DescriptionThe fourth book in our first Candy Apple mini-series from New York Times-bestselling author Lisa Papademetriou! Seventh grader Amy Flowers is at it again in her fourth fish-out-of-water adventure at super-snooty Allington Academy. It's always hard to meet people at a new school, but it's even tougher at Allington because the Queen of Mean, Fiona Von Steig, rules the roost with the League, the most popular and fabulous girls in the class. Amy's already proven she can be fabulous (accidentally, of course)--but can she finally find true friends?

It's the last week of school at Allington Academy, and everything seems to be going insane for Crazy Week.
Amy Flowers has officially given up on trying to patch things up with Queen of Mean Fiona after a recent misunderstanding drew the girls even further apart, right when it had seemed they were becoming friends. Meanwhile, Amy's friend, Jenelle, suspects that her boyfriend, Anderson, might be breaking up with her, since he's spending so much time with Kiwi, and Michiko still won't admit to Amy that she has a crush on Amy's older brother, even though all the signs are there.
Fiona, on the other hand, seems to be losing her place in "The League" of popular girls to Lucia, her old second-in-command whose prank drove the wedge between Amy and Fiona, and Amy doesn't know if she should feel sorry for Fiona or pleased that she is finally getting what she deserves.
Amidst all this, Preston keeps pestering Amy about joining the committee for planning the seventh grade prank, and Amy is hesitant to do so. However, she realizes that Preston does not seem nearly as annoying as he used to, and she doesn't know how she should feel about that, either. While her crush, the eighth grader Scott, keeps giving her mixed signals, Amy wishes that, for once, boys and girls could just be honest with each other and clearly let others know how they feel. But her genuine wish could spell disaster for her friendships, all of which seem to be teetering on the brink of madness. It's anyone's guess how this Crazy Week will end, but it's obvious that nothing will ever be the same again once the school year is over.
A fine end to a fine series, one can appreciate Amy's level-headed approach to relationships, as well as her struggle to navigate her way through this emotional end of the year for the seventh graders of Allington Academy. by TeensReadToo
