Titles to Tempt You & Giveaway: REVENGE OF THE GIRL WITH THE GREAT PERSONALITY, by Elizabeth Eulberg
REVENGE OF THE GIRL WITH THE GREAT PERSONALITY
by Elizabeth Eulberg
A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom.
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)
Elizabeth Eulberg does it again! Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is an authentic look at the struggles of a typical teen trying to find herself and figure out who she is. The relationships are realistic and believable. The ups and downs Lexi goes through with her friends, her family and with herself are very relate-able. There were several situations throughout this book that I went through as a teen making Lexi’s story hit home for me in many ways.
I don’t know how Elizabeth Eulberg does it but time and again she is able to portray authentic teen experiences. Many of the teen books dealing with boyfriends and high school problems are so hard for me to read because the characters are all “oh my god” and “whatever” but not in Elizabeth’s books. She is able to develop characters and relationships between families and friends that are so genuine and believable. And the fact that she brought in the whole glitz pageant scene in her book just makes it all the more awesome!
