by Adele Griffin
New girl Raye Archer is desperate for a way into the In crowd, so when ice-queen Ella Parker chooses her to get back at her ex, the gorgeous Julian Kilgarry, Raye is more than game. Even if it means creating a fake Facebook identity as “Elizabeth” so that she can learn enough about Julian to sabotage him. While a fun and dangerous thrill at first, what Raye hadn’t counted on was falling for Julian herself—and igniting Ella’s rage. As Raye works to reconcile the temptress Elizabeth with her real-life self, Ella serves up her own revenge. Now it’s Raye who falls victim, as Ella creates an online smear campaign of nasty rumors and trashy photographs. Suddenly notorious, Raye has to find a way out of the web of deceit that she’s helped to build, and back to the relationships that matter.
This Blonde’s Review:
Raye Archer was just a nobody at the all girls school she has been attending, while Ella Parker is queen bee. Somehow, they strick up a sort of friendship, where Ella uses Raye to get back at the most popular boy around for Not being interested in her. At first all of the facebook chat is under Ella’s watchful eye, but as time goes on Raye starts to talk to him on her own. She starts to learn that he’s really more than everyone makes him out to be, and he likes her too. This of course angers Ella and soon Raye finds herself smeared on an ‘anonymous’ website. Julian can’t quite stand up to the rumors in spite of what he says he feels. Now Raye has to figure out how to get out of the muck Ella has buried her in, and perhaps get back to the friend she left behind. Maybe even find a guy who really Does like her enough to stand up with her.
In this book Raye has to decide what matters, everyone else’s opinion or her own. While the ending didn’t work out quite how I would have wanted it to, I still found myself smiling at the end.
