Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Sophie is one of the most popular girls at Kennedy High, and she's always in the top three of the school's weekly hotness poll. She has the best-looking boyfriend, cool friends, and anticipates getting the lead in the school play. Then a new girl, Angie, takes all of those things, leaving Sophie with a lesser part in the biggest thing that semester: Kennedy's production of The Taming of the Shrew. Now the former it-girl is on the outside looking in, while rumors about her circulate and she plummets in the hotness ratings. Sophie is a shallow, mostly unlikable character whose only goal is to get back her reputation, even at the cost of Monet, a friend who inexplicably endures almost anything while the misguided Sophie learns what is truly important in life. The plot has potential but falls flat. A quick read with little substance.—Julianna M. Helt, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

    Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.com

    Sophie Donnelly has been at the top of the social ladder for the past few years. She's half of the school's IT couple. The other half is her boyfriend, Connor. Things are going well the first day of the new school year. At least until the new girl, Angie Vogel, shows up.

    In just a few short days, Angie manages to snag the lead in The Taming of the Shrew, gain instant popularity, and the icing on the cake...steal Sophie's boyfriend! Sophie trusted Connor, so when he announces quite publicly that they're over, it's all the humiliation Sophie can handle.

    She is determined not to let Angie keep her down, though. She's planeed to stage her own comeback. With the assistance of her best friend, Imogene (I mean Monet...), Sophie hatches one scheme after another. But every attempt to make Angie look bad rebounds on Sophie.

    Through all her turmoil, Sophie has to deal with Monet's irritating older brother, Dev. Little does Sophie realize that what she was looking for was right in front of her all along.

    A quick, quirky read, THE COMEBACK calls to mind such darkly comedic movies as Mean Girls, Election, and Heathers. No matter what Sophie attempts, it always backfires and leaves her worse off than before. For all those teens who are only B-listers or In-crowd hopefuls, THE COMEBACK will make you feel like you're finally getting even.

    This book was A-M-A-ZING

    Marlene Perez writes books that are complicated,romantic, and always has an amazing and shocking twist. This book was spectacular. I always read Marlene Perez books and is hard to believe that I loved all of them from the Dead is series with Daisy Giordano and Jessica Walsh. Marlene Perez is definately one of my number one authors. And thats only the chiloice of three. This book was so good I wish there was a sequel and could read more. I truly enjoyed this book and I'm only 12. I like your creativity and spunk in a story. Keep up the good eork ang I hope you continue writing.
