Robertson’s new book titled Life Just Got Real just released this week. In this fiction series novel, to introduce God into the world of high school drama and reality television. In the book, fashionista Kate Kelly and 16-year-old tomboy A.J. Smith are at odds with different lifestyles from different parts of Tennessee. On the book’s website, it tell more about the characters A.J. Smith and Kate Kelly who just so happens to live in Nashville.
Sixteen-year-old A.J. Smith, born and raised in backwoods Tennessee, loves nothing more than repairing broken cars with her father and hanging out with her brothers and their friends. Not far away in the busy city of Nashville, Kate Kelly is always dressed in the latest fashion, wearing clothes from her mother’s boutique and jetting around the world with her father.
When A.J. starts going to the school Kate attends, they instantly dislike each other. But as the year progresses, Kate’s brother Val is drawn to A.J., and when prom comes around, he asks her to be his date—much to his sister’s displeasure. But Kate has bigger things to think about, including the reality show Real Life. Everyone says the show is her chance to make it big. But then the producers decide to bring A.J. into the show.
As the producers of Real Life try to stir up the drama, Kate’s idea of the perfect prom spins out of control. When Kate’s life goes disastrously wrong, it is A.J. who steps up to help—no questions asked. A friendship between the two girls just might grow—but only if they both live original and stay true to whom God made them to be.
Robertson told The Christian Post that book is based off her own life before “Duck Dynasty” and afterwards.
“There’s two main characters that represent that but I think they do more than just that,” she said. “They represent every girl right now in the world that [goes] through the struggles that girls go through.”
“My mom came to me and she’s like, ‘Sadie, I think you should write fiction because I think you can relate to a whole new audience in middle school, high school and college girls,'” she said. “And at first I thought, ‘Mom, you’re crazy there’s no way I can do that,’ but I sat down with a co-author and we started talking.”
Life Just Got Real is available now at Lifeway Christian book store located at 1725 Galleria Boulevard,Franklin.
