Queen of Secrets
Fifteen-year-old Essie Green cannot believe her luck when Austin King asks her out. He is the captain of the football team and the hottest guy at Pershing High School. Unfortunately, as their relationship heats up, so does a rivalry between Austin’s best friend Harrison and Essie’s estranged cousin Micah, an observant Jew. Essie is forced to decide where her loyalties lie. With a family member she barely knows, or the boy she’s beginning to love?
I don't know what I was expecting with Queen of Secrets, but it sure wasn't this, and that's a good thing. It was a very cute, relatable story with lovable characters.
Essie was a sweet, kind-hearted character. Through the book she did make mistakes, but her intentions were good. She grew up so much through the book. When I was starting the book, I was expecting her to be like the cheerleaders in all the other books and stories, but she wasn't at all. She proved to be good-natured through and through.
This was such a cute story about growing up, starting high school, defending your family and falling in love.
