Things seem to be going well in Landry Albright’s world—she’s getting invited to be on local talk shows to talk about her modeling career, her best friends have her back, and her boyfriend Vladi has becoming someone she can truly count on…and then everything changes.
Suddenly it seems like most of the girls in school are into hanging out at a new teen dance club, while Landry just wants to spend her weekends playing video games and baking cup-cakes at sleepovers. Then, Yasmin McCarty, the most popular girl in school, starts to come between Landry’s friendship with her best friend Ashanti. Things take a turn when Yasmin tells Vladi that Landry is interested in another boy. Can Landry get her relationships with Ashanti and Vladi back or will she be left behind?
From the moment I saw the cover of the book, the title “Landry in Like” stuck with me. It’s a straightforward title that has a flair about it that you remember long after reading it.
As I started reading, the same applied to the narrative and the story itself. Vivid characters, strong storytelling and an interesting premise. All factors that took me deeper and deeper into the book up to the very end.
“Landry in Like” is book 3 of Landry’s True Colors Series and in it we follow Landry Albright as she is settling into her modeling career. All is going well for her with her friends and relationship until the ties with her best friend are put to test as Yasmin McCarty, the most popular girl in school, comes between them. To make matters worse, she also feeds Landry’s boyfriend, Vladi, information that will put that relationship to the test as well.
From then on, Landry has to struggle with many of the issues that teens face, not only now but also in the past, where simple rumors, jealousy and power struggles can make anyone’s life miserable. Ultimately, it is a great insight into fighting for what you believe in.
