So the end of Mia’s first year of high school is fast approaching. She is content with most aspects of her life, except for the always-infuriating Grandmere and Michael’s resistance to prom. She wonders how she could have overlooked this severe defect in the love of her life.
But while the thought that she might never get to be like Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink (minus the terrible things she did to that dress), she does have more pressing problems. While celebrating Mia’s fifteenth birthday, Grandmere inadvertently causes a strike of service workers. New York restaurants and hotels are crippled and events are canceled for the foreseeable future. It doesn’t help that Lily has thrown herself in defense of the workers and is in danger of destroying her relationship with Boris.
This one is not my favorite because it has far too much of Lily being insanely selfish. She is like this most of the time of course but it was ridiculous in this volume. It’s still a fun book for crazy ass Mia and Grandmere though. And I’m going to sound like a total high school girl now, but I wish that Michael Moscovitz were real.
