Review by Suze
Landry's having a boyfriend, her modeling career is going pretty well and she has great friends. She's happy with the way things are, but they can't remain like that forever. Her world keeps changing. While she loves spending time at home her friends want to go to a teen dance club, a place that scares Landry. She doesn't like the noise and she doesn't feel comfortable there. Some of her best friends love going and then her best friend starts to hang out with other people. Unfortunately one of them doesn't like Landry at all and she makes life very difficult. Somehow Landry keeps getting into situations where she has to defend herself for things she didn't do. Can she make people see the truth?
Landry in Like is another great story in the Landry's True Colors series by Krysten Lindsay Hager. I love Landry. She's sweet, she stands for what she believes in and she's honest. Sometimes she stumbles through life, which makes her realistic and approachable. It's what I like best about her. Landry's growing up and she's doing that in a really nice way. I love reading about her boyfriend, her friends and the things she likes to do.
Krysten Lindsay Hager knows how to write a story from the point of view of a fourteen-year-old. Her writing is realistic and it feels genuine. Landry matures and therefore Krysten Lindsay Hager's writing is more mature as well. I admire how she manages to match her writing with what she writes about. Reading about Landry brings back a lot of memories from my own childhood and I think it's great that she teaches girls that age some valuable lessons without making the story too obvious or moralistic. Landry in Like deals with a lot of different topics. Some light and fun and some a bit more heavy. I loved the balance and enjoyed reading the story very much. I think the Landry's True Colors series is great and highly recommend it.
