Synopsis: Popularity is the best revenge.In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend.But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren--starting with her boyfriend.Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.
I loved this book. It was just perfect. I can really relate to being back stabbed by someone close to me, and then they use it to their advantage. I just wish I had the guts to do what this book did. Really. It captured the thought of revenge that all teenagers dream about. But it also did one extra. It showed us how it easy it is to be the better person. This was a great story. It teaches a great lesson-maybe revenge isnt all its cracked up to be- and that being the better person will be the best thing to do in the end. It also shows that no matter how much you hate someone you cant help but pity them just a little bit. And that you used to still have the same relationship with them. Great book.
