What. The. Heck?
I'm not sure I can keep reading. I truly hope this turns around, but at this point this book is just reinforcing all of the terrible messages that girls, teens, and women get from the media - you'll only be happy and worthy if you're just the right kind of thin and pretty. The MC is not at all likable at this point; her twin sister sounds way more interesting and likable and she's not a sucker for BS social constructs.
I really want to keep reading and give the author the benefit of the doubt. I'm a mom of three with limited time; I'm not sure I can waste my precious reading time wading through the rest of this hoping I'll find a gem tucked in a corner of this book somewhere.
Coco Franks is a lucky girl, not because her family is suddenly uprooted and headed for a life in the middle of nowhere but because they have a strong family unit.
Coco will face some really difficult times. Some will be created by her and some will be forced on her because sometimes life is difficult, especially when false friends enter the picture.
Thanks to the people who know and love her best, Coco is going to be fine.
Her parents get this ridiculous idea that she (and her siblings, but never mind them) must be uprooted from her now 'perfect' life and dumped in some back-of-nowhere rural Australian locality. Horses, leeches and other "unsavouries" included.
Through this 'trauma', Coco eventually (and I do mean eventually, as she's pretty good at being hard headed and pouty) has opportunity to learn that good friends don't necessarily dress in the latest fashions, and maybe the fact she's had to lie to keep 'in' with her new group could be a hint to look a little deeper when it comes to choosing her friends and life priorities. But then again, if she could just convince her parents that the relocation was a complete mistake, she could leave behind the eye-roll-worthy country folk and their bumpkin ways and get on with her life. Maybe.
This was a fun story I felt I could comfortably recommend to young readers in the target demographic. (And enjoyed myself. :) ) Although Coco can put on a mother-sized turn, I think most tweens and young teens would be able to see the humour lurking in the shadows of her tanti-cloud. With Coco's choices come more serious consequences, which enables young readers an opportunity to take away some valuable perspectives on friendships and family.
