No just... Please no...
Zoey is just... Not a nice girl. Okay, it's like this: Imagine Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way with Eric Cartman's personality.
With that being said the authors *insist* on writing her as the ideal high school girl and the fact they think this is how a teen girl acts is ignorant. I anything this book teaches it's normal for teen girls to be super mean and everyone will girl LOVE you for it.
First, Zoey's friend Kayla (remember her?). Instead of *trying* to make amends with her friend she just drops her and we hear that Kayla is a skank now. That brings me to my next point; Zoey is just a freakin' hypocrite! She shames Aphrodite for being a slut (has two boyfriends at two seperare times) while she has not one, not two, but THREE boyfriends AT ONCE.
Next, the racism and homophobia. The casts go on and about how IT'S OKAY TO BE GAY and IT'S OKAY THAT BLACK PEOPLE DATE OTHER RACES, OKAY! Yet Damien is horribly a walking stereotype, and Zoey kills two black people because they are "stereotypical black guys." Um.. Okay Zoey. Oh, and btw if you're a Christian you are a narrow-minded, intolerant meanie! Uuuugghhh! You are terrible! You don't agree with Zoey!!
Next I got so tired of the Casts opinions of EVERYTHING. You starve yourself and hate your body, you're a freak. That's it. You are a big FREAK. You do pot, you are a stupid waste of space. Yep. That's what you are.
Heck, we even get Zoey's opinion on *eyeliner* Girls, you can't wear too much. Zoey says no and Zoey's word is law. If you don't agree with Zoey you are wrong and you should be outcasted. You hear that? OUTCASTED YOU UNWORTHY!!
Long story short: I could go on and on about how terrible this book is. It is so interesting and it sucks because of Zoey and the Casts terrible writing. It's such a sad waste.
Zoey makes me seriously angry. Her bigotry and self-righteousness made me want to cry tears of rage and go on a swearing rampage.
So if you like a mean, bigoted Mary Sue, then you'll looooove Zoey and this book.
Oh lastly: The spelling of the word "ho" is cringeworthy.
