Sixteen-year-old A.J. Stewart, born and raised in backwoods Tennessee, loves nothing more than repairing broken cars with her father and hanging out with her brothers and their friends. Not far away in the busy city of Nashville, Kate Kelly is always dressed in the latest fashion, wearing clothes from her mother’s boutique and jetting around the world with her father.
When A.J. starts going to the school Kate attends, they instantly dislike each other. But as the year progresses, Kate’s brother Val is drawn to A.J., and when prom comes around, he asks her to be his date—much to his sister’s displeasure.
The following summer at camp, the two girls continue their dislike of each other, until a surprising moment of openness when A.J. shares her faith with Kate. As their bond grows, they discover that they share an inner resolve to live life as God intended, and to live it in their own individual and original ways.
In Life Just Got Real Sadie Robertson inspires teens to find the value God has placed inside us all and to live with confidence and purpose in a very complicated world.
Life Just Got Real is not at all what I expected. It’s much better!
Sadie Robertson is an excellent writer. Life Just Got Real is interesting, funny, and real. It’s probably the best YA Christian novel I’ve read, ever.
Life Just Got Real is an accurate picture of the real life of a teen girl. Well, a sheltered teen girl. It’s about time someone wrote a book featuring these girls, the lives they live, and the struggles they have. Thank you Sadie!
