Book review +giveaway: Glee: Foreign Exchange by Sophia Lowell

This is the second official Glee novel, check out my review of the first novel(a Glee prequel) The Beginning.

My summary:
A French glee club is visiting the glee club at McKinley High. Can Rachel handle the competition? Why does Kurt get all the girls? Will Finn runaway to France with his new crush?

My thoughts:
As I've said before I love, LOVE Glee and I very much enjoyed reading the first Glee novel so when this one showed up in my mailbox I had to read it ASAP. 

This time the Glee kids is in for a surprise, but how will things work out when the French Glee club arrive at McKinley High? Mr. Schuster assigns each of his Glee members to a French student, they are going to show the French students around school and make sure they'll have a good time. The plot sounded great to and to some extent it was. Puck tried every trick he could think of to get a cool French girl to be his girlfriend. Rachel and Quinn both had issues with Finn getting assigned with the hottest French girl(she wasn't just hot but also a talented singer, you can only guess what went through Rachel's mind). We got to see more of Artie which was great. 

While Foreign Exchange was entertaining it just didn't have the same Glee-feeling as the the first novel. Something was missing and I hope Lowell is aware of that and that the same wonderful feeling is back on paper in the third official Glee novel, Summer Break, when it hits the stores in July this year.

The cover:
Nice and colorful, it just makes you happy + it's a picture of some of my fav Glee characters!

My rating of this book:
3 stars out of 5 - it was ok.

I'm giving away my copies(that means that they're used copies) of the first two books in this series. If you would like to read the books just leave a comment below and make sure to include your email. The contest is international and ends March 24th.
