    Reviewed by Randstostipher "tallnlankyrn" Nguyen for TeensReadToo.com

    Sisters getting pregnant, mom remarrying three times, car accidents, quick amnesiac episodes -- these all sound like another episode of a soap opera. Unfortunately, for Abby Savage, that's actually her life, and she knows that it resembles a soap because that is all she watches. <BR/><BR/>With her family's history of dating and getting pregnant and then getting heartbroken, Abby is ready to find the perfect someone with her list of five things called her "One true love plan." <BR/><BR/>1. Find someone new. Abby knows this firsthand since her sisters' boyfriends are passed around and recycled like a bottle of water. Of course, this isn't so easy since the people Abby goes to school with have been the same ones since kindergarten. <BR/><BR/>2. No baggage from past relationships allowed. Abby's sisters find her the perfect babysitter. They just don't understand that it's their baby. <BR/><BR/>3. Looks aren't everything. Falling in love isn't mainly centered on looks! <BR/><BR/>4. Don't need him. They are always going to make promises, like how her father always promised her wonderful gifts for her birthday, but it never happened. Disappointed with this fact, Abby finds it fit to just trust herself. <BR/><BR/>5. Get out of town. How can you find someone new when everyone has dated everyone else? <BR/><BR/>With this list, new knowledge on soaps, and a front-row seat at the Fancy White Trash that is her family, Abby will soon find that one true love. <BR/><BR/>But will it help her get through the three pregnancies currently in her family, all by the same person? And can it stop her from getting back with the old boyfriend who broke her heart? Or will she just have to figure out that when finding that one true love, lists aren't necessarily needed? <BR/><BR/>Cute, humorous, and very scandalous, FANCY WHITE TRASH is the next guilty pleasure. Just with the first chapter, readers can see that Abby's life screams "Jerry Springer episode." The obstacles that Abby must face, from the mistakes that her family has made to adapting to their lifestyle, will ultimately make readers fall in love with her. A novel that is unlike most out there in the market, FANCY WHITE TRASH should be on your "to-read list!"

    This book is filled with humor and it will be easy for teens to identify with the book's main character. The author is an exciting new talent who is sure to become a favorite with the older teen audience.

    Relentless Laughs

    This book grabs you by the collar and makes you laugh over and over again. It is filled with great characters that are full of foibles, but are lovable in spite of (or maybe because of) them. You genuinely feel like you know them because their essence has been so perfectly captured and presented. Great silly fun that has a heart.

    Loved this book. You really understand what Abby goes through with her sisters, her mother, and with the guy she is trying so hard not to fall for again, Jackson-formally dubbed Jack-Off. I loved her determination and wisdom for realizing her family's mistakes and wanting to learn from them. Her sister's and mother are really easy, wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Abby constantly shows that she is opposite of them. But is trying to mute her own heart going to help anyone? Read to find out!!!

    AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ!!!!!!

    I'd give it six stars if that were physically possible. Walking through a library was the first time this novel caught my eye. I know, you're never suppose ro judge a book by its cover but that is honnestly the only reason i picked up the book. And with such a name? How could one simply resist? The family. The neighbors. The town. THE PLOT. In a word? Wondrful. Though it didnt seem like it in the moment, they fit together so well. I really want some kind of trilogy to emerge from this or movie at least. I can never forget this crazy story. LOVE!

    A New Way to See Life

    This novel was a way to see, not a person's perfect life, but how strange and connected it could be. It was not confusing readers because there were no missing parts. Abby was a character who was clear and to the point with her family's backround story. It contained behavior only a teenager would understand, which makes this book perfect for young adults such as myself. The characters, plot, and setting were all well connected with one another to make the story understandable. From the romance to humor, I give this novel and Marjetta Geerling a two thumbs up!!!

    Don't Bother

    This book seemed more geared towards teens than adults. It's about high school aged kids. I was disappointed.
