*Ebook provided by the publisher*

At Penford High School, Britney Taylor is the queen bee. She dates whomever she likes, rules over her inner circle of friends like Genghis Khan, and can ruin anyone's life with a snap of perfectly manicured fingers. Just ask the unfortunate few who have crossed her.
For April Bowers, Britney is also the answer to her prayers. April is so unpopular, kids don't even know she exists. But one lunch spent at Britney's table, and April is basking in the glow of popularity.
But Britney's friendship comes with a high price tag. How much is April willing to pay?

What I thought:

I couldn't help but envision this with the actors from Mean Girls. It felt so much like the movie, that I couldn't help but imagine Regina George as Britney. Overall, I really liked this. It did, however, make me ecstatic that I'm not in high school anymore.

What really grabbed my attention with this was the Lipstick Lawbreakers. I really liked this. One, it gave April a way to salvage part of her pride. Two, she made some good friends. While they were out for revenge, they actually were able to connect with each other with stuff other than getting even.

There were some cringe worthy parts, I couldn't believe some of the stuff they came up with. I'm glad that April tried to rise above towards the end, even if it did come back to bite her afterwords. It would have been a deal breaker if she had really gone through with what she had planned.

The only part I didn't like in this book, was the way April treated Delvin. All the things that she was complaining about Britney with, she was doing to Delvin. I couldn't help but feel sorry for this guy, who just wants nothing more than to have April for a friend.
My Rating:

I agree. I thought April was almost turning into a Britney. I didn't like that part at all. It did feel a lot like Mean Girls.

This book looks really interesting, I'm not much into the whole Mean Girls thing but I think I'll have to make an exception for this book! Great Review!

I loved Mean Girls so I think I'll like the Lipstick Laws too. Thanks for the review!

I haven't heard of this one. I don't love the cover but I do love mean girls so this might one day make it onto my bookshelves.
