Happy Fourth of July!! I thought this book would be a great review to celebrate the holiday! I actually listened to the book as an audio book which I got in CD form from the library. Turns out I read the second book in this series years before I read the first one. I would totally recommend this book but I did find this book to be a little bit young for my age. The plot was another “woe is me I’m not popular and my family doesn’t understand me” stories. Which some people really enjoy and relate to but I moved on from that stage in my life after 8th grade. If you are a little older and this plot seemed as young to you as it seemed to me I would recommend reading the second book. The plot’s pretty easy to follow and I think its a good read for high schoolers like myself. But anything by Meg Cabot is always going to be a little saucy and a great read.
Have a wonderful Fourth of July! I may start blogging again regularly but I’m not 100% sure. Also I’m going to college in the fall eeeek I’m so excited 😀
