Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best-selling author of CONFESSIONS OF A DRAMA QUEEN takes a smart, funny look at friendship, staying true to your identity, and moving on.

Gracie and Savannah are best friends —and utterly unalike. Savannah is beautiful, outrageous, and irresistible to the opposite sex. Gracie is shy, smart, and would rather be studying lizards than meeting boys. Still, theyve made a surprisingly great team, and (until now) it seemed as if nothing could come between them. But lately, Savannahs talent for lying and manipulating is becoming harder to ignore. Shes fallen head over heels for an elusive college boy, and Gracie cant help wondering: is her friend as confident as she seems? When Savannah gets between Gracie and her crush, the line separating best friend from worst friend is crossed.

Review:

"Something happened to end Gracie's best friendship with the beautiful, beloved yet ditzy Savanna but Gracie won't say what. Instead Sheldon (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen) unfolds their friendship's demise slowly, developing the complex dynamics of their relationship as well as the girls' individual personalities. As Gracie and Savanna's connection grows ever more tenuous--Savanna is constantly standing up Gracie (and others) and forcing her to lie on her behalf--the never-been-kissed Gracie has an unexpected suitor: the odd but adorable Cooper, who ropes her into volunteering with him. Gracie's down-to-earth narration and passion for protecting the environment makes Savanna's shallow and clueless nature all the more grating, though Savanna is never reduced to a mean-girl caricature. Instead, her actions come across more as misguided than intentionally cruel, and readers should relate to Gracie's painful experience of growing beyond a once-treasured friendship. Nevertheless, it's a relief when Gracie realizes that she has changed but that Savanna will not, and finally lets her go. Ages 12 — up. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
