Calista and Patrick are the most popular kids in the school and most good looking. Calista gets a pimple a few days before a school dance and tries to cover it with concealer, but she breaks out in a rash because she is allergic to her mom’s concealer. Suddenly people stop talking to her because she “isn’t pretty anymore”. Laura and Damian, a few losers, pay attention to her and they become friends.

I personally enjoyed this book. It was very realistic situations. The plot was clear and very credible. Everything that happens in this book could really happen and I’m sure has happened to someone. Setting is extremely believable. It was a really good book overall. I would read a series of this book, and recommend it.
