This book is a real catch & reel. The two girls in the beginning start out as best friends in middle school; next year freshman. as the enter their high school year they start to not hang out with each other because one of them become Tall, thin, and Blonde which means she is the popular girl. Although the other girl does not become popular in a "skinny and blonde" kind of way. she is basically dawned at and becomes popular at her social status. The point is that you don't have to be skinny and blonde to be popular or "in" with the cool kids because you are popular in your own way even if you're look down on as a loser. It's a great book!!
