Isabel is the girl who rules the school with an iron fist and a gang of minions who do her bidding. Her friends are scared of her, her teachers can't get through to her, and that's just the way she likes it. With her razor-sharp edges and tall walls, nothing gets to Isabel--and no one, but no one, is ever going to discover her dark, sad secrets. Then she meets Smith. And Isabel learns that sometimes when all the expectations and pressures are too much, you just need someone to help you get lost.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up–Isabel, 16, is not the warmest soul. She credits her place at the top of the school pecking order to her status as the biggest bitch to ever stalk the halls of the institution. She rules the roost at home, too; her father's attempts to set limits are met with sharp retorts and defiance. No one could ever guess how uncertain and frightened she feels. She has horrible nightmares on the few nights she is able to sleep and, more often than not, drinks to ease any doubts about her burgeoning relationship with a college student whom she met at a party. The teen's prickly nature and first-strike mentality are explained in part by the recent death of her mother; however, while readers may in fact know people like Isabel, she is not easy to relate to or even care about. Upon discovering her father's plans to send her away to school, she seeks solace in alcohol and in former enemies, and ends up narrowly avoiding tragedy. The resolution seems inevitable, yet is not completely satisfying. Veteran readers of Manning might be interested in the activities of Isabel's boyfriend, Smith, and his roommates, who are ex-members of the band The Hormones from the author's Guitar Girl (Dutton, 2004).–Amy S.
