Book review, "Addison Blakely-- Confessions of a PK"

Remember the interview with Betsy St. Amant? Well, she sent me her book, "Addison Blakely-- Confessions of a PK", and let me be bold.

I loved it.

So, I read it all in about 7 hours (I kept getting distracted, then I fell asleep). My rating for it? 5.0 stars. I rarely give 5 stars to anything, so you know I loved it. This is an ideal book for teens everywhere. And especially for PK's (Preacher Kids). I fell in love with this book after the first page, and I felt like I could connect with Addison. She was going through a lot of troubles, many of them the average teen faces everyday. Let's just say I felt like I KNEW Addison. There were a few small twists, enough to keep you reading. I didn't want to put this book down.
I felt depressed when it ended. I had grown to love Addison and all the crazy, imperfect characters in the book. It felt like I was saying goodbye to a best friend or  loved one. Ms. Betsy wrote this flawlessly (If that's not a word, it is now ;). No, I'm not exaggerating or trying to flatter anyone. I always state my true opinion.
My favorite character would be a tie between Addison (The main character) and Marta (Addison's friend). Their bond was so visible, as if I were there, or as if I were one of them.
Do you know a teenager or just looking for a read to bring you back to the High School days? Buy this.
There is tons of Romance, Drama, Mocha's, Gummi Bears, and Lemon Drops (Two of my favorite candies!). So embark with Addison, on a journey of love, betrayal, religion, friendships, and much more!

 The back of the book: "Sixteen-year-old Addison Blakely has tireless played the role of PK—preacher’s kid—her entire life. But after Wes Keegan revs his motorcycle into town and into her heart, Addison begins to wonder how much of her faith is her own and how much has been handed to her. She isn’t so sure she wants to be the good girl anymore. Join Addison Blakely as she attempts to separate love from lust, facts from faith, and keep her head above water in her murky, fishbowl existence."

    1. I'm the one who's honored. :) I was so excited to be able to read and review a book from someone that I have always loved to read.
