I absolutely loved this book. LIFE JUST GOT REAL is a
book and perfect young readers and those wanting something
that focuses on how faith plays a part in our daily lives.
While there is a religion based theme to this book, it was
incorporated into the story line beautifully. I didn't
like I was having someone else's religious crammed down my
throat. LIFE JUST GOT REAL is one of those books that you
pick on a whim and end of loving every single page of it.
Sadie Roberton, with the help of Cindy Coloma, brings a
wholesome, faith-based story line to a younger group of
readers in an absolutely flawless way. This is the first
time I had a chance to read anything from Sadie Robertson,
but I am sure this one won't be the last.
From Dancing with the Stars runner-up and Duck
Dynasty star Sadie Robertson comes a fun novel about two
teenage girls from different backgrounds and opposite
lifestyles who discover there is more to friendship than
meets the eye.
Sixteen-year-old A.J. Smith, born and raised in backwoods
Tennessee, loves nothing more than repairing broken cars
with her father and hanging out with her brothers and their
friends. Not far away in the busy city of Nashville, Kate
Kelly is always dressed in the latest fashion, wearing
clothes from her motherâ€™s boutique and jetting around the
world with her father.
When A.J. starts going to the school Kate attends, they
instantly dislike each other. But as the year progresses,
Kateâ€™s brother Val is drawn to A.J., and when prom comes
around, he asks her to be his dateâ€”much to his sisterâ€™s
displeasure. But Kate has bigger things to think about,
including the reality show Real Life. Everyone says
the show is her chance to make it big. But then the
producers decide to bring A.J. into the show.
As the producers of Real Life try to stir up the
drama, Kateâ€™s idea of the perfect prom spins out of control.
When Kateâ€™s life goes disastrously wrong, it is A.J. who
steps up to helpâ€”no questions asked. A friendship between
the two girls just might growâ€”but only if they both live
original and stay true to whom God made them to be.
In Life Just Got Real Sadie Robertson inspires teens
to find the value God has placed inside us all and to live
with confidence and purpose in a very complicated world.
