It's a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison

Genre: YA-Fiction

Author Site:

First Line: “I’ve heard stories about supermodels that were discovered while shopping at the mall.”

One Word Review: Entertaining

Summary: “It’s too bad they don’t give out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, because I could graduate with honors in that subject. No really. Since I’ve worked there, I’ve become an expert on all things shopping-related. For example, I can tell you right off who to distrust at the mall: 1) Skinny people who work at Cinnabon. I mean, if they’re not eating the stuff they sell, how good can it be? 2) The salesladies at department store makeup counters. No matter what they tell you, buying all that lip gloss will not make you look like the pouty models in the store posters. 3) And most importantly—my best friend’s boyfriend, Bryant, who showed up at the food court with a mysterious blonde draped on his arm. Yeah, I saw it, and yeah, I told my best friend all about it. You would think this would mean trouble for Bryant, but you would basically be wrong. Somehow, the evil boyfriend turned everything around, and now I’m the one who has to prove myself! But I will. Even if Bryant—and more importantly his best friend, Colton—keep trying to stop me.” -GoodReads

My Review: So, this is my third Rallison novel and I’m quickly becoming a fan. She writes fun, original stories that keep you entertained throughout the book. I like the jokes she mixes in and I find myself smiling a lot while I’m reading. The romance between her characters is always fun and she writes leading men very well. I loved Colton! He totally frustrated me at times, but he was a great lead. Charlotte on the other hand wasn’t my favorite. I guess since I just read about Giovanna (How to take the Ex out of Ex-Boyfriend) who was so sweet and likable, I was expecting Charlotte to be the same way. Charlotte really did have a chip on her shoulder and really knows how to hold a grudge. She is really passionate about what she believes in and doesn’t always go about things in the best manner. Charlotte did grow on me and by the end I was a fan. This was a fun read, would recommend it to anyone who enjoys teen-lit.
