I'm Lucy Peterson, and let me tell you—I don't fit in at my new boarding school in Switzerland at all. Caviar at every meal, white-tie affairs (because black-tie is so last season), trips to Geneva to pick up the latest couture, and real live royals lurking around every corner? None of that is really my speed. I'm just your average American teen, here on scholarship, ready to kick some academic and tennis butt so I can have my pick of Ivy League colleges.
Only now I'm falling all over myself to impress my crush, who just happens to be a prince, I've gotten myself tangled up in a tabloid disaster—literally—and the "It" clique on campus has decided that I am worthy of their evil scorn. What have I gotten myself into?

Grade 8–11—An Army brat with a great tennis arm, Lucy Peterson is tired of her family's constant moving around and wants to settle at a school and make some long-term friends. She is accepted as a scholarship student at the Van Pelt Academy in Switzerland, a prestigious institution for the children of royalty, corporate magnates, rock stars, and the general elite. However, as she begins 10th grade, she worries that she won't fit in with her über-wealthy classmates. This story abounds with the trappings of teen novels: new friends, mean girls, crushes, confusing relationships, backstabbing, and more. Current stars, trends, designers, etc., are name-dropped throughout the book to showcase the extreme affluence of the student body and to contrast Lucy's situation and feelings of displacement. Lucy is a likable, if not always sympathetic, character. She and her supporting cast are never wholly developed, and some of her decisions seem very shallow. Still, this breezy novel is a fun read that will be popular with teen girls.—Heather E. Miller, Homewood Public Library, AL
