The Dirt by Lori Culwell
Genre: YA Contemporary/Chick Lit – Release Date: Nov. 2011
Lucy Whitley cannot wait to get out of Palm Desert. It’s not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school—and practically the whole town.Fortunately, life is about to change forever. Lucy’s dad is getting re-married, and then she can transfer to a boarding school in Connecticut, escaping all the mean girls and the endless whispers about the Whitley family scandal. Everything is going to be perfect—as long as the wedding goes smoothly.

My Thoughts:

I love contemporary young adult novels, so I figured I would enjoy reading The Dirt and I was right. The Dirt was girly, it was fun, and it was just an all around good read. I’ll admit though at first I wasn’t sold on the story, but the more I read the more I liked it.

One thing I really liked about this story were that the characters were easy to relate to. My favorite character was Lucy, I thought she had a great personality and I liked that this story was told from her point of view. I could not stand Sloane’s character though, she was so snobby! I don’t like pretty girls who think they are better than everyone else.

Overall, I thought this was a very entertaining read. If you like girly books that are filled with drama and secrets, you should definitely check this one out!


My Rating:

4/5 Stars
