1.5*s at most. Very pedestrian. Not awful, but average beyond repair. The main character is annoying and one of the stupid "not like other girls" contingent, which, of course, means that she is the epitome of mediocrity and exactly like the majority of girls her age. Complete with insufferable pretentiousness.

The plot is both convoluted and formulaic. The other characters are walking cardboard cutouts of ridiculous stereotypes.

Disappointing.

I read this in sixth grade and it introduced me to concepts such as SATs and the White House. For real, did not know what those things were at the time.

You know you are getting old when you think the heroine needs to grow up and get over herself-identifying more with the parents/elder people.

I first read this book in middle school and really enjoyed it-- I have to say, less enjoyable as an adult, but still pretty fun for a quick read.
