Me, Just Different by Stephanie Morrill

Welcome to the world of Skylar Hoyt, a high school senior whose exotic Hawaiian looks have propelled her to the height of the "in" crowd, but who's no longer sure that's where she really fits. New friends, old friends, a reluctant romance, and a family crisis swirl around Skylar as she tries to keep it together and figure out who she really wants to be.

Debut novelist Stephanie Morrill opens her first young adult series with a compelling story about characters every teen will recognize and relate to. Morrill addresses real teen issues, like popularity, friendship, sexuality, and more, with grace and style.

My Review:
In her senior year of high school, Skylar loves the idea of being in love, but she does not necessarily love her boyfriend. She makes some poor choices and surrounds herself with some of the wrong crowd. Her group of friends are backbitters who don't know the meaning of loyalty.

This is a book about the complex problems teens face; the redeeming feature is how Skylar finds her way through the mess in her life. I recommend it for older teens.
