Bonjour Girl-ARC Review

Bonjour GirlDating, fashion, and drama: Clementine never has a dull day at the Parsons School of Design.

When Clementine Liu arrives in New York City to study at the Parsons School of Design, she knows that she’s found
her place. It isn’t long before she meets her fashionista soulmate, the loud and charismatic Jake, and Jonathan, a dreamy fashion photographer that turns her world upside down.

Between schoolwork and glitzy fashion shows, Clementine launches a blog, Bonjour Girl, and her wit, originality, and flair quickly catapult the site to cult status. Unfortunately, this comes with a price: Clementine is faced with online abuse and public humiliation. In the midst of all the drama, she finds out that a classmate is not what she seems, and Clementine has to find a way to save both her reputation and Jake’s fashion collection.

MY THOUGHTS

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a digital arc in exchange for an honest Review!  

This story revolves around bullying which Clementine who is Chinese/French and her friends faced. This book is loaded with fashion and celebrities references and I didn’t get most of them. The topic of the book was inspirational as well as Clementine’s aim.

I didn’t get why every relationship in this book was too quick, what was the hurry? Love, Friendship or Hate everything was too quick. That is one of the reasons I didn’t relate to characters it just felt too fake.

Starting was promising but it just lost somewhere even before the half of the book, All the blog diversity theme became minor and catfight, bullying, cafes, drama, dates became the highlight.

I didn’t get Jake and Clementine so-called friendship, the way Jake throw a Tantrum in start it was unacceptable, and why scholarship was so important to cover? so they can go for lunch, dinner, brunch in fancy restaurants?

Same goes with Jonathon and Clementine, just met and become “A COUPLE”? , on the first date who shares school problems with a stranger…Well…Clementine 😐

The ending was so fake and ideal.

I enjoy some parts of it but not the whole book.

  11. Pity the book didn’t like up to your expectations. I’m not sure I would get the fashion references either. Not really my scene. Great review.
