Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository

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.
I feel like I've been waiting for this book without knowing it. I mean, sure, I was able to relate a lot with Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but he's a boy with deeper issues. This book has a normal wallflower with normal problems, and I think a lot of girls will identify with Lexi. I can't wait to read about her revenge!

  3. Lexi sounds like the type of protagonist a LOT of girls will be able to relate to - I remember feeling pretty similarly in high school. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention - it has most definitely been added to my TBR!

    My WoW pick this week is Six-Gun Snow White!
