Book Review: Spot the Difference (Juno Dawson)
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Release Date: March 3rd 2016
Summary (from Goodreads):
Avery has always suffered at the hands of the bullies, so when she’s given a seemingly-miraculous opportunity to join the ‘A-list’ she grabs at it with both hands. But appearances can be deceiving, and soon Avery’s not so sure she likes this new version of herself. And it’s only by overcoming her fears that she can learn the true meaning of being comfortable in your own skin.
I won a copy of this book from the author in a Twitter competition but this does not affect my review.
I’ve read a couple of books by Juno Dawson before (Say Her Name and All of the Above) and am always amazed at her ability to write as a teenage girl. I know it’s the job of a YA writer to do but no one does it like Dawson. She really deserves the Queen of Teen title!
This a short book for World Book Day and I read it in one sitting. It’s really enjoyable and Dawson showcases her talent at creating an amazing believable teenage character in just a few short chapters. Avery said so many things I thought as a teenage girl (only sightly updated as I’m old now…).
This is a classic, discovering who your real friends are story, and kind of Mean Girls-esque. I thought the plot was a little predictable but it’s written so well that you don’t even care. It’s a great read for anyone but I’d really recommend it for teens suffering with skin problems.
