Review: Savvy Girl by Lynn Messina

Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Chrissy Gibbons has landed her dream job - a summer internship at her favorite magazine, Savvy. Being an intern is hard work, but the job becomes a little more fun when Chrissy is befriended by her glamorous fashion editor who takes her to all the best parties. As the summer winds down, though, Chrissy realizes that in the whirlwind of parties and boys, she's been neglecting what could be her big break in the magazine business: an opportunity to compete against other interns to become Savvy's first teen columnist. Chrissy struggles to come up with a winning subject for her column - and in the process, she discovers what is most important to her.

Kritters Thoughts: A YA read that after completing I sit on the fence of whether I really enjoyed it or may be a little disappointed. One thought, I was confused the entire time as to the age of the character and the mishaps that she found herself in. I think her character could have been a hint older and I would have found it more believeable. But on the other side, I loved the storyline - a girl trying to tackle growing up and finding herself in the midst of an adult world, while trying to make the most of the moment of her lifetime.

I couldn't grasp the roles of her parents and their abilities to disregard her late night activities and behaviors that are well beyond her age group. Although, I fell in love with her best friend and the co workers that made up the majority of the story.

So to make it short and sweet, this was a cute read that I would pass onto my younger crowd of readers. I would say to those of my age group - a great light read in the middle of those deep reads.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Pages: 256
