About the book:
Skylar Hoyt may have vowed to change her partying ways, but it's not so easy to change her friends. Even though the old Skylar is gone, she's still not sure who this new Skylar really is. Add to that two parents battling for her loyalty, a younger sister struggling with a crisis pregnancy, and a new boyfriend wishing for more of her time, and Skylar feels like she can't win. After all, how do you choose favorites among the people you love most?
My Review:
Overall I liked this second book in the The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series. I read it in order which I recommend because the second flows directly from the first. I did not face any of the situations dealt with in the book in high school but they definitely seemed realistic. The characters are well developed and the plot lines interesting. There are three the main being Skylar and her life. The two minor ones involve her pregnant teen sister and her feuding parents. The plot lines interact fine. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and see what happens with the characters. Recommended especially for fans of Christian YA. :)
About the author:
