Kim vs. the Mean Girl by Meredith Schorr ~ My Thoughts


Kim vs the Mean Girl

Kim vs. the Mean Girl by Meredith Schorr
Print and Kindle Editions, 200 pages
Published: April 20th 2017 by Meredith Schorr

High school sophomore, Kim Long, is no stranger to the “mean girl” antics of Queen Bee Hannah Marshak. When Hannah steals Kim’s diary and in front of the entire class reads personal (not to mention humiliating) entries Kim wrote about her crush, Jonathan, Kim vows to enact revenge.

Kim and her loyal best friend, Bridget, come up with the perfect plan to put the evil Hannah in her place once and for all. But will their scheming have the desired effect of getting even, or will Hannah emerge more celebrated by her peers than ever?

Kim vs. The Mean Girl can be read as a young adult standalone novel, but it is also a prequel to the popular Blogger Girl adult romantic comedy series and is set in 2000. Told in the duo perspectives of teenage Kim and Hannah, fans of the series will get an inside look into Kim’s early passion for reading, writing (and Jonathan) and find out why Hannah is so darn mean.

"In Blogger Girl we meet the irrepressible Kim Long and her nemesis Hannah Marshak. Kim Vs. the Mean Girl takes us back to high school with Kim and Hannah 101 in this delightful prequel. I gobbled it up in one byte…er, I mean bite (this is the era before a cell phone was in every backpack). When Kim declares war on Hannah, it takes some unexpected, and at times amusing, turns, and though the enemies don’t emerge as friends, or even frenemies, they each come away the better for it. A fun read for all ages." Eileen Goudge, New York Times best-selling author

My thoughts about Kim vs. the Mean Girl ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"October 2000. Don't do it, Charlie! When I flipped the page, it became clear Charlie was going to do it."

I loved Meredith's other books, Blogger Girl and Novelista Girl, and getting to know Kim and her arch-enemy Hannah. Kim vs. The Mean Girl takes us back to their high school days and give us a look at their history and why they have this animosity towards each other.

The story takes place in 2000 so there are a lot of references to the culture of that time; songs, movies, television shows, that kind of thing. It was like a trip down memory lane for me and a reminder of what high school was like, all the good times, along with some of the bad.

This book is listed as Teen and Young Adult and it will definitely appeal to that age group. Set in a high school, it covers a lot of the issues that teens are dealing with; friendships, rivalries, fitting in, young love. It was also very enjoyable for me to read as well and I am way past that teen phase in my life. I had come to know and love the characters from the previous books and it was great to revisit them again. Kim vs. The Mean Girl is a well written, fun story that can be enjoyed by all.


I've read both of the books that take place in time after this one, Blogger Girl and Novelista Girl. Kim vs. the Mean Girl took me back to see how it all started. Click the links to read my thoughts about those two, fun books.
