Brilliant, by Rachel Vail
I read the book Brilliant, by Rachel Vail, for my first quarter book report. It was so amazingly good that I had to let the world know about it!
Brilliant is about a 16-year-old girl named Quinn Avery. She's everything you ask for and then some. She's the best mentor you could ever want to her two younger sisters, 15-year-old Allison and 14-year-old Phoebe. Out of the three girls, Quinn would be the one to win an award, unless the award was for throwing the best temper tantrum, in which case, it would go to Allison. Phoebe could be described as sweet, and Allison could be described as stunning, and Quinn could be described as brilliant.
Quinn is one of those girls who gets straight A's, the one who studies constantly, listens to classical music, dresses like a housewife, doesn't cuss or swear, and has no life. This is apparently called being brilliant.
I really like this book because it's the story of a boring, nerdy girl morphing into a rebel over the course of a summer. It's fun, witty, and very well-written. My favorite part was when Quinn got outrageously drunk. :)
Until next time, I'm Very, Very Fluffy Pants saying, "Spend the weekend with fluffy pants and a book. They will never fail you."
