Summary: Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.
After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she’s carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.
Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.
Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.
Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.
But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now
My Review: 4 stars
I picked this one up because I was a super bitchy, angst filled teenager and I loved Mean Girls back in the day. It was much easier for me to relate to the bitchy characters than the head cheerleader type.
It was pretty good. Alexis was moderately bitchy, but throughout the story her ice queen exterior definitely started to melt. Brett is a little too perfect for my tastes. I am a person who appreciates flaws in romantic interests. The romance had some hot, yet YA appropriate moments, yet I still don’t find myself falling over Brett. He’s way too vanilla, but if that’s your thing, then who am I to judge?
There was a decent plot to this book though, which I didn’t entirely expect. When reading about teen heart throbs sometimes you lose that. It felt more like Gossip Girl than Veronica Mars, but I’m not going to lie, I’ve seen every episode of both TV series. But the novel ended rather abruptly. Not exactly a cliffhanger, but definitely left the story feeling unfinished.
It was a fast paced fluff read that I finished in a matter of hours. I am pleased to say that it wasn’t as cliche as I thought it would be. The characters aren’t all your cookie cutter stereotypes. I am interested to see where the story goes if I come across a copy of the sequel, but I don’t see myself seeking it out. Recommended if you need a quick fluff read to clean your pallet after something deeper.
