Annie, are you OK?
So, Annie are you OK?
Are you OK, Annie?
You've been hit by, you've been struck by a smooth criminal!

If you scratch through the cover of this book, 'Wrong Kind of Girl', you find that the actual title is 'Jessica Wakefield is Jesus Christ.'

Let's break this shit down:
Annie wants to be a cheerleader more than anything in the world.
There are rumors that Annie is an easy girl - just because she has boyfriends, mind you, not because she's actually had sex.
Annie isn't aware of these r

Recommended to Andrea by: OMG. Like all the girls in my 5th grade class. DUH!
Simply camp-tastic! Damn those scheming, blonde cheerleaders and their no good ways! I hope you wreck that Fiat Spider of yours, Jessica Wakefield!

I read this in the 5th grade (about 100 years ago), and learned that it is in fact possible to be both easy and brunette and still be a cheerleader. Ah, values.

I definitely have never read this one before. It was pretty good, but nothing great. I feel like the only reason why Jessica has it out for Annie is because Annie is so similar to Jessica. Subconciously, Jessica probably feels threatened by Annie. Story of my life right now haha

Apparently Annie had no idea what people were saying behind her back, which I find hard to believe. There's gotta be jerks who call her "Easy Annie" to her face. I mean, there would be in a normal high school.

Okay, setting aside the problems with calling a character "Easy Annie," can we get some clarity on what "easy" actually means? Because the extent of Annie's scandalous behavior seems to be going on lots of dates with guys and making out with them at Miller's Point. Are we supposed to be inferring that she's having sex with all of them? Except it's never suggested that she does, at least not based on Elizabeth's private interactions with her.

So if "easy" means going on lots of dates with guys and

Annie Whitman has finally achieved her goals of getting off academic probation. All her work has finally paid off. Now she can finally try out to be a cheerleader. Which is something she wants to do more than anything. But can she do it with all of the rumors surrounding her? Can she prove she's a fully talented cheerleader or will she be shunned just because people believe things about her that aren't true?

I haven't come across a sweeter character in this series than Annie. I mean there are ver

Probably one of the worst (best!) SVH books, this one is about how Jessica torments thr beautiful sophomore Annie Whitman by slut shaming her and blackballing her from the cheerleading squad. Reading it as an adult made me realize how very out of touch with actual teenagers Pascal's ghostwriters actually were in the 1980s, as I'm pretty certain Annie's character is vilified for just dating, not even sleeping with lots of dudes. Beyond that, its very much a mean girl storyline gone bad. Also, the ...more
