My Review
Hmmm, we should call this one a ya paranormal mystery because most of the book is spent trying to find out what the Foster brothers are. The other part is trying to figure out which brother Eden will chose. Lol it's a fun young adult book with a great mystery plot but I wished for a little more... Surprise. I know, it's just for once I want something nice to happen lol but the dark aspects are what make the book so awesome. It definitely kept my attention. 

I really like Eden. I also really liked her BFF Liv and her aunt Essie. Eden isn't so typical with being the main character. Especially since everyone thinks her family is insane and she's one of them. It's horrible how they bully her. She's still caring and unselfish and kind to others who are bullied. 

The we have Cardalian and Jaxson. They are new in school. Different. Brothers.  They are the polar opposite of each other. I liked the extreme mysteries surrounding them. How Eden tried so hard to figure out the difference and how wrong she was. And of course I just like that they were HAWT! 

I really liked the writing style. The flow is nice, it kept me reading non stop, and I liked all the twists. The ending is a whammy though. Heads up on that cliff hanger!! So while I wait for more from book 2, I say 4.5 PAWS!!

Heidi Acosta



Heidi Acosta was born on Long Island, New York. Moving around a lot when she was younger, she has lived in New York, Arizona, New York (again), Washington, Georgia, and Florida, in that order. Each place offered her something special, but she will always consider New York her home.
Heidi started writing as soon as she could spell. When she was three, Heidi’s mother gave her a copy of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods; thus beginning her lifelong love affair with literature.
Writing soon also became a form of therapy for Heidi, when she realized that no matter what was happening in her life, she could find emotional escape while writing. Some of her earliest stories featured her as a princess who explored new worlds with her horse Buttercup. If it sounds romantic, it wasn’t, there was no prince charming in those fairy lands (boys where yucky).
Heidi now resides in Florida with her husband, very active daughter, one hyper Chihuahua, two sweet cats, and one very fat moody cat.
Barbie Girl is the first Novel of Heidi’s new, four-book, Baby Doll Series: Barbie Girl, Barbie World, Doll Face, and Southern Sugar.
