So superficial and funny, it's like the best reality show- you root for Tiffany to fall flat on her face, wonder how the heck she ever got where she is, and pity her poor parents and teachers.

Don’t waste your time on this YA book. Unless you’re a teen girl who’s looking for a parody of the pretty, popular girls who may torment her in high/middle school, you won’t find anything in its pages worthwhile. I rarely finish a book that starts this badly, but I thought that surely it must have a turnaround in the middle, or else why would it have gotten published? Yeah, still no answer to that one.

What an awful book! Told by a head cheerleader who is going out with the best looking guy in school, the story draws on the worst of stereotypes, has no real plot that is not so predictable that it is sickening, and is just plain a cheap excuse for trying to exploit the teen market. It’s supposed to be funny, but is merely shallow. I wouldn’t recommend this one to anyone, no matter howdesperate.
I loved this book. I thought Tiffany and Campbell were going to be the perfect couple too bad hes gay. I flipped when I read that part. And the Funny thing is that they kissed (On the lips) after he told her that. And he was serious about that.
