And then there's the fact that as Holly gets to know her, Jess isn't fitting the terrible picture Calypso has painted of her."… (more)

I really enjoyed this. It's not the best written piece of YA fiction I've ever read, but Burke seems to capture the essence of the age group very well. And, admittedly, it's totally my kind of YA crack ;)

I'd definitely pick up Burke's other works if I stumbled across them in the local library. ( )

Holly is a new girl on a mission. She has just started at St. Clementine’s and she is out to get revenge on the terrible Jess Flynn, who ruined her friend Calyspo’s life. Calyspo has told Holly that Jess is a liar, a shoplifter and a boyfriend stealer, but the more Holly comes to know Jess, the more she finds it hard to believe – who is telling the truth? ( )
