I think the lesson in the story is to not worry so much about what other people think, because that is what causes the problem in the book. You have to care most about your own opinion of yourself, not another person's opinion.
This book reminds me of a long time ago, because they use words from the 70's. She also uses crazy words and I like that. For example in chapter 11 she said "Thefopeeisfrayoasebabaswlltenklavy." What does that mean? It is fun to read crazy words.
Mary Anne reminds me of my sister. She acts like my sister, because Jasmine, my sister, always wants to look good like Mary Anne. That is the most important thing to her.
Ann Martin is a good author, because she puts lots of details in her descriptions and she also uses simlies. That is good, because I could picture exactly what she was talking about.
I recommend this book to kids who like school, because it is mostly in school. I also recommend this book to people who like makeovers, because Mary Anne gets a makeover.
