Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch. After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she's carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways. Saving a freshman from bullies? Check. Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check. Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan. But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now.


I really like the concept of the Queen Bitch. I thought Alexis was going to be an annoying brat who always wants to get her way but I see she actually uses her powers for good sometimes. She has a blog where she exposes the bad people, which I think is great. I also think she could also use her blog to highlight the good. She is a bit pessimistic at times. That was the only thing I didn't like about her. I liked that she could stand up on her own, inside her own shell. Her comments are hilarious and I laughed out loud several times during this book.

Brett was... how can I even begin to describe him? At first glance, he is a typical, dumb jock with a typical, dumb cheerleader girlfriend but if you delve deeper, you can see that he is actually pretty smart and likes to earn his grades and approval. He's not just some golden football guy, but an actual person. I love his family dynamic with all his little sisters. Just proves he can be really caring.

Taylor (Alexis's sister) was a brat. All she cares about is guys and makeup and hairdos and she's not the brightest bulb in the box. She acts like such a Beauty Queen. I mean, eyeliner emergency? Seriously? *rolls eyes* *facepalms thousand times* 

We didn't really get to see much of Summer before she became a bitch but now, I can definitely see why Alexis hates her.  But maybe there is much more to her. You never know.

I really hate Alexis's dad. I mean, his solution to every single problem is the same, inappropriate answer. Can I remind you that you're a father? You're supposed to be setting a good example! The mom was okay, but not very motherly in my opinion.

I really liked the friendship between Alexis, Morgan and Richard Wang. I liked the LGBT elements in this book and Richard was probably my favourite character in this book. He was all "honey" and "sweet" and "darling" and for some reason, it just made me laugh! I think Morgan was a tad annoying though.  I also like Richard because he said something like this:
"Honey, if i wanted to torture you, I'd go all Justin Bieber on you."
I'm all for using Justin Bieber as a torture reference :D :D :D

Overall, this was a great, quick, fun read and I cannot wait until this book comes out and for all of you can read it. I also need that second book, ASAP! I recommend that you all check this one out. It'll barely take up a couple hours of your time!Thank you again, Crista McHugh, for sending me an E-Arc via Netgalley.
