Day #13...
Challenge #13: One Underappreciated Book EVERYONE Should Read Is:
An amazing book that, in my opinion, is underappreciated is

Diamonds are a Teen's Best Friend 
(Living Blonde #1) by Allison Rushby

Nessa Joanne Mulholland, aka Marilyn Monroe's No. 1 teenage fan, is used to moving house. This time, however, she's relocating in movie-star style - crossing the Atlantic on board the Majestic, headed for Paris from New York City.

 And it really would be in movie-star style if it wasn't for the fact that she's bringing her cringe-fest professor dad along for the ride. (Dad's specialisation: human mating rituals - need Nessa say more?) Oh yeah, and sharing a cabin that's five decks below sea level and next to the engine room. 

Still, at least Holly Isles is on board. Yes, really, that Holly Isles - star of stage, screen and – DVD. Suddenly, things are looking up. Looking a little Marilyn, in fact, because events are strangely mirroring Nessa's favourite movie of all time, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

As Holly Isles, world-famous actress, confides in Nessa over mocktails.

As Nessa coaches Holly in the amazing 'Nessa's Lessons in Love' - the ultimate man-catching rules to finding true and lasting lurv.

Nessa fall for Holly's too-cute nephew, Marc.

And – cover your eyes!
As it all goes terribly, horribly, embarrassingly wrong.

There's no doubting it. This is going to be one pitchy crossing.

I love this book, it's the cutest, funniest read and it always leaves me in a better mood but not that many people seem to have really read it. It revolves around a main character who is obsessed with Marilyn Monroe and all of her movies. This is literally the easiest read, you can knock it over in a couple of hours.
There is romance, scheming and utter madness but all of it is fun, hilarious, sometimes romantic, as well as heartfelt, and I feel as if only more people would read it, they would enjoy it just as much, it is a light and immensely enjoyable novel!

Here is a little taste:
'His aunt? Holly is his aunt? Well, la de da. I go to give him my best 'Get your filthy mitts off me, don't mess with the outfit and don't go anywhere near the hair, buster' look when my mouth drops even further. Hello, sailor! Cute boy ahoy! He's not kidding around. This guy is definitely related to Holly in a big way.
