Publisher Comments:

Looking for a new beginning after a terrible mean girl past, Charlie Healey realizes thereas no escaping high school drama.

Charlie Healey thinks Harmony Falls is the beginning of a whole new life. Middle school was brutal. But high school is Charlieas big chance to start over and stay out of drama, except that on her first day she runs into Will, her exabest friend, who had moved away. Now a varsity athlete and hotter than Charlie remembered, Will hangs with the crowd running the school. But Charlie doesnat understand their power until an innocent delivery guy falls victim to a near-deadly hazing prank.

Torn between doing whatas right and her secret feelings for Will, Charlie must decide whether to turn in her very best friend or live with the guilt of knowing what he did.

Rosalind Wisemanas first novel for young adults is a fresh, funny, and juicy read about friendship, betrayal, and how far some will go to be accepted.
