I'll admit, I only bought this book because I read the first two a couple years ago, and figured I should read the last one as well. I honestly don't remember the first two being so annoying. The nicknames, made up words, and text talk made it horrible. The characters are in no way relateble. By the third page, I knew I hated the book. By chapter three, I was able to figure out how it would end... but I had assumptions before chapter 1 finished. I don't recommend this book to anyone. The only young adults I could see possibly reading this would be 6th graders, if that.

Accidentally Fabulous is the 3rd in a series about a young fashionista named Imogene. I have not read the first two in the series. The book would probably be more suited to young readers (probably 11-14)

The book is a bit hard to read as the main character is not sympathetic. I think I would've liked the book a bit more if the protagonist was at least a little bit intelligent. She is supposed to be 17, but she sounds more like a 12 year old. It started to get annoying listening to her talk about how special she is, and then to get so much attention/perks/etc, seemingly without reason, just kind of made me kind of grumbly about young people (did I really just call them that?!) and their sense of entitlement. I suppose if you think Paris Hilton or any "Celebutante" who is just famous for being famous is great, this book would be pretty awesome.

What I did like is that the book is easy to read, so if you are looking for mindless fluff, it would make a great beach read. Also, throughout the book there are cute drawings by Daily Candy's illustrator, Sujean Rim. Even though I am an adult, I love books with illustrations in them (and these ones are even in colour!!!!)
When Imogene and her BFF Evie head for Hollywood to attend Fashion Camp, they expected a fashion filled summer. Imogene lives for fashion and keeps a blog of her doings at Hautelaw, only the most fashion forward fashion forecasting business, a blog that has an ever widening fan base. Imogene, being Imogene, cannot help but chat everyone she sees and soon she is being shopped for a film. What about Fashion Camp....or better yet...what about BFF Evie? In the fast paced and publicity driven world of Hollywood, Inogene isn't sure who or what she can believe. Left behind in all this excitement is BFF Evie, who doesn't seem to be happy about Imogene's sudden fame. All Imogene has ever wanted is to be in fashion, and to be famous. Now it seems to be within her reach and she has to decide is it all worth it? Will she have to leave her BFF behind?

Accidentally fabulous is a sweet tale of many girl's secret fantasy. With only implied romance and very benign romance at that, this is a fun read for a preteen or young teen. With enough currant celebrity name dropping, this third installment of Imogene's absolutely fabulous life is a fun read..
This is just one reader's opinion...

I'm a fan of books geared toward tweens. I remember really enjoying Babysitter's Club and the like when I was younger, though I'm sure adults around me might have thought is pointless.

Maybe I"m just getting old, who knows, but I wasn't impressed with the structure of this book.

It read like listening to tween/teen girls talk (texting included). I imagine this style would be fluid for girls currently of this age group, but it was too jarring for me to enjoy the read.

That and it was really superficial. Okay, there are PLENTY of bubblegum books like this for adults, but I don't read those either.

Generally disappointed.
Imogene and her BFF, Evie, vow to make headlines at Fantasy Fashion Camp in L.A. Imogene's nervous because she rarely finishes a project, but together they are unstoppable.

However, things go awry when Imogene's spotted as the Hautlaw girl at a fashion show. Immediately, she's whisked to the front row, leaving Evie behind.

This creates a snowball effect and now Imogene's invited to parties. She worries about leaving her BFF behind, but Hollywood is calling her name and she'd be stupid to not take advantage of her opportunity.

Imogene has to decide if her friendship or Hollywood is more important.

The third book in THE FASHION-FORWARD ADVENTURES OF IMOGENE series follows A GIRL LIKE MOI and PROJECT PARIS. Each book follows Imogene in a new city with disasters arriving in her wake. The cute illustrations accent the fun story line.
