Oh my goodness. Fans of Stephanie's Skylar Hoyt series, go buy The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet right now!!
I was super excited to be able to review Ellie's story, especially after I enjoyed Skylar's so well. I must confess, Ellie is now my favorite. A introverted teen, who secretly loves to write, finds herself wanting in seemingly everyone's eyes. Including her parents. The way Miss Morrill styled Ellie's character and personality really shines and is attractive, making it easy to like Miss Sweet despite her flaws.
I love how this book is written in first person. The words flow so smoothly! I seriously could not stop reading once I begun. The need for sleep and a dying laptop battery are the only reasons I ever quit. It's that good, everyone. It's that good.
I also really loved how Stephanie incorporated all of the writing things Ellie experienced and learned. Like how to draft a query letter, proposal, etc. I also liked all the bits about the conference Ellie went too, that was really cool for me, as a teen writer. ;-)
I received this book from the author via Team Novel Teen, thanks!! :)
Ellie Sweet is a lot of things—good girl, novelist, silent adorer of
the new boy at school, Palmer. But when “outcast” gets added to the
list, she decides it’s time to take reality into her own hands … and
tweak it as needed.
In the pages of her book, she’s Lady Gabrielle, favorite of the
medieval Italian court. Her once-friends are reduced to catty
ladies-in-waiting, and the too-charming Palmer—who in real life never
spares her a second word—gets to be nothing more than a rake wracked by
unrequited love for her. She even has a perfect real-life villain in the
brooding Chase, who hails from the wrong side of town.
But just when she’s getting along great in her fictional world, the
real one throws her a few curves. With Chase pursuing her, Palmer
wanting to date her—but in secret—and the details of her manuscript
going public, Ellie suddenly receives more attention than she ever
really wanted. And when her former-friends discover what she’s been
writing, they’re determined to teach Ellie a lesson about the severe
consequences of using her pen as her sword.
