But when you're Aspen Brooks and you lose the title of Homecoming Queen to the school's brattiest girl, Angel Ives, that _is_ an absolute horror. Aspen is also shocked when the Homecoming King's crown is placed on the head of a geeky boy named Rand. Sooner than she can blink her pretty eyelashes, everything has changed. Aspen's boyfriend breaks up with her, Rand gets a makeover, and girls from her class start disappearing.
Homecoming candidate one moment, quasi-detective the next -- who died and made _her_ Nancy Drew? Determined to get to the bottom of things - and get that crown! - Aspen starts to investigate the recent disappearances with Rand's help. Will the missing girls be found? Will Rand continue to climb the social ladder? Will Aspen ever get crowned? You've got to read the book to find out!
Due to romantic content and language, this book is rated PG-13 and best for those in high school.
Meet Aspen Brooks. The girl you love to hate; or, possibly, might hate to love. She has it all - popular, hottie boyfriend, fashionable clothing, a car. (Note to readers: How can you not love/hate a beautiful teen girl with a car??)
Only there's one small, teeny-tiny problem. The Homecoming crown (fine, tiara, what's the difference?) is not sitting on her pretty blonde head. No, instead that glorious moment of uber-popularity went to Angel Ives. Angel. Ives. Obnoxious cheerleader, vengeful rival. And, oh horror of even greater horrors, the Homecoming King is none other than Rand Bachrach. Can anyone spell g-e-e-k?
Aspen is horrified, but she's also in shock. Really, how could she not be Homecoming Queen? This has only been her dream - her goal! - since she was in kindergarten! What kind of conspiracy is behind setting up a nasty girl like Angel with a dork like Rand as the rulers of the Homecoming court?
She's not sure, but she does know that something isn't right. First of all, a lot of really weird things are happening around school, and they don't all have something to do with the Homecoming debacle. And, wonder of wonders, Rand might not actually be the weirdo dweeb Aspen originally suspected. As Aspen puts on her Nancy Drew detective costume (which is so last year, by the way) and ropes Rand in as her assistant, the two are determined to find out just what exactly is behind all the nefarious goings-on at Comfort High.
Ms. Hale has penned a laugh-out-loud, catty winner with REVENGE OF THE HOMECOMING QUEEN. Part frou-frou couture mixed with amateur sleuthing, this book is one guilty pleasure that you won't mind indulging in.

I don't read much YA unless it is of The Hunger Games ilk, but since it was a free download and looked cute, I decided to give it a try. I'm really glad I did as it was adorable. At the beginning of the story, Aspen was unbelievably conceited but she was hilarious and I couldn't help but love her. I solved the mystery about half-way through but it was fun reading as it unfolded. I loved Aspen's relationship with her mom and the love story was very cute. I enjoyed watching Aspen develop into a less shallow person. I would say my only issue with this book was Aspen's obvious sexual experience level. I'm not a prude but the thought of high school kids being so sexually active to the point that they've had numerous sexual partners and talk about it like it's a sport rather than an intimate act by the time they are 17 just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.Read more ›

I didn't think I was going to like this book initally. The beginning seemed a little juvenile at first but I kept reading, and I'm glad I did! It turned into a very good book. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Regina Meeks
This story works because the heroine grows and learns from her experiences. The one I felt sorry for was Amy. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
This story isn't quite what you would expect. Not too shallow. I would put it in young adult. Bit of a mystery, reasonably clean, romance.Published 7 months ago by M. Anderson
