This is the third book in this series and is my favorite one so far! Landry is in eighth grade, trying to figure out where she fits in and feeling nervous about starting high school next year. She has "friends" who belittle her modeling career and will stab her in the back if it helps them get ahead. The popular girl in school, Yasmin, doesn't like her at all and has a crush on her boyfriend. Yasmin comes between Landry and her best friend, Ashanti, and also her boyfriend, Vladi.What I like is that Landry is somewhat affected by what happens but doesn't go overboard in the drama department. She finds a way to cope with what's happening without losing herself in the process. She's not looking to grow old too soon. Some of her friends want to hang out at a new teen dance club but Landry would rather hang out with them in a more casual setting, where they can play video games and bake cupcakes. The author does a great job writing an authentic story while showing how a young girl can handle herself in some difficult situations. I'm enjoying Landry's journey and hope there will be more to come!I received a copy from the author for an honest review. My opinion is 100% my own.Mel's Shelves
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.
Landry's having a boyfriend, her modeling career is going pretty well and she has great friends. She's happy with the way things are, but they can't remain like that forever. Her world keeps changing. While she loves spending time at home her friends want to go to a teen dance club, a place that scares Landry. She doesn't like the noise and she doesn't feel comfortable there. Some of her best friends love going and then her best friend starts to hang out with other people. Unfortunately one of them doesn't like Landry at all and she makes life very difficult. Somehow Landry keeps getting into situations where she has to defend herself for things she didn't do. Can she make people see the truth?Landry in Like is another great story in the Landry's True Colors series by Krysten Lindsay Hager. I love Landry. She's sweet, she stands for what she believes in and she's honest. Sometimes she stumbles through life, which makes her realistic and approachable. It's what I like best about her. Landry's growing up and she's doing that in a really nice way. I love reading about her boyfriend, her friends and the things she likes to do.Krysten Lindsay Hager knows how to write a story from the point of view of a fourteen-year-old. Her writing is realistic and it feels genuine. Landry matures and therefore Krysten Lindsay Hager's writing is more mature as well. I admire how she manages to match her writing with what she writes about. Reading about Landry brings back a lot of memories from my own childhood and I think it's great that she teaches girls that age some valuable lessons without making the story too obvious or moralistic. Landry in Like deals with a lot of different topics. Some light and fun and some a bit more heavy. I loved the balance and enjoyed reading the story very much. I think the Landry's True Colors series is great and highly recommend it.
Once again, I'm amazed at Ms. Hager's ability to channel my inner teen. I often view life, especially the past, with rose colored glasses and the hard times don't seem quite as bad as they were. This story, and series actually, takes me back to my 8th grade year and accurately conveys many of the feelings, emotions, and actions taken by average girls that age--even me! Landry is a likable character, trying to figure out who she is and who her true friends are. She handles the drama fairly well, considering that she has friends who get mad at her for no reason (or for something trivial), mean girls attacking her, a crush and all the drama that goes with that, and a fledgling modeling career. Girls can be so catty and their jealousy is crazy. I've loved Landry's journey and watching her blossom. Friendships are really tested at this age and life seems to revolve around acceptance by peers. I love the way Ms. Hager develops the other characters. They each seem to have one foot in childhood and one foot in adulthood and they're all trying to forge their way through. From the outside, looking in, it's easy to see the decisions these teens should be making and the ways they should be reaching out or standing up for their friends, but at the same time, it's also easy to see why they do and say what they do. Maybe it's just that I've lived through it and it makes sense to me. It's amazing how each one is insecure about herself in different ways. The emotion is definitely abounding in this one!I'm not sure how many books will entail Landry's story, but I'm eager to see what happens next and to watch her grow up some more.Content: middle school/high school drama; mild romance. Clean!!*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
This clean middle - high school drama has a little romance and is book 3 in the Landry's True Color series.vauthorr Krysten Hager has done a great job writing from the view point of a 14 year old and using Landry to demonstrate that you can be yourself and not have to always follow the in crowd. Will she lose her boyfriend and the friendship of her best friend to the most popular girl in school? This is a great read for any teen suffering peer pressure. I was given a copy for an honest review.
Hager is definitely in touch with the teen age group! This book took me right back to being a teen. I highly recommend this book for those in the young adult age group, and anyone else that likes YA fiction.
I RECIEVED THIS BOOK FROM THE AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. THIS DOES NOT AFFECT MY VIEWS OR OPINIONS IN ANY WAY.Landry in Like is an adorable book about friendship and first love.Summary from Goodreads: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.

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 out and left behind?Sorry I got to this review so late. In all honesty, I forgot I still had to write a review.I really liked Landry in this book. She was a sweet and kind teenager. I liked the way that she didn't always want to do what was popular. That is something you don't usually see, but that really happens.I thought that this book was pretty predictable. It seemed like the other books, but with different drama. However, in this tye of thing it kind of worked. It made it seem like real teenage problems. However, most teenagers seem to have more serious problems along with the trivial ones.This book could really help a tween or young teen learn how to act as they get older. It teaches about doing what you think is right, not letting little things get to you, and about how friends are very important along with family.Overall, this is a great book with great morals.
Landry is just a girl trying to figure out where she fits in with her group of friends. She's not really into the whole teen club scene. She would much rather hang out at home, read, or play the latest mystery game with her friend. When Landry's best friend start hanging out with a new group of friends, Landry fears she may be leaving her behind. On top of that, she has to navigate the uncharted waters of having her first boyfriend. I would have liked to see a bit more happening in the storyline, but overall this would be a great gift for that tween girl in your life that loves books about friendship, school, and coming of age!
This book will take you into flashback mode or a sneak peek of future depending how old you are.But, THIS , is exactly what you go through, what happens in school, when you're an 8th grader. The author has done an amazing job of portraying the characters and their feelings. I could relate to their thoughts and actions.Much like in reality , there is a lot of drama , gossip, misunderstanding and heart break.What the book may lack in story-line, it makes up with the great characters.Read as a standalone-recommended Received the book in exchange of an honest review
