Jane is the sort of quiet, ordinary girl who can walk down the hallways of her school without being noticed by anyone - not the football boys, the stoners, the debaters, and especially not the Bitches. The school royalty made up of one girl from each class who is so transcendentally beautiful and fascinating that no one can help but worship her.
Rhymes With Witches follows Jane, a quiet, ordinary girl. She is one day approached by the queen bees of the school, the Bitches. They are the beautiful, popular girls who are worshiped by everyone. The Bitches give Jane the offer to join them and become popular and beloved by the whole school. Jane takes that offer, and everything goes down hill from there. There's something fishy going on with the Bitches...
Let me start out by saying that I absolutely adore Lauren Myracle's books, but this one was a huge disappointment. The plot was rubbish and full of holes, the characters were horrible, and the ending was just awful! It was abrupt, it was too fast, and there wasn't any kind of redemption, they didn't explain how things came to be, and they left it off with a cliffhanger without any sign of a sequel. This book was awful. The only redeeming point was how they kind of dealt with bullying. Even then it wasn't very satisfying. All of the characters were so disloyal and so focused on being popular. They didn't care who they stepped on in the process, they just desperately wanted to be popular. Even Jane, she stabbed her best friend in the back to be popular. This was a mess and I was really really disappointed.
I really love Lauren Myracles' book series The Winnie Years. I read them when I was a preteen.
I absolutely love The Winnie Years. They're excellently written, the characters are amazing, and the romance in the later books is super cute. The whole series is really realistic, and preteens will relate to it very well. No matter your age you should read them..
