After two glorious (though somewhat hectic) semesters with her dad in New York City, Mimi must make good on her promise to her parents: summer break with her mom. But it seems going back to her cozy old life in Houston isn’t in the cards. Instead, she’s dragged off to Berlin, where her mother’s been offered a fellowship. After a few weeks of a nightmare nanny job, it becomes clear that Mimi’s European vacation isn’t much of a vacation after all. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, she receives a call from Lily Morton, her friend from New York, who invites her to London, where an internship at a family friend’s magazine awaits. Soon Mimi is at it again—living it up with glamorous friends, pursuing a new crush, and chasing down celebrities at her very entertaining job. For a while, Mimi’s convinced she has it made. Never before has fitting in been so easy. If only it could stay that way. Mimi may have gotten a handle on the Empire State—but that’s nothing compared to the state of the empire!

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.
