What’s the best revenge when your best friend ditches you for the popular crowd? Alyson Noël reveals all in her hot new young adult novel.
As freshmen at Ocean High last year, Winter and her best friend Sloane thought they could ditch their nerdy past, launching from invisible to cool. But after another miserable year of standing on the sidelines they make a pact to do whatever it takes not to go unnoticed in their sophomore year, promising each other that whoever makes it into the cool group first will bring the other along.
One Sloane gets a taste of life on the A-list, she slams that door in Winter’s face. Suddenly cast out of her former best friend’s life, Winter takes revenge the modern way: by announcing all of Sloane’s dirty little secrets on an anonymous blog. Then the blog becomes more popular than she ever dreamed and Winter must decide if her retaliation is really worth the consequences—and if the price for popularity is one she’s willing to pay. Once again, Alyson Noël navigates the tricky waters of the high school social scene with the heart and humor her readers have come to love.
Alyson Noël is the author of four young adult novels. She lives in Laguna Beach, California, where she is working on her next book.
Praise for Art Geeks and Prom Queens:"Get ready for a wild ride with Rio Jones. And, hang on tight because you're going to love every minute of it!"
-J. Minter, author of The Insiders Praise for Faking 19:"Noël's debut novel is realistic and convincing. Alex and M. are fresh and endearing, and anything but superficial. Readers will relate to both characters and their lives."
