It's All About Us by Shelley Adina and US series giveaway ~ Chloe-Anne's Take

Lissa Mansfield is going to a new school, Spencer Academy. A school for kids who have trust founds and parents with money. Lissa is used to being the popular one, who everyone supposedly likes. Much to Lissa’s disgust this spot at Spencer Academy is already taken by Vanessa Talbot. Lissa will do anything in her power to become Vanessa’s new best friend.

Lissa’s new room mate is Gillian Chang. Just like Lissa she is a Christian but doesn’t leave her faith to herself, she is determined to try and tell everyone about God. Gillian tries to help Lissa when she sees her struggling with her faith, but Lissa won’t take it. She’s going to do whatever she wants and no one is going to stop her. Callum McCloud is Lissa’s new boyfriend, and now that she’s in the ‘in’ group nothing could be better, but when Callum pressures Lissa to go all the way, will she?

Will she stand up for her faith or will she fall into the trap of today’s world?

It’s All About Us is not like books that I have read before because it is based on a rich girl who goes to a school for rich kids. Shelley Adina has done an excellent job writing this book and I can’t wait until I read the other books in the series. This book shows us that even as Christians we still make mistakes and have to face the consequences. We always need Christian friends no matter what you are doing or where you are. Christian friends are what God gave us for support in out walk of faith and to help us stay in a relationship with God. The novel also gives us insight to what can happen if you don’t spend much time with God. We start falling away from him and start to find it harder to make the right decisions because we don’t think things through clearly like we should. When we become far away from God we start making poor decisions.

It’s All About Us has a lot of things that relate to what Christian teenagers struggle with. Shelley Adina has done an extremely good job of including it in the book. The story was very well written and I recommended it to people teenagers over 14.

I think I would have loved to meet Kirk Cameron or Michael J. Fox when I was a teenager. I was not one to go gaga over stars, like my sister, though.

I would love to read this, and then pass the books along to a teenage girl I know :)

I don't remember being "desperate" to meet any stars (I'd probably have been more excited to meet an author like Linda Chaikin or Gilbert Morris), but after a bit of thought I think I would have enjoyed meeting the girl who played "Christy" - I know her name was Kelly and I can't believe I can't remember her last name but my mind has drawn a blank. Great review, and thanks for the awesome giveaway!
