The Dirt by Lori Culwell Blog Tour Stop

Lucy Whitley cannot wait to get out of Palm Desert. It’s not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school—and practically the whole town.Fortunately, life is about to change forever. Lucy’s dad is getting re-married, and then she can transfer to a boarding school in Connecticut, escaping all the mean girls and the endless whispers about the Whitley family scandal. Everything is going to be perfect—as long as the wedding goes smoothly.



The Dirt was a great and funny read for me. It was a change up from what I have been reading and it was a breath of fresh air. I love a story where the main character is overlooked and treated funny by their own family. I love to see how the authors put it all together so that in the end the person learns to respect themselves and fight the good fight so to speak.

The Dirt starts out with poor Lucy Whitley. She is a nerd and not very popular. Although she has her two best friends that stay by her side she is reserved and keeps to herself. She does this because she has always lived in the shadow of her older sister Sloane who is Miss Popular. Sloane has it all she has the friends the boys and the school wrapped around her finger. All Lucy wants to do is lay low and move somewhere where she does nto have to live in the shadow of Sloane.

She just might get that chance when her father decides to re-marry.She is kinda excited and looking forward to the wedding but she also has her reservations. Well her gut feelings are right because as the wedding is in motion someone comes in to stop it and happens after that can only be described as a roller coaster ride that you have to read to fully enjoy the ups and downs and the secrets and lies that are exposed.
