Spotlight on MESSY by the FugGirls

As far as sequels go, this one is a bit of a game changer. Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan wrote their first book, Spoiled, following two main characters, sisters Molly and Brooke. Messy continues in that tradition of following two points of view, but this time they sub out Molly for her best friend Max, which leads to drama right at the start since Max and Brooke hate each other.

As with most things I read from Cocks and Morgan, Messy had me laugh out loud and often. And this book felt even more compelling than the first (which I also liked) because the plot revolved around something in which these two writers already master: a blog. If you don't follow them on www.gofugyourself.com, then you should.

And don't just take my word for it...

  • “I love the way Heather and Jessica write. They’re so funny, and so fashion-y, which is incredibly rare.” – Mindy Kaling, Emmy-nominated writer, actress and New York Times bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
  • “Gleefully sending up celebrity blogs and social media… timely satirical touches keep things fresh [...] thanks to a cast of complex characters who offer ample evidence that, F. Scott Fitzgerald notwithstanding, the rich and famous are like you and me.” — Kirkus Reviews
  • “Cocks and Morgan’s signature sassy style is back and stronger than ever. The dialogue is more snappy, the pacing more polished [...] and all of the Fug Girls’ pokes at celebrity ridiculousness made me want to high five them SO BAD.” — Forever Young Adult

SYNOPSIS according to Goodreads.com:
Sometimes life gets messy.
After a rocky start in Spoiled, Brooke Berlin and her newly discovered half sister, Molly Dix, have settled into something like sisterly love, but the drama is far from over.
Now that Brooke's caught a taste of fame and her movie star father's attention, she wants to launch a blog that will position her as the ultimate Hollywood insider. But between schoolwork, party-planning committee meetings, and spa treatments, she hardly has the time to write it herself...
Enter Max McCormack, an aspiring author with a terrible after-school job pushing faux meat on the macrobiotic masses of La-La Land. Max reluctantly agrees to play Brooke's ghost-blogger for an impressive salary, and the site takes off, but how long can their lie last? In person, Brooke can't live up to the intellectual wit of openbrooke.com, and Max soon begins to resent hiding her genius behind a bandage dress-wearing blonde. Can the girls work together to stay on top, or will the truth come out and ruin everything they've built?

    I finally have Spoiled checked out from the library! I'm still getting through the books from 2011 on my To Read list. I love the Fugly blog, I've been reading it for about 5 years (!) and was so geeked when I heard they wrote a YA book.
