Limos, Lattes, and My Life on the Fringe by Nancy Rue
Another book review! First of all, I’m not a teenager, not a high-schooler, so I am not the age group this book was written for. BUT—I will say I enjoyed reading it! My daughter has read other books by Nancy Rue written for younger kids (the Lily series) and they are books which are helpful to her for slipping lessons in while she’s entertained by the plot. I can say that this book, geared for older girls, does that same thing.
Tyler Bonning, the main character in this story, is a girl who is out-of-place in a high school where she doesn’t fit in with any particular “group”—and is very aware of it. She struggles to find her place or even a cause, and when she does, she really takes off! Through the book she’s guided and inspired by a magical-type book which in the end turns out to be a Bible which speaks just to her.
The book is a little slow to start, but once it does it’s a great read! I did like it and the values it upheld. I thought the magic book part was a little weird, but it did bring it all around in the end. I would certainly recommend this book for high-school aged girls!
I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
