The thing that gets me about The Nearly New Millenium Diary Of Cleo Howard is how accurately it summed up the internal suffering I felt in high school. I think it's the sort of thing that maybe you can only understand if you went to high school in Europe - but there is something very nostalgic about her writing. While some of the nostalgia I am simply too young and not British enough to get the passion for the time is still there. It's shows us a world that Tipper is obviously much more comfortable in, but as I dig deeper I find that I too am more comfortable in Sarah Tipper's world of high school drama and heavy metal fun.
So yeah - there are parts of The Nearly New Millenium Diary Of Cleo Howard that I find frustrating, the lack of dialogue for example can be a bit annoying. That's an issue Tipper learns to overcome though, and Cleo's distinct sense of humor leaves you charmed. Watching Cleo grow through Tippers writing is a pleasure and shows me that this series still has a lot of fuel left in it. I'm just curious as to how things are going to evolve from here on out, especially as Sarah Tipper becomes a stronger and more emotionally driving author.
