When Casey McCloy steps into the elegant Bramford building, she's overwhelmed. Fresh from the Midwest, she's moved to New York's Upper East Side to live with her grandmother and attend the prestigious Meadowlark Academy. Here all that matters is who you know. The girl to know is Madison Macallister: popular, pretty, platinumblond. She's not just Casey's new classmate and neighbor; she's an icon. So Casey aims to get in with Madison and her gorgeous gal-pals from the start. As the reigning queen of coolness, Madison is capable of destroying reputations with one welltimed whisper. Better to be on her good side.But after a city-haute makeover from her new frenemy Madison, Casey is wearing the right clothes, saying the right things, and meeting the right people-including Drew, the boy-about-town who Madison thinks belongs to her and her alone.

I thought this book was okay. I am not a huge fan of switching narrators every chapter. I also thought the was wasn't very realistic. How many people really move into a apartment with Grandma and become friends with three popular girls and steal the head girls boyfriend in the first day you move to New York. And a sweet place. But I did like the problems that you read about. I also thought some of the characters were relatable and easy to read. The book was also predictable.
