  • 4 Let s stop pretending Stars Resisting the Rebel is one of those books that came along just when I needed to read it Having had a week or two of drama filled angsty reads, it was the perfect, light and easy to read, story line that I needed break things up a bit.Mandy Pennington and Caleb Torrs are polar opposites when it comes to interests, personalities and their general outlooks on life, but for some reason they get along with each other in ways, which comes as of a shock to Caleb as he is [...]

  • He was into bad girls, which made sense because he was totally bad boy.I Love This Book.Even if it s lame I liked the whole thing about fake relationship, teasing between Mandy and Caleb who is my new book boyfriend by the way , how he called Mandy with this cute nickname Disco , their sharing moment in park and also Mandy s crazy grandma I also liked how author naturally mentioned difficulties encountered by people with ADHD and learning disabilities Although I wouldn t call Caleb bad boy but [...]


  • Full Review located here kaitbooktopia 201Resisting the Rebel was a fun and cute read that I think anyone who enjoys those types of books will definitely enjoy this one There are a lot of cliches, so as long as that doesn t bother you, I think you will fall in love with the story The plot was entertaining, the characters relatable, and the romance absolutely swoon worthy.


  • This is a great ya romance where pretending to be involved leads to the real thing Mandy Pennington is a natural leader, involved in all kinds of societies and groups in her school but she also has ADHD and Dysgraphia making written work a real struggle for her She does have her own posse of friends, especially J.T and Cammie and they are both brilliant characters, too When Mandy s crush, Gus, asks invites her to a party she certainly didn t anticipate him deserting her to go with someone who al [...]


  • Sorry but no Nope nope nope I might have enjoyed this one if I read it at 13 y o Or not No time for review, maybe later though I doubt I ll want to come back to this book anytime soon


  • I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This book did not start out well for me, and I almost put it down 10% of the way in However, once I made it far enough, it picked up enormously, and I found myself enjoying it at the end I did have to give in a bit to the silliness of some of it, but I do enjoy some silliness from time to time.If you read my reading updates lower down, you ll see I was not enjoyi [...]


  • This is a new to me author and after reading the blurb I was super excited to get my hands on this one This book was hard to read for me The beginning was slow for me and the characters weren t all that likable or developed in my opinion This was an opposite attracts contemporary YA novel and I was just not feeling it Mandy has been in love with her best friend Gus for forever and when he asks her to go to a party with him she jumps at the chance Little does she know that he is only going there [...]


  • Resisting the Rebel First things first I received an ARC of this book from Entangled through NetGalley.The book comes out july 25th Check it out if you want something cute and fun I loved everything about this book Except for Gus but every person should hate people like Gus The characters were amazing Mandy OH MANDY I don t think I have ever read a character like her She was so full of live and just such a positive person I want one like her around me all time She got really frustrating sometime [...]


  • This book contains a villain pretending to be a hero, a hero pretending to be a villain, a disco dancing heroine, two overprotective sidekicks, a little bit of bad language, and a whole lot of swoon kissing.First of all love the declaimer, it was not the unoriginal sweet, cute, blah blah blah , so I got hooke from the first page Sometimes the scariest villains look the most innocent And heroes don t always wear white Ok, so I liked both characters and the friends I like that he wasn t the player [...]


  • I really really liked this one Resisting the Rebel is right up my alley with the brooding bad boy who may not be so bad after all He likes to keep to himself I get it His love for reading only makes him that much adorable and Mandy needs a serious kick in the butt for not seeing it sooner Speaking of Mandy I totally loved her hippie vibe and thought it was pretty cool to read about a smart, cool girl, who just so happens to have dysgraphia and ADHD You don t see that often and I actually had ne [...]


  • Awesome YA sweet read The characters of Mandy and Caleb are both incredible and I loved the slow build of their relationship My only complaint about this book is the cover Seriously, this needs a leather wearing bad boy on the cover A minor complaint but still Caleb is known as the school bad boy People didn t mess with him and he was fine with that Since he prefers fictional characters over actual people being a loner works for him Mandy on the other hand is on every committee, loves people, an [...]


  • First of all, thank you to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for this review copy of RESISTING THE REBEL I am a big fan of this publisher s Crush imprint and this book just might be my favorite so far It s cute, well written, and had me smiling the entire time I love Mandy s quirks and positive outlook on life, and she was really a great main character who deserved happiness I m always a sucker for the fake boyfriend story, and this one was pulled off really well, and had unique turns you didn t expe [...]


  • This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I really loved this book Although the title sounds really cliche, the author took a new angle on the common trope of the good girl and bad boy I loved how Mandy wasn t the typical good girl and was a complex character what with her love of the 70s, family situation, ADHD and disgraphia rather than the generic over achiever and goody two shoes The characters felt genuine and real and the book was set at a good pace, although th [...]


  • This was cuter in some parts than in others, but overall, it was a fun read I definitely preferred the banter between Disco and the demon when it was just them and no one else was around 0 Plus, all of those almost kisses were pretty dang hot And the friendships in this book made the storyI might not have liked Mandy at all, if not for them And while I ve always loved the fake boyfriend trope, I might like it even because of Caleb.

  • I received an eARC of Resisting the Rebel from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange with an honest review.First things first, I am a realist And I here by declare Lisa Brown Roberts as the Queen of Romance and Comedy.The charisma that these characters have is amazing I has a hard time catching my breath from swooning laughing I will admit that at the beginning , I wasn t a huge fan of the writing style I knew that Lisa can write better than that because I read other works by her But the elem [...]


  • I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 Teenage Angst Stars Young adult age range 13 , parental discretion with a handful of swear words the dubious actions of one of the characters, but not above the norm of true to life situations Sexual content kissing Lisa Brown Roberts is a new to me author, and I look forward to reading of her works The writing style flowed fluidly and at a nice pace, with age appropriate behavior by the characters Mandy has ADHD learning dis [...]


  • Not quite the book for me, sad to say Resisting the Rebel feels too juvenile and too campy even by Entangled Crush s standards and lays the clich s on thick with the brooding bad boy and a flighty, rainbow, navel gazing girl who are opposites in every way It s probably perfect for teens whose greatest worry is securing a date for the school dance and keeping their grades up amidst the million of social activities they juggle, but this book made it especially hard to connect with any of the chara [...]


  • Love, love, love this story I wasn t reading much earlier this, but when I really picked it yesterday, I was hooked with Mandy, Caleb, J.T Cammie, and all the rest of Many s posse.well, except Gus, the creep I particularly liked the allusions to the Power Rangers, the allusions to books and reading, and the glimpses of Slade and Trina, still taking care of their crazy charges Must read, especially if you ever thought that the rebel in Sky High was the better boyfriend.



  • Well wow The disclaimer is accurate Swoony kisses indeed It was so hot I almost melted there and then I really enjoyed this book, although the start was a bit weird and slow And it was also frustrating Well, actually, mostly Mandy was frustrating I must say, I didn t like much Caleb and Mandy in the beginning But they grew on me after a while Caleb was totally Tall, Dark and Broody, but had also that hidden sweet side of him that he showed only to Mandy or J.T Quote The crazy prom posal, the fak [...]



  • Oh my gosh THIS BOOK Where do I even begin Resisting the Rebel is just one of those books I can t help but love from the very beginning It was fluffy, swoony and hilarious How can Lisa Roberts write such an amazing, relatable characters and an adorable romance I have no idea But damn This book was just brimming with AWESOMEness.Mandy I was never really a fan of her name though She didn t sound like a Mandy to me for some reason was a terrific heroine You know those people who was just in every s [...]
