CLEOPATRA DE NILE
- new pet snake
- has Deuce--the hottest guy in school--all wrapped up
- Herve Leger bandage dress, strappy gold platforms
Cleo was the queen bee of the RADS, the normies, and everyone in between at Merston High. But now it's "Frankie this" and "Melody that"...these new girls sure know how to get her lashes in a tangle. When Cleo lands a golden Teen Vogue photo op for her friends, everything seems to be back on track...until they bail to be in some film...Frankie and Melody's film! Can't a royal get some loyal?
Frankie lost her head over Brett once and vows never to do it again. Not that she has a choice: Bekka is clinging to her guy like plastic wrap. But when Brett comes up with a plan that could help the RADs live free, sparks fly, and Bekka will stop at nothing to put out the flames...even if it means destroy the entire monster community.
The clock is tick-tick-ticking. Melody has a serious deadline to save her boyfriend, Jackson, from being exposed by the vengeance-seeking Bekka. But Cleo is making it royally difficult for the normie while threatening her acceptance into the RADs' exclusive group...a group that Melody suspects she has more in common with than she ever thought.
FITTING IN IS OUT.
I actually enjoyed this book. It was fun to read , and I flew right though the pages. I would say this book is similar the to Vamps series. Like Vamps, in this book the monster aspect is important and plays a large role in the book except the characters and plot aren't monsterious and wild--just fun. I enjoyed it all the same because this happens to be another one of those 'superficial' books which are my guilty pleasure.
Not the type of book for everyone, but if you're like me or are open-minded, you'll probably enjoy it even if it doesn't become your favourite.
Likes: Melody and Jackson's relationship. It's sweet, and they're so honest with each other.
Dislikes: Suprisingly this is a long list. Unlike my friends I find Frankie extremely annoying. She keeps bouncing off of boys. I mean, I understand some girls are just 'boy crazy' but Frankie seriously annoys me. First she liked Brett, and then she liked Jackson's [SPOILER ALERT] other personality, and now she's back to Brett.
Frankie is just so clueless and easily persuaded. I mean sure, she's a few days old but she's so gullible! I HATE [SPOILER ALERT] how she suddenly concluded that Brett and Melody were plotting against the RADs.
Okay so maybe this wasn't a long list, just a rant about Frankie. And quite frankly [this may shock you] I like Cleo more than Frankie. At least she [Cleo] knows what she wants.
Note: (1) This books is directed towards tweens and older children
