An Extra book !?!

Wasn't expecting another book in the series but this was brilliant. Things have changed in the world- whether it's for the better or worse depends on how you see it. What people care about is their face rank and who's invited to Nina Love's party. Aya is so obsessed...

A Fab Ending to a Fab Series

Whew! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ending. This book is really light-hearted and to me, a break from serious life threatening situation books. Evie is still sassy, sarcastic and fun. I can't get enough of this book and i was sad when it ended.
