The Academy- Book Review

The AcademyFrankie Brooks knows what she wants in life: to become the world’s next great fashion editor. All she needs to do is get into the elite American Fashion Academy in New York City. If she gets in, her life plans will be going right on schedule. Anna Wintour, watch out.

But after Frankie messes up one too many times—hey, it’s hard keeping up with classwork and an acclaimed fashion blog—her parents come up with entirely different plans for her future: Military school. How is Frankie, the least athletic person in the world, who knows absolutely nothing about the military, going to survive a whole semester at the famed—and feared—Academy?

With students who seem to be totally uninterested in her, a course-load that’s even more difficult than at her old school, and the weird athletic War Games competition Frankie has to join—her life is way harder than it used to be. And no one, including her roommate Joni, seems to understand Frankie at all.

As she learns how to cope in about a million drills, a hundred different specialized classes, and is maybe even falling for super-hot and super-smart cadet Jack Wattson, can Frankie prove to everyone that being a fashionista doesn’t mean she can’t succeed?

Frankie, who is a lifestyle blogger and die heart fashionista, but made some mistakes So her parents decided to send her military school as her life is so lacking discipline. Where she met Joni and Jack who made her life easy in military school.

The story was cute and fuzzy, I really enjoyed reading it. The writing wasn’t perfect for me sometimes I got bored but that was for a short duration.

Frankie is interesting as well as an annoying character, I was constantly rolling my eyes on her actions. But she was also fun to read.

There were a few other characters, in the first half of the book they were mysterious.

I can’t say the story was focused on romance it was well balanced, I loved the idea how author relates military and fashion.

I really needed to read a cute and fun book.

    Never heard of this before but it looks and sounds cool! I think it’s too much tho, to send her to military school if she doesn’t want to, because we all know it’s really tough there.

    It sounds intriguing but I’m not totally sold on it. Her parents sound as if they’re being a little unfair to push her towards a life she doesn’t want. Maybe I’m getting too deep into it from the blurb haha. This is a good review though, and who knows maybe I’ll pick a copy up someday!

    Best wishes,
