I'm having some problems with my account so I'll be borrowing Sabrina's for awhile. (Hey! I didn't give you permi-) Anyway, this is a nice book mainly for girls. All about 2 best friends who start their freshman years and one is popular (In) and the other is not (Out). Girls between the ages of 13-18 will like it the most. Okay, onto the gory details. It is a 4 book series that leaves you wanting for more. I have not read the 4th book 'cause it is not available in the library, or anywhere. It has guy drama and crushes that are just waiting to spill and best of all is has every single type of guy existing as a character. Don't worry it is NOT just a guy-girl relationship book. I am a pretty decent person who never knows what recently happened (not part of the IN crowd) and I loved it. All types of girls are gonna love it, in my opinion. Definitely 5 Cups of Tea for me!
