Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook

Popularity is the best revenge. In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend. But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren—starting with her boyfriend. Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.

This book was really sweet. It also kept me reading. I finished reading this at about midnight, on a school night. Though, it isn't my favorite book, it was pretty awesome. First of all, that is an epic cover, I love it. This book was really funny! In the beginning, I didn't like how she wanted revenge, but over time, I grew to love it. Helen's anger made the book amusing to read!
This is a quick read, that is still incredibly funny. I recommend it!
