He’s So Not Worth It by Kieran Scott is about a girl, named Ally, who could not be more thrilled to start her summer. She is frustrated because of certain ongoing events in her life. Ally’s mother, for one, wants to spend two months down at the shore with her boyfriend (who Ally dislikes). Her Dad, missing for three years, suddenly decides to come back into town. He wants to spend time with his daughter while trying to fix all the mistakes he made in the past. Even better, all of Ally’s “old” friends (better known as the Cresties-snobbish, rich people) are now her enemies. She hates them now. She also hates her ex-boyfriend, Jake for siding with them. Meanwhile, Jake decides to spend his summer studying, working at a local coffee shop, and trying to get Ally’s attention. He didn’t mean to hurt her and is trying to rectify things now. This book is definitely a favorite and I do recommend it because many youngsters could relate to what Ally, the main character, goes through with “frenemies”, parental pressure, boyfriend issues and many other such issues and events that are part and parcel of our day to day lives. This book is for all readers interested in everyday drama, and whirlwind life of a young girl called Ally.
