Summary
Jennifer James is famous at her high school - for being the most unpopular girl with the wackiest mother. Somehow, Jennifer is selected by her classmates to appear on a reality-TV show filming at London Road Comprehensive. She is a complete underdog, but, with the help of her friends and sympathetic staffers, Jennifer is set to make the biggest splash at London Road.
Critique
Cute and entertaining, this first novel by Gillian Shields has all of the elements for a successful teen title. Anyone who ever struggled to fit in will cheer for Jennifer as she strives for victory. The diary format is a gimmick that works for this story. A helpful glossary of Brit-speak is included.
