Jet Set by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman - BOOK REVIEW by KELLY N.

Jet Set by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman was one of the best chick lits that take place at a boarding school that I have ever read. Lucy Peterson is a normal teenage girl with brains and amazing tennis talent. When she gets to know some of the royals, she finds that they are just teenagers who were lucky enough to have rich/famous/royal parents. She even falls in love with Prince Oliver, second cousin of William and Harry.

Lucy goes to Van Pelt as an American, army brat, scholarship student in order to secure her future. When she gets there, the Diamonds, the ruling “It” group, decided to give Lucy a hard time. She befriends Sofia, and finds out that Sofia is an undercover reporter. In fits of anger, Lucy helps Sofia get pictures and scoops to sell to the press, but not without a guilty conscience. When Sofia is determined to go too far, Lucy refuses to help, and sabotages Sofia’s evidence. By the end of the book, Lucy has made more friends, including the Diamonds, who will stand by her side; she also has a chance to romance with Van Pelt’s most sought after guy: Oliver.

I think that Jet Set was very well written, and gives a positive outlook on boarding schools and rich kids. On a scale of 1-10, I would give this book a 10!
