Waiting On Wednesday (30)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers.

Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard–-falling from it is even harder. Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome. And just like the other members of this all girl clique, she was both feared and revered by the students of Hallowell High... that is until vicious rumors about her and her best friend's boyfriend start going around. Now she's been "frozen out" and her ex-friends are out for revenge. If Regina was guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth, and the bullying is getting more intense by the day.

Out of desperation, she takes solace in the companionship of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past who she herself used to bully. Friendship–and eventually romance–doesn't come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina makes amends for her past, a bond begins to form, while threats from the Fearsome Foursome are poised to break them both.

I don't think there's a reason not to like this one, especially ones who have read Cracked Up To Be. The synopsis just sounds awesome. I really like stories on popular girl who's back-stabbed then came back for revenge. And it seems even more compelling that in this book she teams up with a guy to get back on the other girls. Seriously can't wait to see what happens, and more importantly, how it ends.

Be prepared on Jan 5th 2009 cos Some Girls Are to get you!
