A teen dance club opens and it seems that nearly everyone wants to go, Landry is not overly comfortable in that scene but like many girls her age (boys too) she does not want to feel so she has to decide what to do. Does she do what she wants to do or go with the crowd? I loved that this came up in the story, it is such a hard topic for young people to talk openly about with parents. It is a great starting point for a discussion with my daughter. “If you were in Landry’s shoes what would you do?”
Then there is the first date and all that goes with that. Landry in Like was the PERFECT ending for the Landry’s True Colors series. I am buying it in paperback for my own library and a paperback copy for my daughter as well. Krysten Lindsay Hager creates a tale that may help cross that generation gap that some kids and parents seem to have, opening doorways for them to be able to discuss what they might be too embarrassed to talk about on their own.
Friendships are really tested at this age and life seems to revolve around acceptance by peers. I love the way Ms. Hager develops the other characters. They each seem to have one foot in childhood and one foot in adulthood and they're all trying to forge their way through. From the outside, looking in, it's easy to see the decisions these teens should be making and the ways they should be reaching out or standing up for their friends, but at the same time, it's also easy to see why they do and say what they do. Maybe it's just that I've lived through it and it makes sense to me. It's amazing how each one is insecure about herself in different ways. The emotion is definitely abounding in this one!
I'm not sure how many books will entail Landry's story, but I'm eager to see what happens next and to watch her grow up some more.
Content: middle school/high school drama; mild romance. Clean!!
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
Landry in Like is another great story in the Landry's True Colors series by Krysten Lindsay Hager. I love Landry. She's sweet, she stands for what she believes in and she's honest. Sometimes she stumbles through life, which makes her realistic and approachable. It's what I like best about her. Landry's growing up and she's doing that in a really nice way. I love reading about her boyfriend, her friends and the things she likes to do.
Krysten Lindsay Hager knows how to write a story from the point of view of a fourteen-year-old. Her writing is realistic and it feels genuine. Landry matures and therefore Krysten Lindsay Hager's writing is more mature as well. I admire how she manages to match her writing with what she writes about. Reading about Landry brings back a lot of memories from my own childhood and I think it's great that she teaches girls that age some valuable lessons without making the story too obvious or moralistic. Landry in Like deals with a lot of different topics. Some light and fun and some a bit more heavy. I loved the balance and enjoyed reading the story very much. I think the Landry's True Colors series is great and highly recommend it.
