On a Slippery Slope
It was just a little white lie. What could possibly go wrong â€¦
If a super-cute boy (one you really want to impress) assumes that youâ€™re a championship skier and snowboarder, is it really that big of a deal if you donâ€™t set him straight?
When a teensy fib starts snowballing out of control, Hannah Smart realizes she needs cash to keep from being found out. She takes a part-time job at the local TV station where her dad works as the weatherman. After nearly killing a woman (it was an accident!) and then saving her on air, Hannah unexpectedly finds herself in front of the camera again. Loving the spotlight, Hannah is swept up in the excitement of TV land, but with the school ski trip coming up, she soon realizes that some secrets are impossible to keep hidden. But wanting to come clean and doing it are two very different things.
This lightly amusing first-person tale delivers a smoothly entertaining ride ending with a deft set up of the final book in the series.
Hannah Smart: On a Slippery Slope is a rollicking readâ€¦ entertaining, with astutely observed dialogue.
A lively, funny series with a lovable heroine who keeps getting herself into impossibly wacky predicaments.
