An intense look at the rules of high school attraction - and the price that's paid for them.

It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.

This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.

Karen Barber | 10143 comments This is such a horrible idea-how can anyone tolerate this? Mean Girls for the modern age...


Karen Barber | 10143 comments First couple of chapters-these girls are vile! No redeeming features that I can see.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83367 comments Mod
They're quite mean, and they're difficult to like.

Rachel Gunter | 2635 comments I'll be starting tonight :) I was away at Harry Potter studios this weekend and I didn't read as much as I hoped so a little behind :)


Karen Barber | 10143 comments Up to chapter 7 - can see this being a really popular read with kids I teach. More interested in the reactions of all the girls to the list.


Karen Barber | 10143 comments About halfway in. Slowly getting to know the various characters, but at this point I'm not that fussed.


Karen Barber | 10143 comments 70% in. Finally getting to see little beyond the surface of these kids, but it all seems so very petty and trivial.


Karen Barber | 10143 comments Finished...not one of my best reading experiences! Shame, as I really really wanted to like this.

So far, not sure what to make of it. Basically the first 8 chapters are showing the reactions of the 8 girls on the list when they realise they're on it. I think the premise of the li..."
