2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...., February 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: On The Flip Side (Fab Life) (Paperback)
In the fourth book in the Fab Life series, Sunday starts her freshman year at Spelman and meets some new friends and tries to juggle her singing and songwriting career and college at the same time. Plus she's up for an AMA award and she is tempted to cheat on her boyfriend Sam and also learns that he lied to her in the past and that her cousin Dreya stabbed her in the back and Mystique might also be playing her as well.
Overall this book wasn't as good as the rest in the series, which was very disappointing since I love the series and was looking forward to this book. I'm guessing it's because the supporting characters like Dreya, Sam, Bethany, and Truth were all hardly in this book and because the whole college setting in YA stuff is just boring. I could have done without the whole Sunday at Spelman parts. Plus well I was okay with the whole carbon copy characters to real life people in the last book in this book it was kind of annoying (it was obvious that Mystique and Zillionaire are Beyonce and Jay Z and that Evan guy is P. Diddy.) Plus a couple of things made me mad in this book, for starters Sunday makes constant references about Bethany and Dilly's relationship because he's in high school but he is a senior which is just a year younger then them, the way Sunday talks about it (for instance like when Bethany found out she was pregnant she told her that Dilly was "too young" for that type of relationship) you would think they were at least 10 years older then the guy and plus as I recall Sunday was kind of feeling Dilly herself in the second book. Plus the whole thing with forcing Bethany to get an abortion was so over the top! Who would do that? What kind of message is that to send to young people? If you get pregnant and want a music career you better get an abortion? But anyway I'm so hoping the next book is better because this one just didn't live up to the past books at all.
