Description

The higher you aim, the farther you fall....

It's Violet's junior year at the Westfield School. She thought she'd be focusing on getting straight As, editing the lit mag, and figuring out how to talk to boys without choking on her own saliva. Instead, she's just trying to hold it together in the face of cutthroat academics, her crush's new girlfriend, and the sense that things are going irreversibly wrong with her best friend, Katie.

When Katie starts making choices that Violet can't even begin to fathom, Violet has no idea how to set things right between them. Westfield girls are trained for success--but how can Violet keep her junior year from being one huge epic failure?

Reviews

"Written as a series of notably short chapters, the names of which provide a fair amount of punch on their own ("Sophistry in Spanish class")....["Mostly Good Girls" is] overall an enjoyable, light read."

"--Kirkus"
"Private-school culture functions only as a backdrop here; Sales focuses her debut ["Mostly Good Girls"] on the dynamics between Violet and Katie, and the friendship story is refreshingly free of confrontational cliques and catty female stereotypes, while short, snappy chapters keep the story moving.... Recommend this to fans of Meg Cabot's novels and academy-based stories." --"Booklist"
"Sales conveys the dynamics of the girls' friendship with honesty and a light touch." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Brilliant, poignant, and straight-up hilarious. Leila Sales is a fresh and fabulous new voice in YA."

--Lauren Oliver, bestselling author of "Before I Fall"
*"Witty and unpretentious, Violet is a likable narrator. Suggest this one to readers who enjoy the writing style of Ally Carter. A strong debut that is not be missed."""
