About the book:

Lucy’s learned some important lessons from tabloid darling Jayla Heart’s all-too-public blunders: Avoid the spotlight, don’t feed the Internet trolls, and keep your secrets secret. The policy has served Lucy well all through high school, so when her best friend Ellie gets sick before prom and begs her to step in as Cole’s date, she accepts with a smile, silencing about ten different reservations. Like the one where she’d rather stay home shredding online zombies. And the one where she hates playing dress-up. And especially the one where she’s been secretly in love with Cole since the dawn of time.

When Cole surprises her at the after party with a kiss under the stars, it’s everything Lucy has ever dreamed of… and the biggest BFF deal-breaker ever. Despite Cole’s lingering sweetness, Lucy knows they’ll have to ’fess up to Ellie. But before they get the chance, Lucy’s own Facebook profile mysteriously explodes with compromising pics of her and Cole, along with tons of other students’ party indiscretions. Tagged. Liked. And furiously viral.

By Monday morning, Lucy’s been branded a slut, a backstabber, and a narc, mired in a tabloid-worthy scandal just weeks before graduation.

Lucy’s been battling undead masses online long enough to know there’s only one way to survive a disaster of this magnitude: Stand up and fight. Game plan? Uncover and expose the Facebook hacker, win back her best friend’s trust, and graduate with a clean slate.

There’s just one snag—Cole. Turns out Lucy’s not the only one who’s been harboring unrequited love… – From Goodreads

  1. So fun. :) My fave scandal? The TV show, “Scandal,” of course! :D

  2. How can another blogger join the Selective Collective?

  3. Also, not sure what post we’re supposed to comment on to win a copy of #scandal, but I really enjoyed Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti, Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt, What Would Emma Do by Eileen Cook, and The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols. Never realized how many YA books there are when it comes to scandals involving two best friends and one of their boyfriends until now.

  4. I don’t know if I have a favorite scandal. I usually tend to cringe away from them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. My favorite scandal is Newland Archer falling in love with Ellen Olenska in The Age of Innocence.

  6. My favorite scandal is Star Crossed! :)
