Popularity is the best revenge.

In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend.

But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren--starting with her boyfriend.

Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.


Praise for What Would Emma Do? by Eileen Cook:

"Sassy and sly and sweet all at the same time, this book made me laugh out loud." -- Meg Cabot , author of The Princess Diaries and Airhead

"Not since Judy Blume's Margaret introduced herself to God has there been such a funny, genuine, conflicted, wanna-be-sorta-good-maybe-later girl as Emma. Cook's tone as she takes on the big ones--life, love, faith, and friendship--is pitch perfect." -- Jacquelyn Mitchard , author of The Midnight Twins and The Deep End of the Ocean

"Smart and fun and full of heart." -- Sarah Mlynowski , author of Bras & Broomsticks and How to Be Bad

I really thought the novel was good. the ending wasn't the greatest in the world though. I quite enjoyed the book otherwise

personally, I HATED the ending. I also think the author should rewrite the book. I mean, the basic idea IS pretty good, but really? Not so much.

I was expecting this novel to be better but it turns out to be boring. I liked it at first but when the love interest was introduced, it sort of fell for me. Everything got boring so I just skipped to the end and it felt like it wasn't worth finishing.
