I'm in love with bad boy Daniel Bellemy. Things were just starting to look up for a moment, but then my best friend Karen, who's been busy with her own love life, has come to me with fears of being pregnant!
Suddenly, life is a whole lot more complicated! And on top of that, I overheard some boys laughing about a sex club and when I see the video that they are all excited about, I freak out. It totally looks like Daniel might be involved!
Now, I have to figure out who is behind the club, help Karen through her fears, and hold on to Daniel while still managing to pass my exams because I'm not about to give up my spot as valedictorian!
Warning: Sunny Springs High is a young adult/new adult series filled with everything you could want: laughs, tears, and angst. This series is recommended for mature listeners because of cursing and "certain scenes". If that bothers you, then stay away. If not, start listening to it and enjoy!

My first impressions looking at this Sunny Springs High school series was that it would be teasing and teen drama in the high school newspaper office... what we got was must more in the same vein as Veronica Mars but presented like 90s Sabrina solving crimes with Harvey. Helena is a fantastic heroine, shes supportive of her friends and her empathy for the plight of girls in her school coupled with her determination to get justice and balance the scales was done in a way that didn't make her unlikable or air-headed. When her best friend is possibly the unfortunate subject of a heinous video on an underbelly club run by guys targeting the girls they either drugged or hooked up for sex shaming and humiliation. She is all systems go to solve the case and it all gets complicated when Karen reveals she may actually be pregnant, and Daniel, her boyfriend bares a strikingly resemblance to one of the jerks in a video on the CR Clubs secret website. Its deals with hard topics without getting gritty or dark.
Wonderful teen couple
Helena and Daniel are such a wonderful teen couple! Not only are they caring and considerate of each other, but they also extend that consideration to everyone else too. When Helena hears a girl crying on a video, she is very affected by it. She is so bothered by it that she goes digging to find out who it is and what it's about. She is also very concerned about her friend and tries to help her when she suspects she might be pregnant. I was very frustrated with Karen, but her desperation to hide it from her parents was realistic for a girl her age. Most of the characters in this story do act like real teenagers, which is something I really appreciate after reading so many books in which teens act like jaded adults. This is a good sequel to the first book, and I'm looking forward to listening to the next one.
