Overview

Chelsea's school year has taken a turn for the worse. After being dumped by her boyfriend and humiliated at the pep assembly by her younger sister's boyfriend, Rick, she's just concentrating on avoiding any other major embarrassments.

That's when Rick and his band debut their new album, complete with a whole set of songs bashing cheerleaders. Chelsea's humiliation has reached a whole new level now that everyone is walking down the halls singing the words to "Dangerously Blonde."

It's time to make Rick pay. All he wants is to win the High School Idol audition, so he can be on his way to rock star fame and fortune. But with the help of her best friends, Aubrie and Samantha, Chelsea is going to steal his victory right out from under him.

The characters from All's Fair in Love, War and High School are back, only this time it's payback.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Chelsea, the book's narrator, has many friends among the cheerleaders, football team and her peers. Her sister Adrian, two years younger, is jealous. She wears black clothing and paints her nails with black polish; her appearance does not help her fit in. The girls' mother is a single parent and depends on Chelsea to help keep an eye on Adrian. Tension between the girls heightens when Chelsea decides she does not like Adrian's "loser" boyfriend. After a bit of sparring, Chelsea enters a talent contest in hopes of winning over Adrian's boyfriend. Unbeknownst to Chelsea, Adrian pulls some dirty tricks on her back-up singers, almost ruining her chances in the contest. As the girls' conflict escalates, Adrian turns to an unlikely ally for help. But whose help does she really need? There are many interesting ups and downs in this book, and the ending is sure to please its readers.
School Library Journal

Gr 7-10- Chelsea, 17, is a popular cheerleader. Her sister, Adrian, 15, is a Goth who resents the attention her sibling gets. Adrian's boyfriend is the rock star of their high school, and he's taken on his girlfriend's grudge. Unfortunately for Chelsea, his entire repertoire consists of belittling her and her cheerleading compadres with songs he writes such as "Dangerously Blonde." After her routine at the all-school pep assembly is sabotaged by such a performance, Chelsea attempts to get even by outshining him in the national High School Idol show to be televised from their town. The plot grows more complicated as Chelsea finds herself smitten with a mysterious college student. Not high literature, but a fun addition to chick-lit collections.-Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL
