What: The Naughty List
Where: Penguin (Razorbill)
When: February 4th, 2010
As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn't enough
responsibility! Tessa Crimson's the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society
of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad—turned—spy society dedicated to bringing
dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting
wouldn't be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List
has been proven 100% guilty!
When Tessa's own boyfriend shows up on the
List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the
rest, or will Tessa's sneaky ways end in catastrophe?
The Naughty List.
Is your boyfriend on it?
The Naughty List was fun, quick, and sweet read about a girl named Tessa who runs a society called the Society of Smitten Kittens that catches cheaters in the act, though publicly known as the cheer leading squad of their high school. But when twins move into their town, one boy and one girl, they start stirring up trouble. Especially with her adorable boyfriend, Aiden.
The Naughty List is the type of book you read in one sitting, sweet and short. The writing is exactly like i've come to know Suzanne for, simple but relatable. While not every teen does around sneaking around to catch douche-bags, Naughty List does a great job of showing how much it hurts to be cheating on and how damaging it could be to your self-esteem. The teenagers were genuine and real, and dear god, cursed. Nothing irritates me more than a YA High School setting with absolutely no curse words. Sure, Tessa didn't, but the rest of the school did! The SOS had such a commitment to their fellow students, which was endearing and sweet.
Tessa was witty and nice. She wanted to do what was best for her squad and the rest of the school, but also wanted to take care of herself. And she definitely kept her wits about when she had to deal with that stupid girl. NRGtiuntjhg. God, I hated that girl. And Aiden! He was so sweet and cute. I really loved Tessa and Aiden's relationship and while the ending was surprising, I loved it as well!
