The brilliant sequel to The It Girl. Hilariously funny and deliciously romantic – perfect for fans of Geek Girl and Louise Rennison.
Romance is in the air!
Preparations for the Wedding of the Century between Anna's dad and super famous actress Helena Montaine is in full swing (all Anna needs to do is escape having to wear the biggest meringue of a bridesmaid dress that EVER existed.)
And not only that but Anna, her friends and her ACTUAL BOYFRIEND (definitely requires shouting), Connor, are about to go on a school trip in romantic Rome.
So as long as Anna can avoid doing something like falling face first in the Trevi Fountain, nothing could spoil this perfect pasta-filled moment. Could it?

(this commentary is unwelcome)
(your face is unwelcome)
(That's not funny)
(I disagree. It's hilarious. I actually snorted when I wrote that)
1. Éowyn from Lord of the Rings: When all the stinky boys say she can't fight because she's a girl, she disguises herself as a man, goes to war with them and kills the Witch-king, something none of the men could do but she could because she's AWESOME.
What kind of name is Éowyn?
Did you read any of the above?
And your only comment is, what kind of name is Éowyn?
It's a stupid name
No, it's a lovely name
I guess she's an elf or whatever so I'll forgive her name as I suppose it's meant to be different and magical
She's not an elf
She is an elf
She's NOT an elf
You made me watch the movie. She's an elf
You fell asleep within the first 5 minutes and SHE'S NOT AN ELF
Yeah, well maybe I wouldn't fall asleep in the first 5 minutes if those habits weren't so boring
Whatever. This woman is an elf because she's played by Liv Tyler who has those weird ears stuck to her head
NO, THEY'RE DIFFERENT CHARACTERS AND... you know what? Let's move on
2. Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice: She is smart, witty and headstrong and values people for who they are, not their financial status
The bit about financial status
That is NOT wrong
Yes it is. That's why she marries Mr Darcy
No. She marries Mr Darcy because she loves him
She decides she loves him after she's had a good look at his big house
She doesn't marry him because of his house
If you say so
She marries him for love
And the big house
STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY
No one's blaming her. I'd marry a goat if he had a house like Mr Darcy's
3. Scarlet Witch, Marvel: She is obviously the best of Marvel's Avengers because she can alter reality and she's trained in witchcraft so she's super powerful
Never heard of her
Yes, you have
Not ringing a bell
We had a conversation about her yesterday
YES! For like 10 minutes
Are you sure I was there?
Yes, you were there!
You weren't talking to yourself?
No! We were discussing her relationship with the Vision
You had a vision??
No. It's a character
What kind of vision?
I didn't have a vision!
You really need to get your story straight
4. Hermione Granger, Harry Potter: Without Hermione, Harry Potter would never have got anywhere. She's intelligent, funny and keeps her cool when the boys lose their heads
I heard you just then
What you said under your breath
I didn't say anything
You said “even if she does like cats”
No, I didn't!
You have a problem with Hermione liking cats?
I don't have any problem with Hermione liking cats
That's not a thing
It is a thing. You're one. You're a catist
I'm not a catist
So it is a thing then
CATIST IS NOT A THING
You just said you weren't one
So it must be a thing for you to declare you're not one
I hate you
5. Princess Leia, Star Wars: She's a kick-ass princess, a brave soldier and an amazing leader
She sounds cool
What do you mean?
What do you mean, what do I mean?
What do you mean, she SOUNDS cool?
Yeah... but that makes it seem like you haven't seen the Star Wars movies
I haven't seen the movies
Are you ok? You've gone pale
You haven't seen the movies?
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIES?
QUICK! WE HAVE TO GO!
Downstairs, where the television lives!!
Ok, you have to stop saying cringe things like that
You know what this means?
I literally have no idea what's going on. Why are you shaking?
STAR WARS MARATHON
Your face is now bright red
I'll go get the Nutella
You need to calm down
I'M SO EXCITED!
I am terrified
Enough with this stupid list, we have to go!!
You're scaring me
YOU ARE IN FOR SUCH A TREAT
I suddenly think I'm busy
COME ON SLOW COACH!
Why are we friends?
