Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Emma is tired of being "Emma the Good," so when she and her father move to Beverly Hills for her junior and senior years of high school, she decides it is time to change. She understands her father's fears-her mother was an addict and died of an overdose-but he is smothering her with his rules and protectiveness. On her first day at school, she meets Siobhan and the two bond. Siobhan is everything Emma isn't-wild, unafraid, free to do what she wants with a mother who often eggs her on. Emma also meets Dylan, an enigma to whom she is immediately attracted-handsome, smart, a rebel. Siobhan and Emma make a pact that Emma will, during the course of her junior year, sneak out of the house, attend parties, drink, have sex, and attend the legendary Afterparty at the end of the school year. Emma becomes fairly comfortable living her dual life, and her friendships with Siobhan and Dylan grow, until Siobhan hooks up with Dylan at a party and the two begin dating. This is the beginning of the end as things start to spiral out of Emma's control. She is a strong character whose struggle to balance parental expectations and the typical teen desire for freedom reads very realistically. Siobhan, as the bad girl, and Dylan, as the bad boy love interest, are slightly more predictable but still well drawn and relatable. Most of the other characters, including Emma's dad, Siobhan's mother, and Dylan's parents, as well as the "mean girls" at the exclusive private school they all attend, are much more stereotypical. Overall, the book reads like a blend of a standard teen romance with Beverly Hills, 90210 and still manages to be appealing.—Janet Hilbun, Texas Women's University, Denton, TX

From Booklist

Good girls don’t usually kill their best friend, announces high-school junior Emma in an opening, flash-forward scene that clinches immediate interest. A social recluse with an overprotective psychiatrist father, Emma seizes her family’s relocation to L.A. and her entrance into a prestigious prep school as an opportunity to redefine herself. When most of the female students appear to be straight out of the movie Mean Girls, Emma latches on to rebellious and manipulative Siobhan. Together, they set their sights on Afterparty, the height of L.A. parties, and create a bucket list of bad behaviors to check off along the way. While Emma pretends to make fellow student Dylan just another check mark, she falls hard for him, causing a strain with ever-controlling Siobhan. In Stampler’s unflinching look at wealthy, decadent youth and complicated relationships, realistic characters and tight dialogue add to the tension—and there’s plenty of it. Grades 9-12. --Angela Leeper
