Jude Leigh and her friends are considered a freak by most of the kids at her school. Actually the correct term is Goth. They like wearing black clothing. One day after Mr. Parton, the boring, sadistic trig. teacher, pushes Jade to far, she is sent once again to the principals office. She doesn't find out until the next morning what her punishment is. She is told she is going on a field trip. Thinking this is one of those trips meant to scare her straight, like taking her to a prison or bad side of town, Jade doesn't worry to much. She is driven to an abandoned warehouse where she is strapped to a bed and sedated. She is told she is going to take part in a virtual reality game. When she wakes up the next morining she thinks at first its all a bad dream since she is back in her own room and everything looks normal. Okay so her dad is acting a little strange at breakfast but don't all dads act a little weird at times?! She heads on off to school and thats when things really start to get a really weird. Kids who would never talk to her or call her names are now waving to her and asking her if she needs a ride to school. When she gets to school she totally freaks! Everything is totally the opposite of what it should be. Her friends won't talk to her and they're dressing like 'norms'. Everyone else is dressing like her, Goth! She has suddenly become popular and the school *itch, Mercedes, has become what she used to be. It will take the help of the school 'hunk', Clarke, and Mercedes to get things back to the way they should be. Okay to be fair this book is written for young adult but I don't think anyone over the age of 12 will read it. Even for a young adult book the writing is really bad. Ms. Showalter should stick to writing adult fiction which she is very good at.
