Dorks, Dweebs, Debutantes, and Jocks--Where would you fit in? Being the new girl is tough--just ask sixteen-year-old Rio Jones. A New York transplant, Rio has no clue how she's going to fit in at her fancy new private school in Southern California. Plus, being late, overdressed, and named after a Duran Duran song doesn't make the first day any easier for her. Then Rio meets Kristi. Beautiful, rich, and a cheerleader, Kristi is the queen bee of Newport Beach. And Kristi isn't friends with just anyone, so Rio is thrilled when she's invited to be part of the most exclusive, popular clique. Of course, like any club, Kristi and her friends have rules: Always smile (even if you don't mean it), always dress cute (and never repeat outfits), and always flirt (but only with jocks, preps, and rich college guys). At first Rio is having a great time, but as she becomes more immersed in this jet-set crowd, she figures out there is one last rule that her new friends forgot to mention: Don't cross Kristi . . . in Alyson Noël's Art Geeks and Prom Queens.

Review quote

"Get ready for a wild ride with Rio Jones. And, hang on because you're going to love every minute of it!" --J. Minter, author of The Insiders "Cool, uncompromising, superbly written - this is a wonderful journey through teenage life by a writer who really gets it." --Kevin Brooks, author of Martyn Pig, Lucas, Kissing the Rain, and Candy "I love Alyson's use of dialogue. It's acerbic and vicious and bitchy. Totally realistic, in other words, without a false note." --Catherine Forde, author of Fat Boy Swim "Rio steps into the glitz and glam of Southern California socialites, but she never loses her down to earth sense of humor." --Michelle Taylor, author of What's Happily Ever After, Anyway? "A book about life in the fast lane. . ." --Lurlene McDaniel, author of My Secret Boyfriend and Angels in Pink "Delicious, irresistible fun. All that's lacking is a pool-side chair and a cold drink." --Deb Caletti, author of Honey, Baby, Sweetheart

Our customer reviews

Rio Jones is the new girl at her school. As if that isn\'t hard enough, her mom is an ex almost-model and expects her daughter to be pretty and popular, and she\'s named after a Duran Duran song. Except that she is an art geek. On her first day, she meets kids from her art class that take her off campus for lunch (which isn\'t allowed). And she gets detention for it, so her mom tells her that she can\'t hang out with them anymore. Rio is a geek, until she meets Kristi. Kristi is a rich, beautiful, popular cheerleader. She and Rio become friends and in Kristi\'s group there are rules. You always have to smile even if you don\'t mean it and be nice to everyone. Kristi is the only one in the group who thinks that the rules don\'t apply to her because she\'s Kristi. Soon Rio becomes even more popular than Kristi is and, of course, Kristi is jealous. Not that she would ever tell anyone that. But there is one rule that her friends left out -- don\'t cross paths with Kristi. Rio\'s life soon goes back to worse than it was before she met Kristi, since even her art friends won\'t talk to her. I am obsessed with this author! She is SO funny and all of her books are so realistic! As expected, another must-read from Alyson Noel!show more
