Number of pages: 303
This book was just as good as the first one! There was still tons of name dropping which I loved!
Almost Famous focused more on outside forces trying to divide the Inner Circle (IC) from the rest of the school instead of the girls fighting one and another.
In the beginning, Mac has a sleepover with Emily, Coco, and Becks. The girls prank their nemesis over iChat and afterwards they forget to turn off the iChat, and their enemy finds out a bunch of secrets that the girls spill about themselves.
Ruby, the girls’ enemy, posts the audio clips of the girls online for their entire school to see and the IC becomes immediate outcasts. The girls must now follow Ruby’s bidding to get back on her side and the schools. Mac has to be Ruby’s personal assistant, Emily has to dress up as a grungy boy, Coco has to teach one of Ruby’s friend’s to surf, and Becks is the water girl for the dance team she was once captain of.
Ruby makes the girls suffer the consequences for a week and at the schools’ ExtravaBAMSa she is supposed to reveal that the girls are actually quite nice and sincere after all.
Does this really happen? I’m not going to spoil that you’ll have to read it for yourself! 😉
This book was also left on a bit of a cliff hanger so I can’t wait to read the next one!
The underlying theme in this book was internet safety and bullying which is becoming an ever-increasing problem in today’s society with teens. I really liked how Zoey Dean tackled these issues without clearly stating “Hey! Be safe on the Internet and don’t bully people!”
Overall, a great quick and easy read, and I can’t wait to read the final installment!
See you soon!
