# Defending Taylor # Miranda Kenneally

Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally Review!


There are no mistakes in love.

Captain of the soccer team, president of the Debate Club, contender for valedictorian: Taylor's always pushed herself to be perfect. After all, that's what is expected of a senator's daughter. But one impulsive decision-one lie to cover for her boyfriend-and Taylor's kicked out of private school. Everything she's worked so hard for is gone, and now she's starting over at Hundred Oaks High.

Soccer has always been Taylor's escape from the pressures of school and family, but it's hard to fit in and play on a team that used to be her rival. The only person who seems to understand all that she's going through is her older brother's best friend, Ezra. Taylor's had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. But it's hard to trust after having been betrayed. Will Taylor repeat her past mistakes or can she score a fresh start?

Miranda Kenneally has done it once again! I absolutely fell in love with Defending Taylor from the very first page!!

Very quickly into the story, you are introduced to Taylor, a senior, captain of the soccer team and straight A student. Being the daughter of a Senator, Taylor has high expectations she is expected to live up to. She must do well in school, respect the family name and make no mistakes.

Why do I have to work so hard to make him proud? Can't he love me for me?

Taylor ends up making a mistake, that not only causes her problems with her family, but also gets her kicked out of school. The only way to move forward, is to go back to where her life started. Taylor must go back to public school and Hundred Oaks High to finish off her senior year.

Sometimes, problems grow like a crack in the ceiling that starts out small but expands if you're not paying attention.

I simply cannot say enough good things about this novel. I sat down, anticipating to only read a few chapters, however, I ended up devouring the entire book in one sitting. It is definitely a must read, as are Miranda's other books in the Hundred Oaks Series.

It's your life. If you want to live, you need to do what you love.

5/5 Stars!
