So this book finally got delivered, phew, and I could continue with this series (as I got book 1 and 3 from Boekenfestijn, but didn’t have book 2). This time we have a battle of the bands, a cute popstar, friendship, and much more.
This time our girls are going to enter a Bands competition! Not only because they want to be a fabulous band, oh no, they also want a chance to meet with a very cutie popstar named Tootie Cuti (really that name :P). And so it all starts. They need fabulous clothes, they need a band name, they need to make a demo, well, you get the idea. Of course not everything goes smoothly, Lola makes decisions of her own, the other girls have to get used to Angel (she is quite a whirlwind). It was really fun to read how the girls were trying their best to make something awesome.
I also liked the mom in this one. It seems yoga dad has a good influence on the mom. She is much nicer, friendlier, and caring. I am still hoping that yoga dad and Lola’s mom get together, they would make a cute couple. 🙂
It take me a bit longer to read as the way the girls talk is a bit off/weird for me. That is not a bad thing though, I did think it was quite fun/creative how the girls talked, but since I am not used to anyone talking like that, it takes me longer to read through the book.
I am not going to discuss the girls again, already did that in the first review. 🙂 But I will list my fav girls for this book from most to least: Lola, Bella, Sadie, Angel (sorry, Angel, but your tude is a bit too much at times).
I did think the rival band to the Rainbow Hearts in the Battle of the Bands was a bit roll eyes worthy. Really, couldn’t it been someone else? It had to be them? It just felt a bit too cliche, a bit too coincidental. So yeah, not really my fav part of the book. Though I did like what happened to them, yep, Karma will come around.
The book is still dotted with illustrations, and I still absolutely love the style. Cute, sassy, fun, sweet, but there is one thing that was a bit odd to me. You can see Angel with a microphone in a few of the pictures while it was quickly determined that singing + Angel = a big pink no no. So I wonder why she isn’t shown with her tambourine, as she is the dancing tam tam girl of the group.
Given what happens at the Battle of the Bands I can just guess what the next book will be about. I can’t wait to see if I am right, luckily I won’t have to wait long, I am going to start the book quite quickly after I finish this review.
I would recommend this book!
