even say “I do,” Bella’s life becomes a major “don’t.”
Can Bella survive her crazy new family? Will the school survive Bella? How can a girl go on when her charmed life is gone and God gives her the total smackdown?
First, I have to give a shout out to my blogging bud Inky (Book Haven Extraordinaire) for recommending this book. Thanks girl! I really enjoyed it. 😀
Poor Isabella is having a rough time. Her parents divorce, and her mom remarries moving Bella from the Manhattan elite to an Oklahoma farm. I love when Bella first meets a cow and gets up close and personal with a dumpster. . . hilarious. She makes some mistakes in her journey to cope with her new life. It’s painful to watch, but she lives and learns.
This book is funny and heartwarming with a little romance. If you enjoy contemporary YA Christian fiction you’ll love this book. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series!
