Editorial Reviews

Review

"I love the way Heather and Jessica write. They're so funny, and so fashion-y, which is incredibly rare."—Mindy Kaling, Emmy-nominated writer, actress, and New York Times bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

"Spoiled is soapy, funny and full of the Fug Girls' trademark Hollywood snark. I want to read the sequel NOW."—Megan McCafferty, New York Times bestselling author of Bumped and the Jessica Darling series

"The companion novel to Spoiled is a treat. On one level, there are enough witty observations and laugh-out-loud lines to make this about as much fun as you can have reading a book. But, at its heart, this is an engaging, well-plotted story about two girls who are not as different as they seem..."—VOYA

"Satirizing Hollywood is a time-honored literary pastime, but timely satirical touches keep things fresh...For most of the lowlife celebrities skewered, fame will be justly fleeting, but this novel should have a longer shelf life, thanks to a cast of complex characters who offer ample evidence that, F. Scott Fitzgerald notwithstanding, the rich and famous are like you and me."—Kirkus

"This engaging, entertaining follow-up companion to Spoiled (2011) features plenty of snark, style, and Hollywood-centric satire, but also sympathy for the girls as they navigate familiar issues like wanting parental approval and pursuing their dreams."—Booklist

"This story of hidden identities and love triangles is a fun and fast read... All of the characters have well-developed personalities, and teens will want to be along for any future adventures."—SLJ

About the Author

Heather Cocks is a die-hard sports fan, a Leo, an ex-reporter, a Notre Dame grad, a dual citizen of the U.S. and U.K., a sandwich enthusiast, and a former producer for America's Next Top Model. Jessica Morgan is a Southern California native and UCLA alumna who has produced reality shows ranging from Growing Up Gotti to the docu-series 30 Days. She collects shoes, books, and unpaid parking tickets. Both ladies live in Los Angeles, California and watch almost everything on the CW.

Together, Heather and Jessica skewer celebrity fashion crimes on their popular blog, Go Fug Yourself, which draws millions of monthly readers and made Entertainment Weekly's Must List. Their dispatches from the front rows are routinely the most-read pieces on New York magazine's Web site during Fashion Week. Messy is the sequel to Spoiled, and this is their second novel for young adults.

I hope there's a TV series, or 3rd book - or more from the authors.

I bought this book because I had read Spoiled, and liked it well enough to keep reading about the crazy lives of Hollywood teenagers.

Messy is a fun follow up to the Fug Girls' Spoiled, and continues on with Brooke Berlin and her half-sister Molly.

Format: Hardcover
First Impressions: The authors first book, Spoiled, will never make it to the top of my all-time favorite books, but I read it late last summer and it was a fun summer-time read. That's basically what I was looking for when I picked up my copy of Messy. It is summer and I'm out of school until August and I wanted to read a book that didn't require me to think too much.

First 50 Pages: I thought that Messy was a sequel to Spoiled, but not so much. I would classify it as a companion novel and I don't really think that you need to read Spoiled in order to enjoy this book. I would also say that Messy and Spoiled are more fun to read than anything else. They aren't terribly long and either would make for a nice afternoon at the beach. When I finished Messy I definitely think I liked it more than Spoiled, probably because it had a new narrator. I was never crazy about one of the old narrators, Molly, and she doesn't have such a huge role in this book.

Characters & Plot: Like I stated before, this book is just plain fun to read. The plot is very light and easy-going and it doesn't require much thought. This time around, Messy is narrated by Brooke and Max, who is Molly's best friend. Brooke is slightly obnoxious and she craves attention. Max is much more likable, but both have big dreams of making it into the spotlight. That is basically what this book is about; the race for fame and fortune.

The funny thing is, is that neither girl really likes one another, yet they end up working together in this book for the pursuit of their dreams. Max however, is the true main character. She is snarky and hilarious at times and is willing to do just about anything to get the money to move to New York City, even if it means she has to put up with Brooke.

I really enjoyed 'Spoiled' but I REALLY enjoyed 'Messy'. It's a super clever follow up, and refreshing to see more character development and snarky Hollywood inside life that every teen dreams of being part of. I hope there's a TV series, or 3rd book - or more from the authors. I read it in two sittings over one weekend because I wanted to know what happens next -- and that's a RARE find. 5 stars!

Second books can often suffer from sequel-itis, causing them to not live up to the first. This is not the case with MESSY. I'm not saying it's better than SPOILED, which I also loved, but having Max as an aspiring writer dealing all the creative fits and starts and frustrations and excitement really hit home for me in how completely accurate it is.

As much as I liked that SPOILED stayed within and fully explored the confines of the elite Los Angeles high school where celebrity spawn seek to spawn celebrity, I was fascinated that MESSY too us onto sets and into auditions. MESSY is utterly delightful as summer, fall, winter, or spring read.

Dare we hope for a third installment, Fug Girls?

Messy is a juicy, hilarious young adult novel that will appeal to anyone who's ever wished for a body double (or blogger double). Cocks and Morgan follow up Spoiled with a little taste of what it's like being Brooke Berlin, daughter of Hollywood superstar Brick Berlin, who wants a little taste of fame for herself and knows just the way to do it: blogging! She hires green-haired Max McCormack, friend of her half-sister Molly, who is more than happy to escape her horrible job at vegetarian restaurant Fu'd. Enter crushes, both dim-witted and witty, and the sparks fly as Max finds herself succeeding at the career she mosts wants, writing, but having to embody the voice of spoiled Brooke. I raced through Messy and didn't want it to end. Brick Berlin is once again masterfully oblivious, and Brooke's mean girl trying to take over the world persona is alternately ridiculous and charming. If you haven't read Spoiled, I recommend reading it first, although you don't have to to appreciate Messy. Bloggers, you'll surely see at least a little bit of yourself in Brooke's and Max's joy in seeing their words being read, and horror when they've been taken the wrong way. Bring this book, and lots of sunscreen, to the beach!

I bought this book because I had read Spoiled, and liked it well enough to keep reading about the crazy lives of Hollywood teenagers. I found I could not put Messy down, and thought it was better written than the first book.

Messy is a fun follow up to the Fug Girls' Spoiled, and continues on with Brooke Berlin and her half-sister Molly. But while Spoiled was mainly about Brooke and Molly, this one's about Brooke and her secret "blogographer," Max, Molly's best friend. It's a great YA novel, that's also a quick, fun, and very current read for not so YAs as well. Great lessons about character, honesty and friendship are sneakily inserted into a very entertaining story of young starlets and life in Hollywood. Honestly, I was hesitant to read Spoiled, because I'm way past YA age, but it was on sale, and I love the Fug Girls, so I got it. Then once I read it, I liked it so much, I had to read Messy too. Truly, lots of fun.
