The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet by Stephanie Morrill

~Saturday Stories~ 

Typical Ellie: I’m ninety-nine percent sure the only reason I’m interested in Palmer Davis is because I know without a doubt I could never have him. “Ellie?” I turn from the doorway— the one Palmer stands in with Diego Ortiz—and face Lucy. 

Ellie Sweet is just a usual girl trying to survive high school with her friends. But then those friends decide that they're too cool for her and avoid her. And what's worse is that her secret crush is shouted out for the whole world to hear. Now's the time for Ellie's sweet revenge - writing a novel. 

The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet was a very interesting story. I could understand Ellie on many levels. And I loved her not-cruel-and-often-funny sarcasm from the start. Reading about a writer was so fun too. What would really make this book great, in my opinion, would be more about God. Ellie says she's a Christian and she doesn't party, but otherwise there's not too much about her faith. 

The sequel to The Revised Life is The Unlikely Debut of Ellie Sweet. Another book of Stephanie Morrill's is her novella Throwing Stones, which is free on her website.
