    I'll admit that I mostly stick to fantasy when I read YA books, but I really enjoyed this one. Katrina Abbott has created an interesting storyline with great characters. This book was a fast-paced read and I can't wait to read the next one.

    I think this book is a perfect read for teens...please note it's a good read period. Since I went to an all girls high school, I definitely remember the boy crazy faze, lol. The favorite all boys school with the cuties guys that you always wanted at school dances and to partner with in plays. And the clicks and the insecurities. For me it was somewhat back down memory lane. Enjoy, I did!

    Clean Teen Romance: Brooklyn wasn¿t the fun girl or the popular

    Clean Teen Romance:

    Brooklyn wasn’t the fun girl or the popular girl. She was the plain girl. The girl no one noticed. However now was the best time for 17 year old Brooklyn to change her image. She was not only starting a new school she was also moving countries. The shy awkward Brooklyn was gone. Now she was flirty, fun Brook.

    This is a lovely fun teen romance suitable for young teens. I loved that the girls were all nice to each other and immediately accepted Brooklyn into their circle. Even in a girls boarding school they still managed to have some fun and even wrangle a few sneaky meet-ups with the boys at night. I am sure a lot of young girls will relate to Brooklyn. (Who wouldn’t want to start all over again with a new school and new image?)
    I would recommend this novel to any teenage girl that enjoys fun, light reads.
    Taking the Reins is the first novel in The Rosewoods series.
