And guess what? Victory is hers! Before she knows it, the snotty cool kids have been overthrown-and suddenly Adora is the leader, reveling in her newfound power and popularity.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Holley Wiseman
"Say you want a revolution, well, you know..." What do you know about a revolution, really? Besides the fact that you want to change the world, do you also know revolutions can go awry and lead to unplanned consequences? With the help of best friends Eli and Liza, Dora moves full steam ahead with a term project to stage a revolution. The stage is all set for the rebellion, but as things move forward, unforeseen events surprise them. Before her entire world unravels, Dora must ‘fess up and set things straight. Writing with biting satire and real emotion, Valerie Frankel will have the reader both chuckling and cringing at Dora's hits and misses. Frankel includes family and friend relationships to push, pull, and prod Dora from rebellion through her own revolution. (Editor's note: The sequel, Fringe Girl in Love, is also available. Penguin, NAL, Jam. 263p. c2007. ISBN 0451220462. )
