Stacy lives with her "maybe single" mother after her plastic surgeon father moved out and her younger, genius-smart brother, Arthur. She spends her days hoping: to get in with the "It" clique, The Chicas, become wildly popular, marry Andy Goldfarb wannabe hip-hopper (for lack of a better word; it was either that or "gangster") and, naturally, have an amazing bat mitzvah.
Needless to say, nothing works out as she planned. Adventures in online dating, broken friendships and tween-designer name-dropping (Miss Sixty! Bebe! BCBG!) make this tale of self-discovery a keeper.
As I said in my post about
Twisted Sisters I mentioned that the main character was unlikeable.The same goes for the main character's friend, Kelly, and even Stacy sometimes.
Although Stacy's interest in only what was good for herself was a major plot point, I hope that in the sequel
We Are SO Crashing Your Bar Mitzvah! she'll grow to become a three-dimensional, likeable character.
