At Penford High School, Britney Taylor is the queen bee. She dates whomever she likes, rules over her inner circle of friends like Genghis Khan, and can ruin anyone's life with a snap of perfectly manicured fingers. Just ask the unfortunate few who have crossed her. For April Bowers, Britney is also the answer to her prayers. April is so unpopular, kids don't even know she exists. But one lunch spent at Britney's table, and April is basking in the glow of popularity. But Britney's friendship comes with a high price tag. How much is April willing to pay?
Review:The Lipstick Laws is by far one the best book I have read this year so far. I devoured it in about 4 hours. It is entertaining and very funny. Ok more like Laugh Out Loud funny.
It follow April as she returns to school after the summer. Her best friend as moved away and she has no one else. So when paired up with Britney in gym class everything changes for April. She has a chance at being popular. However, being popular isn't has great as it seems and poor April quickly find out what it like to be on Britney bad side.
April is very funny from the start the book. She is very easy to connect with. As I think most people in there lifes at some point have been in that situation where you wanted to be popular. I honestly just love her. Britney is, ok well, she is quite simply a Bitch and wants to rule everyone around her. After we find out part of her past it still didn't make me feel for her at all because even though she had it tough it still doesn't excuse how she treats others. Britney even treats her "friends" like garbage.
The Lipstick Laws is a fantastic story, It very funny and fast paced. Its similiar to the movie Mean Girls (which I love) only this novel is on another level completely. I can't wait to read more of Amy Holder's work.
I recommend this to anyone who loves Chick-Lit novels that are lighthearted and fun.
