Kacey Simon is back to wearing contacts and she's finally
adjusted to her braces -- no more lisp! -- but while she looks like her old self, she's trying her best not to slip
into her former mean-girl queen-bee ways. That is, until Stevie moves to
town. Stevie is Zander's ex-girlfriend and former lead singer from Seattle.
She's got a great voice, awesome style, and she's climbing the social ladder faster than you can say "Simon Says." So not okay. With no
more thought to the lessons she learned during her stay in Loserville, Kacey
joins forces with her old friends to knock Stevie out of the spotlight, but it
soon becomes apparent that there's an even bigger problem -- Stevie's dad is
dating Kacey's mom!
Both girls are
horrified by the news, and, finally seeing eye-to-eye, they team up to sabotage their parents' relationship while fighting for their rightful places in the band and in the hierarchy of Marquette Middle School.
"Mostly reformed mean girl Kacey Simon returns in this preteen drama with a heart...Accessible, funny and ultimately safe: Kacey may make mistakes, but readers can trust that all will turn out right in the end."
"All of the characters are well developed and fun to follow in this fast-paced romantic comedy."
—School Library Journal
Meg Haston survived braces and glasses in middle school; whether she rocked them is debatable. She did go on to rock other things, including but not limited to slap bracelets, a B.S. in Communication Studies from Northwestern University, and an M.Ed. in Professional Counseling from the University of Georgia.
