Overview

Some girls wear makeup to enhance their natural beauty.
Some wear it to make themselves look sexy and mature, in the hopes to attract the attention of a paramour.

Darcy wears hers as a mask, a deterrent, a tribute of sorts to the musical group who got her through her parents' messy divorce.

When she’s uprooted from her hometown in Detroit and plopped down into rural Georgia, the townsfolk don’t know whether she’s an escapee from the circus or a devil worshiping antichrist looking to kill their pets and corrupt their children.

Much to her surprise, Darcy finds herself in the middle of a bizarre love triangle; the preppy good-looking popular boy that all parents would love on one side, and the bad boy heartthrob that would have fathers sitting on their porches with shotguns and mothers buying chastity belts on the other.

Not surprisingly, Darcy also finds herself the object of cruel jokes, bullying and pies in the face. While she’s trying to stand up for what she believes in and exact revenge on those who treat her and her friends badly, she also has to decide between the two guys vying for her attention.

Will one of them really be able to see beyond the makeup and love her for her? Or will she end up just being a pawn in a long standing rivalry between the boys?

*Recommended for older teens age 15+*

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Kristine R.
Really fun book. I read this book in a day and a half and enjoyed it immensely. I went from Team Chaz to Team Judd and back again before settling on my final choice. I also liked the bit of revenge incorporated in the book.

The only warning I would have is that younger YA readers should avoid this due to one pretty steamy sex scene between Darcy and someone else. Not telling!

In the end, you'll be rooting for Darcy and her Riders & laughing along with them.
Goodreads - Meredith S.
A amazing and hilarious story. One wouldn't think that a Juggalette named Darcy would be highly relatable to, but MB has the gift of making all the characters believable, likeable, and has quite the streak of humor woven throughout. Read MB, not Twilight!
Amazon - John Ashline
Not many people can take a fish-out-of-water Juggalette (that's a female Juggalo, I think) and make her relatable, but MB Mulhall does. Interesting theme--I really enjoyed it.
Darcy's story is packed with as much emotion as an actual teenager's life. There are ups and downs, and even a bit of hilarity. Without spoiling anything, I can ask, "Who doesn't find toilet humor hilarious?"If your answer to that is, "Me!", then go away!
MB writes teenage angst rather well, & knows her audience.

    Great fun book!!! Even when Darcy's enemies are mean and even violent with her, she gets back at them with creativity instead of violence. Extremely easy to get into and fast reading. Love it!
