Two exes. One election. All the drama.For fans of Becky Albertalli and Morgan Matson comes a funny, hearfelt novel about fueding exes running for class president and the scandal that makes the previously boring school election the newest trending hashtag.At Acedia High School outside of Boston, student council has always been nothing more than a popularity contest. Nobody pays attention. Nobody cares.But all that changes when the Frankengirls show up. During the very first week of school, someone plasters the halls with Photoshopped images of three "perfect tens"--images of scantily clad girls made from real photos of girls at school. The student body is livid. And the two presidential candidates, Angeline Quinn and Leo Torres, jump on the opportunity to propose their solutions and secure votes. After their messy break up, Leo and Angie are fighting tooth and nail to win this thing and their constituents are mesmerized as they duke it out.As if things couldn't be more dramatic, the school's two newspapers get involved. The Red & Blue is run by Angie's sister Cat and she prides herself on only reporting the facts. But her morals are tested when The Shrieking Violet--written by an anonymous source and based less on facts and more on fiction--blatantly endorses Leo. Rumors fly, secrets are leaked, and the previously mundane student election becomes anything but boring.
This was a fun contemporary romance. I enjoyed the talk of politics and it's parallel to our current world. I liked the characters and how comical they were. This a beautiful blend of drama, humor and romance that left me tickled. This was fun and had a good message. I'm not big on contemporary, especially YA, but this kept me intrigued enough to continue reading until the end. Angelina, Cat and Leo all were typical teens. The relationships and bounds kept me into the story. Overall, this was a fun read and I would recommend it to YA contemporary lovers.
