Gr 9 Up-During the last six weeks of her senior year, Kate Winthrop finds out she is number 71. She doesn't know what that means until she receives a mysterious instant message that sends her to a Web site, where she finds that it is her ranking (out of 140) in the Millbank Social Stock Market, an underground market allowing insiders to buy and sell investments in Millbank High's female seniors. After freaking out, she tells her friends about the scheme and decides to revamp herself. The girls plan to buy into the market for $500 and then win the $25,000 year-end pool by raising Kate's status from junk bond to blue chip. During her transformation, she almost loses her friends, becomes entangled in a love triangle, and learns that being popular isn't all it's cracked up to be. While Kate has the same thoughts that haunt other teens (and engages in the same underage drinking like many of them) this isn't just another makeover novel. After her revamping, Kate decides that she doesn't want to be in the popular crowd after all. Teens who like Sixteen Candles and Can't Buy Me Love (which Kate watches) will dig this book.-Shannon Seglin, Patrick Henry Library, Vienna, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
