Jerk Magnet Review & Giveaway

The Jerk Magnet, (Life at Kingston High)

Chelsea Martin ends her sophomore year as the average, struggling wallflower. She has no friends, no hope of a boyfriend, no plans and definitely no life. But before her junior year starts, everything has changed. Now she has a new look, new stepmom, new style, new confidence and new problems. Chelsea just assumed that everything would be different when she started the new school in California with a group of friends from the local youth group. But she as wrong – completely!

I don’t think this book is destined to be a classic for the next 100 years. There are many references to 2012 culutural icons. Instead, it is an extremely relevant books for teenagers that addresses the issue of what makes you beautiful. How do you balance the desire to be ‘hot’ with the real person that exists below your skin and clothes. It also exposes the shallow approach that high schoolers often judge others by.

What if beauty is more than just skin deep?

When Chelsea Martin’s future stepmother helps her transform from gawky and geeky into the hottest girl at her new school, Chelsea is pretty sure it’s the best thing that ever happened to her. But her hot new look has a downside. She’s attracting lots of guys who all have one thing in common: they’re jerks. Oh, and stealing the attention of all the guys in school doesn’t exactly make her BFF material for the girls.

Finally a great guy catches her eye. But he’s the only one around who doesn’t give her a second glance. Can Chelsea come up with a plan to get his attention? Or will her new image ruin everything?
