Summary from Amazon.com:

In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose—ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations—and tear at your heart.


Mean Girls meets Perks?! Count me in!! This is another HarperTeen (yay for Harper!) title I've had pre-ordered on Kindle for ages, and it still seems like it's months and months away. I love the sound of this one, not least because it's set in a US high school and is about a popular girl and a loner. Roll on release day!
