BOOK REVIEW: THE NANNIES
This is the story of three teens who come from very different backgrounds and become good friends.
Kiley wants to attend school in California. In order to help with the costs, she jumps at the chance to be in a reality series called Platinum Nanny. She soon finds this isn't as easy as it looks.
Lydia, who is stuck in the Amazon with her parents, is offered the opportunity to be a nanny for her aunt's children in Bel Air. She always dreamed of this type of life after reading about it in magazines.
Esme lives in a section of LA loaded with gangs. Her parents work for wealthy people who adopt two South American children. Esme is offered the job of being a summer nanny for the children. Esme has a hard time dealing with the family's wealth and the son of her new employer.
The teens meet at a country club and become friends. Even though they come from different backgrounds, they all have some family problems to deal with and relate to one another this way.
This is an excellent chick-lit book. It is well written and the author does a terrific job of developing her characters. You get a very vivid picture in your mind as to what Kiley, Lydia and Esme should look like. Teenagers will love this book because they will find so many points to which they can relate. As an "older" reader, I also enjoyed this very promising book that will soon develop into a series.
