First Impressions: I have come to find I adore the genre of Chic
First Impressions: I have come to find I adore the genre of Chick Lit and have recently been reading many of these types of books. So when I was asked by Lori's Publicist to read and review her book I was super excited. I just love the cover of the book, so very simple and fits the story to a tee. From what I read in the blurb about the book provided for me I knew The Dirt would be a excellent fit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My Review: Upon opening the book and reading the first page I was hooked already. The story moved along very quickly and as I read I found there was never a dull moment throughout the book. While The Dirt is a short read with only 205 pages it surely packed a punch; leaving the reading always wanting more.
Lucy Whitley and her two sisters, Sloane and are the talk of the town. Being rich and having wild gossip always surrounding them is part of there every day lifes. Lucy wants nothing more than to get through her Father's wedding, move away from all of drama and go to a prestigious boarding school in Connecticut. Oh course nothing seems to go as planned for Lucy. When her Father and new step-mother are about to say their "I DO"S", when "someone" from the past shows up with shocking news. Now Lucy is being forced to leave for vacation with her family and the "new addition" is coming along for the ride. While what comes in the story next will blow you away. The Drama, The Deception and The Dirt makes for a thrilling read.
I adore everything about the book from the cover to the story itself. Very fresh and unique. I loved how smooth and fast the pace of the book when. The story and the character's were very entrancing. I could not put the book down, literally. I stay awake until 1 AM to finish the book. I just found I NEEDED to know what came next and how it would end. I really enjoyed Lucy's characteristics although I did feel she was a but whiny at times. Sloane. Well she is the girl you love to hate, always at the root of all the drama and scandal's. Author Lori Culwell has written such a fun book for all ages and definitely knows how to dish out The Dirt!
Final Thoughts: The book has beyond any doubt lived up to my expectation's. The Dirt is a true form of a Chick Lit novel. Anyone who enjoy these types of books as I do would wholeheartedly "dig" The Dirt.

Review Of The Dirt By Lori Culwell
I highly enjoyed reading The Dirt By Lori Culwell. She wrote a great story about a family of four sister's from the perspective of one of them Luck Whitley. It captured my attention from the very first page which actually consisted of e-mails between the family. I enjoyed that because it made the book somehow more real if that makes sense. Lucy Whitley is the nerdy sister of the group. She has a low opinion of herself because she feels her sister Sloane it the "pretty" sister. Her sister belongs to a super secret society of girls called the Pretty Girls or PG for short. Therefore her sister is a raging terror in and out of school. Lucy has two best friends Finch and Dylan. They are more like sister's then friends and they vow to never be PG (even if anyone would actually ask them....lol). At the start of this book they are getting ready to go to the wedding of their father and his girlfriend Lisa. Lisa seems to be the typical soon-to-be stepmother. She would like to erase all signs of a family before she got their and create her new starter family. Although Lucy doesn't really want her dad to marry Lisa she supports him in the hopes of going to a boarding school in Connecticut called Darlington. Lucy feels this is the best way to escape her sister Sloane, being teased at school and the whole "Whitney Family Scandal". But something happens at the wedding that turns Lucy's whole world upside down. I would really love to tell you more BUT I feel you need to read what happens at the wedding for you to really enjoy what goes on in the rest of the story. This book kind of reminded me of the Lindsay Lohan movie Mean Girls (LOVED that movie). If all Lori's books are as great as this one sign me up to read them all. On a scale from 1-10 I give The Dirt a big 10. If you are looking for a great story with radically different siblings, a fast paced story, "mean girl" type antics, and of course a great guy you MUST READ The Dirt. Everyone needs to go out right now and pick themselves up a copy and learn what it really means to be a Whitney.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
