Slut or saint? Good friend or bad friend? In control or completely out of it? Life is about making choices, and Natalie Sterling prides herself on always making the right ones. She’s avoided the jerky guys populating her prep school, always topped honor roll, and is poised to become the first female student council president in years. If only other girls were as sensible and strong. Like the pack of freshmen yearning to be football players’ playthings. Or her best friend, whose crappy judgment nearly ruined her life. But being sensible and strong isn’t easy. Not when Natalie nearly gets expelled anyway. Not when her advice hurts more than it helps. Not when a boy she once dismissed becomes the boy she can’t stop thinking about. The line between good and bad has gone fuzzy, and crossing it could end in disaster . . . or become the best choice she’ll ever make. A KIRKUS Best Book of the Year An ALA Best Book for Young Adults "High school has never felt more authentic. . . . Vivian challenges assumptions and sends a positive message about acceptance, forgiveness, and love." -- BOOKLIST "The dialogue and emotional honesty are pitch-perfect. . . . Readers will cheer." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL "A joy to read . . . Full of wry observations, details that delight the senses and perceptions about things that matter." -- PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
