When Sophie and Samuel Delorme’s parents sit them down for a talk, the nearly sixteen-year-old twins expect to hear something major—just not their father’s declaration that they come from a long line of French nobility. Suddenly Sophie’s lost in dreams of life as a countess. She’ll no longer be an invisible suburban teen, and just maybe the unattainable Spencer Kavanaugh will finally notice her.

But wait . . . Dad’s not done. The title is only passed down to the males in the family. Sam is a count. Sophie is a big nothing.

Frustrated, she starts a blog about the mysterious Count S who’s just arrived in America and is breaking hearts left and right. But when the posts are picked up by a major celebrity gossip site, and people start demanding proof of the noble’s existence, how will Sophie keep her cover as Mademoiselle Blogger a secret, and stop her reputation from being destroyed?

I really enjoyed this story! At first Sophie is excited when her father tells her he's tentatively a count. Her excitement quickly changes when she finds out her so-called newly found French title only goes to her brother Sam and not her. So she ends up making up a French count and posts it on her blog. Not just any count either but a hot one that would put any celeb to shame.

I loved the voice in this story. Sophie is a great character who is likeable even when she decides to make up a story and post it online. I mean, who can't relate with Sophie's desire to use her new found knowledge of her French nobility to help achieve popularity? COUNTESS NOBODY has a twist on the whole PRINCESS DIARIES premise but unlike that heroine Sophie tries to deal with her disappointment at not being a countess in a constructive albeit creative way.

This is one of those stories that is perfect for the beach. It's light, fun, and is also a perfect read for tweens. I loved the references to France throughout. Another thing that's a huge plus is the parents in this story are believable. Yes, they're divorced but both are concerned for Sophie and are around unlike some Disney TV shows where parents are either missing or clueless. The love interest is fun and believable too.

A fun romantic tale. I'd recommend to anyone who wants something that isn't dark like some contemporary YAs out there.
Good Points
1. A fun, light tale that can be enjoyed by tweens too
2. It involves a French count(made up but still...) and France--need I say more?
3. Great voice
