It's All About Us by Shelley Adina

Lissa Mansfield is used to being popular. But when she starts school at Spencer Academy she sees that she'll have to work harder than she thought to gain admission to the "in crowd" there. Lissa has to juggle dealing with her outspoken roommate, snagging her dream guy, and keeping up on her schoolwork on top of that. She finds out that keeping God at the top of her list of priorities is harder than it looks when you're preoccupied with your social life. Who knew finding a place at Spencer would be so complicated?

I didn't expect to like this book but I ended up loving it. It was very realistic and the writing was fantastic. Adina throws in the religious aspect without being pushy or overbearing. People that have different religious beliefs than the ones the characters in the book have would still be able to read this book without being offended or bored. I think of this book as a religious version of the A-List but with a great plot. The story is believable and interesting. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I recommend this book to teens of the Christian faith and people who like general chick lit.

4 out of 5 stars

I won all three books in this series from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food!

  2. I have this one, but have yet to read it. I actually started it, but then didn't go on. haha
