Fans of Meg Cabot will find Marni's voice equally charming and endearing. --Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author

I take no prisoners. . .

I'm Chelsea Halloway and I will happily destroy your social life if you mess with me. Just ask anyone. There is no situation I can't handle. Divorcing parents? No problem. An ex-boyfriend who wants to date Smith High School's biggest geek instead of me? Just a matter of time before I can make him see reason. At least, until my parents decide to ship me off on a study abroad trip to Cambodia. . .

Now instead of being admired as the queen of the Notables, I'm stuck with a bunch of college students who don't take me seriously, and a professor who accidentally landed himself on the wrong side of a drug lord. And it's up to me to get us all out of the country alive--even the annoying jerk with the green eyes who won't stop calling me "princess."

Oh yeah, what could possibly go wrong?

Baker & Taylor
Chelsea Halloway is the most popular girl at Smith High School, but when her ex-boyfriend rejects her and her parents decide it's best for her to study overseas while they finalize the details of their divorce, Chelsea is sent off to Cambodia and faces the challenges of a lifetime. By the author of Awkward. Original.

Marni Bates books are the kind of books that you keep coming back to time after time, even though you have no idea why. I've commented about this on all of her books; she exaggerates. A lot. I don't think any popular girl would actually think some of the things that Chelsea thinks; it's just way too stereotypical. And yet, I enjoyed the book anyway. The story was fun, and any teenage girl would be into it. I know I'll be coming back for more Marni, exaggerations and stereotypes aside.
