Barbie Girl book

It has been quite a long time since I did my last book review. Just recently I decided to pick up a book that I was given to by an author named Heidi Acosta. She was sitting right next to author Shayne Leighton from the series Of Light and Darkness at the Indie Book Fest this year in Orlando, Florida. Since I have been living in Orlando for almost 6-7 months now I had planned on going to see the Indie Book Fest to meet more authors and meet Shayne for the first time.

When the Book Fest was over I was helping Shayne and her mother get things packed up when I noticed a very interesting book right next to the table I was sitting at. Heidi Acosta was there and we ended up talking about how I was in the middle of a writer's block on my book that I have been writing since my sophomore year in high school. She was so kind enough to give me a copy of her book to give me some ideas on how to write. I finally found the time to read her book and I LOVE her writing.

This book is for the adult reading criteria than the teen. It is about two teens: Barbie and Dylan. Barbie is failing Math and she needs to pass so she can graduate and take her little brother Everette and leave her hometown forever. But the only person that can help her do that is Dylan, who in return he has been in love with a girl named Katie since he first saw her. Barbie makes a deal that she knows Dylan cannot refuse: get Katie to like Dylan in return for a passing grade.

What started off as a good idea turns out that it can be more than the two would have imagined. Their feelings become a monstrous whirlwind and they cannot tell what is right and what is wrong anymore when they are around each other. Will Barbie get the grade she needs to get out of town? Can Dylan finally get Kaite  onotice him for the first time? Or will there be more secrets than they have been trying to hide for so long from the world that they did not want to be discovered?

This is a book series and I highly recommend it to those who are in need of a good book. My overall rating for this book is a 5 of 5 and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
