Review: Jet Set by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman

Living the fabulous life in a not so fabulous story!

Jet Set is about an American girl named Lucy Peterson who earns herself a scholarship to Switzerland’s most elite Van Pelt Academy. With Van Pelt’s caviar at every meal, white-tie affairs and royals everywhere, hopefully she can stay focus on her academics and tennis goals. Sadly for Lucy, Van Pelt has distractions around every corner, she has no clue what she has gotten herself into.

This books plot was truly a great idea but I feel it was poorly delivered. The story was all over the place, as soon as I would get into something it would jump to something else and it would be a while before it got back to what I had gotten interested in. I wish the characters weren’t so dull and that the author’s were more descriptive of the characters. Jet Set was a big disappointment to me, all the glitz and glam surrounding this story couldn’t save this jet from it’s nose-dive. So if you want you can check out Jet Set when it is released in August from Harperteen.

I may skip this then. It didn't seem that interesting to me and I'm obsessed with characterization.

As a result, they attempt to follow their lead, which often leads to the development of negative, dangerous or even delinquent models of behavior if violence is abundantly present on television. In such a context, the way violence is represented in television and media at large is particularly important because it shapes the youth’s attitude to violence in the real life.
