Description
"Albert Camus meets Mariah Fredericks in this smart, edgy take on one adolescent's search for identity and meaning in life." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
On the outside, Libby Brin is the most popular girl in school. But on the inside, Libby is dying -- of boredom. In a moment of desperation, Libby signs up for an internship at the Los Angeles Zoo, much to the dismay of her friends, who'd prefer she spend her time with them, shopping, partying, and making fun of everyone else. Oddly, Libby realizes that she actually enjoys her new job and that she may even like the two "nerds" she works with. Will the Queen of Cool be forced to give up her crown?
