Barbie World Tour! A Review of Barbie World by Heidi Acosta

Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: Published 2013

The Blurb:
“One Night is all it took to change everything between Barbie and me. One night to potentially lose the girl of my dreams forever. How do I prove to her that she can trust me? That all I want to do is protect her carefully guarded heart. I need to prove to her that I want to be a part of her world. But how?”

Dylan lost Barbie once before, now he is determined more than ever to win her heart and trust back. Easier said than done, especially with the new hot guy in town who is in a rock band and is the complete opposite of Dylan.

Barbie has been hurt beyond repair or so she thinks. It would be easier for heart to decide if she didn’t have to protect her little brother. And if Dylan would just put on a shirt! Dylan is not making this easy on her. It helps to have the distraction of the new guy in town cute bad boy Kai. But even though her heart is damaged it still knows what it wants.

When Barbie learns she has a family and with the help of Roxie and Kai, oh and Third and Dylan. They embark on a journey to help bring Barbie closer to a past she never knew existed.
Heidi Acosta brings you the heart felt story of friendship, love and heartbreak in the second book in of the Baby doll series Barbie World.

My Review:
Barbie World is the second book in the Baby Doll series by Heidi Acosta. Check out my review of the first book in the series, Barbie Girl. This time around was a combination of enjoyment and frustration. the story is told through both Barbie and Dylan's perspective. Barbie's point of view was enjoyable. This girl is strong, and quite frankly I think she should kick Dylan to the curb. Dylan was very whiny in this book. He wants Barbie back so bad, yet he doesn't dump Katie. He strings her along through most of the book. I completely lost respect for him. I like how Barbie's handling things though. She's once again in a tough situation. It's not dangerous like the last book, but still tough. She has moments of uncertainty(who doesn't), but for the most part, I think she's growing up. Third is still my favorite character!

The ARC of Barbie World by Heidi Acosta was provided to me by Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

About the Author:
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.
