The Aristobrats

The Aristobrats - Jennifer Solow I promised Jennifer that I would review this months ago, and I am finally following through. Sorry for taking so long, Jennifer!I'm going to be the first to say that I am not the world's best reviewer. I used to have a "book review blog" years ago, way before they became popular, and I didn't keep up with it because I realized it's not my strength. (Get me blogging about Disney World, on the other hand....) Still, I am going to give it my best shot.At first glance, it may seem that The Aristobrats is another one of those "bitch-lit" stories like Gossip Girl or The Clique. (And don't get me wrong, I LIKE the few Gossip Girl books I've read a lot.) I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't. The characters are warm and fun to read about. They're not perfect, but that's OK.I loved Parker's interactions with her mom. I was laughing out loud at a lot of it. They were hilarious. But my favorite story was Ikea's. YAY person of color!! And YAY person of color who struggled with things that I did when I was younger as far as fitting in, trying to be like the other girls. Her story was dear to me. I don't want to give away spoilers, but she is so strong. I was pumping my fist and yelling 'you go girl' at many points!I loved that this book wasn't overly positive or negative. It just was. And that was refreshing. :)
