What follows is not a review, but a fangirl-ish "episode". (I'm sorry, I'm just too excited!) I finished this book at 4am yesterday and had to forced myself to go to sleep, when all I wanted to write the review right then while things were fresh! So I went to bed and decided to sleep on it...

First, you've got Rosie. She's gorgeous, outgoing, and a flirt. Her best friend had it hard last year, and Rosie's made it her goal to make sure she's happy. :)

Then you've got Maddie: the best friend, book nerd, and at times overlooked sidekick. She's been away in Europe gettin' her soccer on, mingling with the guys. While over there she becomes "Britney." Do you understand? She returns home with toned legs, an exotic tan, and stunning blonde hair.... *FLIPS HAIR OVER SHOULDER*

Which brings me to the next character: Cory. Aka, Rosie's boyfriend, and a star football player. Worth mentioning: He's also the guy who takes a special interest in Maddie after seeing her transformation.

And finally....(I saved the best for last!) The new town celebrity: Alex Goode. A few years ago, Alex gained national attention after he stopped a school shooting.


1) It is VERY relatable, and I don't say that lightly.
2) It is diverse.
3) The lead protagonist, though described as perfect, is nowhere near. You can't help but root for her as she undergoes this "evolution" throughout the book. There were times when I wanted her to step up and really stand her ground, but then I realized that her strength was her patience.
4) Alex. Oh Alex. I liked everything about him. The person that Maciel created was so heartfelt. I just wanted to give him a big hug and pet him...and tell him it was going to be okay!

5) Lucky Girl pushes boundaries, and in doing so makes you question your morals.
6) The writing was impeccable.
7) The storyline SOLID.
8) I loved the main characters, as well as minor characters. (Ryan!!!!) To me that is the true test of a book. I felt like I knew Cory, Stephanie, and Ryan just as well as Rosie. (Even Gabe.)


Lucky Girl will be available on April 25th!
