REVENGE OF THE GIRL WITH THE GREAT PERSONALITY
Eulberg writes a wonderful tale of an ordinary girl starring in her own, ordinary story. Entertaining, engaging and above all realistic, this is a breath of fresh air for the YA market. This one’s for all of us regular girls out there.
Lexi’s long fallen into an unfortunate pattern in her family: She’s the funny one; her sister, Mackenzie, is the pretty one. Lexi spends her weekends watching 7-year-old Mackenzie compete in pageants their mother can’t afford. It’s time for a change, and Lexi and her great personality are going to make it happen.
