"Love, Lexi" by Sherry Kyle

About this book:

  “What is a girl to do when her rival wants to nab the attention of the one boy she's liked since he shared his peanut butter sandwich with her in the first grade? Love, Lexi follows seventh grader Alexis Dawn Cooper (Lexi) as she navigates middle school and being a middle child. But this is no ordinary middle-school novel. Love, Lexi is a unique combination of a fictional story combined with a devotional and journal to allow readers to watch Lexi learn to seek God first above all else, while writing their own letters to God. Love, Lexi draws young people into Lexi's life as they contemplate their own place in God's eyes.”

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ to a full star for those in Public or Private School}
This is a very pre-teen-ish book with Lexi’s writing style about her problems at school and with her siblings, but it was also very cute. I’m personally giving this book three stars mainly because of the couple of chapters where Lexi was fangirling over a Christian boy band; I was so tickled at that for some odd reason! The book had a unique layout (similar to a devotional but had a fiction story with it) and I also thought it was fun that the text color was pink. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
