Meet Zoey

She's eleven. Well, almost eleven. Okay—halfway to eleven. And Zoey's got a few problems: She has the lowest possible score on the coolability meter, a bad hair situation, and growing earlobes. What Zoey needs is a fairy godmother who can give her a very chic makeover and a seat at the primo lunch table. Will Zoey be able to pull it all off? Tune in!

I am 13 years old and this book was sort of confusing. Zoey is always backspacing herself and adding all these side notes it is annoying and hard to read.Maybe this book is good for ten and under...

I didn't like it at all. I found it to be boring and confusing (and I'm 13!) and it seemed to have no plot. The book ends without anything interesting or suspensefull happening. The book was also only 64 pages long including many badly drawn illustrations and an italian dictionary that take up most of the pages in the book. This book is nothing like dork diaries. I do not recommend this book to anyone.

This cute variation on The Ugly Duckling doesn¿t have the duck turn into a swan, but even better: it has all the swans admiring the duck. Zoey Zinevich is almost eleven and thinks she needs a Fairy Godmother to help her transition to sixth grade, which is only six months away. She wants to be ¿cool¿ instead of a ¿geek¿ and to be accepted by the cool crowd. In the end, she is ¿discovered¿ by a magazine for girls as the embodiment of ¿geek chic¿ and it is Zoey who is now the object of awe around the school.Stylistically, the book is tailor-made for the media generation. Variations in format and font characterize the text, and there are amusing illustrations throughout. Zoey¿s concerns seem right on for a girl of her age. The vocabulary is full of ¿girl-speak¿ but offers some intellectual challenges intermixed with words like ¿primo¿ and ¿coolability.¿My snobby side wanted not to like Geek Chic, but I couldn¿t help myself; Zoey and her indomitable spirit won me over.

Zoey Zinevich is almost eleven and counting down the days until she starts middle school, even though its 198 days away. First thing on her list to do: become chic and befriend the Bashleys so she doesn¿t have to sit at table 10. This dream seems to at a standstill until a magazine comes to school to take pictures and changes Zoey¿s perspectives on chic. Zoey shines in this classic tale of wanting to fit in. Palatini does a great job of updating the tale to include current behavior of children in that age range e.g. the use of a youtube like scheme incorporated into the illustrations. Great for everyone who always wanted a fairy godmother but got something completely different.

Eleven year-old Zoey wishes for a fairy godmother to help her accessorize correctly, tame her hair, and help her earlobes stop growing. In this funny and endearing look at elementary kids today, readers discover new terms like "coolability" and "snoozerama". At the center of the story is the age old desire to be popular in school. Told through a combination of graphic style novels and traditional chapter writing, this fun and often goofy book is a read best for young girls.
