Dorks, Dweebs, Debutantes, and Jocks—Where would you fit in?

Being the new girl is tough—just ask sixteen-year-old Rio Jones. A New York transplant, Rio has no clue how she's going to fit in at her fancy new private school in Southern California. Plus, being late, overdressed, and named after a Duran Duran song doesn't make the first day any easier for her.

Then Rio meets Kristi. Beautiful, rich, and a cheerleader, Kristi is the queen bee of Newport Beach. And Kristi isn't friends with just anyone, so Rio is thrilled when she's invited to be part of the most exclusive, popular clique. Of course, like any club, Kristi and her friends have rules: Always smile (even if you don't mean it), always dress cute (and never repeat outfits), and always flirt (but only with jocks, preps, and rich college guys).

At first Rio is having a great time, but as she becomes more immersed in this jet-set crowd, she figures out there is one last rule that her new friends forgot to mention: Don't cross Kristi . . . in Alyson Noël's Art Geeks and Prom Queens.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna | 2/20/2014

    " Alyson Noel really brought out the emotion in the characters. As I was reading it, I definitely felt like I was the main character. I would take a break from reading and come back to reality and find myself feeling exactly as the main character did and felt like I was living her life. It took awhile to realize that nothing was wrong and I managed to separate reality from fiction. "

    " This book was ok, it annoyed me half way through and sometimes I almost wanted to put it down. However I persisted through it and finally got to the end. I did however enjoy the ending and the beginning. It was alright. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nilay | 2/11/2014

    " This book was a good, quick read about a girl named Rio who moves from New York to California. Rio automatically becomes friends with the popular girls who pressure into drinking, and experimenting with drugs. But later, she realizes that the popular girls aren't good friends to begin with but Rio doesn't know what to do since she had ditched her other friends to be popular in the beginning. "

    " Reminded me of the movie Mean Girls. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 GW | 1/14/2014

    " So realistic and true. It's a predictable plot line, but it's such an enjoyable read! Rio's just trying to fit in, but she gets sucked into the popular party with this manipulative person, Kristi. Will Rio get peer pressured into things? Or what? And what about, Jas? The person who was nice to her in the beginning before she got included with the popular people. Will people stand up to Kristi? Hmm. "

    " I liked it for the reality it portrayed...because let's face it...that's what it's like these days in a lot of High Schools...drugs, sex, and false friendships...but it's not something I really enjoy reading about and though I liked it...i would ever want to read it again. She does good work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddy | 1/28/2012

    " There was a lot of drugs and alcohol and such in this book as well as swearing quite often. I thought it was pretty good (Alyson Noel has a great writing style) but it just wasn't a book for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 7/29/2011

    it was fun to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 7/1/2011

    " A quick read to pick up when you're feeling like high school drama. It was easy to get through because everything was conversational. Rio's thoughts are revealed to the reader making it more emotional. The events are predictable just like any other teen novel, but still an ok read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 4/26/2011

    " This book reads a whole lot like Mean Girls, but without the part where the ending gets extra-ridiculous. A solid read with all the right embarrassing and good moments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 12/26/2007

    " I didn't finish this book. When I got towards the end, the cursing was too much for me. Not really too much for me, but I didn't really like the book that much to begin with so when I got to the dark, everyone is against me part, I just thought, Why force myself to continue? So I didn't. "
