Feeling Sorry for the Mean Girl

"I'm Gigi Lane, and you wish you were me."

Sounds like a humble and modest young lady, doesn't she? That's Gigi Lane, the star and title character of Adrienne Maria Vrettos's The Exile of Gigi Lane. She's poised to become the social queen of Swan's Lake Country Day School. But then her nastiness gets her knocked off the top of the pyramid. She has to find a new clique to join, or spend the rest of high school floating around the edges with nobody to belong to.

Unfortunately, every clique she tries contains people that remember her nasty treatment, and it's starting to look like she's doomed to the shadows forever. To save herself from a fate worse than death, Gigi has to remake herself: not as a Glossy, a Cheerleader, a Do-Good or an Art Star . . . but as a completely new Gigi Lane. And she has to do it fast, because the girls that took her place at the top of the heap are victimizing underclassmen and making a mockery of cherished school traditions.

Ruin her school? Nuh-uh, not if Gigi Lane has anything to say about it.

Hilarious, sweet, just a little over the top . . . that describes both Gigi Lane and this book to a T.
