RABT (Review): Changing My Wardrobe By: Deb Hanrahan


Synopsis:

Incoming freshman, Lindsey Ames, wants to take Italian, and she wants to join the National Honor Society.
She wants a new image, and she wants better clothes.
She wants Avery to stop tormenting her, and she wants Marco to ask her out.
She wants Jocelyn to go away, but she wants Grouper to be happy.
She wants to save Teeny's reputation, but she doesn't want to lose everything.
Will Lindsey find the courage to stand up to her enemies before it's too late?

Review: 
Wow. By the end of this story, I shed a few tears, and I have not done that in a while. Hanrahan's writing is just so well done; from the first page we are in Lindsey's life, and we see her efforts of trying to get a new start as she enters her first year of high school, by picking an outfit she would have not worn before in school. This reminded me of myself trying to pick a good enough outfit for the first day of high school. I think in some ways this story can be seen as relatable to others, as I felt myself connect with Lindsey and even Teeny in circumstances, and I think the emotions/feelings that Hanrahan incorporated in these characters were wonderfully woven to the situations they faced. This was a beautifully written story, and I can't wait to read other works of Hanrahan, as this story is one that will for sure stick with me in a good way, as it reminded me a few good messages, and I hope you will find some meaningful messages as well. 


My Rating: 4.5/5
My Audience Rating: Between PG & PG-13


Author Bio: Deb Hanrahan 





I live with my husband and three teenagers in the Chicagoland burbs. After graduating from the University of Illinois with a B.S. in Chemistry, I worked at a nuclear power plant for five years. I then left my career to stay at home with my three kids.
Seemingly, overnight, I went from being crazy-busy to having way too much time on my hands. With my husband working long hours and my kids pursuing their own lives, I had to reinvent myself. So, I decided to write that book I always wanted to write. Changing My Wardrobe is my first novel.

  3. My expectation of this dress was not high. However, when I received it in the mail and tried it on, it completely blew me away! It was so beautiful and figure flattering.
