Review #102: Barbie Girl- Heidi Acosta

Title: Barbie Girl
Author: Heidi Acosta
Pages: 189
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book completely blew me out of the water. It was so not what I was expecting. I figured this book would be about the popular girl from high school using the nerdy smart guy to pass school then them falling in love. For the most part I was wrong. I really enjoyed every aspect of this novel, it is a perfect YA contemporary romance. There were so many emotions shown through out this read. At times I felt physically sick to my stomach, others I was almost in tears, but mostly I just wanted the two main characters to get over themselves and get together. 
Barbie was such an unexpected character, you go in to the book thinking one thing about her, and change you mind to something else based on her actions, but then when you get her story you fall in love with the real her. She was so caring and didn't give a crap what others thought of her. I did feel bad for her because she did have a rough life but she was a,art enough to wait more for herself and her little brother. I have a love/ hat relationship with Dylan. Sometimes I loved him and other times he made me so mad that I hated him. He was just a poohead most of the time. He better redeem himself in book two. I also really liked Third. He seems like an awesome friend to have.
This was a great read and I look forward to continuing the series. I would recommend this book to all YA readers. Can't wait to see what happens next. 

P.S. I LOVE YOU HEIDI!!!!!! <3 you rock my socks!

About this author

Heidi Acosta was born on Long Island, New York. Moving around a lot when she was younger, she has lived in New York, Arizona, New York (again), Washington, Georgia, and Florida, in that order. Each place offered her something special, but she will always consider New York her home.
Heidi started writing as soon as she could spell. When she was three, Heidi’s mother gave her a copy of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods; thus beginning her lifelong love affair with literature.
Writing soon also became a form of therapy for Heidi, when she realized that no matter what was happening in her life, she could find emotional escape while writing. Some of her earliest stories featured her as a princess who explored new worlds with her horse Buttercup. If it sounds romantic, it wasn’t, there was no prince charming in those fairy lands (boys where yucky). 
Heidi now resides in Florida with her husband, very active daughter, one hyper Chihuahua, two sweet cats, and one very fat moody cat.
Barbie Girl is the first Novel of Heidi’s new, four-book, Baby Doll Series: Barbie Girl, Barbie World, Doll Face, and Southern Sugar.
