High school sophomore, Kim Long, is no stranger to the “mean girl” antics of Queen Bee Hannah Marshak. When Hannah steals Kim’s diary and in front of the entire class reads personal (not to mention humiliating) entries Kim wrote about her crush, Jonathan, Kim vows to enact revenge.
Kim and her loyal
best friend, Bridget, come up with the perfect plan to put the evil
Hannah in her place once and for all. But will their scheming have the
desired effect of getting even, or will Hannah emerge more celebrated by
her peers than ever?
Kim vs. The Mean Girl can be read as a
young adult standalone novel, but it is also a prequel to the popular
Blogger Girl adult romantic comedy series and is set in 2000. Told in
the duo perspectives of teenage Kim and Hannah, fans of the series will
get an inside look into Kim’s early passion for reading, writing (and
Jonathan) and find out why Hannah is so darn mean.
Girl we meet the irrepressible Kim Long and her nemesis Hannah Marshak.
Kim Vs. the Mean Girl takes us back to high school with Kim and Hannah
101 in this delightful prequel. I gobbled it up in one byte…er, I mean
bite (this is the era before a cell phone was in every backpack). When
Kim declares war on Hannah, it takes some unexpected, and at times
amusing, turns, and though the enemies don’t emerge as friends, or even
frenemies, they each come away the better for it. A fun read for all
ages." Eileen Goudge, New York Times best-selling author.
What a fun read! I loved Kim in Blogger Girl and it is fun to go back in time and see what life was like for Kim going to high school with Hannah. It really did play out just the way that I thought in would in my mind.
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.
This was a fun read from beginning to end, and going a long with the theme of younger characters, I will be picking a Shirley Temple. Delish!
Such a fun book, highly anticipated by all of us Blogger Girl fans! 5 wine glasses all the way! I wish it had been longer!
