Lass Connecticut teens and their town of yoga moms chubby moms that is a actual description from the book nice uys who are also uirky and orgeous one is basically manic pixie dream boy and rare treasures among the shallow sex driven boys This is not self aware in any sense Yes the irls acknowledge that their revenge scheme is petty and cruel and they should never do it again but like I said earlier too little too late because honestly the revenge scheme is a drop in the ocean of all the shitty things oing on Unfortunately there s a lot to dislike but this will o on forever so I ll just take a moment to address the actual writing God it was awful The author has no The Horse in Celtic Culture grasp of authentic teen voice or sense of time it s like the text is exactly the same as when she started writing in 2007 but with some updated appsocial media names put in poorly The dialogue manages to be both awkwardly formal in the out of touch adult trying to talk the kids do way AND too juvenile making the characters sound like 1314 yr olds rather than 17 She also wrote in the likes like how they d probably talk but like how you shouldn t actually write since it s like annoying as hell Especially when it s not consistent The point of view switched between Mia and Justine and the chapters were very short Neither felt necessary except when it came to the romance plot lines since bothirls hide their feelingslove interests from the other for no explained reason The switching and chapter length felt sloppy and strangely paced And the chapter titlesauthor did a immicky smoothie name and recipe for each title It was cute for the first handful but for 55 chapters in only 261 pages it ot annoying uickly Especially since the recipe was just an ingredient list no uantities or directions included and in nearly every chapter the smoothie was described by title and ingredients by the irls for no purposeful reason again SHOW don t tell Especially since you already told us once Please Then there was the oddly developed yet ignored characters that could have been left out or should have been developed particularly Mia s widower dad and Justine s parents who only ever fight or watch tv her dad and sleep her mom Those could have been interesting and substantial relationships to explore SighYet another depiction of teen life reinforcing negative tropes and behaviors It s a shame I didn t really like the book but there were recipes for shakes and smoothies on every chapter so I liked that part I was predisposed to like this because I know the author the daughter of a classmate and I liked her first book My Life in Pink and Green It s always nice to have preconceived positive opinions confirmed in the reading What could be bad about a book where every chapter begins with a smoothie recipe Other than a bit of confusion with the shifting points of view this is a reat fun read This book had the potential to be a fun YA summer book like Katie Finn s Broken Hearts and Revenge series which I absolutely loved However this book was a total let down I was only interested in reading it because of the catchy title and cover art it really sparked an interest The characters had no dimension and there was no character development in either of the main characters which trust me is an issue because the main characters do not have many redeeming ualities The entire premise of this book seems to be if you re a Starflight Zero girl and you re single and not skinny you re unhappy and have nothing to live for Really I m not kidding This book is a total blah. N Mia s ex starts falling for the onlineirl there s a revenge plot just waiting to be born A A Succession of Bad Days guy who dumps airl because he thinks her thighs are too thick deserves to have his heart broken by a fake irlfriend right All s fair in love and smoothies.
