Life at Kingston High,
The Best Friend
By Melody Carlson
Lishia Vance goes from being surrounded by her friends one day to a social outcast the next—without explanation! When she finally makes a connection with Riley Atkins, a popular cheerleader, things start looking up. But is Riley really as good a friend as she seems? Or is Lishia better off without her?
Melody always writes well and is a “trustworthy” author. So for that, I say buy this book for your daughter if she likes teen girl books, or you are a Melody Carlson fan in general as we are here (we have lots of her books).
But this book is typical teenage melodrama mean girls stuff going on.
Lies, deceptions, teenage drinking, boyfriend, cheerleading, disappointed parents and teachers, lessons learned, and finally the teenager leaning on God.
There really isn’t much to say about a typical teen girl book. Same story, different characters. Its not a bad book. My daughter is reading it and really likes it. Its just nothing special or fresh and new, Sorry!
Its a quick read for a fast reader, my oldest could read it in a weekend as she fits in her chores. My youngest reads a little slower so it will take her a bit longer.
I wish I could write more but nothing stands out. Like I said, we are fans of Melody Carlson, its just this book is typical is all.
