Revenge of the Homecoming Queen by Stephanie Hale


Aspen Brooks has a perfect life and she knows it. Glamorous, smart, and popular, she knows that she has the Homecoming Queen tiara in the bag. But then nothing goes as planned. Uber-geek Rand Bachrach is voted king, instead of Aspen's hot boyfriend, and her arch nemesis Angel Ives is queen! And then Angel has the audacity to be furious with Aspen! She even goes as far as stealing, stuffing Aspen's locker with porn, and slashing her tires. Add to it Rand's pathetic attempts at winning Aspen over, and she is ready to kill. But things turn sinister quickly when Angel disappears, along with others, and Aspen takes it upon herself to get down to the bottom of things.

Revenge of the Homecoming Queen is unlike any teen lit novel out there today. Aspen is the character that average girls love to hate, but yet her frank voice and unflinching honesty make it impossible to do so. Hale's engaging and realistic writing will hook readers looking for a perfect guilty pleasure book and the need for a straightforward protagonist to tell them like it is. Revenge of the Homecoming Queen is ideal for those style loving older teens who want a little action and adventure in their beach read.

Loved that line! I can't wait to read this book. I got an ARC of Twisted Sisters, but I have to read Revenge first. I hate reading books out of order. :)

Great review!
