Confessions of a Queen B* by Crista McHugh 
Publication date: July 28th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.

After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she’s carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.

Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.
Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.
Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.

But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now.


My Review:
I liked this book. Alexis is a very relate-able character. Betrayed by a friend she decides to start high school with a new persona. She starts a blog to exposes the wrong doing of those around her. She doesn't do it anonymously so she is known as the mean girl, the bitch of Eaastline High. She okay with it until she is paired up with star quarterback Brett.

Alexis has everyone in a box. However, Brett is more than what he seems. He is a closet geek. And for some reason interested in her. Is it genuine or is he setting her up? After all he's mighty close to Summer.

Brett was a sweetie and I was rooting for them throughout the book. I like the growth Alexis shows in this. The end was as satisfying as I wanted it to be but we can't always get and ending the way we want it. I'm hoping in book 2 Morgan will stop using her body to fill the void of a broken home. Richard was pretty steady so I'm expecting more of the same from him. And I'm hoping to find out about the progression of Alexis and Brett's relationship. All in all, great teen romance that is not sugary sweet.

About the Author:
Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista relied on story-telling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained.

She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and two children, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.

Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.

And she’s also a recovering LARPer. (She blames it on her crazy college days)
