However, I did like how the stepmother was actually nice for once! I hate how books often portray step- mothers as mean, evil souls, and that isn't always the case. So, that was good. On to the not-so-good...
Chelsea finds out that a) her dad has a girlfriend, b) that said girlfriend is now his fiancee, and c) Her dad has a new job and Chelsea, her dad, and his new fiancee are moving.
OK, how would you NOT notice your dad has a girlfriend? Wouldn't there be a change in his personality or his routine? Wouldn't he be gone more often? It just seemed inplausible to me.
Then, in just 3 days, with a little lotion, makeup, and new clothes, Chelsea transforms from "geeky and gawky into the hottest girl at her new school!" Right. And pigs will fly. It sounds pretty cool, but acne doesn't just evaporate (at least not that fast). And Chelsea was gawky, so, how does she turn graceful over night? The clothes part I kinds believe.
None of this book seemed plausible, and the writing (and editing) was not good. As a result, I stopped reading this book. Maybe it gets better. I don't know.
But, I have to judge this book on what I read. 4/10 stars, and, as far as I can tell, for all ages.
If you read this book and enjoyed it, let me know in the comments!
