Wdebo's Review: I liked this book a LOT! It was cute and sweet and adressed a lot of points we teenagers have to face. It also had really funny observations about what teenage life REALLY is about. It really showed what it ment to be "Real" and "popular/unpopular". It was sweet and touching and the character of Maggie really speaks to you you feel her pain and laugh along with her awakwardness of going from popular to unpopular. You cheer her on to do the right thing even if she goes the toally opposite way you want her to conquer it, so you clamp your hands together praying she comes out strong! I was quite satisfied with the ending, because it is hard ending a good chick lit/realistic fiction book. It was cliche, but like I say in all my other posts, that's why I like these books! :P Well all in all I would reccomended this book to all my friends 9/10
