From Dancing with the Stars runner-up and Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson comes a fun novel about two teenage girls from different backgrounds and opposite lifestyles who discover there is more to friendship than meets the eye.
Sixteen-year-old A. J. Smith, born and raised in backwoods Tennessee, loves nothing more than repairing broken cars with her father and hanging out with her brothers and their friends. Not far away, in the busy city of Nashville, Kate Kelly is always dressed in the latest fashion, wearing clothes from her mother's boutique and jetting around the world with her father.
When A. J. starts going to the school Kate attends, they instantly dislike each other. But as the year progresses, Kate's brother, Val, is drawn to A. J., and when prom comes around, he asks her to be his date - much to his sister's displeasure. But Kate has bigger things to think about, including the reality show Real Life. Everyone says the show is her chance to make it big. But then the producers decide to bring A. J. into the show.
As the producers of Real Life try to stir up the drama, Kate's idea of the perfect prom spins out of control. When Kate's life goes disastrously wrong, it is A. J. who steps up to help - no questions asked. A friendship between the two girls just might grow, but only if they both live original and stay true to whom God made them to be.
In Life Just Got Real, Sadie Robertson inspires teens to find the value God has placed inside us all and to live with confidence and purpose in a very complicated world.
