Review: Welcome To Hickville High by: Mary Karlik

Title: Welcome To Hickville High
Author: Mary Karlik
Publisher:  GPK Publication LLC
Series: Hickville High #1
Format: e-book (293 p.)


The Universe has completely dumped on High School senior Kelsey Quinn’s life. Credit card at Nordstrom’s? Deactivated. Honda Accord? Sold. Life in the burbs of Chicago? Gone. And it’s all her sister’s fault. Yep. Drugs, alcohol, and getting caught with the boss’s son was all it took. Dad loses job, family loses money, and the next thing she knows she’s crammed in a cell on wheels for the next two days as they make their way to a dilapidated farmhouse in Texas. But Kelsey doesn’t just leave the good life in Chicago. She leaves the boy who-has-it-all, Drew Montgomery.

Hillside senior, quarterback, Austin McCoy works for Kelsey’s dad at the feed store and helps with the farm chores in the morning. He sees through Kelsey’s surly attitude to the girl whose eyes light up when she’s with the animals. He is determined to help Kelsey see that not only does she love the Farmville life, but that the guy she really wants is him.

Will Austin convince Kelsey he’s the guy she wants? Will Kelsey embrace the simple life and find forgiveness for her sister?

My Thoughts: 

This book follows the Quinn family whose had to uproot their life and move to Hickville Texas due to job issues with Kelsey's dad and a scandal with her sister Ryan.  From the lap of luxury to the lap of hell is where Kelsey finds herself now.  She ends up with one friend before school begins senior quarterback Austin McCoy who finds himself drawn to Kelsey regardless of her boyfriend in Chicago.  Will Kelsey and her family survive Hickville or will they run as far from it as possible?

I love this series it's a cute ya that shows cute guys are everywhere and even in Hickville they have their share of drama and scandal.  This book pulled you in and reminds you of your high school days.  Or if you are still young enough reminds you of your friends.

I think Ms. Karlik did a fabulous job with the Hickville Series so far.  It's strong and can be read as a stand alone or part of a series which it is.  Can't wait to continue the adventure with Hickville Confessions.
