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.
