As incoming Head Hottie of the exclusive clique called the Hot Spot, Gigi Lane knows it is her responsibility to see that the ducklings at Swan's Lake Country Day school fall into line. But when one classmate exposes her as a "mean girl," Gigi slowly and wretchedly falls to the bottom of the high school social ravine. Gigi's first-person account of her plummet from popularity is insightful yet naive, set in a humorous, satiric world.

Okay, there were a few funny things in the book, but I can't say I liked it at all. I found the narrator (Gigi Lane) WAY overconfident (if not arrogant) and mean. She did try to be nicer by the end, but I can't say I liked the character at all. She reflected a very unpleasant personnality that a popular girl could have if she doesn't know where her place is. Maybe for superficial people, who only care about themselves, the book would be enjoyable.
I rarelly dislike books but this was a huge disapointement. Maybe if the narrator would have been nicer I could have liked the book.
Briefly, I don't reccomend this book... unless you have time to kill and you feel like reading a lot.

this book is completely outrageous! something like this would never happen to anyone! (well, i should hope not). i mean, send someone you don't like to Alaska?! once you get past all the craziness though, it is pretty funny.

Gigi is threatened by "The hot Spot". She attempts to be popular again, whishing she were in the Hot Spot again. Then, she figures out the is NO Hot Spot. Is it true, that she has been lied all this time, or is it just a rumour? Will Gigi be popular and at the top again?
