Hazel Stone wants nothing more than to be a part of the hottest clique in school, the Pretty Little Devils, but she's stuck at a lunch table full of high school C-listers. Hazel has resigned herself to life as a nobody--when suddenly everything changes. The PLDs invite Hazel to one of the group's famous parties, held at the site of one of their babysitting jobs. Before Hazel knows it, she's in with the in crowd--and she couldn't be more thrilled!

But nothing turns out the way she expects. Especially when one her classmates becomes jealous of her newfound status--deadly jealous.

Author Nancy Holder weaves a wicked tale about the price of popularity, and having the kind of friends some girls would just die for.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 9-12. Teens who think this is just a chick-lit book will find more than they bargained for. Hazel has looked longingly in the direction of the popular four-girl clique the Pretty Little Devils, but she is amazed when the group's leader, Sylvia, beckons her into the inner circle. Hazel quickly learns that things look different from the inside, where Sylvia rules with both carrots and sticks, even when it comes to the girls' love lives. Some of the narrative is in the form of chat-room discussion and text messaging, but it's the personal blog of Happy2BMe that alerts readers that someone is getting pretty angry about the goings-on of the popular set--that and the fact that first animals, then people, start showing up brutally murdered. Holder infuses some of the terror of horror movies (which play a role in the story) into this page-turner while capturing the capriciousness and cruelty of teenage life. The murderer's identity, revealed on the last page, doesn't really square with who's been murdered and how, but the book delivers anyway. A stylish cover (black legs and a devil's tail against a pure red background) entices. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2006 Booklist"
