Team Awkward by Katy Birchall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The brilliant sequel to The It Girl. Hilariously funny and deliciously romantic – perfect for fans of Geek Girl and Louise Rennison.
If everything Anna does is going to be seen by more than 10 million people, then she’s determined to find something that she’s really good at. Everyone else seems to have a ‘thing’ – especially the new girl at school, who’s been distracting Connor with their shared love of art. Luckily the school sports day is looming, and Anna is limbering up!
What could go wrong?
I absolutely loved The IT Girl last year and I knew I wanted to read the second in the series. I was very lucky to be sent a copy for review, thank you Egmont.
This book continues with the characters we got to know and love in the first IT girl, with a few new faces a long the way. It is funny and easy to read, exactly what you need to lighten your mood on a dull and damp weekend.
It didn't take me long to get back into the IT Girl world, Anna is as still as awkward as ever and trying to get to grips with now being 'famous' due to her father marrying an actress. There are a couple of story lines going on in this novel, Anna trying to get to grips with her fathers wedding to Helena, Helena trying to include Anna as much as possible in her big day and Anna trying to prove that she is a good role model for younger girls. She is determined to show the press she 'can' do something useful to stop them labeling her 'a waste of space.'
This is a pacey sequel that is perfect for teenagers, it will have them hooked right from the beginning. I enjoyed the different layouts within the book, some of the text is presented in the for of emails and notes.
This is a light hearted fun novel for teenagers, one that I would recommend. There is going to be a third in the series so I can't wait for that.
I would like to thank the publisher again for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
