"You Are So Cursed!" - Book Review

High school's a dog-eat-dog world, but Vickie Marotti has an edge. Scorned by the jocks and cheerleaders? Misunderstood by the uptight vice principal? No problem. Not when you're an adept street magician, hexing bullies who dare harass you or your outcast friends!
But then cute and popular upperclassman Gio Carson recognizes the truth: Vick's no more a witch than she is class president. Her dark curses are nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Will he tell the world, or will it be their little secret? Vick is about to learn a valuable lesson: that real magic lies in knowing your true friends.

My Review:

It's been a long time since I've read a book under 300 pages, let alone less than 200. I read You Are So Cursed! in a day, and it was beyond refreshing to read something short and lighthearted without having to think too much. You Are So Cursed! was really cute, albeit cliche and corny, but I loved it nonetheless. I'm a pretty big cheese ball, so maybe that's why.
Though this book is intended for a younger audience (around 13 and up) I think it has some important lessons and morals to teach people. Like how wrong it is to judge someone by the way they look (Never judge a book by it's cover), or how you should never ditch your friends over a guy/girl you'd potentially date, or trying to be someone your not in order to impress someone.
The relationship between Gio and Vick was really cute. Vick was a tough, smart-mouthed girl with something always up her sleeve (no pun intended...or maybe it was), and Gio is this adorable dorky guy. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read to make you smile, roll your eyes while smiling, and laugh. I would definitely like to read the next book in the series by Naomi Nash I Am So Jinxed! to read more about Gio and Vick's relationship.
