Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite
Best Friends...Forever? Landry's True Colors Series: Book Two by Krysten Lindsay Hager is the story of a young girl who is trying to come to terms with how time can change certain things. You would think that being a model would be a great way to gain popularity at school, but Landry Albright knows this is not the way things are. There was a time when she had a great set of friends and a boyfriend to call her own, but things changed very quickly for her. While the rest of her class is getting excited about starting high school next year, she is trying to come to terms with the fact that her boyfriend just broke up with her and she doesn’t seem to have any friends anymore. To make matters a little more difficult, she gets to have two makeovers so that she has a higher chance of winning the American Ingénue modeling competition. With so many things happening at the same time, it is hard for her to find her footing. Can she figure out what is happening around her before her time runs out?
This was an entertaining and fun novel to read. I felt for young Landry, I really did. This is a great novel for the teens and tweens who are either in middle school or are starting high school soon. They will experience the ups and downs of high school beforehand and, hopefully, they’ll also get a head start on how to act and how to cope if things are a little too hard. Landry is a great role model; she is calm, collected and she just never loses her temper. She does get nervous, but she handles the situation with grace and sets a good example. Her character growth is great; from the nervous girl at the beginning of the novel, she turns to be a strong and powerful young woman in the end. Impressively accurate about the emotions and drama of a high school. I enjoyed it! This fast-paced novel is great for all ages!
Best Friends...Forever? is a 2019 Readers' Favorite Silver Medal Winner in the Children - Preteen genre!
