Lexi has never been one of “those” girls. She’s the girl with the great personality. Everyone tells her so, but let’s be honest: sometimes a girl wants to be more than smart, funny, and nice. She’s never had a boyfriend or even been out on a date. It’s a little hard to do that when she spends most of her weekends and nights, when she isn’t working, at her little sister’s beauty pageants or sewing the outfits for them. However, all that is about to change, because Lexi is going to start playing the game. The beautiful people aren’t going to know what hit them. It’s time to find out what happens when the girl who’s smart, funny, and nice adds pretty to her bag of tricks.
While you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, you should judge one by its title, which is exactly what I did with Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality. I knew nothing about this book or Elizabeth Eulberg prior to cracking the spine. I only knew it had an awesome title. That being said, I enjoyed the book. It was somewhat reminiscent of the movie “Mean Girls.” My only complaint was the character of Lexi’s mom. I still don’t know if I should feel bad for, pity, or just hate her mom.
Rated: Moderate. There are a handful of instances of mild language, with one or two instances of slightly stronger language. Lexi has a friend who is gay and he has a boyfriend throughout part of the book. There are a few instances of teenagers kissing, nothing too intense, and one instance where characters discuss sex, but it is not detailed or graphic.
