Kim vs the Mean Girl by Meredith Schorr

Kindle Edition, 200 pages
Published April 20th 2017 by Meredith Schorr
High school sophomore, Kim Long, is no stranger to the “mean girl” antics of Queen Bee Hannah Marshak. When Hannah steals Kim’s diary and in front of the entire class reads personal (not to mention humiliating) entries Kim wrote about her crush, Jonathan, Kim vows to enact revenge.

Kim and her loyal best friend, Bridget, come up with the perfect plan to put the evil Hannah in her place once and for all. But will their scheming have the desired effect of getting even, or will Hannah emerge more celebrated by her peers than ever?

Kim vs. The Mean Girl can be read as a young adult standalone novel, but it is also a prequel to the popular Blogger Girl adult romantic comedy series and is set in 2000. Told in the duo perspectives of teenage Kim and Hannah, fans of the series will get an inside look into Kim’s early passion for reading, writing (and Jonathan) and find out why Hannah is so darn mean.

My Thoughts…

Meredith Schorr is bringing back Kim Long and Hannah Marshak.    In Kim vs. the Mean Girl we get to see how high school shaped the rivalry between these two and the lives they lived before Blogger Girl (where Kim and Hannah are grown up).     This is the prequel to Blogger Girl but either book can be read first.   

The high school setting was perfect.   The clichés, the gossips, the cute boys, the homework, and even the family dynamic through teenage eyes are written perfectly.    I have a high schooler and the thoughts, the actions, and the reactions were as I witness with my daughter and her friends.     I could picture my daughter and her friends plotting against Hannah or getting google eyed over the cute boy.

While this is a YA book as a mom I really enjoyed the story.    I am going to share it with my daughter and see if she enjoys it as much as I did.

"In Blogger Girl we meet the irrepressible Kim Long and her nemesis Hannah Marshak. Kim Vs. the Mean Girl takes us back to high school with Kim and Hannah 101 in this delightful prequel. I gobbled it up in one byte…er, I mean bite (this is the era before a cell phone was in every backpack). When Kim declares war on Hannah, it takes some unexpected, and at times amusing, turns, and though the enemies don’t emerge as friends, or even frenemies, they each come away the better for it. A fun read for all ages." Eileen Goudge, New York Times best-selling author
