Book Club - April

On the outside, Libby Brin is the most popular girl in school. But on the inside, Libby is dying — of boredom. In a moment of desperation, Libby signs up for an internship at the Los Angeles Zoo, much to the dismay of her friends, who’d prefer she spend her time with them, shopping, partying, and making fun of everyone else. Oddly, Libby realizes that she actually enjoys her new job and that she may even like the two "nerds" she works with. Will the Queen of Cool be forced to give up her crown?

 This a was a short book, less than 200 pages.  I actually did not like this book as much as I wanted to like it.  I didn't like the writing style or the main character.  I know she's supposed to be this stuck up popular girl but I never really felt like she really changed or learned much.  I guess she learned something but I'm sure she's still the judgmental popular girl that will always judge people even if it's not to their face.  Even the other characters such as Tina were not likeable and judgmental themselves even if not outright.  I just didn't care for the book.
