Elise and her sisters are different than everyone at that school. They don't agree with the lifestyle of the other people. However, Elise's sister begins to like a popular boy named Chase. When they begin dating, Elise begins hanging out with the out of control kids from the school.

Elise is reluctant to hang out with them but does anyway because she realizes it's better than being alone. She finds out that it's not enjoyable, because Chase's friend Derek is very mean to her.

She realizes that there is no point to being friends with Derek, so she befriends his enemy Webster. Elise will find out that by taking sides she will either succeed or suffer an epic fail.
Best part of story, including ending: This story was cool because the girl did not go for the guy that all the other girls liked. She went for his enemy and that made this story interesting.

Best scene in story: The best part was when she first witnesses the kids at the school. This was cool because it was interesting to see her reaction to the children of celebrities.

Opinion about the main character: What I liked most about Elise is that she did not like to follow the crowd. She made her own decisions and chose a unique path.
