"When her roommate emerged from the bedroom with her boyfriend, both blushing and smiling, Cecilia put her arm around me and introduced me as “the coolest pre-frosh.” I real-ized with a shock of surprise that she liked me." Color me surprised, too.

“Best Senior Essay... Opal Mehta.” I won't say it. No. I WON'T! . . . bet she plagiarized it. Phew! I feel better now.

Still, really hard to feel any empathy for a character who describes other girls this way: "She was wearing a bright coral Juicy tube top that was so tight it looked painted on. I won-dered how she could breathe, and realized it must be a difficult procedure when I saw her breasts heaving against the straining fabric."

Man, watching this character break down into hysterics isn't even fun. In light of what's known about the author, it's really just depressing.

God, even the parts of this book that aren't plagiarized feel completely derivative.

Seriously, you guys know I'm not squeamish about teen drinking. But this is ridic: “This is so good,” I yelled to Stacie, with all the ob-viousness of someone who’d barely touched a drop of alcohol before this moment. Fortunately, she was too far gone to notice. “I know,” she screamed back. “Have another,” she said, this time handing me the whole bottle and taking a Smirnoff Raspberry for herself.

WTF? This is YA; what's this booze product placement doing here? "I went for the latter because of the friendly, green-swirled bottle . . . It tasted just like very fizzy, tangy lemonade. I then took a bigger sip and found that the faster I gulped it down, the more the tiny bub-bles shot to my head and exploded in a citrus cloudburst."

Attention derivative writers of YA: eye color does NOT change with emotion. I know some boy in your freshman orientation class said that his do. LIES. "Then I looked at him again and noticed the way flecks of gold appeared in his eyes when he smiled."

Love interest #2 is clearly a Paul Parlipiano gay nerd stereotype.

Aaand . . . here we go. Scene almost identical to the "bracelet scene" in Mean Girls. I bet she lifted as much from popular movies as she did from popular books.
