Celia Thomas should be living a charmed life; as the niece of Hollywood’s current it guy, whose whole family is on the payroll, she doesn’t have to worry about money or future job prospects. Except maybe she doesn’t want to go into the family business. Although with her marks being what they are, there’s a chance she won’t even finish her year at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, let alone find her perfect career. After years of just skating by, she’s now flunking everything and the dean isn’t going to stand for it for much longer.
At least her romantic prospects are looking up as things start to heat up in the kitchen with Shane, her student supervisor. Then, Evan Jenkins, or Jenks—another long-time crush—starts showing interest. Two guys; what a problem to have! But Celia knows she needs to focus on her marks because getting the boot from Rosewood will kill all her chances at romance and finding a happily ever after. Knowing she can’t do it on her own, Celia hires a tutor, but in many ways that just complicates things even more.
It seems the only things she can count on are her friends: her Rosewood girls and the new tutor who seems so worldly and knows a lot more than just algebra and history. But can the girl who seems to have everything really have it all?
Turning the Page is the ninth installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.
Celia's heartwarming story in the Rosewoods Series. She definitely turned the page.
Another winner for Katrina Abbott! I love this series...especially how each of the girls at Rosewoods Academy gets her own time to shine. This one is Celia's story.
She's always struggled with school and with knowing her path in general. She's always had a "fall-back" plan, so she never really applied herself to school the way she should have. She'd rather spend her time playing sports or reading a good romance novel. (I can totally relate!). She's never had a real boyfriend, so she lives vicariously thru her books.
But things have hit a critical point at Rosewoods and the dean is threatening to kick her out unless she can bring up her grades. As much as her friends have tried to help her, it just hasn't worked. So she's going to bite the bullet and get a tutor.
So right at the time she gets this super strict tutor, she has two hot guys who want to spend time with her. So now how's she going to prioritize her time? She knows what she needs to do, but what she wants in finally happening. What's a girl to do? Especially, when the tutor is completely different than she expects.
This was such a heartwarming story. But of course, filled with high school girl drama and emotional scenes. Completely loved the outcome!
