The Queen B*, Alexis Wyndham, has only three rules when it comes to dating the star quarterback, Brett Pederson:
1. No obligations to spend every waking moment with each other.
2. No public displays of affection while at Eastline High.
3. And absolutely, under no circumstances, will she ever go to the Homecoming dance.
But as her life is completely upended time and time again, she begins to wonder if some rules are meant to be broken.
I regret waiting until now to read this book (or series). The Queen B* totally blows me off with its amazingly humorous and sassy story. I like it so much, partly because the I’ve grown in love with all the characters in this book. Their own personalities and developments are incredible, with many amusing problems that everyone has to to face in high school, the place where the most dramatic thing can happen.
Alexis Wyndham has definitely grown a great length in this 3rd book. That doesn’t change her witty personality and her status of Queen B*, The Meanest Girl in Eastline High. I love her, mostly because her “bitchiness” is actually a wonderful combo of sassy sarcasm and desire for justice.
Although this is a funny story of high school life, the depth behind the advice others characters give Alexis in her indecisive moments are beautifully written. I also love how Alexis and Brett—the star quarterback—and their relationship has grown in such a lovely way. All of their toe-curling moments just make my heart melt.
This is a very light-hearted and loveable read that you don’t want to miss. Crista McHugh has created an excellent book. I wholeheartedly enjoy it!
“For all his virtues, Brett was still a seventeen-year- old guy. Or, as he’d once put it, a guy with two heads but only enough blood to operate one at a time.”
