Genre: Chick lit.
Is stepping up her game as Shira sheds Alpha Academy girls faster than skin from a will-pumiced foot. There's just one thing standing in her way: island bad boy Taz Brazille. Can Skye keep a dancer's poise, or will Taz throw her off the music once and for all?
Allie A. Abbott
Finally knows who she really is, and nothing is going to bring her down. Not even AJ, who just can't let go of the past. But she can Bring. It. On. Allie's come too far to be sent home without a fight.
After bouncing like a dashboard hula doll between Allie and Darwin, Charlie finally has her BFF and Brazille beau by her side. But as the competition on Alpha Island reaches its boiling point, will her drive to win make her lose what matters most?
Eccentric billionaire Shira Brazille founded the super-exclusive Alpha Academy to nurture the next generation of exceptional dancers, writers, musicians, and inventors. It's a dream come true for one hundred lucky girls, but those not measuring up will be sent home at any time, for any reason. The one left standing will win worldwide fame. Who will it be?
So obviously, I was a bit confused in the beginning. It wasn't hard to catch up though, so that was fine. I don't plan on reading the third book because it would feel like I was taking a step backwards.
I found this book a bit boring, to be honest. I liked the beginning because it had a very promising start. There was a twist thrown at me, and although it was necessary so that the girls could have some character development, and for the final twist to make sense, it made the book less interesting.
My love for Charlie grew in this book. I love her relationship with Darwin because it's genuine and selfless. They're just so cute together, and you can't help but adore Darwin.
I also continued to like Skye, even though she annoyed me here and there. I was rooting for her and Taz to be together, from the very beginning. I love how things turned out for her. Although I respect her decision, I cannot believe she encouraged Triple to...[spoiler].
I actually didn't hate or dislike Allie in this book. Granted, I still prefer Charlie and Skye, but I no longer hate her. I'm sort of neutral with her. There are times when I like her, but then she'd say something stupid/annoying and I couldn't truly like her.
I absolutely loathed AJ. I wanted her to throw herself off of a cliff, or plane from the second she spoke.
The very big twist that Lisi gave us at the end was completely unexpected but it makes so much sense. I admit that an 'Alpha Academy' seemed very lame to me in the beginning but the final twist explained it all, and everything suddenly makes sense.
Likes: Charlie, Skye, Darwin, Allie, the Scout Girls.
Dislikes: AJ, and Skye's decison regarding her love life.
