Book Review: It's a Mall World After All
Confession: One of my favorite author's is Janette Rallison (who has also written under the pen name Sierra St. James). So although It's a Mall World After All is definitely a teen/tween novel, I had a lot of fun reading it. Rallison has such a great sense of humor and comedy in her writing style. I often find myself laughing out loud when reading her books--and this one was no exception.
If they gave out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, Charlotte could graduate with honors. Ever since she got a job as a perfume spritzer, she’s become an expert on all things shopping related—oh and she’s getting really good at spying on her classmates who hang out there. What she hasn’t mastered is the art of convincing her best friend Brianna dump her boyfriend Bryant, after Charlotte catches him flirting with a mysterious, blond-haired stick figure. Now Brianna is taking his side! Charlotte must prove who is right, once and for all, and that means catching Bryant in the act. This is where her mall roaming skills will come in handy. Perfume anyone?
I would definitely recommend this book, especially to someone looking for a fun, clean read. It was both uplifting and charming.
