the characters in I m so Sure were fifty timeslikable for that matter I loved I m so Sure by Jenny B Jones So, for some reason I picked up this book, even though I disliked the first book greatly, but

the new characters The Plot The plot was very intriguing, keeping me glued to the pages I laughed, I whined, I growled, I gasped, I squealed pretty much I was fangirling throughout the whole book I m in, very much like with this one My biggest complaint for I m so Sure is that there was a love triangle Well, two.ish I call that a love diamond But that didn t bother me very much, it seems like all contemporary novels have them My Overall Thoughts I m so Sure was a lovely, fun read I still had my problems with it, but that was some leftover prejudice from book one I actually did love this book I would recommend his book In fact, I ll probably be squealing about it for days to come It was just so cute and awesome Ahhh, even better the second time aroundThe humor and mystery in this book is spot on This second outing is both charming and convolutedbut, some of the humor was over the top. did not like this one as much because it was basically a similar mystery that was poorly developed and i really only skimmed to get to the luke and bella parts which weren t that good either there are also a lot of religious references in here like praying and going to church, which i don t mind but it didn t enhance my experience because i m not religious and it was a little weird for me to read Truman, Oklahoma hasn t turned out as horribly as Bella Kirkwood thought it would Sure, her desitned label allowance has been drastically cut, but with new friends and a comfy position on the school newspaper staff, she s feeling pretty good It also helps that nearly everyone thinks she s some sort of Nancy Drew ever since she figured out what was really going on with the football team Unfortunately, now that Bella s stepdad, a semi pro wrestler, has signed their family up for a reality TV sh Truman, Oklahoma hasn t turned out as horribly as Bella Kirkwood thought it would Sure, her desitned label allowance has been drastically cut, but with new friends and a comfy position on the school newspaper staff, she s feeling pretty good It also helps that nearly everyone thinks she s some sort of Nancy Drew ever since she figured out what was really going on with the football team Unfortunately, now that Bella s stepdad, a semi pro wrestler, has signed their family up for a reality TV show, Bella s life is about to take a turn for the unbearable once again As if navigating her relationship with her newspaper editor Luke, a rekindled friendship with her ex boyfriend Hunter, and all of her reporting assignments wasn t hard enough, now she has to do it in the public eye thanks to the camera crew that stalks her And before she knows it, Bella finds herself pursuing yet another mystery at Truman High, this one regarding the upcoming prom How s a girl to keep her cool in the face of all this, especially when the threats of danger start coming I m So Sure was just as cute, hilarious, and clever as its prequel So Not Happening proved to be Bella s character is evenlikable in this story since most traces of her spoiled Manhattan princess roots have been humbled by her acceptance of her new life in Oklahoma and she remains just as determined and hardworking as ever I must admit, I generally dislike the inclusion of reality shows in books because of their tendency to turn even the most upright people into publicity hungry brats, but the wrestling show actually worked well in this novel because it reinforced many of Bella s morals Although I felt the main mystery of this story about prom was less creative and interesting that the one in So Not Happening, I still quite enjoyed it as well as Bella and Luke s somewhat cryptic but still sweet relationship If there s one main thing about I m So Sure that irked me, it was that religion was slightlyemphasized in this novel than in its prequel I do realize that I m So Sure is technically Christian fiction and that the inclusion of faith is to be expected, but there were several instances in which the religious preferences were just unnecessary and the slightest bit annoying.Fans of the So Not Happening, the prequel to I m So Sure, will eagerly snatch up this novel as well as look forward to the next installment in The Charmed Life series, So Over My Head This series may also be enjoyed by readers who liked Pure by Terra Egan McVoy and It s All About Us by Shelley
