Sumpah. Semua yang kuceritakan di buku ini adalah yang sebenar-benarnya. Bukan cuma soal sekolahku, “Deadwood” High, tapi juga perseteruanku dengan Carla Santini waktu bersaing memperebutkan peran mahapenting dalam drama sekolah. Bahkan, hal-hal yang sepertinya amat sangat tidak mungkin sampai-sampai kau bakal mengira aku hanya mengarang-ngarang, semua itu benar-benar terj ...more

3.30 average rating?? Oh come on, people! This book was outrageously funny! So what if this book will never be required reading in high schools or that it will never be remembered as a vital work of literature? That was never the author's intent. This is just a fun story about a shallow girl who can't stop lying and/or looking for drama. Besides, did I mention it's funny?? Sheesh, this book gets an easy 5 stars purely for A- NOT putting on its "literary airs" and B- Simply being a fun read.

My friends say that I'm such a drama queen. And that's why I was interested to read this book.

Oh WOW, Lola is a REAL drama queen. Me is nothing compares to her.

So the girl in this book is actually named Mary Elizabeth, but she preferred to be called (and asked everyone to call her) as Lola. She loves drama. And thinking that ordinary life is not for her, she creates drama of her own life. For example, instead of telling the truth to Ella (her best, and seems to be her only) friend about her par

Meh. I picked this up for .10 at a yard sale, otherwise I probably never would have read it. I remember the movie from when I was younger, so I thought it could be a quick mindless read. It was pretty annoying though. For one thing, I disliked how the protagonist lied over the stupidest things just for the heck of it. Also, the author had a very juvenile writing style and the editing was horrendous. Definitely not reading the sequels.

I had to rush straight to my computer to write this!! I just purchased a copy of Dyan Sheldon's: Confessions of a Teenage Drama queen for 20p from a local charity shop!!! whooooop!! I'll be completely honest with you, I fell in love with the movie, purchased the dvd and can quote every line (YES... IT'S THAT ADDICTIVE!) but I never knew that it was based on a book! I never knew the novel was out there *smacks hand* I stood in awe looking at it before I grabbed it. The film was amazing, and Linds ...more
Mary Elizabeth, a.k.a. Lola, is accustomed to playing the starring role in the fascinating production that is her life. Her pottery-making single mom and bratty twin sisters are merely bit players in Lola's dramatic existence. But all this changes when she is forced to move from her beloved Manhattan to the boring suburbs of New Jersey. According to Lola, "living in the suburbs is like being dead, only with cable TV and pizza delivery." The worst part is that someone has already snagged the cove ...more

I read this book a couple of years ago as Disney made a movie out of it, and if a book has been made into a movie, I like to try and read the book first. I have mixed feelings about this book. The movie is cute, and there are some basic ideas in place which are fun, but I thought the execution was poor.

Lola was a huge challenge for me as a character in both the book and the movie. In each she came across as melodramatic and self-centered. I don't remember the ending of the book, but by the end o

I must admit, this was a lovely quick read. A real pick me up too.

I wanted to read this as an easy, light hearted read after I finished a serious book previously. It did not disappoint.

I finished this in 3 sittings. Outrageous and unbelievable, Lola keeps the humorous story line flowing with her tales of woe and triumph.

I was also interested in how it differed from the film staring Lindsay Lohan (I am a big fan of the film, a little bit of a guilty pleasure). The film has kept very true to the

“Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” is one of my co-blogger’s favorite books, and even though I’ve already seen the movie with Lindsay Lohan, I decided to take a look at the source material, especially because Ella said the ending would be different from the film. I definitely wasn’t disappointed: “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” promises a light romp through the social jungle of high school life through the eyes of one eccentric teenager, and it definitely does deliver.

Dyan Sheldon 's "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" was enjoyable to read although it was cliche in my opinion. I could almost predict what would happen in the next pages and it didn't make me excited to continue to read. It was interesting to read through and slowly get to know the characters' personalities. The main character named Lola has an 'enemy' that is definitely a drama queen and I can relate to how the other students would feel around her. She's quite the character. Also it was a j ...more

Lola Cep is the new girl at Dellwood High school, or as she likes to call it (Deadwood). Originally from New York, Lola thinks, dresses, and is very different from most of the other studentes in New Jersey. When her favorite band, Sidhartha breaks up, Lola and new friend Ella do everything in their power to make it to their last concert while also proving Dellwoods' resident drama queen; Carla Santini. Witty, sarcastic, and told from the viewpoint of an adolescent. I'm giving it two stars becaus ...more
