Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Miller is about to start her sophomore year at the famed Whitbread School for Girls. She's never really fit in amongst the glamorous children of Hollywood's elite-she's always been on the side of "smart" in the "smart vs. pretty" world of Whitbread‚ but she's ready for this to be the Best Year Ever‚ until she learns she's in for the Worst Year Imaginable: her best friend is moving away‚ her parents are getting divorced‚ and her therapist is AWOL.
On the plus side‚ she just became a blonde.
With everything she thought she knew feeling like an illusion to her‚ Becky decides to take matters into her own hands‚ with going blonde the first step on her road to New Becky‚ a step that will grant her access to the Pretty world of Whitbread. But once Becky's in with the In Crowd‚ will she be able to check her brain at the door?
