Although I didn’t want it to end, I couldn’t help but read this in one go because Elektra’s world is such fun to be in. The ups and downs of her life, the emails, the texts, the snippets of celeb gossip, the on-set shenanigans, genius one-liners, and spot-on skewering of Twitter branding – all add to the joy of the book. Plus there’s a fantastic cast of characters to care about (special mention for fabulous step-grandmother Eulalie who deserves her own spin-off).
A warm and VERY funny series that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Tremendous fun with Elektra and Moss, Archie and Carlo and the magic new puppy - although Digby is never to be forgotten.
Elektra's career staggers/bounds on with the assistance or otherwise of doubtful parents, exotic grandmother, concerned school and even more concerned agents and PRs.
Long Live Electra and this series. Hollywood coming.
‘It’s A Wrap’ takes Elektra to a whole new brutal level of cringe worthy action, capturing superbly the pressure on teens growing up in a social media dominated world. Although Elektra is very much in the spotlight with the up and coming media release this story cleverly highlights once again the struggle of any awkward teen who doesn’t quite fit in with the shiny, glossy and ultimately fake world presented in social media. The #ElektraWozHere moment will literally make you want to hide behind the sofa or lock yourself away in your room as you feel her humiliation shine out of the pages. There are so many moments of pure comedy genius that will have you crying with laughter. Perdita and Honor’s strength is that they are genuinely funny writers who provide a witty social commentary that is brilliantly entertaining and leaves you desperate for more. I’m so sad to see this series come to an end but they have ended it in a very fitting and honest way that feels just right for Elektra and I just adored it. So with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face, all that’s left for me to say is, It’s A Wrap!
A huge fan of the Waiting for Callback series, I was delighted to settle down to read the final instalment. It’s been over a year since the second book, Take Two, was released and I was keen to again spend time with Elektra James and her family. As with the previous books, Elektra’s authentic teen voice is instantly appealing although I did miss my favourite character – Elektra’s long-suffering, slightly neurotic, mum – who has a much smaller role in this book. Fortunately, this gap is more than made up by an entertaining sub-plot with Elektra’s arrogant co-star, Carlo.
It’s a Wrap is packed with the cringe-worthy and laugh out loud moments that we’ve come to expect from this fabulous teen series. Indeed, this book exceeded my expectations on this front: it has one of the funniest scenes I have perhaps ever read in a book. Elektra is filming a banquet scene in a costume drama and things go slightly and unexpectedly wrong when part of her ‘costume’ escapes, splattering gravy then cranberry sauce in every direction. I had tears streaming down my face and my shoulders were shaking uncontrollably as I read the scene. (Which is really not ideal when you’re travelling on packed public transport. I will leave you to imagine the strange looks from those around me. However, it did give me the opportunity to hold up the cover to show what I was reading so, hopefully, a few might be inspired to find out for themselves what was quite so funny.)
While the story remains essentially a light-hearted holiday read for teen girls, this third and final book in the series also has a hidden message about the potentially damaging impact of social media on modern life. Elektra’s attempts to live up to her publicist’s expectations clearly highlights the divorce between reality and a social media image. (Although, in keeping with the uplifting tone, Elektra does ultimately take back control and I just loved her response when social media turns nasty, creating her own hashtag #ElektraWosActuallyHere).
