Synopsis from Goodreads: 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 pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time. She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and 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 is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.
My Review: This book was exactly the romantic comedy I was hoping it would be with a few nerdy quirks thrown in that I adored. This book was cute, light and a great break from the heavier reads I have been into lately. The romance in the book is a bit of a side story instead of the main point, but I liked that. The book was really about Charlotte and Ginny’s development as sisters and as individuals and it was nice to see that instead of a book based solely on the romance. I loved all the female positivity and the Harry Potter references. Overall I enjoyed this read and would recommend it to anyone looking for a light quirky read.
