Jan Miller is a senior in high school who's convinced she in destined to lead the world's least fabulous life. From her best friend, who is an official New York It Girl, to her parents, who are way to embarrassing, to her crushes (who always seem to be in the right place at the wrong time), Jan never feels that she's got it. Her college application deadlines are looming and her French homework is taunting her. And when it comes to love, Jan's destiny appears to be as tragic as a Greek play. When a romantic Shakespeare scene-reading with her crush turns humiliating, Jan feels more starcrossed than Juliet. She never seems to say the right thing around guys, unlike her best It Girl friend, who knows the moves and lines to catch an older, adorable, sophisticated boyfriend. If only Jan could write and star in her own reality . . . But in spit of feeling that the forces of the universe have it in for her, Jan's about to learn that in lilfe and romance, being a Not It Girl has some major rewards.
This was a pretty good book that was well written. The whole story is about the main character Jan (whose name is pronounced Yahn) trying to get with Josh. It wasn't exactly my thing. Overall it was a good plot, but sometimes along the way I found myself a little annoyed by Jan's best friend. While trying to act more mature, she just looked so much more immature. Plus, Jan herself didn't always make the smartest moves. I liked Jan's little "inserts" of what she would like to happen, I thought they were entertaining and lightened the book a bit more. Confessions Of a Not It Girl was a page turner, and kept you wanting to know what happened next.
Yahn has a problem. She cant seem to find a boyfriend, plus her "it" best friend has had loads of them already! When Yahn meets one that she thinks might just be the one, it doesn't look like it will end up the way she plans. They have a fight, make up, but then everything starts getting awkward. Plus, they were never girlfriend, boyfriend in the first place! Will her dream come true? Or will she just have to keep searching? Find out in "Confessions of A Not It Girl" by Melissa Kantor.
This wasn't one of the best books that I have read. Almost all of it was about boys and didn't really have a main plot other than Yahn getting a boyfriend and about her best friends boyfriend (who thinks shes 21). It was still pretty fun to read though, it was light and different.
Jan Miller is the opposite of her friend Rebecca, the New York "It" girl. Jan has many embarrassing moments, is not at all confident, and is forever worrying about her big butt. When her crush Josh starts to take an interest in her, she isn't sure what's going on and usually ends up turning into a drooling mess. This book was very funny and chronicles the life of Jan who has college, crushes, and a famous and perfect best friend to deal with. I highly advise that you read this book.
This is a really good book!It is a fun read. It takes you through her life step by step.
