Freaky in Fresno is such a cute and fun read!! It’s full of nostalgia, silliness, love and family that all create such a touching book. ...more
FREAKY IN FRESNO is a spin on the old novel, FREAKY FRIDAY. Ricki (nickname for Lyric) had a falling out with her cousin and BFF, Lana, a few years earlier. Without much explanation, Lana seemed to no longer want to hang out with her. It coincided with the time her youtube makeup channel, Lookie Lana, really took off. The channel got so big, she might have endorsement deals, and her mother quit her job to be a full-time manager.
Cousin Relationships: These aren't seen enough in fiction and it was nice to see how they didn't get along at the beginning and how they grew throughout the story.
The Writing: The style was pretty good and the pacing was even.
The Concept: On the last page, I still struggled to wrap my mind around what was happening in this book.
The Ending: A lot of action ...more
When two polar opposite cousins inherit a pink convertible from their aunt, they must work it out on how to share it. Ricki, a horror movie extraordinaire, has been pining over a crush who she’s been working with to help revamp the local drive-in. Lana, a beauty queen blogger, has an important social event to attend to boost her followers. When the drive-in reopening and the event end up on the same night, these two fight for who gets the darn car. But, what happens instead? A Freaky Friday ...more
I enjoyed the author's book Pretty in Punxsutawney so much, I couldn't wait to read this one. I thoroughly enjoyed this send up of the Freaky Friday movies! I thought it was interesting that the author chose to tell this from only one of the girl's perspectives, but it totally worked. In some ways, Ricki was the emotionally "healthier" one of the two (not entirely, but at ...more
Overall, this was a pretty cute and fun read! It took me a little while to fully connect to the story and the characters, but by the time I approached the middle, I was invested. It's a fun, very modern take on Freaky Friday, with a "switch" between two cousins who don't get along. As an only child who grew up close to her cousins, I loved this take.
While very fun and parts ...more
All in all, while I still think I prefer Pretty in ...more
I was just saddened by the way Ricki treats Jake and hoped in the end for a different behavior from him. Apart from this detail, I loved all the love stories that permeate the story, the drama involving the car and the drive-in and the powerful presence of the evil Chihuahua.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
I wanted to love this book i really did but it just fell flat. I pretty much skimmed the last 30% i just couldn't relate and the characters just seemed i don't know off to me.
please give this book a chance i just think i hyped this book up way to much in my head
A book about two girls who were close but separated. Their bodies are switched and they must work together in order to be back to who they were.
This was a cute, simple read. It was very enjoyable and really fun to read. I enjoyed the story of how the girls, Ricki and Lana, weren't close together in a relationship as before but after the body switched their lives changed. The author wrote this story well and everything was ...more
