I truely am a picky reader. I will stop in the middle of some books and pick them up a year later. I will also sometimes never pick them up again. I need to be interested in a book and need to be wondering what is going to happen next. This book had those qualitys! I started reading this book and couldn't stop! It is about an 8th grader, Phoebe who is in the popular group. She is rich and is really lucky. Her friends and her plan a huge graduation party. Until her parents have a fianancial issue. Will she have to cancel it? Will her friends still hang out with her? She also finds out that she loves Luke. Does she forgive her and like her back? You'll have to read the book to find out!

Characters:
Initially, I was turned off by the book's characters. Phoebe seemed to be very shallow, I didn't empathize with her situation. Then toward the middle of the book I began to like her and root for her. In the end, Vail succeeded in drawing her reader into the main character. Phoebe became likable and thought provoking as she grew in understanding of her own situation.
Phoebe's best friend, Kaitlyn, on the other hand wasn't a character I thought fit with the story. Her character's description and actions didn't reflect the catalyst necessary to cause Phoebe's own change.

Plot/Conflict/Theme:
The plot wasn't what kept me reading, though entertaining, it was slightly predictable. I would have liked a few more twists and/or a conflict that was less shallow and more substantial. Granted there was a underlying theme here that had the potential to take this book to the next level, but didn't quite make it.

Quality of Writing:
I loved the quality of writing that Rachel Vail produced. She has a way with words that made the novel play out like music on a piano. The character's dialogue was realistic, and the descriptions brought vivid images to the reader's imagination.


My Rating:
Book: A for Average
Cover: B for Brilliant- Book cover was simple and elegant.
