Sometimes life gets messy.

After a rocky start in Spoiled, Brooke Berlin and her newly discovered half-sister, Molly Dix, have settled into something like sisterly love, but the drama is far from over.

Now that Brooke’s caught a taste of fame and her movie star father’s attention, she wants to launch a blog that will position her as the ultimate Hollywood insider. But between schoolwork, party-planning committee meetings, and spa treatments, she hardly has the time to write it herself.

Enter Max McCormack, an aspiring author with a terrible after-school job pushing faux meat on the macrobiotic masses of La-La Land. Max reluctantly agrees to play Brooke’s ghost-blogger for an impressive salary, and the site takes off, but how long can their lie last? In person, Brooke can’t live up to the intellectual wit of openbrooke.com, and Max soon begins to resent hiding her genius behind a bandage dress–wearing blonde. Can the girls work together to stay on top, or will the truth come out and ruin everything they’ve built?

Quotes & Awards

  • “A stylish standalone sequel to Spoiled.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Hilarious…All of the characters have well-developed personalities, and teens will want to be along for any future adventures.”

    School Library Journal

  • “On one level, there are enough witty observations and laugh-out-loud lines to make this about as much fun as you can have reading a book. But at its heart, this is an engaging, well-plotted story about two girls who are not as different as they seem, each one struggling in her own way with self-image, unrequited love, loyalty to friends, and dreams for a better future.”

    VOYA

  • “This engaging, entertaining follow-up companion to Spoiled features plenty of snark, style, and Hollywood-centric satire, but also sympathy for the girls as they navigate familiar issues like wanting parental approval and pursuing their dreams.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mundi | 2/19/2014

    " This was a fun summer read from celebrity fashion bloggers the Fug Girls. Something of a sequel to their first book, Spoiled, Messy is a YA story centered around the children of the rich and famous and is full of Hollywood insider information and pop culture references. As a bonus, it also has interesting and well-drawn characters and a nicely paced (if predictable) plot. It was just what I needed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian | 2/18/2014

    " Still not a great book, but better than the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela Ribon | 2/18/2014

    " Fun, silly, fast-paced and funny, Heather and Jessica once again take readers on a fun ride through some Hollywood ups and downs. Unforgettable, sassy characters and a love triangle within a love triangle keep the pages flipping. Perfect for the bathtub. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 2/10/2014

    " The Fug girls have no great claims on literary genius. They don't turn a phrase in a poetic way, they don't create characters that will always stick with you, they don't gesture to truths that resonate in your heart. They do mock contemporary celebrity culture with glee, they do make you giggle, they do engross you in a slight but engaging tale. So if you're looking for the former, don't bother. If you're looking for the latter... go right ahead and read this book. It's a quick read, like a people magazine, at any rate. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Blake Anderson | 2/8/2014

    " I attempted, read the first couple of pages, got bored, and stopped. I did like the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa #1 Mahomie!!! | 2/7/2014

    " Loved this book! I love Brady so much! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/3/2014

    " I loved every second of this, even more than Spoiled. To be a total cliche, it made me LOL and also made me cry. Way to go, Fug Girls! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vroom | 1/28/2014

    " Far superior to Spoiled, Messy is charming, fast-paced, and a guilty delight. The Fug girls have out-cabotted Meg, shifting this volume's focus from cornpone Molly to snarky Max. Countdown to a movie deal in three...two... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/16/2014

    " Always a sucker for a Cyrano de Bergerac-type of plot, and combined with The Fug Girl's humor, this was a fun (and funny) summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 12/21/2013

    " Not as good as the first one. Max was kinda annoying. Points for the One Tree Hill shoutout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine | 11/13/2013

    " This book was so much fun. The characters were all complete people, not cardboard stereotypes, and the story was a delight to follow. Loved Max, Molly, the boys, and even Brooke. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 7halm_emma | 11/7/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was really funny like the last book. I also liked how they showed a different character's perspective on the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin | 10/13/2013

    " Love those Fug Girls!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rayliene | 9/1/2013

    " Not as good as the first one, but for being a chick read it was pretty decent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 7/26/2013

    " Loved it as much as I did the first book. It's fluffy and hillarious, a great light read, especially when you're stressed "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/7/2013

    " I love the Fug Girls and devoured this in an evening. Light, fun and hyper pop culture literate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 6/28/2013

    " Read this in like a day. Cute follow-up to "Spoiled." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariana | 4/10/2013

    " My main complaint is that I wanted more Molly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 3/9/2013

    " Nice follow-up to Spoiled. Fun and funny. I like how it focuses on Molly's friend Max. Wonder if they'll bring another character into the fold for Book #3, like maybe Brooke's assistant Brie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 1/30/2013

    " Ew - you changed the narrator from your first to your second book. And the narrative voice doesn't change at all. Doesn't work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Limeminearia | 1/11/2013

    " Like watching Clueless. Pretty fun, if you like that sort of thing. I do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 9/17/2012

    " Excellent brain candy...witty and fun. "
