The election results are in—and totally UnExpected. Now the UnPops are picketing, the Pops are preening, and Paisley’s sophomore year is a bust—again. But when best frienemy Jen’s reputation takes a beating by viral text, Paisley’s pity party is over. She rolls out a new undercover plan to save Jen’s rep, and in the process, follows her heart into a crazy complicated love triangle. Then as if things weren’t confusing enough, Paisley’s archrival—super cute, super nice, super popular Candy Esposito—steals Paisley’s UnPop popularity! First Paisley gets mad; then she gets smart. Can she use Candy’s newfound UnPopularity to save Jen’s reputation—and pull off the biggest coup since Miss UnPleasant turned the Pleasant Hill High social hierarchy on its big fat head? Hello double-crossers, good-bye double standards! Paisley Hanover is back—pucker up!

The second book in the Paisley Hanover series; witty, fun and relatable.

Picking right up the story from book 1, Paisley Hanover Kisses & Tells continues to focus on the election and how Paisley increase power of the Unpops. With the same hilarious and sort of weird narration, the book surely satisfies fans of Miss Unpleasant and/or those that hope for a revolution at high school.

Just like, Paisley Hanover Acts Out, this book is fast-paced and eventful. Every chapter brings in something new and Paisley can't stop dealing with/creating more trouble for her life. Like the unexpected result from the president, her old bestfriend almost broke up or how she got herself into a love triangle.

What to love about this book? Probably the crazy but fun spot. But the main attraction, of course, is the characters. Each and every character is very intriguing (even Paisley's parents or Charlie). Paisley, as stated in the first book review, is a character readers will want to befriend with for her insanity and awesomeness at the same time. Her trouble in love life makes her even more believable in this book. Other characters are just as fun and I'm glad to get to know more about Hutch this time. He's not that bad after all.

The only complaint I have is the lack of Miss Unpleasant's thoughtful articles in this book. They were so interesting to read in the first one. Hopefully we'll see them back in the next book.

Rating: 3.5/55

Too cutesy for my taste. Thanks for the review though.
