Except for Nichole's response to it, the modeling part ends up being predictable. Her friend Courtney thinks this chance at modeling is laughable and takes every chance she can to tell her. Courtney is always canceling events with Nichole to be with Jeff who she's been spending more and more time with. Jenna is delighted in having her own bedroom.
She's feeling a bit jealous at the attention Peter seems to be giving someone else. Jesse has been preoccupied and doing less than stellar in football. Where before he was looked upon as its hero, now he's humiliated.
Leah has been losing sleep over mysterious Miguel and what he could be keeping from her. What is evident in this series is that some of the characters are Christian while others are not. That makes it true-to-life. What makes it less than true-to-life is the lack of advances between the sexes which is so apparent today. While it is refreshing to read books without sex scenes, one would have to wonder at the perfectness of the goody-goody characters and their ability to restrain themselves. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I purchased the first book in this series for my daughter to try out.
I had not come across it before but decided to give it a shot especially since the first one was only 2.
MY daughter loved it. She is now addicted and has just completed the 6th in the series. According to her the characters are very interesting and the stories are great. In my opinion though this is now getting too expensive.

There are 20 books in the series 4. Would be good if they could offer 4 or 5 books together for a bargain price or some such thing. OR have a special every now and then. Its not like there is much of a choice of decent books to choose from for 'tween' girls. If you like teen drama or grew up reading it this is the book for you. Laura Peyton Roberts knows the lives of teenagers. I really liked reading about this group of young people.
I sure wish someone could have made a tv series out of it. The series is great, and the characters are easy to relate to. I am a minister and I find the books are easy to read. I usually read them on my breaks at work and at the end of the day, they are hard to put down. After a cheerleading stunt goes wrong, Melanie is rushed to the hospital. She wakes up after a while and is constantly seeming to think she likes Peter.
Jenna finally has her own room away from Maggie! She starts to get slightly jealous of Peter and Melanie when the two visit Melanie's house and is shocked to find Caitlin, her older sister, upset. Nicole arrives with Courtney, Leah and Melanie for the modeling contest in St. Someone mistakes Leah for a contestant and Nicole begs Leah to enter, who agrees. Nicole is scared to death on stage but Leah could barely have cared less--and wins the contest because of it.
One person found this helpful. A clean-cut but sadly pretty-boring novel, featuring a bunch of teenagers that are hard to get attached to. The most exciting thing that happens is that one of the guys becomes a little infatuated with a girl when he discovers how beautiful she looks with a pumpkin on top of her head. Plus a girl named Leah wins a modelling competition. Thank you so much for these awesome books!
I thought no one understood what I was feeling. I got these books as a present and it got me back on my feet. These characters lived my life.

Is her imagination playing tricks on her, or is Melanie not as alone as she thinks? Of course Nicole is concerned about her so-called friend, but she has a modeling contest to worry about. Especially now that Jesse has begun to take her seriously! Jenna finally has a room she can call her own!
She loves its privacy, its spaciousness.
But will her new surroundings cause hurt feelings between Jenna and her closer-than-close sisters? Halloween is around the corner, and Eight Prime is putting in a lot of hours working on a spooky haunted house fund-raiser. That makes it true-to-life. What makes it less than true-to-life is the lack of advances between the sexes which is so apparent today. While it is refreshing to read books without sex scenes, one would have to wonder at the perfectness of the goody-goody characters and their ability to restrain themselves. This book is one of those teen books that is definitely written for teens and teens only.
