Read in October, 2009

I'm surprised by how much I ended up liking this book. At first, when I began to read it it reminded me of Meg Cabot's own book How To Be Popular. I thought it was okay, so my hopes for this book were not all that high.Yet as the story continued I found myself very much involved in the book and falling into Kate's(aka Kat) world. We know high school to be hard but to place each girl in a marketing system and tamper with their emotions is really one of the best ways to show how high school can be very difficult for a teenage girl, even one who is a senior and only has a few weeks until graduation. At the end,I was pretty much happy with how it ended. Although it was a bit like a Disney ending(not exactly but almost there) it also gave Katie back some power. I thought this book was excellent and those who read it should just remember that people like this are in high school, just because you are not one of them doesn't mean they don't exist, they are there in different shapes, forms, looks, personalities, etc. I rented this book from my library but I would like a copy of my own to read over again.
