Elizabeth Eulberg’s most charming novel to date is The Girl with the Great Personality, a smartly executed story that examines our obsession with beauty, fashion, and style — and what it takes to overcome not only others preconceptions, but also our own.

Don’t mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

Everybody loves Lexi. She’s popular, smart, funny…but she’s never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).

Lexi’s sick of it. She’s sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She’s sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She’s sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she’s sick of having all her family’s money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.

The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren’t going to know what hit them. Because Lexi’s going to play the beauty game – and she’s in it to win it.

Besides her uproarious parody of “Toddlers & Tiaras,” Eulberg delivers a sweet and thought-provoking novel about navigating the shaky territory of adolescence and peer pressure. She also tackles the sticky subject of expectations — those imposed on us by society, but also the expectations we impose on ourselves.

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality — besides having one of the wittiest and most fabulous titles ever — is a sweet, funny, and brutally honest story — told in Eulberg’s signature charming style. It doesn’t hurt that there’s also a sweet-as-can-be, curl-your-toes romance tying it all together, too.

And while there are plenty of lessons to glean from this book, it’s not a “lesson” book. It’s just a charming story with an honest message at its heart.

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is in stores today.
