Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg is Munch-Worthy

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality

A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom.

Don't mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

Everybody loves Lexi. She's popular, smart, funny...but she's never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).

Lexi's sick of it. She's sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She's sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She's sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she's sick of having all her family's money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.

The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren't going to know what hit them. Because Lexi's going to play the beauty game—and she's in it to win it.

I'm one of those people who is beyond horrified by the idea of beauty pageants, especially for children. The image of little girls with fake tans and false eyelashes frankly terrifies me. So clearly, that's why I want to read this book—to overcome my fear.

But in all seriousness, this seems like it's going to be a fantastic story, full of laughs, a sure to be heartwarming personal journey, and, of course, beauty pageant horrors.

Releases March 1, 2013 from Point.
