Even if you haven't read the BLOGGER GIRL series, KIM VS THE MEAN GIRL can be read as a stand alone. But I think anyone who reads it will want to devour every book Schorr has written.
My 17-year-old daughter read this months ago for Meredith and finished it in just a few hours (as did I) and immediately fell in love with it. I haven't seen her in non-stop chatter over a book since Harry Potter and this one gave me a night of endless listening.
Whether you're an adult, a teen or middle aged you will love this book and it's followers. It's not often I've fallen in love with a series only to be gifted with a prequel to some of my favorite characters lives AFTER I've gotten to know them as adults. I admit, I was worried it would be too young for me but I got all the references (even though I definitely wasn't a teenager during these time frames) and found it to be quite 'high-school-esque' or at least from what I remember.
What I Loved-
-Absolutely everything. Seriously, the 'plan', the 'gone-wrongs', the love interests, the familiar and new faces, the writing, all of it.
-I'm a fan of Meredith so you could send me a sequel to the dictionary written by her and I'd probably love it.
What I didn't Love-
-Zero, nada, zilch, nuthin.
Would I recommend it?
Fo sho. Seriously, if you don't already have an extra set of this series in your freezer in case your house burns down you should. Get on it... what are you waiting for? They're all on Amazon now!
Meredith Schorr is a chick lit writer at it's finest.
Kim vs. the Mean Girl is such a cute book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It took me back to my own high school days, though, thankfully, I didn't have to deal with a "mean girl" like Hannah. It was interesting to see the main characters from the Blogger Girl series as high school kids. Kim is a great character, in both this book and the others, and I would love to read more about her!
Another high point of praise I have for this book is that it helped pull me out of my month-long reading slump! I had never been through a slump like that one before, and it was getting a bit depressing. But, Kim vs. the Mean Girl totally saved me! It was short enough to not be daunting, and interesting enough to keep me from putting it down.
Well-written, humorous, and a bit nostalgic, Kim vs. the Mean Girl is an excellent addition (or introduction!) to the Blogger Girl series. It's a perfect mix of "chick-lit" and YA, and is ideal for a quick, summer read. I would definitely recommend!
I don't always review YA novels, but when I do, it's because they're written by my favorite chick lit authors. Recently, Meredith Schorr published a YA prequel to her Blogger Girl series. It was fun to see what Kim and Hannah were like in high school.
As you can see on the cover, the only thing I didn't like was that it had to end. It reminded me of the Taffy Sinclair books by Betsy Haynes that I read in my preteen years, as well as Caprice Crane's Confessions of a Hater.
I enjoyed reading both Kim and Hannah's perspectives. I found myself laughing out loud at times, as well as cringing. I also enjoyed seeing Kim's friends Bridget and Jonathan as teens, as well as meeting some new characters.
Overall, it's an entertaining story that adults and teens will enjoy. There were also some good lessons that I took from it. Maybe Meredith can fit in another prequel about Kim and Hannah's college years. (Although I also look forward to a follow-up from Novelista Girl.)
Hannah has always been a bully of sorts and her behavior when she was younger doesn't shock anyone. Towards the end I really think she started to see Kim in a whole new light. Could even be a fun second book starting point!
From Hannah stealing her diary and telling the entire class her inner most secrets to Kim getting her back with the perfect revenge plan, the girls both learned a few very important lessons in life. Hannah learned that there is more to life then just money (sort of) and Kim learned that you should just let things go and ignore people who are irritating you because the more attention you give them the more they will pester you.
If you loved Blogger Girl you will love Kim vs. the Mean Girl.
