Skylar Hoffman’s LA party girl reputation precedes her at her preppy East Coast boarding school. Now it’s her senior year and she’s set to rule. But right before the semester starts, she’s told that she’s out of Lincoln—the best girls’ dorm on campus where she’s lived since freshman year. Even worse, she’s stuck in Abbot House, a tiny dorm known for, well, nothing. When it turns out that Skylar’s supposed best friend, Whitney, had her booted, an all-out war is waged.
But Skylar hasn’t been totally honest about her life back in Los Angeles. Skylar’s mom was a producer on Over It—probably the most popular teen movie of the past decade—and Skylar has milked that one credit for all it’s worth. But that was five years ago, and her mom hasn’t had a hit movie since. So while everyone thinks she spent her summer laying out at her swanky beach club, reading scripts for her mom, she was really waiting tables.
When the truth comes out in the crossfire, she’s forced to stand up for who she really is. In the process, she discovers that her new dorm-mates aren’t as lame as everyone thinks. In getting to know the Abbot girls, Skylar realizes that she has more to offer than just a shiny, made-up image. But even if she manages to best Whitney and the catty girls of Lincoln, her real challenge will be convincing her amazing boyfriend, Leo, that she deserves his trust again.
