Title- Life, Love & Lemons
Author- Magan Vernon
Publisher- Beautifully Broken Books
When life hands you lemons, sometimes you have to say screw the lemons and bail.
Seventeen-year-old Bentley Evans had it all. Then her Dad got laid off.
Now she has to move across town to a small apartment and leave her life of luxury for public school and a job at the local burger place. Just when her world seems like it’s crumbling she finds solace in the unlikely punk boy next door, Kai Stone. But as their relationship blossoms, a jealous ex-girlfriend and a secret to tell that threatens to bring disaster back into Bentley’s life.
What a cute story for young readers! This story was about Bentley who’s world just got turned upside down when she needs to change schools and move to an apartment after her father gets laid off. Bentley learns that her friends might not be the people she thought and sometimes you find love in the least expected place.
I really liked that the hero in this story wasn’t your normal guy; he was a punk rocker that Bentley could relate to. I also have a bit of a sweet sport for those rocker boys especially when I was in high school. Both Kai and Bentley were very liable characters, we never saw the stuck up girl in Bentley, unlike her friend Taylor. Kai was just likable and what he did in the end was GREAT!
Magan Vernon did a great job of showing the emotions of what Bentley was going though by her dad getting laid off. Many teens could probably relate to this experience too.
The only thing about this story is at times it seemed a little slow, but all in al it was a very enjoyable story!
