Review of Me, Just Different!

Me, Just Different is book one in the Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt by Stephanie Morrill. One night changes everything for Skylar Hoyt. She has lived in the illusion of popularity and the cliche high school life, but her life suddenly crumbles as she realizes that changes need to be made for the better in her life. However, her parent's marriage is crumbling and her sister has persuaded Skylar to keep quiet about a huge secret. With tensions mounting between Skylar and her boyfriend and the quirky guy down the street, Skylar does her best to keep her famous cool attitude and pull it all together. But is her world falling apart to quickly?

The author writes with a realistic voice that pulls a reader into the story. I was literally turning the pages to see what would happen next. The pacing is absolutely perfect, I felt neither rushed or bored anywhere in this story. The heart of the characters is real and all work beautifully in this story. The situation that Skylar is in is not unlike what I know many teen girls go through every day. This book shows the power of faith, and I really appreciate that.

Some things to be aware of is that the world Skylar leaves does have some problems. These elements are all portrayed as wrong, and some elements include drugs, alcohol, smoking, and teen pregnancy.

I recommend this book to girls in their late teens.

I loved this book, and Steph's two others. They are really popular in my church's youth group, and my daughter has the whole set.
