Mix six teenage girls and one ’60s fashion icon (retired, of course) in an old Victorian-era boarding home. Add guys and dating, a little high-school angst, and throw in a Kate Spade bag or two … and you’ve got The Carter House Girls, Melody Carlson’s chick-lit series for young adults!

When her mom died, DJ had to move in with her grandmother, internationally famous ’60s fashion model Katherine Carter. Now Mrs. Carter’s opened a boarding home for young ladies, and DJ—who would rather wear her basketball team uniform than haute couture—is sure they’ll all be unbearable fashion snobs. One by one, the girls arrive and begin to figure out how to fit into this new family, getting to know each other. Sure, there’s an aspiring diva or two, but before long, the Carter House girls are dating, fighting, laughing, shopping, sharing clothes, purses, shoes … and their deepest secrets. DJ may not turn into the perfect little lady her grandmother has in mind, but one thing’s for certain—with all these new “sisters,” her life will never be the same again!

    " This book was very... interesting at first because I'm so very used to reading in first person point of view but this was third person. I adjusted to it and it was quite an excellent book. I still haven't read the sequel: Stealing Bradford, but I am very much looking forward to it. If you hesitating on reading this book or if you think the beginning sucks and wanna put it down.. DO NOT DO THAT. I t gets very good and I, honestly, am a twilight fan and can't put the twilight series books down(I know what does tht have anything to do with this??) but now I feel the same way with the Carter House Girls series... I almost feel obsessed. This book is really good and I enjoyed reading it. Like I said, I look forward to checking out Stealing Bradford once someone reaturns it to the library. "

    " Great characters and story. But. Same old resolution from Carlson. I keep telling myself to not read her books anymore. Because I already know how it'll end... finding Jesus. But the interactions, conflicts and general storytelling is worth it. I just pray (lol) for a better ending. I think an author should be more creative and try something different with each book. Grow a little. All my favorite authors do this. This pattern is constant and repeated from the 4 or so books I've read by Carlson. Sheesh. Quit it. Why is "Christian YA" considered a genre? I wish there was a section of the library/ bookstore called "science fiction YA" or "true crime YA" or anything. I think YA should be YA. Period. But that is another topic. This book could have been 5 star, except the ending lacked anything to be excited about. "

    " Wow, I really enjoyed this book. At first, it was boring, but then it got a LOT better. "

    " This book was recommended to me but I am not sure if I'll continue with the series. didn't realize it was Christian young adult so my rating is likely unfair lol. I like a little more gossip girl in my young adult reading. "
