Children's LiteratureWelcome to Brookhaven High, where some girls would die to be part of the in crowd. One is a killer; before the school year is over, three will die. Who will make the cut? The pretty little devils is the most popular clique in school. Sylvia Orly is the ruthless ring leader of the clique. Megan Williams and Carolyn Bosch will do anything to stay on Sylvia's good side. Ellen Schmidt is the group's scapegoat, and the newest member, Hazel Stone, just wants to be noticed. Popularity comes with a price because of the things one has to do in order to keep in good standing. The other big player is Brandon Wilde, one of Brookhaven's jocks. He is juggling relationships and has tons of girls after him. Matty Vardeman is the mysterious new guy who has caught Hazel's attention. Breana Wu, head cheerleader, will do whatever it takes to get what she wants--and what she wants is Matty. She is also the PLD's top rival. It is a very interesting book that will keep one "at it" to the end because of the mystery and the intrigue. It is a bit disturbing because of the cruelty and attacks against weaker and not-so-popular students. This book is thought provoking because we know that some of this behavior goes on in our schools. It will probably become a popular book with teens. 2006, Razor Bill/Penguin, Ages 14 to 18.
