“FROM THE WORLD OF BOOKS AND GEEKINESS TO THE WORLD OF FASHION AND GLAMOUR…”
Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty queen, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to say “world peace,” and she’s not giving up until she wins Miss American Treasure. But when Ginny has a face-altering allergic reaction the night before competition, Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins haven’t successfully pulled off in decades.
Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte realizes, after walking a mile in her twin’s sky-high stilettos, there might be more to the pageant circuit than just a sparkly crown . . .
“I’m still not Meg March or Jane Bennet. I’ll always be a Jo or a Lizzie, no matter what kind of dress I wear or how I style my hair. But that’s okay, because for once, I feel like the heroine of my own story. It’s taken pretending to be someone else to make me realize who I actually am.”
After reading this amazing description of this book by Teri Wilson and giving a glance to the lovely cover, my anticipation to read this book found no ends. So, when I picked up this book, I was a little scared that it might not meet my expectations.
But, all my fears disappeared the minute I started the first chapter itself! The Accidental Beauty Queen turned out to be one of the best romantic comedy that I have read so far. Both the main leads are shown to unite in the most lovely and realistic way. However, The fact that I liked about this book was that unlike other rom-coms, Accidental Beauty Queen focuses on an independent, powerful yet geeky heroine. The relationship between the two sisters is given more light which I absolutely adored!
Every character plays a very important role in their own way. They tend to seem realistic and relatable at almost every point of the book. Wilson’s writing style gave them a life of their own which impressed me a lot.
I would like to appreciate the writing style as well as the out of ordinary imagination of Teri Wilson that made me read this book without putting it down! Teri deals with many social issues as well but in the most charming way as possible!
The Accidental is that book which you cannot put down till you finish reading it! It is PERFECT for the fans of Sophie Kinsella who love to have a good amount of laugh through the pages!
