Summary: (From Amazon)

They're back! The rich, designer name-dropping, thoroughly conceited and obnoxious seventh-grade girls of Octavian Country Day School in Westchester, NY, return to compete against one another for who'll be the reigning queen of the school's "in crowd." Super-wealthy, super-indulged Alicia Rivera switches ballot boxes in the vote for a school uniform so that she wins instead of super-wealthy, super-indulged Massie Block. Readers will battle through their annoyance with and desire to choke these two girls, for the believability and humanity found in Claire and Kristen keep the story line moving. Massie and Alicia make mistakes, everyone interferes in the others' lives and loves, and all of the characters learn about their own limitations.

My Thoughts:
I read this book in 7th grade. I had discovered this series through a random book pulling at my local library. It was love at first page. The girls were very mean but it was still pretty clean! I loved how there was more then one main character that was focused on. Each girl was so different in this installment. We begin to finally see who they all really are.

Middle School girls will love this series!
