Three girls, all friends and roommates, each with their own goal at Alpha Academy.

One wants to dance circles around her competition while getting the boy she wants; one wants to prove to the headmistress that she's worth her weight in gold and tell the truth to her ex-boyfriend about their breakup; and one hopes that no one will find out she's using someone else's acceptance letter and identity at the Academy.

When the real Allie J. Abbott comes to Alpha Academy, Allie A. finds herself lonely, without friends, and without a boyfriend. Skye finds herself hating the real Allie J. and wants to find a way to get her kicked out of the academy. When Charlie offers to knock out the island's security cameras, fate seems to be on her side, but will she be able to win the guy, win the competition, and still be true to herself?

Charlie is trying to keep the peace in their dorm house, but it's hard when the one she thought was her best friend turned out to be somebody she wasn't. Charlie comes up with a brilliant idea to knock out all of the security cameras, so that her friends can really shine and outshow Allie J. while mending their friendships. It seems like the perfect plan for everyone, but will Charlie be able to forgive Allie A. and give up her ex-boyfriend to help her roommate out?

Honesty and loyalty are tried, romances tested, and friendships are on rocky ground at Alpha Academy. Only one person can win the title of Alpha. Who will get sent home and who will stay to try and achieve their dream?

This story is really well-done. The characters are easy to relate to, the problems they face are believable, and the plot is well-developed. MOVERS AND FAKERS will appeal to any girl who's ever faced betrayal, competition, and/or boyfriends.

Readers who have liked the CLIQUE series as well as realistic fiction will especially enjoy this sequel to ALPHAS.

    Dramatic as always

    I have found the Alpha's series to be really interesting, more so than The Clique series that Lisi Harrison has penned. The characters all seem to have much more going on than the very two dimensional in her other books. What I really like is the fact that not only are the girls struggling to succeed at the Alpha Academy, they are also struggling with each other and against the woman behind the Academy, Shira. I was so happy to see some of the girls getting more confident and really working together to make things better, but I can only wonder if that is short lived. This is a great series if you like Ms. Harrison's work, and want to move into something with a little more bite to it.
