There were quite a few laugh out loud moments in the beginning that made
this book a quick and light read even though it addressed some tough
issues of fitting in with friends, boys, high shool, etc. I especially
liked the character Becca who at one point decides to take on school
work and forget about boys and drama. But then Brent and Colt come into
her life. I give this book a 4 star review …I liked the twists and
turns it took with Brent and Colt."
it...Becca is a wonderful character that easily can connect to the
reader. She's funny, quirky, and witty...
favorite thing about Life, Love, and Surviving High School had to
be the characters. I loved the characterization, it was absolutely
fantastic. They all had unique personalities that they stayed true to,
which lead to believable and entertaining figures. Even the more minor
characters - like Becca's parents - had great moments that allowed them
to be some of my favorite characters. Then, of course, there's Colt…
entertaining and fun. Laughing and smiling half the time, I couldn't put
it down until I reached the final page…"
full of heart, humor and tells a very “close to home” tale about
being a freshman in high school through the eyes of a self-admitted
dork. Becca is always feeling she lives in the shadows of her boy-crazy,
sparkly BFFs! … Will her first year of high school be an awakening of
sorts? Will she survive?
nailed the emotional and mental turmoil of growing up with heart and
humor! Becca is a delightful heroine, a perfect blend of nerd, shy,
insecure, yet her head is not always in the clouds. Being inside that
head will have you laughing one minute, approving the next and wanting
to scream, “Hey, I’ve been where you are, open your eyes!” knowing
completely that she will not listen and she needs to find her own way.
Ms. Herrick brings a slice of high school back to life in all of its
glory, with all of its drama, in this light-hearted, fast-paced tale
that spans Becca’s first year of the high school like watching a
flower unfold on a time lapse screen. This is a coming of age story for
Becca and her BFFs filled with well-developed characters you will
recognize from your own past! Highly, highly recommended for ALL
