Book Review: Team Awkward [The It Girl #2] by Katy Birchall
I loved the first book in this series, so when Team Awkward landed on my door step I was pleasantly surprised, but disappointed that I wouldn't find time to fit it in before publication. Months later and the Easter weekend off work, I dove head first into this book, and devoured it in a matter of hours. With that in mind, I have no review notes for this book, I'm writing this review from what I can remember.
The thing I love about this series the most is it isn't a serious book, you don't have to think you way through twists and turns, it's a fun read that doesn't leave your brain packed with details. Its a perfect book to escape the world for a few hours.
Things are just as crazy for Anna as they were in the previous book, her Dad and Helena are trying to plan their wedding with some outrages dresses and ideas, Anna has also been slated by the press, as being an IT Girl for nothing. But Anna is determined to prove she can do something, even if it means volunteering herself as the Puffins captain for sports day, a decision made even worse when Anna has not got a sporty bone in her body. With the help of a fellow team mate, Anna starts her training, and although it's funny to read, it definitely puts me off running for life.
Anna is such a lovable character, you can't help feel sorry for her and the predicaments she gets herself into, one of them being gullible and believing Jess...which is something I can relate to.
Team Awkward brings back our favourite characters, including Dog. It draws us into the chaos of Anna's life, but leaves us laughing at the events that occur. We get to meet a few new faces who only end up in our good books, and it leaves Sophie with a lot to be embarrassed about
Team Awkward is a fun, quick read, and is sure to appeal to fans of the Geek Girl series.
