All That Glitters Review
PUB DATE: August 2009
Thank you to Nicole O'Dell and Barbour Books for sending me this book to read and review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Drew Daniels finally has what she thought she wanted—popularity and a cute boyfriend. But now she’s faced with choosing between pleasing her boyfriend and doing what’s right. Tween readers make the choice in this interactive story and see how the consequences change Drew’s life. Includes a contract and prayer to remind the reader of the importance of making godly decisions.
This is the second book in the series but you don't have to read the first book first. They are stand alone and each book is a new situation and new characters. This was another fun and quick read.
All that Glitters is about two twin sisters, Dani and Drew. They are beginning 9th grade. Dani is the quiet reserved twin who likes things the way they are and Drew is wanting to branch out and be her unique self and not be so much referred to as the twin.
The girls go back to school shopping with their mother and agree to share the budget on clothes but Drew has a plan up her sleeve, when they get to the mail she tells them she wants to get her hair cut differently. Which she does and as they are about to leave she asks her mother if they can stay because she wants to get some special clothes. Her mother agrees but she has guidelines to follow. You know this will be trouble but Drew is smart with what she buys knowing that she is buying the wrong clothes but she makes it work so her mother will agree.
Once school begins Drew announces she is going to try out for cheer leading. She makes the team and more. With being in cheer leading she is exposed to the football team and the popular world. Not wanting to be an outcast she does what ever it will take to be with Trevor and that group even if it mean she is lying to her parents and perhaps getting into trouble with the police.
I am really looking forward to reading Magna and Making Waves when they come out.
I think as a parent this is a great book for young girls to read. I know as a parent I am already worrying about this stuff and Michael is only 6.
