My best friend was now my deadliest enemy, the one person I'd hate beyond all measure for the rest of my life . . . Franny Barker's best friend, Alice, is the worst girlfriend in the world according to the many boys of Merrycliffe-on-Sea. She toys with them, then dumps them. But she'll never dump fashion-obsessed Franny. Nothing and no one can come between them. Not even tousle-haired rock god, Louis Allen, who Franny's been crushing on hard. Until Alice, bored with immature boys and jealous of Franny's new college friends, sets her sights on Louis. Suddenly, best friends are bitter rivals. Is winning Louis's heart worth more than their friendship? There's only one way for Franny to find out.

The name of this book originates from "Alice Jenkins is the worst girlfriend in the world." which is scrawled on the boys public toilet wall.
Franny and Alice have been best friends since they were babies, and have gone to the same primary and secondary school as each other. Franny and Alice are inseparable, until college starts and Franny's mothers condition takes a turn for the worst.
Alice is a serial snogger, Franny is a one man gal. Franny has a serious crush on Louis, the lead member of Thee Desperadoes. Alice decides to give Louis a shot... But will it have irreversible damage on their best-friendship?

This book was so well written it didn't even matter that it wasn't my usual genre of books. There was a nice amount of detail without going overboard, no repetitive actions, I felt like I could understand everything that was going on. The thoughts/feelings of Franny made sense to me, so it seems like a completely viable story-line.
I just loved this book, and I am looking forward to reading more of Sarra's books.
I loved it so much that I stayed up until 1am, and I hope you will too!

Thanks for reading my review!
