Lately I've been reading a lot of Net Galley books, so here's another one! This one is called Populazzi. To be honest, I didn't fall in love with this book. I really wanted to, but I didn't. But that doesn't mean that someone else can like it. Anyways, here's my review. .
Cara and her friend Claudia have a plan. A plan to climb the rungs of the Populazzi ladder. What is the Populazzi? Its a social ranking where the Supreme Populazzi rule the top and rule the school. Cara has always dreamed of being the Supreme Populazzi and after moving to a new school, she finally gets her chance. To climb the rungs of the Populazzi ladder you have to start with a low ranking boyfriend, then dump him and get another boyfriend who's rank is a rung higher. So Cara does just that. But how far can she go with this? After being grounded and hated by her parents, and not to mention her best friend Archer, Cara doesn't know what to do. Can she continue climbing the ladder? Is it worth losing everything just to become Supreme Populazzi? Read the funny book to find out how Cara settles it all out.
Sorry for the short summary but that's basically what the book is about, there is other stuff that happens but I didn't want to give it away. Anyways, I'm not saying that this book was bad, because it wasn't. But it wasn't great. At least, not like other books I've read. First of all, I thought the plot was kind of pointless, but still made you want to read. Second of all, at certain points I wanted to yell at Cara: WHAT ARE YOU DOING???? Because at some points she was being so stupid. But I guess that's the whole point because in the end she did suffer some great consequences. The other thing I didn't like was all the weird stuff, which I'm not going to explain but if you read the book you'll understand what I mean. But let me tell you what I loved, I LOVED Archer and his relationship with Cara, I really loved it. I wish there was more of them in the book but that's ok. CARA+ARCHER=AWESOMENESS! Haha, ok enough of that. Other than that everything else in the book was pretty normal for me, nothing that said "Wow! Now there's something that I'll wanna read again!" So yeah, this book was an ok read for me. If you want to find out if its good for yourself stop by Net Galley and read it!
