Publisher Comments:

Are you IN or are you OUT? Find out in the launch of this exciting new YA series that explores the drama of high school friendship — the ups and downs, the scandals and secrets, the romance and rivalries.

Bubbly Marnie and shy Nola are best friends forever...but everything changes when ninth grade starts. Marnie has set her sights on the IN crowd, led by beautiful hipster-girl Lizette, and she also falls hard for charismatic hottie Dane. Nola wants her friendship with Marnie to remain as it was, and, despite her crush on a geeky-cute boy, isn't ready to date yet. Marnie doesn't get why Nola seems content to remain OUT. Nola doesn't get why Marnie is so desperate to get IN. Before long, their friendship is over, and all-out war has been declared! Are you prepared to pick a side?

Review:

"'Gabel's debut novel centers on two longtime best friends with very different perspectives about entering ninth grade. Shy, timid Nola, who 'usually went unnoticed in a crowd,' is terrified of starting high school. Self-confident, boy-crazy Marnie, who has always lived in the shadow of her popular older sister, is excited to 'totally reinvent herself.' She assures Nola that they will soon become 'two of the most popular girls in our class.... And of course, no matter what happens, we'll always have each other.' The story follows a predictable path, as Marnie worms her way into the popular posse, led by mean girl Lizette, who possesses the power to decide 'what's in and what's out, not to mention who's in and who's out.' Nola, of course, is 'out,' and is crushed when her 'in' pal increasingly ignores her. She finds solace in the attention that a kind, cute boy pays her, yet again feels let down when she discovers that he has a long-distance girlfriend. Meanwhile, Marnie reels in a 'preppie demigod and all-around amazing' sophomore, who of course (Nola discovers) is a bit of a cad. The tale brims with references to fashion and pop culture. Gabel ably captures each girl's point of view and she leaves several strands of plot hanging — unresolved issues that will be taken up in the second installment, due this fall. Ages 12-up. (June)' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
