Skylar Hoyt in the first book of the series, Me Just Different, was a high school girl who loved to party and wanted to be the queen of the school. When she got closer to God her life changed. She decided to change her ways. In Out with the In Crowd (The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt) by Stephanie Morrill, Skylar has to figure out who she really is and how she can live her life with the help of god. All of her old friends may still act the same but she is not included in the incrowd anymore. Her family is in turmoil. Her younger sister Abbie is pregnant and she is unsure if she wants to keep the baby. Their parents have marital issues and may be splitting up. Her mother has moved out of the house, and she wants her daughters to move to Hawaii with her. Skyler loves her whole family and does not want to hurt her father. There are secrets in the family's past that are revealed in the book. She is in love with Connor and does not want to leave him. What is a girl to do? How will God help her make the right decision?
About the Author-
Stephanie Morrill loves writing for teens because her high school years greatly impacted her adult life. I spent the first part of my childhood in California. Long enough to be influenced, to have roots there, but not long enough to really be “from” there. I did the bulk of my growing up in Kansas City. It’s where I went to high school, met my husband, and worked a few lousy jobs. Ben and I make our life here now, along with our baby girl, McKenna, and dog, K.C. They’re the most interesting things about me. Without them I’m just a book junkie with a crazy thing for coffee, who would rather sit in front of my computer and write than go to a party.

As a sophomore in High School, I hear all the gossip and arguments in the hallways of my school and I can relate to the characters in the book. The book was well written and the plot was engaging. The characters were real and gave a true portrayal of life as a teenager. This is a great young adult book. I look forward to reading the third book in the series So Over It. Although I have not read the first book in the series, I was able to understand what troubles Skylar had in the past, and how she changed her ways.
