Summary from Egmont
If everything Anna does is going to be seen by more than 10 million people, then she’s determined to find something that she’s really good at. Everyone else seems to have a ‘thing’ – especially the new girl at school, who’s been distracting Connor with their shared love of art. Luckily the school sports day is looming, and Anna is limbering up!
What could go wrong?
This is like The Princess Diaries only without royalty and a cat, keeping heaps of drama and humour. My review for book 1 The It Girl is here. While Anna and her step sister aren't best buddies they have moments of sharing the same distaste for something their parents do, and when the stakes are super high they help each other a little in their own way.
Anna has an insane amount of mishaps, I felt so sorry for her especially on sports day but in time Anna will laugh at the incidents. It's hard because she is in the limelight a lot, which understandably makes her more nervous and prone to messing up, it's a vicious circle. She manages to enjoy parts of her life though, with support of her friends and avoidance of her foes. I adored the emails she shares with her family and friends because concepts are misunderstood and some of them gang up on her at a time where ahe needs sensible advice rather than being mocked. Definitely a book for when life isn't so great, because Anna's escapades puts it into perspective.
