A spoiled rebellious London girl takes on the stuffy English countryside in Clubbing The crime getting caught with a fake ID at a posh London nightclub The punishment spending the summer at her Grandparen I picked this up on a whim at the library maybe I missed having a thing for goth chicks when I was a teenager Anyway Clubbing was one of DC Comics' ill fated Minx imprint a line of alternative graphic novels targeted at girls which got cancelled after a couple of years because their marketing sucked and the market for graphic novels in general particularly girl friendly ones just wasn't that goodThe clubbing is a pun as Charlotte Lottie Brook is a spoiled privileged London teenager used to going out clubbing with fake IDs until she's caught and gets sent to stay the summer with her grandparents at their golf country club in the country where she tries to go hiking through cow pastures in 300 platform bootsLottie was amusing of course she comes in with the cliched snotty big city rich girl all prepared to look down at the bucolic yokels attitude but underneath her affectations and her privilege she's not a bad girl and she actually likes her grandparents even while displaying the expected teen dismay at OMG having to hang out with grandparents She's smart but not very wise makes dumb and believable mistakes for a teenager she's kind of cute and as it turns out she has a wicked golf swingSo I would have liked this book a lot if the sinister schemes Lottie imagined had stayed a product of her imagination and all the classic British literature she's read she's a fan of the Brontes and Thomas Harding It would have been funny if she was a modern day Catherine Morland from Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey which is where I thought the author was going with the story Unfortunately nope the story goes full Lovecraft at the end which I thought was just dumbI don't how how much this book would appeal to the supposed target demographic teenage girls I guess they are supposed to identify with shopaholic Lottie and her overactive imagination and ten inch waist but it seemed like kind of an arbitrary way to lure girls into reading about shopping and boys and OMG it sucks being a teenager and then suddenly ELDRITCH HORRORS FROM BEYOND THE STARSAnd the execution of that twist was just meh considering who the real villain turns out to be it broke my suspension of disbelief and my sympathy for all the characters Still mildly entertaining

ClubbingT's stuffy country club But Charlotte Lottie Brook best known for her mile high platforms a bottomless itunes account and an unbridled passion for classic lit will end up doing than just serving time in c I picked this up second hand and am glad I did It was fun I enjoyed how bratty the heroine is and felt the book was a loving send up of a certain precocious overprivileged set that I'm oddly pleased to see cast as protagonist instead of 2 dimensional antagonist I'm not sure how to write that in a way that makes sense But basically I liked Lottie's flash goth hyper femininity and how that's part of her personality and that's okay I liked seeing her baking for the Women's Institute I liked seeing her interact with her gran and look forward to befriending another woman based on the fact that she knows how to apply eyeliner These were all positives for meAlso this book contains some Coleridge A Where it lost my interest was the sped up super supernatural resolution and how pat and emotionless it was The bits I loved most in this book were when Lottie was really thinking or feeling when something was clearly penetrating her supercilious behaviour and forcing her to acknowledge something real When she received those bangles as a gift or found herself warming up to Howard or various other small real life moments Those were greatBasically I think this could have been a great slice of life comic or a great supernatural mystery thing but the mixing of the two while something I usually applaud did not work out too well for it But I still genuinely liked it and will probably re read it and recommend it sometime
