Book Review: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally
Suspended from her fancy boarding school, she is off to Hundred Oaks High, with less AP classes, no activities, and a pretty bad soccer team. She ditched the boyfriend, and the truth and hopes that even with letting her parents down, she can still rally and get into Yale. Of course, there is the small matter of her father's campaign to be re-elected as state Senator, and she is now a black mark against him.
Can she earn back her father's trust? Will she still get into Yale, even with the suspension? What about about her brother's friend Ezra who is on a break from Cornell, working construction?
It's no secret that I love books by Miranda Kenneally. I think they are fun reads, and full of high school (and college) drama. While you might not be the rich daughter of a state Senator, you might know what it feels like to disappoint your parents, or even hide to truth to protect a friend. Defending Taylor is a fun read that would be a good break from studying, class activities and even soccer.
I'll see you @ the library!
