Review:GoldenGirl by Micol Ostow

Product Description
Paige, Spencer, and Madison have it all: the looks, the connections, the money, the boys. As the daughters of three of the most prestigious families on Philadelphia's Main Line (read: old money, and lots of it) and the ruling juniors at Bradford Prep, nothing can stand in their way....except, perhaps, their own dark secrets. When an old frenemy from Paige's hidden past shows up at Bradford and plays nice--too nice--Paige is desperate to smother the threat. How far will she go to silence the truth?


GoldenGirl is written in blog format, where post of the time the main character Spencer writes whats happening in her blog and her friends respond. Its an interesting format considering you would think a lot would be missed this way, which is true. Parents only show up when shes in trouble and are rarely mentioned....oh wait...teens wouldn't blog about their parents.

And this is where GoldenGirl triumphs, it doesn't loose its quality writing to the format, instead it provides an acurate dipiction of what a girls blog might actually sound like.

My only peeves are that its WAY too short and it takes about 1/3 of the book before you figure out the plot-which isn't always a bad thing.

All in all-it was awesome! I loved it and I say that about books very rarely. A++++

Make sure you check out bradfordprep.com -it's so cool!

NEXT UP: The One by Ed Decter( I started it last night, it's phenominal!)

Hey--so glad to hear that you liked the book and that you thought the format worked. Believe it or not, we kinda agree with you about the length, and book two, FASHIONISTA (out in June) is longer. In the meantime, though, you can check out all of the characters' blogs online for extra reveals, scandals, and secrets--seriously, it's like practically a whole other book until itself.
In the meantime, enjoy "The One"--I had a chance to meet Ed a few years ago and he's GREAT!
