The Chic Shall Inherit the Earth by Shelley Adina is the sixth and final book in the It's All About Us series about the girls of Spencer Academy. Narration duties have returned to Lissa who introduced us to the friends in the first book in the series. The girls are in the last few weeks of their senior year and getting ready for graduation and the Senior Cotillion. Gillian can't figure out what college to attend and there's trouble in her romance with Jeremy. Carly wants to attend a school in Los Angeles which isn't in the plans that her boyfriend, Brett, has made for them. Shani knows just what she wants, including a relationship with Danyel. Lissa knows what school she wants to attend, but she can't quite figure out the changes in her relationship with best friend Kaz, plus her faith is calling her to try and befriend Vanessa, the most popular girl in school who wields her power ruthlessly and has hurt every one of Lissa's friends including Lissa herself. Vanessa is harboring a secret that will ostracize her, making her vulnerable and leaving her alone. Lissa's decisions will endanger her friendships with the other girls, but she needs to follow the Lord's leading. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this YA series about girls who dress in designer clothing and are regularly featured in fashion magazines, yet remain true to each other and God. Adina does a terrific job of writing these girls and making them come to life. Girls and their moms will enjoy reading about this group of best friends. Adina left a few loose ends in the series, so I am hopeful that the story won't end here. Lissa, Gillian, Shani, Carly, and Mac are too good to say goodbye so soon, and I'd love to know more about Vanessa's story!
