Review: The Jerk Magnet - Book #1 Life at Kingston High Series - Melody Carlson- February 2012
Have you got an author that you love so much, that whenever they release a book - you just have to sit there and read it. For me , one of those authors is Melody Carlson. Ever since I read her book "Finding Alice" at 16 , I fell in love with her writing and since then plowed my way through her numerous series. So it was just natural, that when I saw she had a new series out that I purchase the book to read.
Her new series takes us to the world of Kingston High,and in Book #1 we meet Chelsea, ever since her mum died when she was eleven. It has been her and her dad, and in a way she has referred herself to being like Dracula - afraid of mirrors as she views herself as a wallflower - a plain, ugly and unattractive on the outside but within herself she has a sparkling and awesome personality but having the great personality doesn't get you the confidence, friends and guys.
With her dad marrying again, her stepmother to be is trying to win Chelsea's affections by swooping in to be her Makeover Fairy Godmother and changing Chelsea's outside appearance and making it as beautiful on the exterior as in the interior. The transformation is definitely one for the books as she goes from Ugly Duckling to the Beautiful Swan. However, Chelsea is about to learn the hard way that when you are striking and beautiful - people judge you only on your looks and you become what is known as a "Jerk Magnet" - attracting all the wrong attention.
With the help of her new friend Janelle, the pair of them will try an experiment and show really whether people - even Christians judge a person from the outside without taking much stock on what type of person they are in the inside.
Like most of Melody Carlson's books, each of them teaches the readers a lesson in
The Jerk Magnet which is a great read. It is definitely one of those books that makes you think and re-evaluate to see whether being beautiful or plain is really what it is cracked up to be and whether it is better to have a beautiful exterior or interior.
