Through Thick & Thin, London Confidential Series #2
A great read!
Sandra Byrd has once again out-done herself. If itÃ¢ÂÂs even possible the second book in her London Confidential Series, Through Thick and Thin, is better than the first. In this book we once again join fifteen-year-old Savvy Smith as she navigates through her new life in England.
Things are finally beginning to look up for Savvy- she now is the super-secret writer on the schools new advice column Ã¢ÂÂAsking for TroubleÃ¢ÂÂ, and it seems that she might be on the verge of finally having a friend. Of course, to everyone else sheÃ¢ÂÂs still the newspaper delivery girl, and naturally Savvy still wants to see her name on the by-line of an article. So when her almost-friend Penny offers her the chance of a lifetime she grabs at it. However, things donÃ¢ÂÂt exactly go as planned, and soon Savvy finds herself at odds with her family and Penny as well, the consequence of her own foolish actions.
I absolutely loved this book. Not only do you see Savvy once again being her very-human self and learning some new life lessons, but you really canÃ¢ÂÂt help but love her for being the person that she is. And although itÃ¢ÂÂs painful at times to see her having to learn from her mistakes, itÃ¢ÂÂs also encouraging to see how she reacts to her circumstances and becomes a better person for it.

I love this series.
Review by Jill Williamson
The London Confidential series is where British fashion, friendship, and guys collide, and where an all-American girl learns to love life and live out her faith.
SavvyÃ¢ÂÂs dream is to write a full article in the school newspaper. She comes up with the perfect idea. A fashion show. An even if she manages to score tickets to the illusive event, can she convince her editor to give her a chance to write the article? Savvy is going to have to bend some rules and twist some arms to get things to go her way. Will putting that much strain on her friends and family be worth it?
I love this series. This is book two in Sandra ByrdÃ¢ÂÂs London Confidential series about Seattle native, Savvy Smith, whose family moved to the suburbs of London. She has settled in at her new school and is trying very hard to make friends. Savvy is a lot of fun to read about. I enjoy experiencing high school in a different country where English isnÃ¢ÂÂt quite the same. These books are quick reads in a mass market paperback size. They are fun and always get you thinking about the choices you make. If you havenÃ¢ÂÂt read them yet, be sure to start with book one. We reviewed it here. These books are great reads for girls 12 and up.

I'm a teenager living in the real world. Some days are good, some days I just don't talk about, and sometimes hilarious things happen to me. Sandra Byrd has written a gem; a slice of what could be my life. 'Through Thick and Thin' kept me curious, laughing, and thinking about the choices I myself make. Generally, I'm not a fan of sequels, but 'Through Thick and Thin' was just as much fun as 'Asking for Trouble.' I can't wait for the next two!

My 14-year-old daughter is an avid reader. She's always been a fan of Sandra Byrd's books so she was thrilled to recently get the first two books in this new series. She couldn't wait to read this second book after devouring the first one, "Asking for Trouble." According to her, just like the first in the series this book did NOT disappoint!My daughter's personal feedback is: When I started reading the book "Through Thick & Thin," I was captivated. The way Sandra wrote the book kept me wondering what was happening next. This book was very well written and I had a lot of fun reading it. I loved everything about it. I can't wait until Sandra's 3rd and 4th book come out, which are "Don't Kiss Him Goodbye" and "Flirting with Disaster". This is one book that I would recommend to any tween/teenage girls.
