We are getting close to the end of Best I've Read 2013 and today I'm excited to be sharing a great book from one of my all time favorite authors, Elizabeth Eulberg. This book is so much fun and, as with all of Eulberg's books, is full of humor and heart. What I alwasy love about Eulberg's books is that the main characters are believable. They are girls struggling with who they are and who they want to be and over the course of the book you see them make mistakes, get stronger and become amazing young women. Plus, the books are just plain fun!
Don't mess with a girl with a Great Personality. Everybody loves Lexi. She's popular, smart, funny...but she's never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup). Lexi's sick of it. She's sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She's sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She's sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she's sick of having all her family's money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection. The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren't going to know what hit them. Because Lexi's going to play the beauty game - and she's in it to win it. (from goodreads.com)
