Liberty Bell by Emily Ungar REVIEW

Liberty Belle

On the same day she turns twelve years old, Savannah moves away from everything she’s known in sweet, sunny Georgia to preppy Washington D.C. Not only will she miss her best friends Katie and Tessa, Savannah will start a new school. She soon discovers that her schoolmates love to brag—about their clothes, their parents’ governmental connections, and even who has the in with the school authorities.
Unhappy and lonely, Savannah decides if she can’t make life better, she can at least make it sound that way. Soon she is living in the childhood home of George Washington, riding in the limo of the vice president’s daughter, and even moving into the former Luxembourg embassy.
All is well until she learns that her true friends from Georgia are coming for a visit. Now Savannah must create the life she’s been talking about in her letters—and fast! Will Savannah find herself or lose her friends?

This is a cute per-teen/young teen read. It is a quick read at only about 130 pages. Savanna is dealing with what a lot of kids deal with, moving away to somewhere new. And not only that, but leaving her friends and life behind to have to go to a new school and be the new kid and make new friends. That's a lot of stress for a girl...
Or it could be exciting....
Savannah deals with the same emotions and situations all typical girls her age deal with. That includes listening to her new classmates brag. About everything. Not fun. 
Savannah quickly succumbs to missing her old life with her old friends in Washington D.C. 
But instead of wallowing in sorrow, Savannah takes to making her life be more interesting and a lot better. Or at least make it appear that way. 
Until she learns her friends from back home are coming to visit her. Will she be able to create this life she's been making up? Or will she realize what is important and become comfortable in her own skin and find happiness?
Reading this book was cute and quick. You really do feel for this girl and what she is going through. It will teach good lessons of honesty and being true to yourself and help not to fall into all the hype that can surround young girls. 

I recommend this book, especially to preteen and young teens.

I received this book for review from Anaiah Press
