With Homecoming just around the corner, Marnie and Nola have to get their problems solved in order to have a decent night.
After a whirlwind of events, the ex-best friends' roles are totally reversed.
Once Marnie was confronted by Lizette at the secret password party about her "relationship" with Sawyer, the majors dropped her in a heartbeat. Not only the majors but also Dane, who, although he says he doesn't believe what Lizette said, finds that it is better to keep his reputation intact then to stay with Marnie. Things get even worse when Marnie's perfect sister, Erin, comes home and finds the Fitzpatrick name is ruined -- all because of her little sister. Even Erin can't find it in herself to defend Marnie.
For Nola, on the other hand, things are looking a lot brighter. Matt is starting to open up with her about his mom and they seem to be getting a lot closer, especially since Riley isn't near them to get in Nola's way. Not only that, but Dane is still setting his eyes on Nola, which only makes the other cute guys at school want Nola, too. This could just possibly mean that Nola is in, except she might not want to be.
With Homecoming closing in on the girls, the crown is up for grabs, secret relationships will be revealed, and the chase is on for the perfect date, since you need someone to watch your back when everyone is aiming at you.
With what seems to be the last novel in the IN OR OUT series, Claudia Gabel wraps it up nicely, tying up all of the loose ends and helping us see what true friends are all about. Just remember, being out is always better then being in.
Well, unless you're on Project Runway.
