Former perfect girl Parker Fadley has fallen. She might not graduate. She's drinking in school. She no longer has any friends. She's on suicide watch. What could cause a girl to change so drastically? While the answer seems fairly evident from the beginning, and the story is not overly original, I still felt compelled to read to the end. Parker's bitchy attitude is amusing and the prep school/frienemies plot will appeal to chick lit readers who are looking for their clique/gossip girl stories with a bit of grit.

This is the perfect book to hand to girls who have devoured the Pretty Little Liars series, and are looking for something similar to read as they anxiously await the debut of the Pretty Little Liars TV series.
