Normal by day, famous by night is how fourteen-year-old Flan Flood is living her life. She has decided she needs a change in her life, and going to a public high school instead of the usual private one she went to would be the perfect solution. Flan's parents are still away on vacation so she and her older brother, the famous Patch Flood, are left at home to fend for themselves. When her three celebrity friends Sara-Beth Benny, Philippa, and Liesel all start having tragedies in their own lives they decide to stay at Flan's house for a while. Flan has to keep secret the fact that her superstar friends are staying with her because of fear of the paparazzi finding them. She doesn't tell anyone about her popularity and how she goes to the hottest clubs at night with her famous friends while, during the day, she acts like a typical teenager who likes to hang out with her normal peers. Bennett, her boyfriend, invites her to a party at his apartment and against her better judgment, she decides to go. She had been doing such a wonderful job of keeping her true identity confidential until an unexpected guest reveals whom she truly is. How will Flan be able to explain this shocking truth to her new school friends who loved and trusted her?

Every teen girl who loves mild romance, drama, and real life novels should read this fantastic, one-of-a-kind story, ASAP! J. Minter is an amazing author who really understands the life of teen girls. I loved this book and constantly found myself thinking about what will happen next. Once you start reading this wonderful novel it is almost impossible to put it down. I extremely enjoyed reading about the unique characters, whom I thought had awesome personalities. Inside Girl should definitely be a "must read" on every teenage girl's list.

There were a few instances when drinking alcohol was involved. Also, sometimes the language wasn't overly appropriate.
