When you're the good girl who does everything they way you're supposed to, it's hard to break out of that role. Natalie Sterling was that girl, in the running for student council president, her life was made up of studying, being on the honor roll, doing what was "right" and always being there for her best friend. She knows who to keep friends and who the popular people are, who aren't worth hanging out with. Soon, that all changes.

Spencer, a freshman at Natalie's school was once a little girl she used to babysit. Little girl no more! Spencer and her freshmen friends prove that they're going to be the statement girls of the school. They dress inappropriately, make themselves stand out from the crowd and of course, try to get in with the popular senior guys. Natalie, on the other hand will have none of this. She tries to find and draw the line that separates what she should be involved in and what she should stop. Slowly, it's easy to see that Natalie can't completely decide what's wrong and what's right and even her feelings start changing. In Connor Hughes, she finds that not all the popular guys are the same.

I thought that this book was super cliche and predictable. Regardless, there was a slight twist in that it was more about Natalie and how she dealt with her friends Spencer and her best friend than her getting the guy. Sure, that's interesting but there's something about those cliche stories that make you keep reading just to see if you're right. I'd recommend this to anyone; it's an easy read. I think that more girls would like it than boys though.
