Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality
by Elizabeth Eulberg

For years, Lexi has been helping her mom take her little sister to almost weekly Saturday pageants, even though her sister is now only seven years old.

Though Lexi is moderately popular, thought well of by her peers, and has a couple of amazing friends, she's never really been "pretty" and hasn't even tried to be since her mother told her at a young age that she had a great personality.

She's also got a crush on the cutest guy in school whose girlfriend just happens to compete in the same pageants as her sister, so she's gotten to know him well.

When her best friend dares her to glam up for a week, she takes that dare and then things change overnight.  Now she's popular, admired, and even has a date!

Are the perks that come from being pretty worth the challenges that come with it all?  And can Lexi keep her "great personality" and avoid losing everything that matters to her?

Final thoughts:  The first quarter of the book was great.  The second quarter was ok.  The whole second half was just "meh".  The end just kind of trailed off as if a chapter or two got cut off.  I didn't like Lexi's evolution very much and her constant obsession with Logan just got annoying over time.  Mac and her mother were offensive in many ways and the ending of their part was just unfinished.  Overall, it was ok.

Rating: 3/5
