House of Cards meets Election in this wickedly entertaining story about an uber-ambitious high school junior.

Whoever said being nice would get you to the top?

Certainly not Alexandra Miles. She isn’t nice, but she’s more than skilled at playing the part. She floats through the halls of Spencer High, effortlessly orchestrating the actions of everyone around her, making people bend to her whim without even noticing they’re doing it. She is the queen of Spencer High—and it’s time to make it official.

Alexandra has a goal, you see—Homecoming Queen. Her ambitions are far grander than her small town will allow, but homecoming is just the first step to achieving total domination. So when peppy, popular Erin Hewett moves to town and seems to have a real shot at the crown, Alexandra has to take action.

With the help of her trusted friend Sam, she devises her most devious plot yet. She’ll introduce an unexpected third competitor in the mix, one whose meteoric rise—and devastating fall—will destroy Erin’s chances once and for all. Alexandra can run a scheme like this in her sleep. What could possibly go wrong?

I found out about this book through Lola @ Hit or Miss Books. She did a review on this and she made the book sound so interesting! So thank you Lola for that. I love the blurb and I am a sucker for pretty covers, so I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book.

What are you waiting on this week? Let’s talk in the comments section. Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. I totally know that I didn’t post a Teaser Tuesday yesterday. I’m sorry, our internet decided to be an a-hole.
