The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder

Thanks again to NetGalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for allowing to read this excellent book!

The Lipstick Laws are sealed with a Kiss…

Compared to the queen of Penford High School, Britney Taylor, April Bowers might as well not exist…

But when, on the first day back Britney invites April to join her at lunch, April’s popularity skyrockets. And even though she is warned by her best friend who has been a victim to Britney’s torture, to avoid Britney and her backstabbing ways, the call of popularity is too much to resist…

April hangs onto the small thread of hope that she may become popular even if that means she must endure the manipulative and arrogant ways of Britney. And when she’s finally invited to officially join the group she must agree to the laws, The Lipstick Laws, created by Britney, that consist of 7 unbreakable rules.

But popularity always comes with a price, the question is: Can April afford it?

The Lipstick Laws is a quick and easy read that anyone can enjoy. It’s funny with enough action and drama to keep you from putting the book down. The character April’s life is relatable to many teens out there, many suffer from the bullying of “popular” groups or people or they succumb to the call of popularity and the price with it.

April goes through a huge emotional journey with ups and downs; the good thing is that she learns that you can always rise back up from a down, even when the odds look bad. She also discovers that sometimes you’ve got to let issues go, and not always be out for revenge. And even when horrible acts have been inflicted upon her, April learns that she should stop and think about the consequences, not just to her or Britney, but to those that are around them, for they too will be affected…
