Review: The Lipstick Laws
Author: Amy Holder
From GoodReads, "At Penford High School, Britney Taylor is the queen bee. She dates whomever she likes, rules over her inner circle of friends like Genghis Khan, and can ruin anyone's life with a snap of perfectly manicured fingers. Just ask the unfortunate few who have crossed her. For April Bowers, Britney is also the answer to her prayers. April is so unpopular, kids don't even know she exists. But one lunch spent at Britney's table, and April is basking in the glow of popularity. But Britney's friendship comes with a high price tag. How much is April willing to pay?"
Every school has a Britney Taylor. You know the one……she gets any guy she wants, wears only the best clothes, and has a group of followers with hefty laws to follow to belong. There are also plenty of girls like April Bowers. The girls trying to just exist in the social nightmare called high school. So when Britney asked April to eat lunch with them it was a definite yes! I know this sounds like your typical “mean girl book or movie” but I found it was still a great read. I really enjoyed April Bowers because even though she joined the Britney Taylor clan, she still never lost her sense of what’s right and wrong. So when the clan ousted her, she wasn’t going to just sit back and do nothing about it! April rallied all the girls who had supposedly wronged Britney Taylor and gave her a taste of her own medicine. In finding this elite group of ousters she gained some great friendship and caught the attention of a boy she had her eye on. So in the end everything works out. It was a great read so give it a shot!
