Publisher Comments:

When having money is all that matters, what happens when you lose it all?

Perfect, picturesque Orchard Hill. It was the last thing Ally Ryan saw in the rear-view mirror as her mother drove them out of town and away from the shame of the scandal her father caused when his hedge fund went south and practically bankrupted all their friends — friends that liked having trust funds and new cars, and that didn't like constant reminders that they had been swindled. So it was adios, Orchard Hill. Thanks for nothing.

Now, two years later, Ally's mother has landed a job back at the site of their downfall. So instead of Ally's new low-key, happy life, it'll be back into the snake pit with the likes of Shannen Moore and Hammond Ross.

But then there's Jake Graydon. Handsome, wealthy, bored Jake Graydon. He moved to town after Ally left and knows nothing of her scandal, but does know that he likes her. And she likes him. So off into the sunset they can go, right? Too bad Jake's friends have a problem with his new crush since it would make Ally happy. And if anyone deserves to be unhappy, it's Ally Ryan.

Ally was hoping to have left all the drama in the past, but some things just can't be forgotten. Isn't there more to life than money?

Synopsis:

Ally Ryan would rather be in Maryland. She would rather be anywhere, in fact, than Orchard Hill, site of her downfall. Well, not hers exactlyand#8212;but when your fatherand#8217;s hedge fund goes south and all your friends lose their trust funds, things donand#8217;t look so sunny for you. Her mother moved her to Maryland to flee the shame, but now theyand#8217;re moving back. Back to the country-club, new-car-every-year, my-family-came-over-on-the-Mayflower lifestyle that Ally has outgrown. One bright spot, however, is gorgeous, intense Jake Graydon. But it wonand#8217;t be easy for the two of them to be togetherand#8212;not if his friends (her former friends) have anything to say about it. Is Ally ready to get thrown back into the drama of the life she left behind?

She's So Dead to Us is a thoroughly fun read! Ally Ryan has had to move out of her mansion on "the Crest" in disgrace. When her family slunk out of their house to avoid creditors, she never had a chance to say goodbye to her friends. Now that she's moving back to her old town, even though she knows that things have changed, she's hoping that her friends will look beyond her father's actions and see her for the person that she's always been.

Things aren't that simple - and as the title of the book suggests, Ally Ryan's status has markedly changed. Fortunately, she's retained her sense of humor, her biting wit, sense of self, amazing physical prowess, and good looks. Ally Ryan poor still attracts the boys' attention just as she always did - but this time the rich boys aren't willing to be seen with her.

Ally makes her own way and forces everyone to take her on her own terms. Though Ally sometimes wishes that the gorgeous soccer star Jake Graydon would get a spine, the back and forth between Ally and Jake works. I shared Ally's impatience with Jake, but the book is a fun read. I was rooting for Ally from the start - and thoroughly enjoyed that she lived up to her potential! I found the ending a little abrupt - it seems like She's So Dead to Us must have a sequel. I certainly want to find out what happens with Ally, Jake - and Ally's parents!
