Will Elise’s love life be an epic win or an epic fail?
At Coral Tree Prep in Los Angeles, who your parents are can make or break you. Case in point:
As the son of Hollywood royalty, Derek Edwards is pretty much prince of the school—not that he deigns to acknowledge many of his loyal subjects.
As the daughter of the new principal, Elise Benton isn’t exactly on everyone’s must-sit-next-to-at-lunch list.
When Elise’s beautiful sister catches the eye of the prince’s best friend, Elise gets to spend a lot of time with Derek, making her the envy of every girl on campus. Except she refuses to fall for any of his rare smiles and instead warms up to his enemy, the surprisingly charming social outcast Webster Grant. But in this hilarious tale of fitting in and flirting, not all snubs are undeserved, not all celebrity brats are bratty, and pride and prejudice can get in the way of true love for only so long.
Can I just say I absolutely loved this book??? I can't even remember the last time I finished a book in less than a day, let alone less than 10 hours during the school year. Yeah, it's that good. I was cracking up while reading it. Out loud. Completely embarrassing, but totally worth it. It's definitely the funniest and cutest book I've read in a very long time. I genuinely loved every character, even the background characters they were all so developed that I instantly adored each of them. I also liked the fact that Elise didn't just suddenly "fall" for Derek because he was insanely famous. She actually wanted to not like him for that reason, but she quickly learns that first-impressions are often very, very wrong. I loved relating to every choice Elise made, living in her shoes, falling in love alongside of her, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who loves a good Chick-Lit read!! Please, please go read it right now!!
