I don’t remember the ending of the book, but by the end o I read this book a couple of years ago as Disney made a movie out of it, and if a book has been made into a movie, I like to try and read the book first.

She and Ella journey to Manhattan to buy tickets to the show. Who were her closest friends? These men were worried. The movie of the same name is also entertaining but a lot of the subtlety of the book is lost in the adaption. In order to become Queen Bee she must contend with Carla Santini, the school’s most popular girl, who has no intention of vacating her place in school society.
