Review: The Slope Rules - Melanie Hooyenga - February 2017
Following in her mother's footsteps, Cally has become quite the skier, and after her mother had died, she became more focused on being just
like her mother as she saw it as her mother's memory living through her. During
a vacation in Colorado, Cally meets a
snowboarder named Blake and sparks fly. For Cally, this is a first as normally
the guys back home don't pay her special attention as she is viewed as one of them. Cally has a whirlwind
Summer romance with Blake and when it's time to go home, the pair exchange numbers and promise to keep in touch. One
thing leads to another and Cally is heartbroken as Blake broke his promise and
then to top it off Cally receives the
news that they are moving to Colorado. Once Cally arrives, though, she swears she sees Blake, but why is he avoiding her? Soon Cally is befriended by the popular
clique called the Snow Bunnies and is welcomed into their group - the thing is
though if she wants to be one of them,
she can't talk to Blake. Cally, not one
to bow down starts a war with Britt and a series of Mean Girls events follow.
Will Cally crumble under pressure and
become a Snow Bunny or will she start a new revolution?
The Slope Rules by Melanie Hooyenga was one of those sweet YA High School
romances with the drama of the different cliques - the popular vs the underdogs. The Slope Rules is the perfect read for
those aged 14-18 years.
