This book reminded me of the movie "mean girls". I think because both had main characters who arrive at a new school and are pretty enough to get into the "in" crowd and then aren't sure if that's where they want to be. In this case, Rio is the daughter of a famous model, so she has the genes to infiltrate the beautiful crowd, which is what her mother would love her to do, but initially she feels more comfortable with the art geeks. Soon she gets very popular but there are consequences (similiar again to the movie mean girls), and eventually Rio learns who are her real friends.

Dear God! Do NOT waste your time reading this book! Just go out and rent "Mean Girls" on DVD and you will have the exact same story/plotline only the characters have different names.

This book was shallow and unrealistic. 1/2 star!

Halfway into the book and I must say, I'm highly disappointed at the amount of drug use, drinking, sexual suggestions, swearing and lack of morals!
I would not recommend this book for younger readers(I was pre-reading for my 10 year old who wanted to read it), as the content portrays giving in to peer pressure & inappropriate behaviors as something that everyone in high school is doing.
