“Readers will again find Molly's Midvale world full of bawdy talk, pot smoking, and naughty pranks, but they will appreciate the smart insights, too.... This is fun fare--and deeper than a typical prep school series.” ―Publishers Weekly
“The tongue-in-cheek humor, posh prep-school lifestyle, and teen romantic angst make this perhaps the most enjoyable and believable chapter in the lives of Midvale's preppies.” ―Booklist

This is a great story with a great conflict. The characters of Molly and Pilar were very good. Both start out unlikeable but they grow personally through the course of the story. There are some hilarious moments and sad moments throughout as the students deal with the classifications they've been given, ex. the smart one or the pretty one. What the author does wonderfully in this context is show their inner, secret thoughts, then what they actually say to others. This book was a nice surprise. Highly recommended.
Being inside Pilar's head was a fun. She seems really shallow at first, but you begin to understand why, and then there is major character development. I found myself pitying her, and liking her more than Molly.
I also found the development of Edie quite interesting. Again, like the first book, the descriptions of people and their reactions was great. The reactions of boys to Pilar are priceless and can have you laughing out loud.
I DEFINITELY recommend this book.
I enjoyed this book much more than the first book in the series and did not want to put it down. Gideon's mind was pretty one tracked about girls and sex. Seeing inside of Pilar's mind was much more interesting. We see that while Pilar is arguably the most beautiful girl on campus she still has her own insecurities and wants to be known for more than being the dumb cutie. I found myself liking her much more than I did in the last book and even found myself liking her more than Molly. I actually felt sorry for Pilar and was hoping there would be a happy ending for her. This book will have you smiling and laughing to yourself as you read what goes through Pilar's head.
While we do not see as much of Gideon's roommates, Nicholas and Cullen, they do make some appearances that always liven up the story. It was also enjoyable to get to know Devon and Edie more in this story as well. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book that I highly suggest picking up even if not a fan of the first book.
