Sixteen-year-old Rio Jones dumps the friends she has made at her new Southern California private school in favor of cheerleader Kristie and an exclusive clique, an eye-opening experience for all concerned.

McMillan Palgrave

Dorks, Dweebs, Debutantes, and Jocks—Where would you fit in?

Being the new girl is tough—just ask sixteen-year-old Rio Jones. A New York transplant, Rio has no clue how she's going to fit in at her fancy new private school in Southern California. Plus, being late, overdressed, and named after a Duran Duran song doesn't make the first day any easier for her.

Then Rio meets Kristi. Beautiful, rich, and a cheerleader, Kristi is the queen bee of Newport Beach. And Kristi isn't friends with just anyone, so Rio is thrilled when she's invited to be part of the most exclusive, popular clique. Of course, like any club, Kristi and her friends have rules: Always smile (even if you don't mean it), always dress cute (and never repeat outfits), and always flirt (but only with jocks, preps, and rich college guys).

At first Rio is having a great time, but as she becomes more immersed in this jet-set crowd, she figures out there is one last rule that her new friends forgot to mention: Don't cross Kristi . . . in Alyson Noël's Art Geeks and Prom Queens.

A recent transplant from New York, sixteen-year-old Rio Jones is out of place in her fancy new Southern California private school, until she falls in with Kristi, who is beautiful, wealthy, and popular and who invites her to become part of her exclusive clique, but Rio soon discovers that she may be in over her head with the jet set crowd.

Great book but, like most books ; it has a predictable ending. The book had great plot twists and turns though.

I like Alyson's stories, but this just felt like Mean Girls with a twist.
