"Pick on me and that's between us.

Summary (From B.O.B): The heat is on down South!
Debutant season in Houston is under way,
and four ultraprivileged girls await their invitations from the
illustrious Glass Slipper Cub.
Laura Delacroix Bell: This trust-fund baby's size-fourteen figure doesn't stop her from attracting hot boys or the admiring eye of the GSC committee. But a salacious secret could take her out of the running quicker than you can say "Rosebud."
Michelle "Mac" Mackenzie: She'd rather bury her nose in a book than embrace her deb destiny. But Mac's debut is her late mother's dream and her stepmother's obsession If Mac doesn't bow out now, she may become the crankiest deb in Texas.
Ginger Fore: She hopes to wear her grandmother's vitage ball gown on her big presentation day. But when a mysterious college guy puts Ginger's deb eligibility in jeoprady, she may end up wearing an unflattering orange jumpsut instead.
Jo Lynn Bidwill: A former beauty queen, she makes it her mission in life to take out the debu-trash. For now, Jo Lynn's sights are set on Laura Bell, and what she has in store for her bitter rival is anything but ladylike.
Wdebo's Review: I read this book about a week ago, so, I'm very embarassed to say, I have forgoten some things, so I'll do my best with this review!!!
It was a cute story, but very predictable and cliche. It is a really, I hate to use this expression, but silly, how can anyone get into such a fuss about such silly incidents and stuff? But then again, if my life was written into a story it would sound silly to a lot of people.
I could really connect with Mac, she is a really smart "nerdy" girl. It was nice to read about someone like Mac and not having all of them flaunting around, where the only things they things they think about is sabatoge, getting to be debs, and guys. Also, Mac is very sharp and has good comebacks!
The cover is pretty pink and cute. I really like her dress!
All in all, if you are looking for a cute read and don't mind bitchy girls this is the book for you.
