My Feelings:

Popularity is the best revenge.

In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend.

But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren—starting with her boyfriend.

Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.

My Review:
OMG, Getting Revenge On Lauren Wood is the best light hearted book I read so far this year.

Helen is a great character that just needed to learn that revenge isn’t everything.
She really believed that what she was doing was the right thing and that she was helping other girls who got hurt by Lauren too. I didn’t like Lauren at all. She is spiteful, rude and inconsiderate. And therefore I really wanted to see how she would fall of her pedestal. One thing about being on top of the world is that it gives you a long way to fall and yes, I was waiting for that fall to come.

The plot is just fun. It reminded me a lot of the movie Mean Girls. There’s still a bit of romance in, which is unexpected, but so much fun. The things Helen do to get revenge on Lauren was hilarious.

Because I loved Getting Revenge On Lauren Wood, I’m planning to read the debut novel of Eileen Cook “What Would Emma do?”. Getting Revenge On Lauren Wood is a book you should get!
