"Asking for Trouble" by Sandra Byrd

About this book:

  “When her family moves to London, 15-year-old Savvy Smith has to make her way in a new school and a new country. She just knows the school newspaper is the right place for her, but she doesn't have the required experience, and the cute editor-in-chief isn't looking for someone to train. She has to come up with a way to prove herself and nab the one available position on the newspaper staff at Wexburg Academy.

 Series: Book #1 in the “London Confidential” series. (Here’s more about this series:
London Confidential is a new series where British fashion, friendships, and guys collide, and where an all-American girl learns to love life and live out her faith.) {I have read all four in this series, but that was before I started reviewing. ;) }  

Spiritual Content- Scriptures are quoted & Prayers are said; Savvy and her family try out different churches.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘blimey’, a ‘blooming’ and a ‘swanky’.

Sexual Content- Savvy calls a guy “super cute” and has his picture as her screen saver (she does kiss it a couple of times, but removes it near the end of the book); A couple of flirty winks and who’s-dating-whos and who-likes-who.

My personal Rating-

Like I pointed out in the Series info, I have read this series before (way before I started reviewing) and enjoyed them. But just two notes about this series/book #1: Savvy is a T*ylor Sw*ft fan, and plays some of her music (but none is written) and many reviews of this book on Goodreads slam this book for not being “accurate”  about people in London; so if you’re from there—read with caution! I’ve enjoyed this series, and am looking forward to rereading all of them again. :)


See y'all on Wednesday for another review! :)

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
