 Five girls, who had once ruled Octavian Country Day School, were now complete losers. Their all girls' school had completely changed when the boys from Briarwood Academy were allowed in the school due to an unexpected flooding at their school. Massie, Alicia, Claire, Kristen, and Dylan are the only girls that aren't head-over-heels for the guys. They're all ordered, by Massie, to go on a boy-fast. No crushing or even talking to boys. This is ruining their alpha status though because all of the girls worship the guys. To make matters worse, Massie, Claire, Dylan, Kristen, and all of the LBRs (losers beyond repair) are forced into overflow trailers because there's not enough room in the classrooms. What about Alicia? Massie fears that she is losing Alicia's loyalty. She thinks that Alicia might be breaking the boy-fast. Why has Alicia been wearing a baseball hat? She never wears anything on her head, especially not anything that would mess up her hair. Could she be sneaking around with a guy behind Massie's back? Massie needs to get her friends and alpha status back, and get the boys out. But can she do it before it's too late? I would give this realistic fiction book five stars. For any eighth grade girl who's interested in an eighth grade girl survival story, Bratfest at Tiffany's by Lisi Harrison is for you! (Kendall, student)
