However, some have trouble staying out of trouble, so they turn to Kelli for help. Kelli gives them an alibi to help them out. However, the alibi gig is about to change when she meets Chase Maroney. Chase isn't one of the those uppity-ups from Sundale. He's a bit different and who knows might something special.
The story may sound a tad bit superficial, but it wasn't a bad read. I actually enjoyed the story and I found myself sucked into the story. I would start to put the book down, but couldn't resist the urge to put it down. In the story you learn that Kelli is lonely and truly wants to find friends. However, she is going about it the wrong way. Then she meets Chase, who becomes her real friend. Actually their relationship reminds me a brother and sister relationship at first. As they slowly get to know each their friendship starts to evolve and becomes more. Yet, Kelli alibi gig starts to jeopardizes her budding relationship with Chase, she realizes she needs to decide if she wants to continue her life as it is or make a go of a real life.
The story was a pretty easy read. It kind of reminded me of a young adult book, but still a sweet read. Here is the bottom line about Friday Night Alibi: If you have been reading young adult books and have been wanting to make the transition to more grown up books, Friday Night Alibi would be a good transition book for this goal. Or if you are looking for a quick read that has some witty lines, you might like this book.
