Mickey’s thrilled to have some female friends for a change. But things get a little too close for comfort when her mom goes and hires Lizbeth to work at the salon. Mickey’s worried that Lizbeth is stealing her thunder. After all, Lizbeth is everything Mickey isn’t-outgoing, bubbly, and quick-on-her-feet. But when Mickey tries too hard to outshine her, things backfire in a hair-raising way!
This book was so cute! It was the fun mishaps and mayhems of a twelve year old girl. I was instantly transported back to when I was that age, and I remember going through so many of the same things, just not in a hair salon.
While this may be book 2 in the series, it is definitely not necessary to read them in order. I read Foiled before I read Blowout, and they both made perfect sense.
I loved Mickey’s story. I definitely experienced so many of the same things when I was her age, and still today I find myself in those situations. I loved the message that it also told along the way. All the bumps in the road for Mickey led to an ultimatum that she realized, and it helped her grow closer to others.
I really enjoyed Morris’s writing style. It really made Foiled fun to read. The characters were also a joy. I loved Jonah and Eve. Both of them were just really great characters.
I would definitely recommend this one! After reading Foiled, I am super excited to check out other works by Taylor Morris. I loved her writing style and this story was just too cute.
Cover Rating: A- I think this cover is just too cute, just like the inside of the book :)
