Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  CMy
Fourteen-going-on-fifteen-year-old Mia Fullerton is a very shy person who has the nickname, "Mia the Meek." She will soon start her freshman year of school at St. Hilary's with a goal of getting rid of her nickname and being known throughout her school. There are a few problems getting that accomplished though, such as her mom being her English teacher, her annoying little brother, and new neighbors with a son her age named Tim. At first she thinks Tim is the best neighbor she could possibly get--hot, has her teddy bear's eyes, and loves her favorite book, until she realizes that he is the biggest jerk ever after he contradicts everything she says. After school started, an election was held for class president and Mia was nominated by her best friend and was seconded by her forever crush, Jake Harris. What better way to leave her shell and lose her nickname? The only problem is that she is running against her popular archenemy, Cassie. Who will win the battle for class president, and will Mia get to finally date Jake?

Mia the Meek is an extremely hilarious, laugh-out-loud book with an acceptable amount of romance. I highly recommend this amazing book to young adults who enjoy funny love stories. This is the first book in the Mia Fullerton series and I can't wait to read the next one, which is called Mia the Melodramatic. The only thing I really didn't overly enjoy and I thought took away from this book was the swear words and the use of God's name in vain. Overall though, I think this is an incredible book that I wouldn't mind reading again and I would definitely give praise to the author for writing this marvelous piece of art.

Content:Use of "oh my God" , "thank God almighty" and Phrases like that talk about stuffing bras
