Book Review: For Keeps by Natasha Friend
Although the story is somewhat predictable, I couldn't put this book down! I wanted to know how Josie and her mom were going to work out the news that Josie's paternal grandparents, who don't know of her existence, moved back into town. I wanted to know if Josie was going to let the gorgeous Riggs be her boyfriend, and I really wanted to see what trouble her best friend Liv might have. The warm and realistic characters and exciting connections between them kept me up late reading. This realistic young adult novel is great for 9th-11th grade girls.
