Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Lexi keeps a low profile while her seven-year-old sister, Mac, is a pageant queen. But one day, on a dare, she swaps her baggy jeans for skinny ones, curls her hair, and throws on a little makeup. Witty narration and fun dialogue are combined with intelligent thoughts about appearance and self-worth.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

Texan high-school junior Lexi is bright, capable, and funny. She is popular, but not beautiful like her seven-year-old sister Mackenzie, whose beauty pageant activities dictate the lives of Lexi and their single mother, who is obsessed with Mac’s success. Lexi nurses an unrequited crush on classmate Logan and a desire to free Mackenzie from the pressure of the pageant circuit. When Lexi decides to “glam herself up,” she discovers firsthand that the world does indeed favor the beautiful. She also learns what’s important to her, and it’s not the shiny exterior that wins her male and maternal attention. Lexi’s outrageous rebellion at a pageant will have readers both gasping and cheering. Although didactic, it’s a fun read and marvelous revenge fantasy sure to engage most young women. Eulberg has an ear for teen dialogue and creates multidimensional characters that both embrace and defy stereotypes. Parents are flawed but human, and the only true villains are pageant administrators. Lexi’s romances resolve in the most positive ways possible, with kindness and self-respect. It may be a little too good to be true—but it sure is satisfying. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton

I hate to say it but Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is my least favorite of Elizabeth Eulberg's books. All of her previous books have ended up on my favorites list and I just can't say the same for this one. While I still enjoyed it, I find myself forgetting about it already.

Lexi was my biggest problem. She had absolutely no confidence in herself. She thought that the only way she could interact with guys was if she cracked jokes and acted like she didn't care about anything. She considered herself ugly just because she didn't wear a ton of makeup or dress super girly. I get that living in the pageant world made her feel bad about herself but it really bothers me when girls act like makeup and clothes are the only things that could make someone pretty. I wanted to slap Lexi so many times because she was just so oblivious! Also, her friends got on my nerves a bit too. One of them only added to her thoughts that makeup and clothes are all that matter and the other one got angry about nothing in particular and acted kind of bitchy. They weren't horrible, by any means, but they weren't nearly as awesome as the friends in Elizabeth Eulberg's previous books.

The story itself was a little shallow but it was entertaining. Lexi decides to transform herself so that guys will finally start to notice her. Little does she know how well it will actually work. One day as her new self and guys are falling all over her and Lexi's life completely changes. It was a little unrealistic but it made for a pretty fun story.

Oh, also, I have to mention Lexi's family and how bad they were! Oh my gosh I would have become an emancipated minor if I had her mother. She is probably one of the worst moms I have ever read about, ever.

Lexi has a great personality. She is funny and is a lot of fun to be around. Everyone likes her, but no one wants to date her. Add to that the fact that Lexi's kid sister is a beauty queen who controls all of the attention and you have one self-deprecating heroine. Lexie doesn't think she's beautiful and doesn't think she'll get the guy, until her best friend challenges her. If Lexie wants her bf Benny to take the plunge then Lexie must put some effort into her looks. Lexie dolls up and so her revenge begins. The girl with the great personality is actually pretty hot.

This book is a lot of fun. It is charming, sad in some places and the characters will frustrate you, but it is honestly an enjoyable read. Lexie is an average teenage girl. She has her two best friends, has issues with her parents and thinks a lot about boys, but she is not whiney or annoying. She is a likeable heroine, because she takes life in stride. She wants things her mom cannot afford to give her? That's cool; Lexie gets a part time job and meticulously saves her money. I like that about her.

I like Lexie, but hate her family. Her sister is spoiled and her father is a deadbeat who pretends not to be, but it is her mother who I despised. First of all, I have no respect for parents who dress their children up like adults and parade them around a stage. Second, any parent who favors one child and ignores the other does not deserve children. Lexi is marginalized and treated like second best, while her sister is treated like a princess. Lexie is forced to be apart of the pageant team, spending her free time supporting and working for her little sister. It is disgusting. Her mom doesn't support her in anyway. She just expects Lexie to take the abuse and fall in line.

This was a book of cliches. The "average" girl who no one pays any attention to. The pretty best friend and their side-kick, the gay guy.

Miss Average transforms herself into Miss Beautiful to get the attention of a boy she likes and to become one of the popular girls. Of course her plan succeeds and of course she discovers that she hates it. *Yawn*. Her old life, which she spends the first half of the book doing nothing but complaining about, is suddenly all shes ever wanted. And of course her Prince Charming in High School turns out to be an ogre in disguise. *YAWN!*

I can't really say that this book was terrible. I mean, all of the necessary components were present, but its all been done before. Done to death. In books, in tons of movies and even in song. So, do we really need another retelling?

I was hoping that the Children's Beauty Pageants would add something fresh and new to the plot. The main characters younger sister competes in beauty pageants, so that had potential. Theres plenty to work with, after all. Instead, this book turned out to be your typical whinny tale of teen anxiety and woe. The main character comes across as somewhat self centered, self absorbed and certainly self pittying. Listening to her whine and complain gets old very quickly!

Furthermore, the plot was lacking in any unexpected drama or tension. This book was very obvious and very boring. I was hoping for a fresh, funny read. This book has a great title, but really not much else going for it. If you're looking for a funny, entertaining book about the beauty pageant world, I would recommend Beauty Queens by Libba Bray.

If you absolutely must read Revenge of the Girl, I would suggest borrowing it or picking it up from the library.
