Rose Whitfield's senior year was supposed to be about leading her cheerleading squad to nationals, getting into Harvard, and going all the way with her True Love, Ryan Appleton. But when the Appleton family yacht is set on fire and the evidence points overwhelmingly to Rose, not even Ryan believes in her innocence. Faster than her squad can shout, "Go Panthers," Rose's perfect world goes up in smoke.

Rose knows exactly who's framing her: Paxton Callaway. Once Rose's best friend, Paxton turned on her in middle school when her vault to popularity outstripped his. He's since caught up, but their unburied hatchet has led to a string of escalating pranks. Sure the arson charge is just the latest attack, Rose sets out to prove her innocence, win Ryan back, and take Paxton down hard. Not necessarily in that order.

Why can't I wait?
Simultaneously funny and dark-- that's my favorite!  I've read the first chapter (up on Andrea's website), and it ends on such a mysterious note.  I can't wait to take the journey with Rose as she attempts to prove her innocence and kick Paxton's scheming butt.

  1. After reading Burn For Burn, I'm starting to really love scheming type books. But my hopes are gonna be high since I normally don't go for 'light and fun' reads.
    Great pick! :)
