"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

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.Read more ›
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?
Co-authors Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan really stepped up their game from their last book, Spoiled. Spoiled is the prequel to Messy, but is not necessary to read first. One thing that improved the story was the change of narrators from Molly, who is a less interesting character, to her best friend Max, who’s complex, sarcastic and really holds the book together. Another great change from the first book was the addition of blog entries. Every once in a while, there’s an entry from Brooke’s blog that’s quite interesting and full of snarky comments and blunt, yet humorous, opinions (Brooke is obnoxious and attention craving).
Another thing I really loved about this story was the sharp, clear-cut contrast between main characters Max and Brooke. Max, leading an alternative lifestyle with green hair, is satirical and envies the celebrity population. On the other hand, we have Brooke who is, as mentioned before, snobby, annoying and living the Hollywood dream. Their unique personalities collide and will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
The humor in this book keeps the story lighthearted and fun; I found myself giggling at times. Most of this comes from Max’s witty comments and, as I stated above, the snarky blog posts that she writes.
Teenage girls looking for a fun and easy read will fall head over heels for this amazing novel. The story of two contrasting and interesting characters is what this book is all about. Go on - a fantastic read awaits you in Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s story, Messy.

This is more of a companion than a sequel to Spoiled and does not focus on Molly. Instead her best friend, Max, gets most of the spotlight along with her half-sister, Brooke. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Joana (The Boundless Booklist)
