bookshelves: high-school, mean-girls
Reading for the 2nd time. Most recently started August 3, 2022.

(I'm waffling between 3 and 4 stars, but let's round up high. I liked this.) This was fun! And I was so relieved Claire/Helen came to her senses before everything got truly out of control, and that she got to set things straight and be honest to Brenda and Christopher before they found out what she'd been doing through other sources. By the end I'm not sure I know Claire/Helen all that well myself, but I found her sympathetic enough, rooted for her (to stop the revenge plot, mostly, which she eventually did, but also to stay friends with Brenda and maybe also Bailey and Kyla, and to be herself with Christopher), and enjoyed the book.

70.0% "We have hit the point where I'm like, you have lovely friends, a potential boyfriend, you're popular, you're wondering if you should give up the revenge plot -- so ACTUALLY GIVE IT UP. Or just don't wonder if you should, because it only served to stretch my incredulity."
