Pretenders by Lisi Harrison

Every year at the fucktabulous Noble High, 5 students are nominated as the most outstanding of that year. They are dubbed the "Phoenix Five". One of these spectacular teens has snagged the personal journals of the rest, and wants to expose them all as fakes. This individual distributes the journals to the entire school for all to see.

Basically what you get are the ramblings of five teens. One girl who pretends to be various actresses, two forgettable guys, some other random chick. The final teen is a girl who is obsessed with one of the guys and stalks him. She also steals his stuff and hoards it in her closet.

The journals consist of crushes, teen angst, crushes, more teen angst, parties, unattainable crushes, and last but not least, teen angst. It bored me to tears.

If you need a teen angst fix, I highly recommend watching these guys.

They got it right.

Just to add, this book wins the award for worst ending in the history of any book I have ever read. Simply because there isn't one.
