He's So Not Worth It, continues right off from the first book, so basically the whole drama continues but it's more...intense.
While the first book had a lot of mean-girl action and a couple of the girls were downright b!tches, there wasn't so much of that in this book.
In fact, there was only one b!tch, and sadly that was Ally.

Ally has finally, whacked out. The pressure has finally exploded and the poor girl has all these things happening to her at the same time, so who could really blame her? H

Oooooh the drama :0

This could have all been avoided if everyone wasn't so damn self-centered and just freakin talked to each other without storming out of the room every two seconds.
I read the first book in this series She's So Dead To Us last year and it was an addictive guilty pleasure (I did feel sheepish reading it but gosh it was surprisingly good. I gave it three stars of good times). It was not my usual kind of contemp read but it was easy to get sucked into the angst (!) and drama (!). Scott knows how to use a hook, when to pull a twist and how to keep her plotting tight and edgy ~ she's got quite a sizable bibliography and it shows she knows what she's doing.

So, it

I really loved She's Dead To Us, the first installment to this trilogy and since the first book is a sureball cliffhanger, i'm really looking forward on this second installment.

The story picks up right where the first book left off. After being humiliated on Chloe's party, Ally was devastated and to atleast forget what happened her mom and her new boyfriend decided to head to Jersey Shore for the Summer but then Ally decides to stay at home and stay with her dad BUT then she finds out that Jake
Kieran Scott has a way of writing that makes you never want to put the book down. I usually read chapter to chapter and won't put the book down in the middle of a chapter. Each chapter in this book ends in a small cliffhanger that makes you not want to stop reading, it was because of this that I finished this book in a short time. One of my favorite thing about He's So Not Worth It and She's So Dead To Us is that it is written from both the point of views of Jake and Ally simultaneously. I reall ...more

I chose this book because I liked the cover art. I sort of judged this book by the cover, but I'm glad I did. This is the second book of the He's So/She's So trilogy. The plot was a little confusing for me because I didn't read the first book but I caught on fast. The entire story was written in two different character's perspectives: Ally's and Jake's. It alternates between each chapter. Ally will tell her part of the story and Jake will tell his. It really was an interesting format. The story ...more

She's So Dead to Us was one of my favorite reads last year. It was a different kind of contemporary novel, almost like a guilty pleasure because of how I was able to take a peek into rich kids' lives. But more than that, I was able to sympathize with the characters, and the author made the villains three dimensional that I was curious to know their motivations. They weren't just plain mean girls and boys -- they were doing that because of something, even if it w

I need to read it now. Like seriously. I want to know more!
I have to check at least three times, just to make sure I am reading the right book. I want to take down my review of She’s So Dead to Us because this book had me disappointed. Well, not really that huge disappointment but it turned one hundred eighty on me. My opinion on characters and story mind bogglingly changed. And the one persistent question kept me on—what happened?

With all the drama happened in the first book, Ally and Jake need some time alone. Separately. Ally spent her summer in Jer

She's so dead to us and he's so not worth it are two books from a trilogy. When i got the first book of the trilogy “She’s So Dead to Us” i found the synopsis intriguing. An ex-rich popular girl ends up leaving her hometown “Orchin Hall” poor and fatherless because her runaway father lost all his family’s money along with millions of dollars from the other rich families that live in their Crestie neighborhood (sort of like the zip code 90210 of beverly hills). However the story starts 18 months ...more

Siiiiiiiiigh. The minute Cooper arrived at the scene I knew the rest of the plot would be a series of flimsy new plot-device characters that are just there to make the main couple jealous of each other's respective summer flings. Unfortunately, this reads more like a big checklist of relationship roadblocks than its predecessor, which I really, really, loved.

So maybe if our two narrators, previously-awesome-mc Ally and jerk-with-a-heart-of-gold Jake, actually got together, there would be no rea
Warning: Contains spoilers for She’s So Dead To Us.

He’s So Not Worth It by Kieran Scott is the second in the He’s So/She’s So trilogy. It picks up exactly where She’s So Dead To Us leaves us. In case you missed it: Ally’s dad invests all of her friends’ parents money and loses it. She leaves the Crest. Then moves back, friendless. Ally’s former friends plot against her. Hot boy Jake moves into her old house and old room. Things heat up between Ally and Jake. But the flame is extinguished when Ja
He’s So Not Worth It is a great book but one that I had a lot of trouble with. She’s So Dead To Us was one of my favorite books of 2010 and I have to say that this one did not match up with the first. I did still enjoy it and I am, of course, dying for the next book but I did not love it like I thought I would.

I don’t want to give anything away about what happened in the first book so this review is a little hard to write. He’s So Not Worth It picked up right where She’s So Dead To Us left off s

I got this book, wanting an easy, fun, silly read, and it delivered beautifully. It was even written pretty well! Plus, it's about rich (mostly) white kids growing up in NJ suburbs--my teenage years, haha! Basic story: Ally Ryan's dad has been missing for two years, since he lost a bunch of people's money through poor investments. But when her so-called-friend cruelly reveals that he's been working in a deli through a video shown at an end-of-the-year party, Ally is devastated, especially when s ...more
This book was absolutely AMAZING!!! Anyone who thinks any less of it is insane! Even though it took a while for this book to come out after She's So Dead to Us, it was TOTALLY worth the wait. The characters were as crazy, lovable, and annoying as ever (in a good way) that I found myself talking about them as if they were actually real people. The plot was incredible and ended with an INSANE cliffhanger that made my eyes literally bulge out of their sockets. Kieran Scott is one of my absolute fav ...more

Jake Graydon, an exciting opportunity is waiting for you in the service industry! Are your grades so low your parents have grounded you for the summer? Did you the girl you really like unceremoniously leave you behind? Would you rather eat dirt than see your friends again? Then a job at the local coffee shop is just the ticket! Surprisingly, Ally's father is the new manager so you get to be reminded of her nearly every day. Maybe it's time to start flirting with your best friend's ex or even tak ...more

I'm speechless.

I am seriously considering hunting down Kieran Scott right now.

What I love about the She's So Dead To Us trilogy it's that everything is not what it seems. He's So Not Worth It seems like the typical rich people book, but its not. Yes, they are times in which I felt everything they were going through was cliché & not particularly new. But Kieran Scott takes that and weaves into a natural story that leaves you wanting for more.

Okay, so the stories continues were it left off, A

Oh My God…. Did that really just happen?

From beginning to start I just couldn’t stop reading this book, I just finished the first one (“She’s so dead to us”) and loved it, and now I finished the second one. I didn’t think this book could top the first one but I was so wrong, so very wrong.

“He’s so not worth it” started off right after the first drama filled book, there’s never a dull moment in Ally’s life that’s for sure.

Ally has just gotten over the fact that her dad after ru

First thoughts: I can't believe it ended like that!! I waited so long to get my hands on this book and I can't believe how long I will have to wait for the next book. Kieran Scott writes very good teen drama. I love this series. Ally just seems to get more and more thrown at her without much hope for a break. Or when she does get a break something hits her in the face. Case in point: The ending. Yikes.

I love Ally. Like I said, she's dealing with a lot in this book. From the ending of the first b
*3.5 stars*

Given that She’s So Dead To Us ends on a cliffhanger, the deadly kind, I began He’s So Not Worth it right away. I’d read reviews of how this one wasn’t quite as fun as the last one, with the author stretching out the drama too much…but actually, I liked itNow, the thing is, Ally’s understandably angry. Her boyfriend kind of held back the enormous piece of news on her Dad, which led to lots of humiliation for her, and thus left her angry enough to break off whatever they had. I agree w

High School Drama

Sequel to She's So Dead to Us, it picks up where the previous one ended. Ally's dad's back, she feels betrayed by Jake and decides to take off to Jersey Shore to get away from it all. But drama seems to always follow Ally Ryan.

I expected more from this book. While it's prequel was fun and entertaining, this one lacked its creativity. He's So Dead To Us fell short for me. I felt like Kieran Scott made a TV show out of her book rather than a series of novels. All my favorite c

I confess, I did not read the first book, She's So Dead To Us. In fact I wasn't even aware that I was jumping into a sequel until I started reading. It was fairly obvious while reading this book that I was missing some serious backstory, so to everyone else make sure you read the first one in the series before tackling this one; it will make everything MUCH clearer I'm sure!
Throughout this book we encounter three characters' points of view. Mostly it's either Ally or Jake, but we also get some i

HE’S SO NOT WORTH IT picks up right where SHE’S SO DEAD TO US left off. Ally is completely devastated after being humiliated at Chloe’s party.

Thankfully I had He's So Not Worth It ready and waiting to be read straight after finishing She's So Dead To Us. Ally is a completely different character in this book. The situation with her mother's annoying "don't sit on the white couch and take your shoes off at the door please" new boyfriend, her longing for her parents to get back together again coupled with her need to avoid Jake results in a teenage rebellion of epic proportions.

My Thoughts: After that killer ending of She's So Dead To Us, I was so excited for He's So Not Worth i! It was another fantastic novel! We are back with Ally Ryan and Jake Graydon. We go back and forth between both perspectives and learn what each character thinks and is going through.

Summer vacation has started and that means a rocky start for everyone. Some of the crew are leaving town while others have to stay in town. Jake ends up staying in town, getting a job, and taking a class. He ends

“I missed you so much," she breathed.
I tilted my head back and put my hands on her shoulders. I could hardly believe this was happening. I was finally getting to touch her. To kiss her. It was all happening. "I missed you, too.”
“There's something I have to say," I said seriously, looking her in the eye.
She smiled. "Oookay." She was mocking me-mocking my tone-but I didn't care.
"Okay. Here it is. I love you," I said. "And I never, ever wanted to hurt you. It's like, the number one thing I never want to do, but somehow, I keep doing it. And I'm sorry, I just...that's all I wanted to say all this time. All I was trying to do...with that thing with your dad, not telling you...was not to hurt you. And I'm sorry that I did.
Alley stared at me.
"And I'm sorry that I did it again. With the Chloe thing. Which was stupid. Like, really, really, stupid. And I-"
"Can you just stop, for a second?" Ally said, holding up a hand.
"What?" I said.
"Can you say the first part again?" she asked, rolling her fingers around for a rewind.
I racked my brain.
"Um...I love you?" I said.
"That's the part, Cuz I love you, too.”
