Hot Mess: Summer In The City by Julie Kraut and Shallon Lester

EMMA FREEMAN IS waving buh-bye to her standard summer of stationwagoning around the suburbs. This summer she’s heading to the big city. Emma’s totally prepped for days at a fabulous internship and nights of socialite-ing around town. But when you’re 17 and not an heiress, reality is far from pink fizzy drinks and red velvet ropes. As the summer heats up, Emma learns that glamour is hard to come by when your only friend is too boy-crazy to hang, your budget is more H&M than D&G, and you spend 8 hours a day working for a man who proves that the devil wears Dockers too. Add one little white lie told to one very hot coworker and a roommate who makes Paris Hilton look junior varsity, and this summer in the city is starting to turn into one hot mess.
This was definetly a summer read. It has great characters who are funny and easy to relate to. The idea of the book was good and funny. I loved Colin he sounded like a gut I would date. The Dorf was really annoying in a chracter way because that's how is character way. I would hate to have him as a boss but he makes part of the great novel. Emma was a little whiny but other than that she was great. Ths book shows some great friendships between Rachel and Emma and how they reley on each other and what bff's are for. Jayla added to fun by making a funny charcter who I think was a little over the top. The plot was never slow and took some bad turns and a few good ones.
I have to say I love the shoes and bracelet on the cover.
3.5 out of 5
