Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are best friends and total overachievers. Even if they aren't the most popular girls in school, they aren't too worried. They know their real lives will begin once they get to their Ivy League colleges. There will be ivy, and there will be cute guys in the libraries (hopefully with English accents)! But when an unexpected event shows them they're missing out on the full high school experience, it's time to come out of the honors lounge and into the spotlight. They make a pact: They will each take on their greatest challenge--and they will totally rock it.
Gigi decides to run for student rep, but she'll have to get over her fear of public speaking--and go head-to-head with gorgeous California Will. Bea used to be one of the best skiers around, until she was derailed. It could be time for her to take the plunge again. And Neerja loves the drama club but has always stayed behind the scenes--until now.
These friends are determined to show the world that smart girls really can get what they want--but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for. . . .
I had read and devoured Sarahh's Bubble's series and the Penny Pencher's book and loved them all. I was so stoked about this one, and was thrilled when it showed up at my door step. I always worry when authors cross over into YA. What if I don't like them? What if the spark is gone? Well there was absolutely nothing to be worried about here. Sarah proved to be an amazing author, whether it be adult fiction or young adult fiction.
I absolutely adored this book! It had everything going for it, a fantastic and entertaining plot, a cute boy to drool over, hillarious laughs, and character's that you will fall in love with! I loved that the character's had depth and they weren't just superficial. They felt very realistic and there was nothing over the top, unbelieveable here.
I loved her best friends, they were every bit as smart as she was and together they made this story! The supporting character's in the story were phenominal and some of my favorites! I honestly can't say enough about how suprisingly wonderful this book was!
I honestly wasn't expecting much when I picked it up, but I couldn't put it down. I loved it and I hope that Sarah Strohmeyer has many more YA adventures planned!
