High school sophomore, Kim Long, is no stranger to the “mean girl” antics of Queen Bee Hannah Marshak. When Hannah steals Kim’s diary and in front of the entire class reads personal (not to mention humiliating) entries Kim wrote about her crush, Jonathan, Kim vows to enact revenge.
Kim and her loyal best friend, Bridget, come up with the perfect plan to put the evil Hannah in her place once and for all. But will their scheming have the desired effect of getting even, or will Hannah emerge more celebrated by her peers than ever?
Kim vs. the Mean Girl can be read as a young adult standalone novel, set in 2000, but is also a prequel to the popular Blogger Girl adult romantic comedy series. Told in the dual perspectives of teenage Kim and Hannah, fans of the series will get an inside look into Kim’s early passion for reading, writing (and Jonathan), and find out why Hannah is so darn mean.
I am such a fan of Meredith Schorr, and was thrilled to read her latest installment. This is a prequel to BLOGGER GIRL, another novel I highly recommend from this author, and it was simply cute and fun to read. I love that we got both sides, told in dual POV from both Kim and Hannah, and it gave us more insight on characters that I grew to love in BLOGGER GIRL. I especially enjoyed getting Hannah’s perspective and seeing what made her tick and actually a different side of her as well. I breezed through this young adult read in just over a day and would definitely recommend.
