I am so out of my league. Fancy parties, expensive cars, and a private school for the elite… It sounds like a dream. But everything is not as perfect as it seems on the outside. Here, the secrets are dirty, and the lies comes easy.
Welcome to my fab life.
Life often takes us by surprise. But my life just got a nuclear bomb dropped on it, with a note from my mother that simply says "good luck."----------

Mercy has created a stunning opening to her new series centering around Kihanna Foster. Excuse me, I mean Kihanna Evers. Kihanna has just learned that her father is the CEO of Staying Connected, which is basically the Facebook/Twitter of the real world. Now, she is being whisked away from her life as a "poor" person (while Kihanna and her mother might not have lived in luxury, they were well-off) into the extravagant life with the famous.
Kihanna has lots of spunk. She's tough and independent which allows her to stand up for herself. But, she also has a vulnerable side which makes her very relatable. She stands up to her step-mother by wearing all goth clothes instead of a fancy dress to her first family brunch. She has to put up with her pervy step-brother. Okay, well maybe he's not so bad. Toby is funny and protective, but it is really creepy when your step-brother checks you out. But despite having to put up with her step-mom, step-brother, and egotistical famous people, Kihanna loves that fact that she's getting to know her father.
I'm not quite sure what's up with the love interests. There seems to be like 5 people interested in her. But the two main ones are best friends Ty and Gabe. Ty seems to be sweet and caring, but Kihanna not quite sure what to expect from him. Gabe seems to know her better than her own boyfriend (Ty) and he's sweet and caring. I'm not quite sure I trust Courtney, Kihanna's new best friend. There's just something about her.........
I have a love-hate relationship with Mercy's cliffhanger endings. Seriously they are the best/worst. I'm one of those people who loves the torture and anticipation that a cliffhanger leaves.
The Fab Life is a fabulous (pardon the pun) book about staying true to yourself when your life is changing too fast for you to stop it.
