“New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Lloyd Layton will know I exist. He once said three whole words to me, so this is obviously progress. If I don’t get a proper conversation out of him soon, then I’ll take my top off and streak through the cafeteria, because nobody could fail to notice these boobs.
2. I will not get expelled for streaking through the cafeteria.”
Those are the words that begin her mission.
Chessie is fourteen, not pretty enough, and very much in love. Lloyd Layton is hot, popular, and unaware of Chessie’s existence.
Her goal is clear: to get Lloyd to love her as much as she loves him, and she has exactly one year to do it.
As Chessie’s obsession with Lloyd reaches boiling point and she starts to spin a web of lies that spiral out of control, Lloyd turns out to be not quite the prince she thought he was. Can Chessie avoid the gathering storm before things go too far?


Absolutely hilarious and witty, Not Pretty Enough had me at the first page. It’s one of the funniest books I’ve read this year.

Chessy was such a great character. She was so clumsy and completely accident prone. She made some really funny mistakes and her decisions in general made me wince. I feel as if I know her in real life, Jaimie Admans’ described her in such a way that I got to know her for her personality. Sometimes I find that I would only recognise a character based on appearance but this wasn’t the case. Chessy was really easy to picture and her actions were very realistic.

Not Pretty Enough was a very short book (under 200 pages). But hey – I’m not complaing. It kind of added to my enjoyment of the story. It wasn’t dragged out or description less. Perfect length. I think it may become one of my go to books when I want something light and fun to read.

I am so, so glad there is going to be a sequel. The only bad thing is I have to wait unitl next year. I could see this becoming one of those really funny teen series’, sort of like The Princess Diaries or the Georgia Nicholson series. Not Pretty Enough would without a doubt be a series I continue, especially if all the books are as funny and great as this one, I’d like to see more of Chessie’s story!

If you are looking for a great summery read – look no further. Not Pretty Enough is just that. Light, fun, short and funny, it makes for great reading. I would recommend this to teens and up, especially someone in need of a fun read.

4/5 stars!
