Book Review: Limos, Lattes & My Life on the Fringe
At the beginning of the book, we know one thing for sure -- Tyler's a thinker. You've got people who have thinking as a preference -- and you've got feelers.
Tyler, like I said, is a thinker. She analyzes everything. This girl can sort it through in her brain and leave it at then. Problem solved.
But then the Tyler meets the new girl -- same time, actually, that she's nominated for Prom Queen -- as a joke.
And that's when everything really does begin to change. In Tyler's life, and everyone else's.
The beginning of the book, for me, went a teeny little bit slow -- but as I turned the pages, the story began to grab me. A whole lot. Actually, that sounds familiar, doesn't it? That's what the leather-covered RL book does.
My favourite part about Nancy Rue's books are her lines. I mean, they make me smile. They make me giggle. Some might even make me laugh-out-loud -- and then read the same line again, so I can laugh all over. The random things that most people wouldn't even write down -- Nancy does, and for me it's half the story. They're the things I remember, one of the things that make Nancy's books different and special.
Out of all four books, I could probably relate the most to Tyler. I'm not sure why. We don't sound all that alike, really -- I have no idea why. But I feel like I understand her more than, say, Bryn or Cassidy or Jess.
I learned some things, too. Even when it seems like nobody in the world even care's about what you're doing -- Jesus does. Sometimes those little details never seem to work out, when we're out here in the rain by ourselves. But if we allow Jesus to hold an umbrella over our heads, he'll help us work it out.
This book was so kindly given to me by Zonderkidz, and you'll be able to get -- or find, thanks to the awesome "Pass it On" campaign -- in April or May. Put it on the calender -- you don't want to miss this one.
Oh, and here's a piece of advice I think we all need to hear, every once in a while.
"When everything's unclear and you can't see what's happening.. climb a tree."
That's what I learned from Limos, Lattes & My Life on the Fringe.
