This is the second (of three) books about Hudson, Carina and Lizzie. This book focuses on Carina, who is the daughter of a billionaire. Her father essentially cuts her off (he’s not a jerk; Carina totally deserves it) and so she has to adjust to living in Manhattan with a cell phone from the 90s, a MetroCard and $20 a week. To fund a skiing trip with a crush, she tells a few white lies and gets a job as a party planner. So except for the fact that she has no experience, super awesome!
I love this series. I think I even prefer it to the first book. I love books about friendship (and this one is Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants-esque, only without the altering viewpoints within the book) and I love transformation/redemption stories. Put them together (as this one does) and I am a very hapy Kelly.
So take this trip with Carina and see how she goes from being privileged and spoiled to being a much better and nicer person. You’ll see a lot of the plot twists coming, but the ride’s a fun one.
