Massie Block: The Briarwood boys have invaded OCD and are taking over everything. Worse, the soccer boys have become so popular that the Pretty Committee's alpha status is in serious jeopardy. So Massie lays out a New Year-New Pretty Committee rule: Anyone caught crushing on a boy will be thrown out of the NPC-forever. But will she be able to follow her own decree when she sees that Derrington has ditched his shorts-obsession in favor of ah-dorable jeans?
I really enjoyed this book. So much, in fact, that I read it all in one day. Which isn't really an accomplishment, but oh well. Anyways, I liked it because it was filled with drama, and I just loved the characters. Massie, I was not a fan of, because she was just so harsh on her friends, as she has been throughout all of the other books. I really liked Dylan's character, in the sense that she was sweet and nice to Derrick/Derrington, and didn't seem as high strung as the other girls. Kristen was really down to earth, like me, so I enjoyed that characteristic or her. Alicia was just a jerk. To everyone. One of my favorite characters had to be Claire, because she isn't high maintenance, isn't stuck up like some of the other characters, and will be nice to somebody, even when they are probably one of the meanest people on earth.
Although this book has a common drama theme, I really enjoyed the aspect it was told from. I could always tell what the characters were feeling, and it surprised me that 13 year old girls acted this way in the novel.
Overall, the book was exceptional. I would recommend it if you like drama and reading about true friendship, but I wouldn't recommend it, again, if you aren't a fan of drama.
