Very good

I don't normally read middle grade books - I find them, as a rule, a tad too simplistic, however, Nice and Mean can definitely be considered the exception to this rule.

The author took a basic premise and turned it into an interesting and intriguing novel - joining two students together in order to make a video. Through alternating chapters, we are privy to the differences in both voices - from the so called "good girl" to the so called "bad girl".

I liked that the book clearly shows us the background of both of these girls - helping us better understand why both are the way they are today - the message is clear - don't judge a book (or someone else) by its cover.

I also liked the cultural references to India (a personal interest of mine) and the fact that while these two girls appear to be so opposite on the surface - they may or may not be all that different after all - deep down inside.

I read this book in one sitting - it was fun, deep in some spots and funny in others - a perfect blend - just like our two main characters.
