Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sari and Jess are best friends and total opposites. They've liked each other ever since they discovered that they are the only two normal people at Eldridge Alternative. As they prepare to face the trials of ninth grade, Sari is psyched. Jess, not so much. How can she face the Prada Mafia, the most evil clique at school? Or Mr. McGuiness's unnervingly long nose hair?

What if something really interesting happens to Sari and nothing whatsoever happens to Jess?

Not even Jess can predict the mayhem when Sari falls madly, psychotically in love with David Cole.

David is a senior. David is cool. And he's been dating Thea Melendez for forever. So he can't possibly be interested in Sari. Or can he?

Now Jess has a new worry. Because if David is interested in Sari, Sari may not be interested in being Jess's best friend anymore. Cool is cool and geek is geek, and at Eldridge, the two definitely do not mix.

Review:

"[T]his author clearly knows the psyche of adolescents. Readers will keep turning the pages." Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Mariah Fredericks was born and raised in New York City. She went to a school quite like Eldridge Alternative, though they called it the Calhoun Learning Center. The school had no walls, but remained standing nonetheless. Later she attended Vassar, which did have walls.

She has never lived anywhere else, but she has visited Lenin's Tomb in Moscow, Russia, and other famous places with dead people in them. She has had a lot of jobs, and most of them involved books. She has reviewed books, shelved books, and sold books. "Writing books," she says, "is definitely the best job I've had so far."

Mariah still lives in New York City. Only now she has a husband and a basset hound, as well as a lot of books.
