Title: Geek Magnet
Author: Kieran Scott
Date Released: March 3, 2009
Pages: 308
Rating: 2.5 out of 5

Description:
See, KJ is super nice, smart, pretty, the stage manager of her high school's spring musical, Grease...and a total geek magnet.She's like the geek pied piper of Washington High, drawing every socially clueless guy in a five-mile radius. If only Cameron Richardson, star of the basketball team and hottest guy in school, would follow her around and worship her the way her entourage of dorks do.

Enter Tama Gold, queen of the popular crowd, star of Grease, and solution to all of KJ's problems. She insists that KJ is too nice, and the nice girl never gets the guy. Tama's ready to help KJ get cruel, ditch the dorks, and win Cameron's heart. But is KJ?

Review:
For the record, I personally think that description was horrible. Really preppy and makes me want to barf, but anyway...
Normally I don't read this kind of girly books about high school drama. It's really monotonous and there's not much of a difference between each book. Every plot is the same. But I got really tired of (really really good!) books with such seriousness - seriously I was going under depression for the characters. So I went to the library and got the pinkest book I could find.
Anyway the whole plotline was really predictable from the start, but interestingly enough there were some twists that I didn't expect. KJ seemed a bit gullible to me, but Robbie sounded really cute and some of the chemistry was interesting enough.
Critically speaking, it's not a very good book, but for some weird reason, I enjoyed it. It does teach you to stay true to yourself and how to deal a bit with life and how everything does work out in the end. So if you just wanna kick back and read something entertaining and short and of course, filled with drama, pick up this book. Oh and one more moral - geeks rule. Period.

Cover Review:
I found the cover...somewhat weird what with the nerdy guy (who I think is Andy...) staring at KJ, but it seemed interesting, especially with the title Geek Magnet scrolled across the locker. Anyway it's not bad.

margaret signing off!
