At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…
Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.
Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.
Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.
The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.
A cute story, though it does stretch the boundaries of credibility a few times:)
Andy, Kevin, Keelie, and Harper are all fun characters, and easy to root for even when you’re questioning the choices they (okay, mostly Andy) are making. The live action role playing aspects were fun, and almost made me want to try it myself. I really liked how the author used both larp and Andy’s other talents to help her create a path to her own HEA; it was a nice touch.
My first book from Ms.Griffin; I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more from her in the future!
