really liked it

Originally posted at so many books, so little time
This is a story of how harsh school life is- everyone at war with the other for friendships, in pursuit of that achievement the glory of which might not last, and being mean over a boy. Friends become strangers, and bullies become allies. The point here is- at high school, weird things happen.
Life has just taken a turn for the unexpected- the should-never-happen unexpected for Bea Hoggs.
The plot goes like this: we have a bunch of people crazy for dance. The passionate crazy. Bea is not our model. She won't fit into skinny jeans, and dancing will take a lot of hard word, because she isn't a natural. So her friends and estranged friends ditch her, form groups and start preparing for the competition. By some really interesting quirks of fate, she is now supposed to pair up with the college hottie, and dance with him.

You should read this book. I say this for two very important reasons.
a) You are so tired from the day that you need to read, and you are so tired that you just cannot dig into some serious fiction with deep philosophical strands, or imagine that impossible sci-fi world. You need this book to make you smile. And, smile you will!
Because, throughout the book, I was smiling: the plot is predictable, right, but the author carries the narration so effervescently that one cannot help but love the vivaciousness of the plot.
b) High school is hard as it is. And then life intervenes. Everything becomes crooked, plans are thwarted, all balance is twisted upside down! You deal with it all, and as it turns out, the destination is worth all the pains. This book is the most humourous and light-hearted example of dealing with the serious issues.

So, yes, i'd recommend you read this book when you are looking for a couple hours of entertainment, similar to that teen movie!
