Righteous by Kim Lehman

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Lucky Stars Publishing and NetGalley.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
A story about a troubled girl and her effed up, going-nowhere life.

Quick witted, sharp-tongued Righteous Andrews is troubled by a broken past, fed up with her present circumstances, and resolved to a hopeless future.

On the first day of her senior year of high school she gets in trouble, landing in the principal’s office . . . again. There she meets Colt Jackson, the new kid with a troubled past of his own. Despite her attempts to avoid him, Colt seems to show up everywhere she doesn’t want him to be, and soon they strike up an unexpected friendship. Righteous is wary. Friendships aren’t her thing. But something about Colt is different; something about him makes her curious, makes her wonder . . .

Is Colt Jackson really different from everyone else? Does happiness and love truly exist? Or will every relationship in her life always end in lies and heartache?

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars


This story lost my interest fairly early on, and couldn’t recapture it.

I didn’t really like the characters in this book. I found them quite whiney, and they just irritated me. I didn’t care what happened to them really, and I found Righteous’ mother to possibly be the worst of the bunch.

The storyline in this just couldn’t hold my interest, and I got quite bored. I didn’t even appreciate the romance really.

The ending to this was a relief. I was glad the book ended at 96%.
5 out of 10
