Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen by Dyan SheldonThis book was nice, as annoyed as I was getting with how dramatic Lola is, even in her narration. Although I feel like I should have anticipated this, the book IS called confessions of a teenage drama queen. Maybe its because Im an adult, but I definitely identified more with Ella than Lola. I kept getting frustrated by Lolas compounding lies and self-pity. I could see how teenagers might identify with being soooo misunderstood, but now I just found myself getting annoyed. Not sure that I would recommend this one.
Robin: Mary Elizabeth Cep Lindsay Lohan , or, as she prefers to be called, Lola, sees herself as and up and coming star of the Broadway stage when her mother moves the family from Manhattan to the wilds of suburban New Jersey. These two factors are going to have a positive effect on the opening weekend box office for this latest Disney venture. Be forewarned. There is little to nothing in this film that will appeal to anyone except maybe the most undiscriminating 8-toyear old girls out there. Theatrically-bent Lola is forced to abandon her beloved Manhattan when her free-spirited, pottery-making, single mom, Karen Glenn Headley , ups and moves her little family to Dellwood, NJ. The flamboyant teen dresses in her own unique fashion and heads off for her first day at her new high school where she just knows that she will be popular — until she meets the alpha female of her class, Carla Santini Megan Fox.
At school, Lola makes friends with an unpopular girl, Ella Gerard , who shares her love for the rock band Sidarthur. Lola idolizes the band's lead singer Stu Wolff. She also meets Sam, a cute boy who takes a liking to her, and makes enemies with Carla Santini , the most popular girl in school. Afraid of being one-upped by Carla, Lola falsely claims that she and Ella have tickets, too. She loses her chance to buy tickets and new clothes when her mother takes away her allowance, and the concert is sold out by the time she persuades Ella to pay for the tickets.
It was released in late February to negative critical reaction, but was a modest commercial success, reaching number two in the United States box office behind Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore 's 50 First Dates. She narrates the story. Much to her annoyance, she moves with her family to the suburbs of Dellwood, New Jersey , but she confidently tells the audience, "A legend is about to be born. That legend would be me. At school, Lola makes friends with an unpopular girl, Ella Gerard Alison Pill , who shares her love for the rock band Sidarthur. Lola idolizes the band's lead singer, Stu Wolff Adam Garcia. She also meets Sam Eli Marienthal , a cute boy who takes a liking to her, and makes enemies with Carla Santini Megan Fox , the most popular girl in school.
Grew Up… in the center of the world, New York City. Lola sees herself as a sophisticated New Yorker who thrives on the chaos of city life.
