The Naughty List by Suzanne Young (Young Adult)

The Naughty List (The Naughty List, #1) The Naughty List by Suzanne Young
Publisher: Razorbill
Publish Date: February 4, 2010
Paperback, 272 pages

My rating: 4.0/5.0

My Review:

The Naughty List is really what young adult fiction is all about, just simple fun with some meaning but not too deep or too shallow - it's just right and leaves you feeling good when you finish it. After reading a lot of books full of meaning and dealing with heavy subjects, it was very refreshing to read The Naughty List.

Centering around cheerleader friends who make up the Smitten Kittens, not only are they cheerleaders, but they are also girls undercover who find out whether your boyfriend is cheating on you are not. Sweet girl cheerleaders by day and stealthy girls by night, these aren't your average everyday cheerleaders. Tessa is a particularly strong female character but she still has insecurities. Through the book her relationship with Aiden seems on the up and up but with a few seeds of doubt planted will Tessa still trust Aiden. And where does she draw the line about whether finding out about cheaters really helps the girls or hurts more.

The Naughty List is a fun quick read with characters that develop before your eyes. The first in a series, I look forward to learning more about some of the other Smitten Kittens and seeing more of Tessa and finding out what happens in her life.

About the Book:
As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn’t enough responsibility!

Tessa Crimson’s the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad–turned–spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn’t be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!

When Tessa’s own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will Tessa’s sneaky ways end in catastrophe?

The Naughty List. Is your boyfriend on it?

Weekend Wondering + Giveaway - What Review do you want to see

Still no topic to ramble on - sorry.  My grandmother is going down hill and we are expecting the call at any time.  I will greatly miss her.  My mom has encouraged me to stay home and just come up for the funeral and to remember my "Ma" as she was.  So that is what I am doing.  As soon as we get the call and know the plans we will head out of here and drive 5 hours with a 4 and 9 year old.
