They call me 'New Girl'...
Ever since I arrived at exclusive, prestigious Manderly Academy, that’s who I am. New girl. Unknown. But not unnoticed—because of her.
Becca Normandy—that’s the name on everyone’s lips. The girl whose picture I see everywhere. The girl
I can’t compare to. I mean, her going missing is the only reason a spot opened up for me at the academy.
And everyone stares at me like it’s my fault.
Except for Max Holloway—the boy whose name shouldn’t be spoken. At least, not by me. Everyone thinks of him as Becca’s boyfriend…but she’s gone, and here I am, replacing her. I wish it were that easy. Sometimes, when I think of Max, I can imagine how Becca’s life was so much better than mine could ever be.
And maybe she’s still out there, waiting to take it back.
*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
The first ebook I actually managed to read! I started reading this yesterday and was still sitting on computer after 6 hours. Now I have aching back, but it was worth it!
This story follows the "New Girl", who moves to boarding school. I was halfway through the book, when I realized, that I still don't know the new girls name. She's just the second new girl, since Becca was the first new girl. And now everyone's comparing them and idolizing Becca.
Obviously, there was a lot of secrets, since there's young people in a boarding school, and that was the intriguing thing that kept me reading until it was three hours past my bedtime. Plus the fact that I haven't actually read anything exactly like this book, which is of course great!
I'm going to keep it short, since the best part of this was the waiting for the secrets to be revealed, and I don't want to spoil anything! So I could sum it up like this: I liked the romance, nothing too.. yucky. I didn't like Becca, big surprise there. There were few details that never got explanation, which bothers me little. But I can live with that.
Overall, I definitely want this to my bookshelf!
