KIRKUS REVIEWS called this winning tale of a queen-sized queen bee "Hilarious and fresh."

Manhattan It Girl Riley Swain is no pudgy wallflower. She's brash, bold, fashionable, and yes, fabulous. Riley has no qualms about kissing her best friend's crush, or bribing her dad's lawyer. But this spring break, Riley's dad and wicked stepmother are shipping her off to New Horizons, a two-week fat camp in upstate New York. And it's miserable: like military school without carbs. But then Riley gets to know adorable Eric, who sees beyond Riley's tough exterior. Soon, Riley might just realize that maybe it's not her shape that will change at New Horizons. . . but her heart.

From a wealthy, snarky social scene to a fat camp resembling "a foreign country filled with geeks," 16-year-old Riley's narration is hilarious and fresh.
