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.

I began reading The Clique Series in middle school and I was obsessed! The only books I read were the latest Clique's. I was skeptical about the Alpha's series and how it would compare to The Clique. I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy the book so much. Alpha's was so good I didn't want to put down the book! In fact I kept reading until I was finished with Alpha's and Movers & Fakers. I was hooked. The character's are brilliant and entertaining in a unique original plot. I love how the book is narrated in different chapters by the various characters. Charlie is my favorite, her relationship with Darwin makes me gleam with excitement. When I read the last few pages of Movers & Fakers I felt in touch with her and as if I was feeling the same way she was. I was able to relate to her feelings toward a boy -- in her case Darwin. If you are a teenage girl who loves reading about first loves, friendships and betrayals then this series is right for you. In the book, there are different characters to fall in love with for every type of reader. Read this book please, I feel as if I know these characters so get to know them too it will be an excellent choice.

This book is an awesome story for teens of all ages. It shows friendship and forming new relationships with others while competing to be the best, the Alpha. With the struggle of talking to the gorgeous boys on the island and not getting caught, and shinning bright so you get to stay on the island, this book is full of excitement and some drama, but it's worth it!

Between "The Clique" and "Monster High" Lisi Harrison should be made the queen of guilty pleasures. Lucky for her I like guilty pleasures. Interesting book. Original plot. Engaging characters. But predictable. I give this book 4 stars. No cliffhangers but well written and thrilling. This book has Lisi Harrison written all over it.

Movers and Fakers is about teen-aged girls that go to boarding school called Alpha Academy. Alpha Academy is a school just for girls that want to be the best. Shira Brazille is the founder of the school. She lives at the school with her three teenage sons. Each girl attends the school for a different reason, sports, art, music, acting, academics. They all have special talents, or they are supposed to. The girls compete each week to be the top Alpha, but some of them will be sent home. If they remain at the school fame could become famous. Charlie is there because she is so smart. She can invent anything and is very good with computers. She is a family friend of the Brazille&rsquo;s but she would have been accepted anyway because she is so smart. She used to like Shira&rsquo;s son Darwin, but on Shira&rsquo;s demand had to stop so that she could go to Alpha Academy. Allie J. is at Alpha Academy for music. She becomes one of Charlie&rsquo;s only friends. Charlie wants to set up Allie with Darwin. She figures, if she can&rsquo;t have him, then her friend should. But Allie J&rsquo;s real identity comes out, and she is really Allie A. Allie A. is not a musician or singer. The lies she has told Charlie and Darwin affect their relationships. She has no friends at the academy, and Allie is now at risk of being sent home. Music is not really her talent and now she has to prove she has a special talent in order to stay at the academy. Skye is at the academy because he is a talented dancer. However, she is never given special attention in class by the teachers. She decides to quit working so hard at dance and have fun. She wants a boy friend. Two of Shira&rsquo;s sons show interest in her. One tells her to continue to work hard at dance, and the other tells her to loosen up and have fun. She likes spending time with both of them. The book was fun to read because in the end I thought I would find out what happened to each of the girls. I wanted to find out who would be the top alpha. It is about teenage girls so I could relate to some of their issues about friends. The book has drama. It made me want to keep reading. I would recommend this book to teenage girls. I like Lisa Harrison&rsquo;s style of writing. She kept me interested until the very end. It seems like there could be another book in this series
