Book Review: The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt Series by Stephanie Morrill

These were fabulous books. It’s a trilogy and the three books are (in order):

Me, Just Different (from the back cover):

Skylar Hoyt is a girl who seems to have it all–she’s pretty, popular, and has a great-looking boyfriend. Her senior year should be the best one yet. But a horrible experience at a summer party has changed everything. Now she’s vowing to make better choices, including going back to church. But as Skylar tries to gain new perspective on life, the world as she knows it begins to fall apart. 

Her parents are constantly fighting. Her younger sister has a big secret that Skylar is forced to keep. The guy she’s dating is annoyingly jealous. And the new guy down the street is just plain annoying. In the midst of the chaos, Skylar starts to wonder who her real friends are and, even more importantly, who she is.

Out with the In Crowd (from the back cover):

Skylar Hoyt may have vowed to change her partying ways, but it’s not so easy to change her friends. Even though the old Skylar is gone, she’s still not sure who this new Skylar really is. Add to that two parents battling for her loyalty, a younger sister struggling with a crisis pregnancy, and a new boyfriend wishing for more of her time, and Skylar feels like she can’t win. After all, how do you choose favorites among the people you love most?

So Over It (from the back cover):

Senior year is over and Skylar Hoyt is ready to forgive and forget. Or at least forget. She wants a fresh start where people don’t know about her past or her dysfunctional family. A place where she won’t run into her ex-boyfriend every time she leaves the house. When she gets the opportunity to spend the summer in Hawaii with her grandparents, Skylar jumps at the chance to get out of town. But will she truly be able to leave her old life behind? And will she be strong enough to rise above the gossip and live the life God wants?

All three are amazing books!!! I would not recommend anyone under thirteen reading these. They deal with some teen issues that may not be appropriate for tweens.

  1. Wow. Those look really really good! Thanks for posting!

    So about your prize… Oh no! That is terrible and I’m so sorry! 😦 I can’t give you the same earrings because I don’t think Hannah has the same earrings, but I will get another pair of earrings and send them to you so that you can get a prize after all! It could be a couple weeks just warning you, but yes I will be sending you a different pair! 🙂

    So sorry about that!
