The It Girl: Don't Tell the Bridesmaid

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?

'Fans of Geek Girl will love this!' - Top of the Pops

Anna Huntley's top 5 fictional heroines of all time

With commentary by Jess Delby

(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?

Yes

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

HOBBITS

Whatever. This woman is an elf because she's played by Liv Tyler who has those weird ears stuck to her head

THAT'S ARWEN

Same thing

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

Wrong

What?

That's wrong

What's wrong?

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

Sure

She doesn't!!

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

Really?

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

MOVING ON

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

Heard what?

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

You're catist

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

I'M NOT

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?

She does

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?

Anna...

YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIES?

I...

QUICK! WE HAVE TO GO!

Go where??

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?
