I thought that this book was surprisingly good. Even though the girls were in 7th grade, they acted a LOT older. I was shocked at how young girls start acting snobbishly. It was interesting to see how the rich and famous live. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down! Fans of Gossip Girl and the A-List will like this book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens.
