    I was really excited to read another RL. Unfortunately I wasn't a huge fan of this one. I was a little bit bored. Nothing really was going on and I just felt like it could've been a really good book, but that it didn't measure up. I would totally recommend the first three books, just not this one. Hope there's more RL's to come!

    Nancy Rue's newest teen novel centers on Tyler Bonning, a girl on the fringe who, as a prank from the popular kids, is nominated for prom queen. At first, Tyler is mortified. She's always hated this school and now has even more reason. But when she discovers how important the prom is to her cousin, and how elite the event has become, she decides to use her new status as a platform for social reform. She initiates a "Prom for Everyone" campaign that seeks to level the field, allowing the less-than-wealthy, not-so-popular and even the outcasts on the fringe to attend and enjoy the prom.

    It's no surprise when she receives opposition from the "ruling class" (a.k.a. the most popular circles), but it seems this endeavor turns all her relationships topsy. She finds some common ground with her previously alien cousins, a very unlikely friend in the class president, and enemies among those believed to be her closest friends. Even her parents fall on an unpredicted side of this issue.

    In the meantime, a strange book abandoned on the bus forces Tyler to think about God and what role He plays in her life. Is it possible that He could be a personal God? One who actually cares about Tyler and what happens in her life?

    This book dives into the sticky side of relationships and social heirarchies with drama, action and even a touch of romance.

    What I Like: I love everything about this book! It features strong, well-written characters, a multi-faceted plot, a solid faith foundation, a respectful view of adults and Christians ... there is absolutely nothing not to like about it. I especially appreciated the diversity of characters. It is rare to find solid Christian YA novels that feature African Americans as a main character rather than a sidekick. It is even more rare to see edifying, healthy interracial relationships. This book has both. The author left me wanting more of the series.

    What I Dislike: Nothing.

    Overall Rating: Excellent!
