    Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.com

    When your best friend is a blonde California goddess, being second best comes naturally. Chloe and Bridget share a friendship that most of Chloe's friends feel is one-sided and only in Bridget's best interest. But Chloe is always quick to defend Bridget and explain that Bridget has been there for her through all the worst times. <BR/><BR/>But playing second fiddle finally hits home when Alex walks through the door of Gino's, the pizza parlor and pool bar that Chloe feels is her second home. What's more, Alex comes over to Chloe, not Bridget, and starts talking to her. For once, Chloe feels like maybe there is something she can have that Bridget can't get. <BR/><BR/>But that idea quickly fades. And battle lines are drawn when Bridget tells Chloe that she can never have something that should belong to her. Chloe can't believe the way Bridget is behaving, and can't imagine that after all their years of friendship, a boy would come between them. <BR/><BR/>But Alex is a player and seems to know exactly how to manipulate both girls and still come out on top. <BR/><BR/>With the support of her other friends, Chloe comes to realize she doesn't have to be second best and can have exactly what she wants. Is it Alex after all? Or is it someone else that was always right in front her? <BR/><BR/>Ms. Perez writes a sweet novel of first love, with a pool hall as the background of the story. Besides first love, Chloe is dealing with separated parents and an impending pool tournament. Chloe has always been good at pool, and now a tournament at Gino's worth $2000 is a prize that she's determined to win. The story is light and moves quickly enough that it can be read in one sitting. The reader is rooting for Chloe the entire time, hoping she can see that just because you've known someone for a long time, it doesn't mean that you necessarily know them anymore.

    Horribly Written

    This book was just completely horribly written. I admit, she was trying out a cute idea but the way it was written made it hard to get through. I'm usually a fast reader but this book took me about a week to get through and it's only about 200 pages. She would write things and then forget that she didn't mention it before and she would have to explain really fast what she was talking about. Also, she would repeat herself over and over. At one point, she was talking about another friend telling her that her ex-best friend was there and as her friend was telling her, her best friend walked through the FRONT door, seemingly having just arrived. I just believe it was poorly written and if it hadn't been, I'd give it a much higher recommendation.
