Will the Real Abi Saunders Please Stand Up
by Sara Hantz


Review by D.R.Rosensteel

Okay, I’m not normally into romance novels. However, Sara Hantz has written one that makes even guys like me take notice — her main character is a female kickboxer! I’m not talking Tae-Bo-in-your-living-room-to-firm-an... ...more

Abi Saunders may be a skilled kickboxer but she struggles with confidence issues outside the dojo. Her friends have been a buffer, until an unexpected stint as a stunt double thrusts her into the spotlight. I felt for Abi in this fish-out-of-water tale and when she starts throwing punches of her... ...more

By Barb May 23, 2014

Will The Real Abi Saunders Please Stand Up by Sara Hantz is a YA novel that caught me by surprise. Most YA books I read are usually dystopian, or other strong types of stories. Though I have read Sara Hantz before, I did not expect to love the story as much as I did. This was a simple sweet, ente... ...more

I’m going to give this a solid 3.5 stars.


I enjoyed this book. It was a fast, fun read that I was able to dive into and finish in one sitting. I really liked the fact that it was about a kickboxing champion. That is a sport that you don’t read a lot about in YA and I found that part of the novel i... ...more

By Ciara B May 09, 2014

Sara Hantz made it impossible for anyone not to fall in love with this book. Abi is a super-awesome-kickboxing-champion, and how could you not love a female kick-but kick-boxer, she has a stutter which makes her very self conscious and shy. I think her stutter makes her that much more awesome bec... ...more

Life has a way of getting sort of messy sometimes but, miraculously, things often work out better than you might expect. Originally, my spot on this tour was scheduled for May 5th but, having managed to become, shall we say, a bit disorganized, I needed to ask for a postponement and the tour orga... ...more

I received a free digital advanced copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review.

The dream of Hollywood glamor can be a strong one. I found it entirely believable that Abi would get caught up in the chance to belong in that glittering world. For someone who has been an outsider all of her... ...more

By Jasmyn May 12, 2014

I fell in love with Abi Saunders. I fell in love with Tilly Watson as well, it just took a lot longer to get there. The contrast between their two lives is striking, but at heart they are still both teenagers trying to fit in. When Abi gets the chance of her lifetime to be Tilly's stunt double, s... ...more

"I received a copy of this book I'm exchange for an honest review"

First I should say that I read this book in one afternoon. It is an easy read, not flawless, but believable. The MC Abi Saunders is a kick butt kick boxer, who takes a chance and decides to try her hand at stunt doubling. I should... ...more

By Amanda May 09, 2014

Sara Hantz wrote a story I finished in one sitting! I loved this book. We live Abi's life with her as she kicks tail as an amazing kickboxer. I'm not talking about at home video kicking it in your living room kickboxing. I'm talking she is in the ring throwing down with others and winning. This... ...more

By Daydream Books August 12, 2016

I am the kind of reader who actually goes against the grain and will actually want to read a book that has mixed reviews as opposed to all glowing. I tend to enjoy books that cause opposing views as long as they are well written and not too many grammatical errors so I wasn't sure what to expect... ...more

By Denise March 25, 2014

What I love about this book: Again, I'm a sucker for books about fame. When Abi first entered her audition, I was hooked. Not only that, but I love to read about characters who are extremely talented and have trained at something for most of their lives. I went into this book knowing next to noth... ...more

By Jordy June 19, 2014


This book was really good, and had a thoughtful story line. Although the ending was quite predictable, I still liked it all the same. Definitely would recommend to a friend who just wanted a book to read on a trip, but it didn't feel like favorite book material. By favorite book material I mean y... ...more

About the author

Sara Hantz

Sara Hantz has been a prolific reader all her life, but it wasn't until she was an adult that she got the writing bug. She writes contemporary adult and young adult fiction and her debut book The Second Virginity of Suzy Green made the prestigious list 'New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age'. Sara lectured for many years before deciding to devote more time to her writing and working in the family hospitality business. She has two grown-up children and when not writing, working, or online with her friends, she spends more time than most people she knows watching TV - in fact if TV watching was an Olympic sport she'd win gold.
