Now, I am something of a bookworm - but unfortunately have not had time to read properly. Usually, once I begin a book, I like to get properly into it, and will read it at every opportunity I get....
I picked this up to read as it looked pretty easy going, and perhaps a little funny/amusing - ideal to read as and when and break up my day.
Unfortunately - it was not... I read a mixture of books, from Harry Potter (yes I am a fan!), Chick-Lit, Narnia, Thrillers, Humour, Biographies... You name it, I will probably give it a try... This book looked as though it would be a younger chick-lit type book, but from the back it seems to be easy-going (just what I was looking for) with some humour.
This book is about a teenager who decides that she should reinvent herself to appear more popular and interesting, and in the process manages to get into a great deal of trouble with her mother (with whom she clashes) but eventually they resolve their differences to an extent.
It is about the journey of a teenager, but it doesn't seem as broad/realistic as I would have expected. I was thoroughly disappointed - or maybe my expectation from light-hearted books is higher? Either way, I won't be recommending this too heavily!!
Maybe it is aimed at a far younger audience - but it would have to be considerably younger in my opinion to be interested/kept intrigued by this plot. There just doesn't seem to be as much there as I would expect! As a result, it will get 2 dooyoo stars from me because I am sure that there are some people who will enjoy it - I unfortunately am not one of them... :-(
There are some good messages conveyed in the story - especially when looking at teenagers in relationships - but it is quite brief I feel. All in all, this book is 170 pages - a number I would normally complete in a weekend (or day if I was enjoying the book) but it took me over two weeks which should illustrate how difficult found it to be.
