Overview

The Lip Gloss Chronicles explores the life of three sassy and hip urban high school freshmen who are high on fashion and magnets for drama. Britney Franklin, Jasmine McNeil, and Sierra Sanchez, daughters of Dallas, Texas socialites met in their private grammar school, and now they are ready to tackle their freshman year in a new public high school as a team.

The girls soon realize that life at Plano High School is far different from their private junior high. From the moment they step on the school campus, drama awaits them in the form of two people—Dylan "DJ" Johnson and Tanisha Ross. The girls are smitten with DJ's good looks and good manners. Tanisha is jealous of the attention that DJ shows to these freshman girls, and threatens to harm them physically if they don't back off. Though they don't bow to her demands, they are still intimidated by Tanisha, who quickly becomes a thorn in their side with her outlandish behavior.

The Diva's Creed (All for one, one for all; never let the other fall) is soon tested when Jasmine and Sierra both fall head over heels in love with DJ. Drama ensues, fights break out, and trust is tested. Will the trio be able to hold their friendship together, or will they let a boy come between them?

    The ultimate test? Never dish on the same guy as your best friend. You know nothing good can come of it.

    It's the start of freshman year, and for some reason, Britney, Jasmine, and Sierra find themselves thrust into life at a public high school. The three girls have been attending private school since they were little, but all of their parents have decided they need to experience the public system now that they're starting high school.

    The girls know they're hip and all that, but when an older boy, DJ, starts showing interest in not just one of them, but two, attitudes erupt and tempers flare. Britney can see that DJ is a player, but Sierra and Jasmine are at each other constantly trying to gain DJ's attention. Britney is caught in the middle and doesn't know what to do. Then, Britney catches Marcus' eye. Marcus is DJ's cousin. He doesn't seem to be the player that DJ is, but can Britney trust him?

    As you can imagine, girl drama abounds in THE ULTIMATE TEST, the first volume in THE LIP GLOSS CHRONICLES. Britney has a great head on her shoulders and is a good role model for young girls reading this book. She's stuck in a situation that happens all the time in any school, urban or not. It takes a tough situation to make the girls come to their senses and realize that friends should always come before boys.

    THE ULTIMATE TEST is a fast read, but very relevant to teen life today. Except for some confusion over some of the city slang used in the book, this is a new series that is bound to please anyone that gives it a go.
