Sayde and Demi, two technicolor theater fanatics living in the drab grey world of Benton Ohio, and best friends, get accepted to Wildewood Summer Institute. Wildewood is a prestigious theater camp for high school students. Sayde and Demi believe that Wildewood will forever change their lives and cement their future stardom. Wildewood does change their lives, but not in the ways they were expecting.
Though this is my least favorite E. Lockhart book thus far, that doesn't mean much because I loved her other books so much. I like that her books don't wrap up neatly in the end and generally don't have the good ending you'd expect from most teen novels. In fact, many of the endings seem like what you would imagine the bad ending being, except that her characters grow and learn to redefine themselves so the fact that they didn't get what they wanted doesn't matter, because they realize that they don't really want it anyway.
