Title- You Should See Me In A Crown

Author- Leah Johnson


Liz Lighty has always believed she’s too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed midwestern town. But it’s okay — Liz has a plan that will get her out of Campbell, Indiana, forever: attend the uber-elite Pennington College, play in their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor.

But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz’s plans come crashing down . . . until she’s reminded of her school’s scholarship for prom king and queen. There’s nothing Liz wants to do less than endure a gauntlet of social media trolls, catty competitors, and humiliating public events, but despite her devastating fear of the spotlight she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get to Pennington.

The only thing that makes it halfway bearable is the new girl in school, Mack. She’s smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider as Liz. But Mack is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the competition keep Liz from her dreams . . . or make them come true?


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I feel so happy and giddy right now!

Oof, the plot was so unique and cute! I really loved how Liz moved through various social groups, rocking her way in each of them! I liked how the book started on a kind of a sad note, but ended with the feeling of I-rule-this-world and happy mood! The book was a big rollercoaster of emotions, lah!

Then the characters, I loved them. I loved how insecure Liz was, even till the end, but how she controlled it in her benefit and displayed the aura of a girl who is brave, I don’t think I’m making much sense her but all I wanna say is that I really liked Liz’s personality! And I loved Amanda, and Jordan, and ah well, I loved everyone.

The writing style, as I said, was like a rollercoaster, I loved that. And I really like how the book fought against Homophobia, and a bit on Racism, I really, really loved that aspect. The only thing that felt a bit of a turn off was that it felt a but unrealistic to me.

Ahh, if you are a fan of a good young adult, this one is the book for you!

Have you read the book? Did you like it? What were your thoughts? Let me know!

  1. Brilliant post!! I read you should see me in a crown recently and totally agree that it left me with a grin! I think it would make an amazing movie – I can honestly see it already, some of the scenes were so vivid. Mack and liz’s relationship was great but like you said I like how there was a lot of character development too. Here’s my review!
