When Tallulah moves from Florida to California, all she wants is to fit in. So when the most popular girl in school asks if she surfs, a little lie kind of slips out. A lie that snowballs into a huge mess. When Tallulah is exposed as a surfing newbie, the whole school labels her a poser. The student body seems to be united in making her miserable. So Tallulah is forced to take drastic measures...
It was cute. A little shallow for my tastes, but enjoyable.
I loved the concept of this plot. A character gets herself into trouble and then gets herself out. I'm a little bored with characters thrown into situations they have no control over, and characters that have their problems solved by somebody/something else. No, Tallulah makes her own mess and then works her butt off to clean it up. It's a nice message and a nice change of pace from most YA novels.
That aside, it was interesting, a little predictable towards the end, but interesting overall.
They were just a little overdone. Jenna is a little too stereotypical blonde insecure mean girl, Katie is just a little too weird, Coco is just a little too evil, and Corey is just a little too perfect. Unfortunately they come off as pretty cliche.
It would've got four stars, but it was a little casual valley-girl and I guess I prefer my writing a little more formal.
End Result: three stars. A decent book, but not amazingly excellent.
