Foreign Exposure: The Social Climber Abroad
Foreign Exposure completes the Social Climber trilogy perfectly, with a cherry on top. In this follow up to More Tales of a 10th Grade Social Climber, Mimi is faced with her biggest obstacle of all, spending her beloved summer vacation with here mom and Maurice. Once her plan lands in Berlin, Germany, and not her mom but Maurice is there to pick her up, Mimi knows that the worst summer of her life has just begun. And shes not wrong. Just a day in Berlin and shes already got an unwelcoming job. Only after a week in Berlin, Mimi is ready to leave and come back home. She absolutely cant stand it. Her baby-sitting job is driving her nuts and her mom doesnt care enough to give her the time of day. So Mimi, like she always does, takes matters into her own hands and decides to run away. She meets up with Lily in London, where she interns at a magazine owned by a friend of the family hosting her. Afterwards, everything fits into place again. Mimi feels right at home as she lives the life of the rich and famous, going to late night parties, chasing down celebrities, and most importantly, hanging out with the cute guy from work. But can she handle it all? This isnt Baldwin High anymore. She is actually messing with peoples lives here. Does she have what it takes to survive?
Lauren and Laura do it again, although Im not sure how they managed to pull off such an awesome book. Foreign Exposure is full of life and adventure, a killer combination. I would recommend it to kids ages 14+ and to fans of the previous books. They will not be disappointed in what is held between the book covers of Foreign Exposure.
