April Bowers accidentally finds herself a member of the popular group after telling a small lie. Well, a sort of small lie. She and Regina George Britney Taylor are partnered in gym class and when Britney doesn't know who she is, she says that she just moved there. Which is sort of true, if by "just moved," you mean "moved a year ago."

So anyway, now April's popular and soon, she's invited to take the Lipstick Oath and agree to abide by all their rules. And she does. But soon, she finds herself shunned (turns out you can't get away with a lie forever) and now she wants revenge.

This is a cute book, although April annoyed me several times. While she's getting very indignant about how Britney and her friends treat people, she's completely oblivious to the fact that she's doing the EXACT SAME THING to other people. And she's a complete snob, even though she doesn't think so.

But I think a lot of these things are easier to see when you're not a teenager in high school. :) So if you want to read a book that's basically Mean Girls meets Pretty in Pink (but a G-rated version), spend a few hours with April.
