    great story

    Sonya lives in a poor neighborhood with her older sister and her mom. She won 2 tickets to balet in elementry school and wanted to dance. Her mom could not afford to give her lessons but did buy a old pair of dance shoes for her. She found a dance studio that was the close as she could and watched from the windows and tried to copy them. When she got caught she offered to clean in exchange for dance lessons. Has continued now before school which she got into on scholarship and her sister has been thier after trying out 6 times. Sonya tries to be invisible to the students thier she does not fit in only a few black students go their. one day she forgot her dance shoes in her locker and hurried back to get them and a door crashes into her face. will and girl were making out and she realized this was second time she seen him after making out with someone. Sonja looks at him and said you have sad eyes.
    Will has been watching her for a while and asks her out and shes says no. She has no idea who he is or even his name. her sister cant believe she said no to him. between her dance lessons and when she gives lessons she has an hour and will shows up at studio with flowers and gets her to go to eat.
    Thier is a bunch of girls running the school and sets kids up that are in thier way or just for fun. No one knows exactly whos doing it. They dont like Sonja dating the basketball star and try to set her up and break them apart.
    It is a good story and you want to root for sonja and will and see everything work out for the best. I enjoyed the book. I recieved it in exchange for honest review from librarything

    Queen Bee of Bridgeton

    Sonya and Sasha are sisters who live in a rough neighborhood. After many years of persistance Sasha gets admitted to Bridgeton, a well known and highly elite school. Sasha encourages her sister to apply and Sonya ends up attending Bridgeton as well, but never really fits in. Sasha and Sonya hide from their classmates that they are poor and even go so far as to hide where they live from everyone, even their boyfriends. When Sonya crosses the elite and highly secretive group of girls who essentially run the school they do everything in their power to destroy everything that is important to her, her boyfriend, her dancing, and her future. This book is a great read!

    Well Recommended!

    This is a book that follows an old stheme and yet it keeps you engrossed till the end. The book focusses on the issue of high school cliques and the story of a girl who tries to fight back. The story line is similar to novels/movies that use this theme. Yet, it is well written and the main character is interesting.
