  • I love this book probably than I expected A teenage American girl has just made the move to England with her family She s ready to embrace all new experiences and see where God points her in this new country that has fantastic accents and fashion Her heart and circumstances are leading her to the school newspaper, even though there doesn t seem to be a place for her there.What I like The spiritual content makes for quality, godly fiction for teen girls to be reading Savannah s faith fits right [...]


  • Savvy is trying to adjust to moving to England, where she is very lonely She hopes that working on her high school newspaper will help her make friends, but she is just the delivery girl Savvy turns to God through her troubles.This book takes place in England That alone made me want to pick up the book And when I did, I wasn t disappointed I really did enjoy it I could relate to Savvy trying to adjust and knew what she was going through when she was sad that her old friends had moved on She was [...]


  • First impressions 1 it is incredibly clear that the author is most definitely not British, because she has simply transplanted an American high school set up i.e there are no clear geek drama freaks punks groups in the cafeteria and I ve never heard of a losers table in my school years and I attended an all girls religious school, which are the order of the day in the UK and British secondary schools high school don t tend to have a student run school paper, that s of a university thing over he [...]


  • This was a really cute book I loved the light message, with good advice that can be applied to real life without coming on to strong Savvy was a relatable character, with struggles even I, a homeschooling girl, could relate to I loved that she view spoiler didn t get the job she wanted originally because she had lied It was awesome to see that the lie did not work out, and she knew it, and it was bittersweet It really made me root for her even later on when she had another opportunity to join t [...]


  • This was very good Geared for a bit younger than me, but I still enjoyed it, and am looking forward to starting the next book Great book for young teens and old too for that matter , with good, godly lessons woven gently throughout.


  • This book was very cute and I would highly recommend it for teens Unlike most things written for teens, this was very clean, not about romance, and not over dramatic Savannah Savy is a nice American girl that finds herself in London.If you are tired of the normal books for teens where everything is about romance and drama, this is a great pick.


  • Ever wonder what it would be like as a teen if your family moved to Great Britain Sandra Byrd, the author of the 4 book London Confidential series, takes the reader on such a venture in her newest tween teen novels Asking for Trouble and its sequel, Through Thick Thin introduce 15 year old Savannah Smith Savvy for short from Seattle, Washington whose family relocates across the pond Amidst adjusting, Savvy has a heart to please God, which makes these stories genuine page turners How far will she [...]


  • I wanted to like this book, I really did I m also a writer, I also moved to a completely new country at a young age, I also know what s it like to not fit in and be lonely But Asking for Trouble fell flat in so many ways and I couldn t relate to it.The entire book just seemed silly to me An immature heroine, multiple cliches the hot school editor Check The popular mean girls Check Stereotypical English behavior I m pretty sure people don t say chockabloc as often as the author suggests check A p [...]


  • BOOK OVERVIEW When her family moves to London, 15 year old Savvy Smith has to make her way in a new school and a new country She just knows the school newspaper is the right place for her, but she doesn t have the required experience, and the cute editor in chief is not looking to train anyone She has to come up with a way to prove herself and nab the one available position on the newspaper staff at Wexburg Academy.London Confidential is a new series where British fashion, friendships, and guys [...]


  • This was a really cute story of Savannah Savvy trying to find her place in not just a new school but on a new continent Her dad has gotten a new job and it is a hard adjustment for the whole family.The story is told through Savvy s POV I like how Sandra Byrd was able to incorporate good life lessons for the readers through the things that Savvy went through and the scripture that Savvy used.The characters are pretty likeable It was cool to see some of the words that they really would use in Lond [...]


  • This is an adorable book about 15 year old Savvy Smith whose family has moved to a village outside of London during her high school years where they all pretty much have to start over The book shows that starting over isn t easy, whether it s for Savvy, her mom, her little sister or even for her dad It s very entertaining and I love Savvy s outlook on things She never gets too down and in her times of deepest need she turns to the Bible and to God in a very realistic way.I also felt this book wa [...]


  • In my teen years I read lots of Sweet Valley High books I don t think there s anything wrong with them, but I do wish I had known of books like these I would have gotten so much out of them, along with just having fun reading I would have been encouraged to read of other teen girls praying and studying their Bible I did have encouragement in other ways, but my reading material could have been better.Asking for Trouble is definitely geared towards teen tween readers, but I had fun reading it, t [...]


  • I don t usually read YA, but I was pleasantly surprised with ASKING FOR TROUBLE.Savvy Smith has just moved to London with her family and feels totally out of place Vying for a spot on the school newspaper, she finally lands it as the delivery person Will she get the column she craves and a place with friends What I enjoyed about this book, was it doesn t have the typical teen talk that just makes them sound like cool is the only word in their vocabulary Savvy is a sensitive person, with a heart [...]


  • REVIEWThis adorable series was quick and fun to read Savvy is the type of teen girl that I hope to be like She is spunky, funny, and she never gives up Savvy is a great role model for other girls to follow and I could relate to her There is plenty of London speak in these books, and I could tell that Sandra Byrd had done her homework The setting is so different from the United States, and I liked reading about Savvy s school The plot moves nicely from one book to the other as Savvy adjusts to he [...]


  • Asking for Trouble was a great book Sandra Byrd did a great job on letting the readers know how Savvy was feeling You could really feel how desperately she wanted a friend You could also feel how badly she want to be able to write in the school newspaper Savvy and her family had just moved to England from Settle None of the members of her family was having a easy time fitting in or making friends, but for Savvy worst of all they couldn t find a new Church Take a trip with Savvy and find out how [...]


  • The first thought I had after finishing this sweet little read was how good it made me feel It s so unpretentious and full of sincerity That s something I rarely find with the characters in self published books Anyway, I loved everything about this novel I especially liked the differences between the American and British way of living, which the main character kept highlighting It was informative My heart went out to Savvy and her family for how much they struggled to adapt to English life and h [...]


  • I really liked this one than I thought I would not to mention how many cool variations on words that we say here in America that are something different there I got so tickled at some of Savannah s mistakes like when she was asked if she had trainers for the track team and she thought it kind of odd they were so serious about their sport when in fact they were asking her if she had tennis shoes LOL It just was very interesting as well as entertaining to read.There were a few parts that I felt s [...]


  • Although I m not in the target audience, I still, for the most part, enjoyed reading Asking for Trouble I thought it had some good messages i.e to be yourself.There are a lot of British terms used throughout the book like dustbins garbage cans , the post the mail , and Cheerio Although I ve never been to London, I find it hard to imagine teenagers saying things like Cheerio and Jolly Overall, I thought Asking For Trouble was a fun, easy read that I think most preteens and young teens would enjoy [...]


  • This is a cute young adult book about Savvy Smith who s family has just moved to London.It s about adjustments for Savvy and her family, oh don t forget the dog Savvy wants to write for the paper but because she doesn t have experience they won t let her although her interview article was great, so to be a part of the team she starts delivering the papers What happens next is really cool but you are going to have to read the book to find out Love the God references in here as well I felt like I [...]


  • I don t think I m this novel s target audience, but I still found it enjoyable Maybe that s because of the journalist writer connection I enjoyed reading about Savannah trying to cope as an expatriate American living in England, especially as she struggles to make friends in her new environment It was well written and enjoyable, although the British stuff was a bit overdone I can imagine an American responding that way, though.


  • A fun read of an American girl living in England I loved how many British terms were used, even if some of them I haven t heard yet myself I have to say that a lot of words I hardly notice any because I ve lived here for several years, but as a newbie you definitely would realize the difference I m looking forward to reading the others in this series


  • My 8 year old daughter and I are reading this series together at night I love the main character, Savy, and that her main focus is on God It sends a great message to young girls The London setting makes it even appealing to my daughter.


  • This is a great story for girls, aged around 12 It was easy to read, and had great values in it I also really enjoyed the publishing writing aspect of it.I HIGHLY suggest, if you have a young girl or girls, you get them this book They will love it too




  • The story was touching and just a bit inspiring Sandra Byrd has a comfortable, easy going style to her writing, and makes for a quick read Her character Savannah has her eyes set on a position at the school newspaper, but will she be able to penetrate the British American culture barrier and get the chance to prove herself The premise felt familiar from Ms Byrd s French Twist series, though I enjoyed that series than Asking for Trouble.I would especially recommend this book to young adults espe [...]


  • Savannah, or Savy, as she goes by, moved from the US to England with her family and life seems a bit uncertain Being the new girl and being from the US it makes finding new friends difficult There are school clubs and activities, but nothing really interesting That is until she sees an ad for the help wanted on the school paper team, but would they accept her Find out and see if this could be the start of something new in book one of this series This book was very well written and funny to read [...]


  • Savannah and her family have moved from the US to London England for her dad s job As a high school student, Savannah has left her friends, her church, and her familiar surroundings Like a duck out of water, she is trying to find her place in a new situation Savannah s attempts to find her spot at Wexford Academy among the cliques were both sad and humorous Once she found her spot on the newspaper, Savannah found herself answering Dear Abby type letters that forced her to think about her own sit [...]


  • Asking for Trouble is the uplifting but simple and flat tale of a teenage girl newly transported from the U.S to the U.K and trying desperately to find her place in her new home country It sounded better than it was and I didn t realize it was Christian fiction when I downloaded it.
