How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston
Kacey Simon is the popular girl of Marquette Middle School. All’s going well for her until her three best friends turn on her after she gets braces and glasses, forcing her to team up with an old accomplice and a new student to win them back. While the story flows fairly well, the structure is solid, and the wording of the book is easy to understand, the cons of this book definitely outweigh the pros. The characters are unrealistic and pretentious, the story, though it moves at a good pace throughout the novel, is flat and predictable, and the first person point of view really makes you start to severely dislike the protagonist, Kacey, as the way she thinks and acts are many times irritating and impractical.
Overall, this book has little to no appeal, and though there are interesting parts included in the novel, in the long run it is not worth reading and falls flat in many areas. Lauren B. Teen Reviewer
