Book Review: The Dirt (+Giveaway)

It’s not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school—and practically the whole town.Fortunately, life is about to change forever. Lucy’s dad is getting re-married, and then she can transfer to a boarding school in Connecticut, escaping all the mean girls and the endless whispers about the Whitley family scandal. Everything is going to be perfect—as long as the wedding goes smoothly.

I was really into reading a teen book without magic and everything, and this was the reason i picked up this one. Seemed like something i would enjoy.

You can easily describe the book as combination of Gossip Girl and Mean Girls. It's so full of drama, rich teens and so much fun. The writing makes you think, you are actually watching one of those teens movies with all the necessary details to understand the characters. The fact that the story is surrounded by a mystery atmosphere makes it even better.

It's true that i didn't have anything in common with the characters. And i can't say i connected with them either. Still they felt the amount of close they needed to be for the certain story. The whole book is from Lucy's POV but you get to know her sisters pretty good too. I loved how she explained everything (without be tiring).

The end was a little disappointed mostly because i was expecting something more from the "main problem" of the book while it was solved really fast. Still it was a book that made laugh for 2 straight hours and totally made my mood. So why not?
