The New Girl by Tracie Puckett


I downloaded this book during an ebook sale quite a while ago and just now got around to reading it. I was not compensated for this review in any way.

Steph is not your average girl. She’s been in 11 different schools and she’s only 17. Also, her real name is Abcdef Ghijk. Her mom is a bit of a free spirit who packs them up and moves whenever she feels like it, or for a promise of a better life. This time though, her mom promises that they are going to stay in Webster Grove: she’s met a good man this time.

Steph finds it hard to believe, but makes the best of it, making new friends and signing up for the school play designing costumes. It doesn’t hurt that her hunky young teacher is also running the play.

It’s a bit of a surprise when she finally meets her mom’s boyfriend, and he brings his little brother along: Alex Rivera, aka Steph’s teacher.

I really liked this book, it was short and sweet, with less than 200 pages. The teacher-student dynamic was also done very well, not lust-filled, but making a personal connection. Alex can immediately see she has issues with her home life and wants to make things better. They also never cross any inappropriate boundaries either, it’s just sweet. Their connection is obvious, but they’re not going to make a move at this time.

There are a number of books in this series, and like the last book I read, it doesn’t feel like a total cash grab. Their saga could be one long book, but I do like a nice short book to read for once. I won’t be purchasing the other books at this time, but I’m definitely interested in reading them in the future.
