Kurzbeschreibung

2. April 2009
Alison Cole's got it all: She's gorgeous, dating a steamy surfer boy, and has just been crowned Beverly Hills High Freshman Class President. Then during a special "symmetry" surgery, a lightning bolt zaps her, and Alison instantly transforms into Hottie - that is, a totally sizzling superhero with the power to shoot fire from her fingers!

Shunned as a Pyro-Freak, Alison must adopt dorky David Eels as her crime-fi ghting sidekick. Worse, she's falling for the one guy who wants to "extinguish" her forever, Junior Class President of Cuteness - and wannabe fi refi ghter - T. Hull. But she doesn't realize that a supervillain's lurking. . . .

Has Hottie met her match?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Teens Read Too 28. Februar 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
I had to seriously ponder what category to place HOTTIE into when starting my review. I opted for the easy out with "contemporary," but HOTTIE is one of those books that could easily fall under "thriller" or "action-adventure." And if necessary, "comics" could even be applied, after knowing the premise of the story.

Alison Cole seemingly has it all. She's just won the election for freshman class president. Fortunately, it helps to have a film crew following your every move in the hopes of your own TV show. Unfortunately, her two best friends, who should be celebrating with her, are secretly plotting her downfall.

When her two (supposed) best friends, Kellyn and Dorinda, convince her that she needs plastic surgery to make her face symmetrical, the procedure is interrupted during a freak storm. It isn't until Alison gets into a cat-fight at Barneys with teen brat Treasure Spinney that the result of the procedure shows itself.

Alison gets so upset that flames shoot from her fingers.

At first, Alison doesn't realize it was her fault, but after another freak event in her boyfriend's car, and finally a blow up at a nightclub, Alison starts to put two and two together. To prevent backlash, her dad and her evil step-mom, Carmen, force her into therapy. And the school decides she needs a few days off to let the bad press die down. When she returns to school, Alison discovers she's become the school's pariah.

The only person she can turn to is David Eels, a loser geek that jumped out in a superhero costumer during her presidential thank you speech. David can't believe someone like Alison would come to him, but it's the perfect combination.

David can't believe someone like Alison would come to him, but it's the perfect combination. David is a superhero fanatic and immediately helps Alison create an alter-ego persona once he learns of her ability.

As the two form a bond and start to battle the evil in L.A., Alison and her step-mom form a tentative truce. Alison helps with plans for Carmen's Christmas Ball event. All the elite rich will be in attendance. Little does either Alison or David know that the most evil of all, that which they've dubbed "Wettie," will also be in attendance.

HOTTIE is definitely one of those books that can appeal to many audiences. With its superheroes, hot chicks, catty girls, and all the drama high school has to offer, what's not to enjoy? The book was a riot to read and a fun time all the way until the final page.

This is the type of story that leaves you whining for a sequel.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Hottie: Not A Hot read 8. Mai 2009
Von Reader Rabbit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Alison Cole has everything. She has a good-looking boyfriend, she's been crowned the freshman class president and she has two great friends, or so she thinks.

Except, not really. She does have her problems, Alison and her stepmother have a mutual hate/hate relationship. And Alison still feels insecure about her less than gorgeous past.

Eventually, Alison's best friends get sick of being out shined and decide to trick her into going into an experimental face symmetry surgery. They convince her that her face isn't symmetrical enough and cause her to book an appointment for the surgery.

Of course, as it's an EXPERIMENTAL treatment, things don't go quite as planned...

An accident during the surgery causes Allison to randomly get the power to spout fire out of her fingers.

Her inability to control the power, at first, leads to her being deemed a pyro-freak and she's shunned by all of her former friends.

With her loss of popularity, Allison becomes friends with super geek David Eels and soon the two of them kick up a partnership...of the superhero variety and

HOTTIE is born!

But can Allison keep her secret identity a secret? Especially since she's falling for firefighter wannabe T.Hull...

Not to mention, what will Allison do when she finally meets her match? And who exactly is this supervillan?...

Okay, so I realize this book is meant to be a comedy. And while it does pull off that aspect, I found it lacking in other departments.

Yes, I realize that Hottie is not meant to be the deepest book in the world, but (in my opinion, anyways) I found it to be really, really shallow. Like, shallow to the point where I was bored for the majority of the book.

I couldn't relate to the characters at all. They were just too much. Too dorky, too popular, too crazy. I don't know. Even if that was the point, eventually it all got so tiresome.

I also felt like the book was a bit too long. It felt too stretched. I think everything could have been tied up in 50 less pages.

However, I don't want to make it seem like I completely hated the book. The writing style was, at some rare times, smooth and readable and of course, some of the crazy antics that the characters got into were laugh-worthy.

Despite being somewhat predictable, Hottie's premise is lingers on being remotely unique and it's possible that you MAY enjoy Hottie solely because of it's complete lack of realism and your desire to live in a fantasy world.

For what it's worth, Hottie pulled off what it was trying to do. For those with time to spare, it'll serve up it's purpose as a somewhat comedic read; however, don't be expecting something amazing. Or even remotely good.

Rating:
Originality: 6/10
Characters: 4/10
Readability: 4/10
Overall: 5/10 ~only read as a library loan, IMHO.

Happy Reading,
Reader Rabbit

4.0 von 5 Sternen Slow start, terrible cover, but worth it! 20. April 2009
Von Liviania - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first couple of chapters aren't that great. The first sweeps through the head of several characters of varying importance, as Alison receives news of her election. None of the characters come off as particularly sympathetic. Alison then gives in to her friends manipulation to get plastic surgery - at fourteen.

But when her bad decision goes wrong, HOTTIE gets moving. There's a wonderful sequence of destruction as Alison discovers her new flamability, at which point she realizes she needs the help of her high school's comic book geek, David. Their adventures together help Alison become less shallow and David more self-actualized. (Plus, their driver - an older teen who can be paid to chauffer people to parties - gets off some of the best lines.) Then she discovers her arch nemesis: Wettie. (So they don't know her powers . . . it makes sense.)

I really enjoyed how the love triangle was done. Both boys were nice, cared about Alison for Alison, although one had the advantage of knowing her secret identity. Love triangles work much better when there's reasonable belief either of the choices could win fair maiden. (I'm looking at you TWILIGHT.)

After the disastrous beginning chapters, HOTTIE becomes a funny and entertaining story. There's crime-fighting, friendship drama, family drama, and romantic drama. Pretty much any kind of drama you can think of, which is a nice counterpoint to the comedic elements. Jonathan Bernstein likes to make pop culture references, most of which blend in fine, except for an unfortunate one to Chris Brown. Of course, I read my copy shortly after the news broke so the reference will likely become less jarring as time goes on.

I'm partial to superhero stories, but even taking that bias into account I enjoyed HOTTIE and stayed up late to finish it. The ending is a little far-fetched, but I like how it calls back to an earlier important conversation in the novel enough to accept it.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Different... 12. Juni 2014
Von Hope LaGrois (from Hope's Bookshelf) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Plot:

This book had a very original plot. I haven't heard about the idea of a girl becoming a superhero too much in the young adult genre. However, I thought the story dragged on a little longer than it had to. To me, it started out a little slow, and it took me a really long time to get into the story.

Characters:

While the characters were written and described nicely, the main character, Alison (aka Hottie) really got on my nerves. After a while, I got sick of her "oh gosh, my friends hate my, my step-mom hates me, I hate my life" routine. It got old after a little while, and I get even more annoyed with her once she got new friends, but still continued this routine. She kind of redeemed herself in the end, yet I couldn't get over how much I got annoyed with her during course of the book.

Wow Factor:

I was pretty wowed with this book. While it took me a while to get into the story and I was annoyed with Alison/Hottie most of the time, it was still a good story, and when I got past those two major things, it was a wonderful story.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Super-Girly Superhero Comedy 23. Dezember 2011
Von E. Kristin Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Alison Cole is the coolest girl at her Beverly Hills school. She is beautiful, popular, and even nice. After a successful run for president (sponsored by a reality show crew filming every moment), she has a lot of plans for making her high school even more awesome. But her bffs have other things in mind - they are jealous of everything Alison has and convince her to undergo unnecessary plastic surgery. During the procedure, lightning strikes the building and when she wakes up, Alison can shoot flames from her hands. It's not long before she realizes her friends have been sabotaging her, so she turns to David, the school's supergeek, for help. Together they turn her into Hottie, a smokin' superhero. But Alison still can't get past her relationship with her stepmother and David is starting to have feelings for his protege. It will take a supervillain's superscam to straighten out Alison's life, and her new alterego is just the thing she needs to boost her self-esteem. At first glance, this is the corniest book on the market. But Bernstein works all the Beverly Hills cliches to his advantage to build a super-girly superhero comedy, a la Clueless meets Spiderman. Maybe Hottie isn't for everyone, but it's not a book you can judge by its cover.
