My 10 year old self loved this book. The main character gets to attend SAB, or some fictional school that is supposed to be modeled after SAB. I remember the descriptions of the main character waiting around for classes to start, her embarrassment when she realizes that having old, broken in shoes and leg warmers is more of a status symbol than the brand new gear she bought in her excitement for the new year of classes beginning.
From the Goodreads description, it sounds like there was some roman

This was a really weird book and it wasn't that good. It was really boring and stupid. That's all I have to say about this lame book. :)
