*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
Everybody wants to be a famous It Girl. Don't they?
Anna Huntley's aims in life:
1) Must keep my two lovely new (and only) school friends by not doing anything in usual manner of socially inept dork and outcast.
2) Train Dog (my labrador) to high-five. This is probably the most ambitious life goal on this list.
3) Do not set the school's Deputy Queen Bee mean girl's hair on fire (again).
4) Work out whether 2) and 3) constitute being socially inept or outcastish.
5) Go to Africa and give out rice.
6) To hide in a cupboard FOR LIFE with Dog now Dad is engaged to one of the most famous actresses EVER, the paparazzi want to spash my face all over the papers and everyone in school (and The World) is soon to discover the level of my social ineptitude.
7) Is rice a bit done now? Maybe I can give out chocolate in Africa too. I do like chocolate. Must work out how to do it from the cupboard...

My Thoughts
 It Girl is a book about a girl, Anna, who has recently moved to London. She feels like a total social outcast and nobody seems to understand her bright sense of humour and thinks that she is plain weird. Now that her Dad has recently become engaged to a famous actress, who's daughter is big in the social world, Anna grasps this opportunity to try and fit in but little does she know that she really is being used. The most popular guy in the school starts to talk to her out of nowhere, she is suddenly being asked to sit with the cool girls even though she had just damaged one of their hairstyles which involved hairspray and a bunsen burner plus she is now being chased by paparazzi and can barely take her dog for a walk! Now that she has not been talking to her 2 friends who have been with her through the embarrassing moments, what really is the price of fame?

This book was one of those books I thought I didn't like. I was in quite a bad mood when I read it but after a while I went  back to reading it and I started to remember parts and I burst out laughing our of nowhere. There is only one way to describe this book and that is bloody hilarious. I haven't laughed so hard at a book in donkey years!! Anna just seemed like such an awkward person like me who always does the wrong things at the wrong to me and likes to hide in dark closets and curl up in a ball forever. It was almost like the author jumped into a 15 year olds head, extracted their thoughts then put it down on paper. I have probaby never read a more relatable book.

My favourite character in the book would have to be Anna's dog because he was just lazy and a bit hyper at times and stole everbodies food so I loved him. Anna had me falling out of my seat! She set fire to a girls hair, has terrible dance moves and experience something which meant hanging upside down in a Wolverine vest. Every single situation she was in was as funny as the rest and I loved how she didn't really care that much before her becoming famous and even after she became famous. That is what I loved about her, she made mistakes like everybody else and always recovered from them and making things right.

The ending was probably one of the funniest endings ever (in grey:She was about to kiss a boy outside the school hall and then her dad honked his car horn and told her to get in, talk about spoiling special moments!) Overall, I really did enjoy this book and I really can't wait for the next book to come up!

Keep Reading,
