Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—Gracie and Savanna are best friends, despite their differences. Gracie is short, shy, environmentally conscious, and an old movies buff kind of girl. Savanna, on the other hand, is tall, beautiful, and loves shopping and boys. The two have always gotten along until Savanna starts cheating on her boyfriend. She becomes "the worst best friend" ever by canceling or not showing up for things at the last minute. Even worse, she starts involving Gracie in her web of lies and uses her as an alibi to cover her tracks. Despite all of this, Gracie just doesn't recognize what a bad friend Savanna is. Then Savanna interjects herself between Gracie and her new friend/potential boyfriend. The scenario gets nasty and Gracie finally realizes how self-centered Savanna is. From then on their friendship takes a different turn. Fans of chick-lit and Sheldon's previous works will enjoy this book. The author has done a good job of focusing on themes teens will relate to: trust, friendship, and the importance of standing up for yourself. One thing readers may question is why it takes so long for Gracie to see the light.—Shannon Seglin, Patrick Henry Library, Vienna, VA

From Booklist

Gracie’s best friend, Savanna, is a manipulative charmer who refuses to let truth interfere with her vision of life. Like Gracie, Savanna’s boyfriend, Archie, and his friends are merely Savanna’s pawns, who serve as a rapt audience for her stories and plans. But Gracie’s acceptance of her best friend’s foibles begins to erode after Savanna pressures her to lie to Archie, their friends, and both sets of parents so that she can surreptitiously date a college guy. Sheldon borders on the didactic as Savanna piles one ridiculous fabrication and exaggeration upon another, forcing Gracie into a deeper web of uneasy lies. Readers may grow frustrated with Gracie’s ready forgiveness and blind spots about Savanna’s behavior, but the humor and snappy dialogue, though not as polished as in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (1999) and Confessions of a Hollywood Star (2006), will still keep teens engaged and entertained. Grades 6-9. --Frances Bradburn

My worst best friend was the best book ever!!
Amber Walter
I really couldn't stand Savannah, she was very self-involved and was constantly using Gracie and not thinking anything about her feelings.
Angela
I wasn't too keen on the writing style, either.

An entertaining read about best friends, worst friends, and the trouble some people can have telling the difference between the two. This book was a quick read that was light and fun while dealing with something a little more heavy. The thing that it really makes you realize is that sometimes you just have to let people go, even if it hurts, to make your life better.

Gracie was a great character, she was smart, and tough, and very concerned with the environment. She was the complete opposite of her best friend Savannah, who is the ultimate it girl. Savannah is a fly by the seat of her pants, worry about the consequences if they come type of girl. They had figured out that sometimes opposites attract, and they become best friends who are thick as thieves. The problems start when Savannah starts using Gracie as her alibi (without even telling her) and causing Gracie to lie to the people she loves.

I really couldn't stand Savannah, she was very self-involved and was constantly using Gracie and not thinking anything about her feelings. She really was a horrible best friend and I was screaming at Gracie all the way through the book to open her eyes and see what was going on! Gracie's love interest, Cooper, was probably my favorite character of the book. He was funny and quirky and just an excellent guy that was such a joy to read.

I suggest this book to all YA lovers. By the time the book is through you'll either be much more appreciative of your best friend, or you'll be realizing you need a new one!!

My worst best friend was the best book ever!! I am so glad that Gracie starts to listen to her self rather than listening to Savannah. I love the part where Cooper finally admits to Gracie that he likes her. I hope there is a second book!!!! :)

Reading this book, I felt that I was dragging myself through a ditch.

This is just a 'Devil Wears Prada' wannabe (I haven't read the book but I saw the movie). Except with no `Prada' or likeable 'evil' character. There was no information, no fluidity and the characters where awful little brats who sat there and MOAN.
The writing was so bad, the author must have been drunk while she was writing!

I'm trying to say "this was rubbish" in the nicest way possible.
