P.S. I Loathe You by Lisi Harrison.
I finished this book today. Now I'm pretty sick so this will be a lame review.
Title: P.S. I Loathe You.
Author: Lisi Harrison.
Book Number: #10 in the Clique series. (Not counting the summer editions.)
Book Number: #16 in my 50 book challenge.
Summary: Massie Block:When the Pretty Committee deems its boy-fast null and void, boy fever sweeps through BOCD. What better way to backhandspring into new crush Dempsey's heart-and make old crush Derrington jealous-than cheer for him on the soccer field? And just like that, Massie forms BOCD's first-ever cheerleading squad. But will Massie still have something to cheer about when Dempsey starts spending ah lot of time with LBR Layne Abeley? Give me an "E" for Ehmagawd!
Kristen Gregory: With Massie and her SBFF (secret best friend forever) Layne vying for the same boy, Kristen has to make a choice: A) the Pretty Committee, or B) the Witty Committee. And if she doesn't choose fast, she'll end up C) Committeeless.
Dylan Marvil: Is hiding something, and it's not just those peanut butter Luna bars stashed under her mattress. She's got a secret crush on Derrington-and it's no secret that he likes burpilicious redheads. . . .
Alicia Rivera: Prefers pliés to pom-poms, especially when Massie orders her to the bottom of the cheer-pyramid. Can Alicia accept her beta status, or is it time to become alpha of her own squad?
Claire Lyons: Now that she's back with Cam, Claire finally has her love life in order. But her friends are trading crushes like styling tips. Will the Pretty Committee survive the boy-swap intact, or is the Clique about to come apart at the seams?
K, for me, this is one of my favorite Clique books. It's one of those books that has so many emotions that your heart hurts after reading it and you want to read it again even though you just finished it.
Now, I read this quickly, so chances are I'll have to reread it someday. Right now I don't think I'm up to it though.
The thing I loved about this one was that everyone's actions caught up to them completely. (That's an indirect hint, by the way.) It gives you a much better look at all of the characters.
(And I was very surprised to realized that some of the stuff I put in my fanfic very well happened in the book. :/)
It's a really really great book, that's all I can say. The ending is ah-mazing.
So go read it. ;)
