So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones
Summary: Bella Kirkwood had it all: A-list friends at her prestigious private school, Broadway in her backyard, and Daddy's MasterCard in her wallet. Then her father, a plastic surgeon to the stars, decided to trade her mother in for a newer model. When Bella's mom falls in love with a man she met on the Internet--a factory worker with two bratty sons--Bella has to pack up and move in with her new family in Truman, Oklahoma. On a farm no less. Forced to trade her uber-trendy NYC lifestyle for down-home charm, Bella feels like a pair of Rock & Republic jeans in a sea of Wranglers. At least some of the people in her new high school are pretty cool. Especially the hunky football player who invites her to lunch. And maybe even the annoying--but kinda hot--editor of the school newspaper. But before long, Bella smells something rotten in the town of Truman, and it's not just the cow pasture. With her savvy reporter's instincts, she is determined to find the story behind all the secrets. "How can a girl go on when her charmed life is gone and God appears to be giving her the total smackdown?"
Rad Rating: 5 Stars
Genre: YA, Comedy, Christian, Chick-Lit, Mystery
Rad Review: Okay. I'm a total geek for romantic comedy. Fun, flirty, and hilarious is a ride I will take any day. This is one that totally fits that genre. Christian Author, Jenny B. Jones hits the spot. Bella's adjustment is the main topic of the book, but then you throw in snarky wit and humor, a little mystery, some romance, blend it all together and you're set for this rollicking ride. The writing was just fabulous! Smooth and like I said already, funny. You get into Bella, you laugh with her, you feel with her. I will say that her really stubborn attitude dragged on more than I wanted , but It cleared up along with everything else. Some things felt a little fast, but other than that I have no complaints.
It's a Princess loses her tiara and slips in the mud story. One that'll appeal to all YA lovers.
