Review – The Other Girl by Sarah Miller

The Other Girl by Sarah Miller

Molly McGarry seems to have it all – she’s smart, she attends the prestigious Midvale Academy and she’s finally got the guy of her dreams, Gideon Rayburn. But now everything’s changing.

Molly and Gid got together in a very unusual way, when Molly mysteriously entered Gid’s mind and so could ‘guess’ exactly what he wanted. By a bizarre twist of fate, Molly suddenly leaves Gid’s mind and enters the mind of Pilar Benitez-Jones, possibly the hottest girl in the world. Pilar flirts with Gid. A lot. No longer inside her boyfriend’s head, Molly feels life is spiralling out of control. But she realises that being inside Pilar’s head has its advantages as she influences Pilar for her own schemes – with ensuing chaos.

The glamorous and sexy second Midvale Academy novel.

This novel tells the story of Molly McGarry, who attends posh boarding school, Midvale Academy. Being able to tell what you’re boyfriend is thinking seems good, right? Yes, that’s what Molly thinks. Until Molly stops being herself, and tries to make herself how she thinks Gid wants her to be. This leads to a break up, but then Molly somehow gets inside his new girlfriend’s mind. You’d think that would be bad, and it was at first…but it does have it advantages!

This was a very gripping novel, with other mysterious storylines weaved into it. It was an amazing book with a very unique storyline, but it wasn’t very realistic. Some of the things the teachers did weren’t what real ones would do at all! It was still a very enjoyable read, though, and I really, really, really hope there’s a sequel! There were a few faults to this novel, but other than that, it really is a novel worth reading.

I LOVE THE COVER! I wouldn’t change a thing! It’s quite simple, but that’s what makes it stand out. The real girl on the cover just adds to the brilliant-ness and she is just how I imagined Molly.

Some of this book’s content isn’t really suitable for younger readers, and there is a lot of sex and drugs in it, so I would recommend this book for 13+ although it depends what you’re used to reading/allowed to read. I give this awesome novel a rating of 5/5 stars!
