Overview

In this YA contemporary romance, there's only one rule: Keep your enemies close and your friends closer.

Olivia Clayton has mastered the art of tearing others down to stay on top. She and her best friend, Adrienne, rule their small southern town like all good mean girls do through intimidation and manipulation.

After Olivia suffers a family tragedy and catches Adrienne sleeping with her boyfriend, Olivia is over it. She decides to make a change, but it's impossible to resist taking down Adrienne one last time. Up to her old tricks, Olivia convinces golden boy Whit Du Rant to be her SAT tutor and her fake boyfriend. But when it starts to feel real, Whit gets caught up in Olivia and Adrienne s war.

Olivia may ruin everything she touches, but she won't go down without a fight not if it means losing Whit.

And definitely not if it means losing what's left of herself.

In this soapy look into the lives of mean girls, friends Olivia Clayton and Adrienne Maynard have spent years mocking their peers in their small South Carolina town. Now seniors, Adrienne still takes joy in punishing anyone who crosses her, but Olivia has been changed by the death of her older brother. That said, after she catches her boyfriend hooking up with Adrienne, Olivia wants revenge. Interspersed flashbacks offer glimpses of Olivia and Adriennes tangled past, and back in the present, debut author Devore maintains sympathy for a heroine trying to redeem and reform herself. Olivias interior world is full of layers and emotional complexity, and readers will root for her to find her way through the crises and roadblocks Adrienne sets in her path, not to mention her own not-infrequent missteps. As Olivia enters into a fake relationship with school golden boy Whit DuRant, wrecking his pristine reputation in the process, the hope that Olivia will finally start trusting in her better instincts should keep readers invested in her story. Ages 15up. Agent: Diana Fox, Fox Literary. (Jan.)
