Outward Blonde Review...

Sixteen-year-old Lizzie Finkelstein is a hard-partying socialite who lives a charmed life with her mother in Manhattan. After a public drunken sexual escapade results in both an arrest and an embarrassing viral video online, Lizzie’s parents stage a late night intervention. Lizzie finds herself whisked away to Utah to learn a lesson or two about taking responsibility at Camp Smiley, a wilderness survival program for troubled kids.

Camp Smiley is a far cry from Lizzie’s high society life in New York. Without her stable of luxury hair/makeup items, her teacup Pomeranian, contact with the outside world or access to social media, Lizzie must face the harsh conditions of the outdoors. Grouped with troubled campers in which she’s certain she has nothing in common (except Jack, who’s pretty hot), Lizzie must now learn to dig her own toilet in the woods and build a fire by rubbing two sticks together before the camp will ever let her go back to her former existence. She has a choice: get with the program, or get out of there.



Outward Blonde is a unique and intense book.  It is a book about young kids who all show up at this camp for wayward kids.  But when you don’t think you belong there then what do you do?  You try to get out?
This was such a good book.  I can honestly say that I have never read anything like it before.  I was entranced by it.  Everything was excellently written and the authors writing style was fun and unique.  I definitely look forward to reading more books by this author because it is an excellent book.  I didn’t want it to end and would love to see all of these characters in a series.  There is so much more that could happen to them!
4.5 stars
