Sometimes being popular isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Lishia Vance is totally baffled. One day she has friends. The next day everyone has turned against her. No explanation. Just complete social isolation. Even her best friend Janelle isn't giving her the time of day. 

Now she has one goal for her junior year at Kingston High: make a new best friend.

When Lishia makes a connection with Riley Atkins, a popular cheerleader, things start looking up. But is Riley really as good a friend as she seems? Or is Lishia better off without her?
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first, but it was still good. This book focused on the darker side of high school, such as the drinking parties and it even had a small bit about a date rape drug. While I think it was good that Carlson included those details, because they are common, I still felt it was quite a darker tone to the first book. I also felt that Lishia had to be partially blind, because of how she acted in the beginning which then fueled the rest of this book. I'm not saying this wasn't a good read, I just feel that this book isn't appropriate for a younger age group. Still an excellent book!

I received this book free for review from Revell Blog Tours. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
