Lux Lawson’s temper and antics have taken their toll on her mother and she is putting her foot down. Lux must live with her father where rules and structure will be enforced. She gets accepted into a prestigious arts school and soon meets Noelle, Tobyn and Micah. They are known as the Flyy Girls and Lux is interested.
This YA contemporary book is about a young girl’s anger and need for control. Lux’s character is very relatable. She is a typical teen who is angry about her parents not being together and believing they do not understand her. Lux must adjust to another school, her stepmother and little sister who cries all the time. I was thinking the Flyy Girls where a bad influence on Lux, but when she does not tell the truth to her father or her new friends, I was sure Lux needed to change. It was fun seeing her evolve throughout the story.
It deals with divorce, anger, learning from bad behaviors and building friendships, which is situations teens are dealing with today. This is a great book for middle grade and high schoolers. I will read the other books in this series.
I received this book via NetGalley for review purposes only.
