It’s the first day of sophomore year for Roberta Romano, but instead of the comfort of her local high school, she's been thrust into the elitist embrace of the affluent Meadowbrook Academy.
Surrounded by wealth, Roberta battles her own insecurities, as well as evil teachers and mean girls, to prove her worth and maybe land the boy of her dreams. With the help of two unlikely allies — and an inflatable toy raft — Robert embarks upon a journey of dark secrets and self-discovery to learn the true meaning of friendship and acceptance.
But, we never made it! A security guard called out, “Hey, you kids! Get away
from there!” We ran for it, leaving the cinnamon pretzels behind.
I liked how at the beginning of each chapter Maccie was kind enough to provide the time of day to the reader. Since this whole novel is over the course of the day, the times really help the reader get a sense of how this day is progressing. This book discussed many issues without making fun or mocking which I found very important. I found the protagonist's POV to be a little unrealistic. But overall this was a good book if you are in the mood for a quick and easy to read YA contemporary.
