Summary: Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard--falling from it is even harder. Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome, an all-girl clique both feared and revered by the students at Hallowell High... until vicious rumors about her and her best friend's boyfriend start going around. Now Regina's been "frozen out" and her ex-best friends are out for revenge. If Regina was guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth and the bullying is getting more intense by the day. She takes solace in the company of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past who she herself used to bully. Friendship doesn't come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina works hard to make amends for her past, she realizes Michael could be more than just a friend... if threats from the Fearsome Foursome don't break them both first.

Tensions grow and the abuse worsens as the final days of senior year march toward an explosive conclusion in this dark new tale from the author of Cracked Up To Be

This book was amazing. It felt so real and it didn't hold back on the bullying. Regina got hit HARD with the bullying from locker painting to a I hate Regina Afton group online. It was real and gritty but it did have a few problems with it.

This book was so addicting. I started reading this book right before my school started so it did stay with me and it still is. It also took you in so many directions you didn't know what was going to happen next. Which I didn't expect with this.

I really liked Regina and Michael. I felt really bad for Regina but some of the decisions she made were just stupid and sometimes she would start feeling bad for herself when she did the same thing to many other people. Michael was your typical quiet guy who was also a writer. The only thing that I didn't like about him was that he forgave Regina too fast. It was like "I know you ruined my life,but your hot, so I forgive you."

The whole fearsome foursome made me sick. But especially Anna and Kara. They were the biggest bitches and let's just say they better get karma thrown back at them. I hate them! I really did! I wanted to just go away and never come back.

Overall: An amazing book filled with a lot of twists and turns.

4.5 stars
