What's a girl to do when her older sister is a T2P2 (totally perfect person), while she is an "advertisement for average"? Start a blog, of course! In short, blog-style entries, Meg writes to three online friends about the special art program she is chosen for; school friendship problems; her resentment of her popular sister, Cara; and being a PK (preacher's kid). Soon, though, Meg reports more serious concerns, and the book really hits its stride: Cara develops a rapidly escalating eating disorder, and as her family struggles to cope, Meg feels even more invisible. Teens dealing with a sibling's serious problems will respond strongly to Megan's authentic mix of emotions. A message-driven subplot of whether to reveal a confided secret isn't wholly effective, and the three blogger friends never develop strong separate identities; it is Meg's efforts to find her own path in the midst of a family crisis that are the book's strength. The blog-style format provides high teen appeal, and a glossary of abbreviations is provided to assist the electronically clueless.
