Frenemies by Alexa Young

A few weeks ago I bought Frenemies, I had heard about it a lot and I thought "Why not voice my opinion on this book?" Well, here it is. Before I give you my opinion, here is the summary from the back of the book:

Avalon Greene Rules the fashion scene at her sunny SoCal middle school with a diamond-clad fist, giving props to classmates for their fashion-do's and calling them out for their most unfortunate clothes-pas. She's determined to host the social event of the season—a soiree in honor of her forever-friendship with Halley! Unfortunately, Halley's new look is one thing Avalon just can't celebrate.

Halley Brandon Just back from art camp, Halley can't wait to share her funky new style with her best friend, Avalon. But when Avalon cries fashion foul, Halley realizes her best friend's true colors may clash with her own. Has their ultra-fabulous friendship finally gone out of style?

From sharing custody of their puppy, Pucci, to drawing up a list of who gets which friends, Avalon and Halley discover what happens when you battle the person who knows everything about you—and isn't afraid to use your secrets to get what she wants.

I admit to having high hopes for this book because I had heard about it so much, but I also went into this book knowing what parts of it were about. I am not a big fan of books that include popularity and materialism, but, though this book has those things, I liked it. I'm not saying that it was the bes book I have ever read, but is was OK. I enjoyed Halley's life more than I did Avalon's, because Avalon seemed kind of rude and more obsessed with money that Halley did. I would recommend this book, but I wouldn't read it with high hopes. Who knows? It could be better than you thought it was gong to be.

Silence is silver, but Books are golden...

I enjoyed this one, also. I went into it knowing that the characters were younger than me, which I usually don't enjoy. However, I found that I really did enjoy it, and I can't wait for Faketastic. :]
