Description de l'ouvrage

1 mars 2013
A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom.

Don't mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

Everybody loves Lexi. She's popular, smart, funny...but she's never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).

Lexi's sick of it. She's sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She's sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She's sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she's sick of having all her family's money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.

The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren't going to know what hit them. Because Lexi's going to play the beauty game - and she's in it to win it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely not Elizabeth Eulberg's best 17 avril 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I hate to say it but Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is my least favorite of Elizabeth Eulberg's books. All of her previous books have ended up on my favorites list and I just can't say the same for this one. While I still enjoyed it, I find myself forgetting about it already.

Lexi was my biggest problem. She had absolutely no confidence in herself. She thought that the only way she could interact with guys was if she cracked jokes and acted like she didn't care about anything. She considered herself ugly just because she didn't wear a ton of makeup or dress super girly. I get that living in the pageant world made her feel bad about herself but it really bothers me when girls act like makeup and clothes are the only things that could make someone pretty. I wanted to slap Lexi so many times because she was just so oblivious! Also, her friends got on my nerves a bit too. One of them only added to her thoughts that makeup and clothes are all that matter and the other one got angry about nothing in particular and acted kind of bitchy. They weren't horrible, by any means, but they weren't nearly as awesome as the friends in Elizabeth Eulberg's previous books.

The story itself was a little shallow but it was entertaining. Lexi decides to transform herself so that guys will finally start to notice her. Little does she know how well it will actually work. One day as her new self and guys are falling all over her and Lexi's life completely changes. It was a little unrealistic but it made for a pretty fun story.

Oh, also, I have to mention Lexi's family and how bad they were! Oh my gosh I would have become an emancipated minor if I had her mother. She is probably one of the worst moms I have ever read about, ever. She had two daughters but she really only seemed to care about one and it wasn't Lexi. Every thought revolved around pageants even though they had no money for them. There's one point in the book where I really probably would have murdered her if she had been my mom. And Lexi's little sister came across as this huge spoiled brat for most of the book but by the end I did like her.

One other flaw I had with Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality was the ending. Things seemed very unresolved and I was left wondering what happened. The ending worked but it's not what I wanted at all. It just bothers me when things are left hanging.

Overall, if you're a fan of Elizabeth Eulberg, check out Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality. However, if you've never read any of her other books, I'd recommend starting with one of them rather than this one.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Train Wreck on the Child Pageant Circuit 25 août 2013
Par Tammy Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Let's meet Lexi. Lexi is a complex individual. She has a whole subscription of issues. While she is not unattractive, she does not take any care for her personal appearance choosing to wear baggy clothes and her hair in a pony tail. She has not taken an interest in how she looks since her mother told her when she was younger that she wasn't pretty.

"Sweetie, pageants are for girls like your sister. You see how pretty those girls are. You'd be much better off concentrating on something your good at, like telling jokes. Everybody thinks you're so funny. You've got a great personalty, Lex. There's no need for you to try be pretty. You've got my genes, so no decent pageant gown would fit over your hips."

Lexi's mom is a pageant mom, but the worst kind of pageant mom. Lexi's parents got divorced and her mom felt empty. She is using the pageant circuit as a way to fill the hole in her life. The problem is her family doesn't have much money and the pageants are expensive and a drain on the family budget they don't need. Every time Lexi tries to bring it up, her mother won't even talk about it. She chooses to look at life through rose colored glasses or living life as if on stage. She always has her pageant smile in place and life is wonderful.

Mackenzie is Lexi's 7 year old sister, the pageant queen, or rather the tiara toting tiny terror. They all live in Mackenzie's world and Mac is a 7 year old diva, hell to be around when she's throwing a tantrum. Nothing can interfere with Lexi's mom's pursuit of a crown for Mackenzie and the prize money. The only trouble is, Mac never wins big. She never wins enough to even cover the entrance fees.

And Lexi is only wanted by her mother and sister in as much as she can be useful to them. She is Mac's seamstress and gopher and anything else they need.

The only bright spot in all this pageantry madness is Logan. He is one of the handsome, popular boys, he's on the football team and he's dating Alyssa, the reigning queen of the pageant circuit. And he happens to be a really nice guy, so, naturally Lexi has a crush on him, but how can she compete?

She is not one of the popular kids and only has two real friends, Bennie, a teddy bear of a guy and Cam, a little spit fire. Lexi is trying to get Bennie to take a chance and put himself out there. He has always been picked on because of his size and he has come out of the closet, but not to his family. He wants Lexi to take more interest in her looks convinced she would find romance herself. So, they start to negotiate. Bennie will talk to his crush if Lexi wears a dress to school and some make-up. Lexi agrees, but Bennie has to ask him for coffee and such. They both keep upping the stakes.

Lexi transforms herself into an A crowd clone on a dare, but finds that she really does feel better about herself. She starts dating Taylor, who is also the hottest guy in school, but she still has Logan on the mind and she can't figure out if Taylor likes her for her personality or if he only became interested once she made her transformation. And then she's not sure how she feels about him either.

Things seem to be looking up for Lexi, but at what cost? Is it better to have people like you for how you look or what you're like? Does Lexi get the boy of her dreams or the boy that she needs.

I did really like the book, couldn't put it down in fact, and was up until 3am again to finish it. It only took three or four days to read. But I will warn you, if you're looking for a lighthearted romantic romp this isn't it. I do look forward to seeing what Ms. Eulberg will come up with next.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book is a lot of fun! 6 mars 2013
Par BookGeek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
3.5 Stars

Lexi has a great personality. She is funny and is a lot of fun to be around. Everyone likes her, but no one wants to date her. Add to that the fact that Lexi's kid sister is a beauty queen who controls all of the attention and you have one self-deprecating heroine. Lexie doesn't think she's beautiful and doesn't think she'll get the guy, until her best friend challenges her. If Lexie wants her bf Benny to take the plunge then Lexie must put some effort into her looks. Lexie dolls up and so her revenge begins. The girl with the great personality is actually pretty hot.

This book is a lot of fun. It is charming, sad in some places and the characters will frustrate you, but it is honestly an enjoyable read. Lexie is an average teenage girl. She has her two best friends, has issues with her parents and thinks a lot about boys, but she is not whiney or annoying. She is a likeable heroine, because she takes life in stride. She wants things her mom cannot afford to give her? That's cool; Lexie gets a part time job and meticulously saves her money. I like that about her.

I like Lexie, but hate her family. Her sister is spoiled and her father is a deadbeat who pretends not to be, but it is her mother who I despised. First of all, I have no respect for parents who dress their children up like adults and parade them around a stage. Second, any parent who favors one child and ignores the other does not deserve children. Lexi is marginalized and treated like second best, while her sister is treated like a princess. Lexie is forced to be apart of the pageant team, spending her free time supporting and working for her little sister. It is disgusting. Her mom doesn't support her in anyway. She just expects Lexie to take the abuse and fall in line. I have never been supportive of open rebellion, the way I supported Lexie. I wanted her mom brought low.

This book is entertaining, but not genius. I saw every twist and turn coming a mile away. Not a single action taken by the characters surprised me. The great thing is that I didn't care. I just really liked reading Lexi'a journey.

It doesn't get four stars or higher, because I did not like the ending. It wasn't a horrible ending, but a lot seemed unresolved. What is Lexie going to do about Tyler? When will Benny and Lexie realize that they were awful friends to Cam and make amends? What about Lexie's relationship with her parents? Have they learned their lesson? Will they evolve? Will Lexie simply have to leave her parents behind?

My final thought is that there is nothing wrong with putting on a little make-up or wearing fancy clothes. I like make-up and I have been known to splurge on a pretty dress. If you decide to be what the author refers to as a "glam girl" that is your right. Not every girl who dresses up, does that to impress anyone or to gain the attention of the opposite sex. Also, not every girl who puts on some foundation and eyeliner is going to be the sexiest girl in the school. Lexie puts on a dress and the entire school population is stumbling all over themselves, because wow she's pretty. Have you actually seen a pretty girl without make-up? She is still very pretty. So, for everyone to be like "OMG!" just because she put down her hair and put on some make-up, I found it wrong and misleading. Sixteen year old girls, who feel the way Lexie feels, are going to read this. It is not ok for them to believe that just putting on an expensive shirt and some eyeliner is going to make all the boys fall in line.

Beauty comes from within. Everyone has to learn to love themselves, before they can expect someone else to love them. That is something my mother said to teenage me as I struggled with body issues and the fact that I am not the most attractive girl. She was right. I think by the end of this book, Lexie would agree with my mom's sage old wisdom.

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg

4.5 stars

Lexi is funny, popular, and smart... but she's never been when of those girls. You know the beautiful ones? The ones that boys hold doors open for, whistle at, and flirt with. She's always just been the girl with the great personality. She stopped caring about her appearance and sees no point in competing with her beautiful sister, Mackenzie. Mackenzie is what every girl strives to be and she's only seven. When her and her best friend start to make deals about her changing her appearance she becomes the girl that she's always wanted to be. But is it what she wanted? This book was amazing. I sped through it in one day. It's been a while since I picked up a girly YA contemporary. I'm so glad I picked up this one though. It was worth it in so many ways. I came across this book on a blog and when reading the review I thought, "This sounds awesome and something I could relate to." I think we've all felt like the girl that only had the great personality. Lexi's discovery of herself is such an inspiration. It was easy to relate to and I sped through all of the drama that reminds me so much of myself.

The main female character is Lexi. Lexi is exactly as she's described, but she's also super sarcastic. I happen to love sarcastic heroines, especially when they are smart and have good quips and logic to back up what they are saying. Lexi is incredibly brave for all the stuff she had to put up with. I teared up a little bit at one part, but my reasons for being a huge softy are best kept secret.

Kick-Butt Heroine Scale: 9

The main male characters are Taylor and Logan. A bit of a love triangle, but I enjoyed it and was satisfied with Lexi's decision in the end. Out of the two boys Taylor was most definitely my favorite and I never swooned over Logan like Lexi did. Maybe it's because I was like her friends and thought she needed to drop him like a hat.

Swoon Worthy Scale: Taylor-8 Logan- 3

The Villain- This really made me cry, because I knew it would happen. I had that sneaking suspicion the closer we got to the climax and I was sad that I was right. It was totally unfair to Lexi and Mackenzie as well.

Villain Scale: 8.5

Mackenzie comes off as such a spoiled brat, but towards the end of the book we see the real Mackenzie. Not the makeup and tiara-wearing Mackenzie, but the little seven-year-old that just wants to have fun. Benny and Cam are great friends and their whole dynamic felt like a real friendship. Benny was my favorite though because he never fell to make me laugh, but Cam was always there even when she wasn't.

Character Scale: 9.5

This is a very strong character driven novel. It worked well for me because Eulberg has such a brilliant writing style. I was entranced from page one to the ending. I'm so glad I decided to read Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality. The ending though was slightly disappointing. While we did get a lot of closure for events, I also wonder what happened to their mom and their relationship afterward. Even though there wasn't much revenge there was a very satisfying showdown. This book reminds me of The DUFF. I don't want to make comparisons but it made me feel the same way. A book that was just like me and that I could relate to. Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is a brilliant novel with great characters, drama, and a lesson.

Cover Thoughts: The cover is absolutely gorgeous. I love the simplicity and how easily it fits the story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Short and...not sweet? 4 mai 2013
Par Erin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I couldn't write a review immediately after reading this book because I honestly couldn't decide what to make of it. On some levels, it was good--it was a fast read, funny at times, an interesting connection to the pageant world for anyone who's seen Toddlers&Tiaras, and explored some emotional issues that a teenager or someone who works with teens could easily connect to.

But...it wasn't entirely believable. In the real world, yes, someone could be friends with a lot of guys and not date anyone, but that doesn't necessarily make them "popular" as the book's summary describes. In fact, that kind of girl usually has a hard time making friends with other girls. And adding a little make-up and the right kind of clothes doesn't suddenly get you a guy and "in." I sort of hated that this was the lesson being portrayed, even if it was later revealed that it wasn't just the make-up that got Lexi the guy. It's just that essentially what this book seems to say is that you need make-up and pretty clothes to make you feel confident enough to have that great personality that then gets you the guy you want.

Plus...and this is what swung it from four to three stars for me, the ending sucked. Majorly. Just dropped us off a cliff with nothing really resolved except how Lexi feels about herself. And even that's not entirely resolved.

General summary: Lexi is emotionally scarred and overlooked in favor of her younger sister, who's been chained to pageants since babyhood. Lexi refuses to make any effort with clothing, hair, etc., until in her attempt to get a friend together with a guy, she finds the tables turned on her. She starts wearing make-up and cute clothes, gets in with the in crowd and gets one of the 'it' guys, but has to figure out not only if this is really what she wants, but also if she can take anymore of being her younger sister's cheerleader as well as the disappointing daughter in her mom's eyes.

I don't know, it was okay, but nothing amazing.
