The romance in this book? It's been a very, very long time since a book has pissed me off this badly. Which leads me to another really well-written aspect of the book - all of the drama that goes with winning the lottery. It just sounds fake and ridiculous. Thank you for making your books a tiny bit more diverse, Kasie. Me not happy about that. Terrible, horrible, awful, not good, very bad. I Like You, By Your Side, and now this book - and sadly this has been my least favorite.
I get it, but it doesn't mean I don't get extremely frustrated reading about one poor decision after another. Please do not alter, distribute or sell it without the consent of Floridian Weddings. Maddie has her choice of colleges and with her windfall, she can pay for whichever college she wants. The mix of conflict threaded throughout the story shifted from family and friends, to focus heavily on finances. Her parents fight because her dad is unmotivated and her mom doesn't seem to stand up for herself. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket.
Another great aspect of this story is the big theme of family. Then she got how naive she was and she just turned into a bitch. Maddie went from invisible to the popular girl at school and everything seemed to become quite financially irresponsible. Usually with Kasie West, even though I'm not really into the story, or the characters, I fly through the book nonetheless, because it's just so easy to read, you'd do anything not only not to stop readin I am dying inside. There's a significant lack of girl hate and slutshaming!! I pulled out my phone while heading toward the library and typed into a group text: Anyone available for actual eating today? They are all very competitive, have passion for tennis, and enjoy a good challenge. I liked this book but didn't love it. Suddenly Maddie becomes the most popular girl in school and everyone wants something from her, but she's too naive to tell who's taking Release date: July 25, 2017 Maddie's spent most of her life focusing on working really hard in school so she can get enough scholarships to pay for college.
Well, nothing like that happened in the present case. She and her brother have a fun camaraderie, despite her brother being terrible with responsibility and money. That is why I found it so hard to relate with her throwing away her newfound money on useless things. All part of the plan, Johnny now leaves for the Ghost Zone finally reunited with Kitty, but Danny destroys the Fenton gadget he wired to his bike. Before I start complaining, just a heads up that on my profile it mentions that my reviews are all a mess and that 100% applies to this one as well.
While this felt authentic, it could be tiring at times. And most of the book is her shopping or talking about money which in itself was weirdly uncomfortable. Her honors and awards speak volumes about the success of her clients. Sadly this won't be my new favorite book of West's. Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo.
But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. She makes a friend pact with two of her best friends to stay focused in school and not let a boy get in the way. This is going to be wonderful, just like West's other six books books I have not read By Your Side yet. Seth was also a really one-dimensional character, too. Terrible, horrible, awful, not good, very bad. How would I describe this book in words? I love that the main character, Maddie and her friends are a bunch of nerds.
He always wins tons of money at our poker games. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. He is pretty much the only thing going right with this book. When they first started hanging out they realized tennis was not the only passion they had in common but also realized they shared a passion for fashion. After three of her own tricks materialize, Mira finds herself promoted to the perfect job, dating the perfect man, and living in the perfect home. Once I mixed it up, I fell in love with the fresh, spring-like, easy-drinking taste, but I wanted something with a brighter green color to go with our color palette. West introduces a vibrant cast full of humor and charm.
Yes, I've got the winning touch Suddenly, I'm dangerous Yes I'm lucky, Yes I'm lucky Yes I'm lucky, yes I'm lucky Yes I'm lucky, yes I'm lucky Lucky with the ladies Thank God for the ladies Otherwise, I'd go, I'd go crazy How about a line of credit For say, ten thousand dollars? But she doesn't notice because she's too madly in love with this anteater that Kasie West does a really good job at not getting the reader emotionally invested in. West introduces a vibrant cast full of humor and charm. A kid in front of me was having a debate with his mother. Maybe you should do that, Seth, instead of mentally cursing them. The two books that The Magic Kasie West published this year have got next to no magic. Let's talk about love interest, shall we? She had a brown paper bag of food next to her and her books spread out open in front of her. But it's New Years Eve and you are waiting for the year to change over, which is a lie.
