Stealing Bradford by Melody Carlson

Back Cover: The Carter House Girls are just getting to know one another when the subject of boys comes up. Rhiannon's dating Bradford, a fellow Christian and the most popular jock in the school; Eliza's seeing Harry; and DJ was dating Connor, although now he acts as if he doesn't like her. Boys aren't always easy to understand, but many girls in the house want a boyfriend- and will do just about anything to get one. So when Taylor decides to put the moves on Bradford, Rhiannon is shocked and hurt. Mistakes are made and feelings battered... there is forgiveness for some and bitterness for other... but at the end of the day, the girls learn a valuable lesson about what it means to be a family. I thought this was a great book! Melody Carlson's books just flow, like the words just come naturally and so does the story, I love that about her, she's just an amazing author that's for sure, anyways. I like this story because it shows how revenge doesn't do any good, it may temporarily, but in the long run will just come back to hurt you. I was pretty surprised Casey did that, but then again it kinda makes sense because she just seemed to hate Taylor so much, and Taylor did seem extremely annoying and mean most of the time, but then again, you don't know that person, so they probably have a reason they're like that, they're not all they think they are, or what you think they are, although her taking Bradford away was horrible! and DJ is so great, she's unsure, but she still commits. Kriti you don't hear as much about, more from Eliza and Rhiannon, but that's ok. They're all a weird bunch of girls, but they're learning to get along I think.
