Review: Foolish Hearts

Foolish Hearts Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Claudia has it pretty good. She attends a prestigious prep school (because her dad teaches there), has an amazing best friend, family life is solid, and she's going to be an aunt anytime now. But somehow, Senior year is looking to be a bit "different".

At an end-of-summer picnic, Claudia overhears the school power couple (Iris and Paige) go through a horrible breakup which puts her on Iris' list - where nobody wants to be! This steamrolls into a series of unfortunate events where Claudia and Iris are forced to work together on a project, end up thrown together in the school's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and ultimately learn that people are not always what they seem.

I love these charming, angsty, and flawed characters. Mills manages to create a cast of teens who serve to show that insecurity, selfishness, intensity, and forgiveness are simply part of growing up, regardless of how much money you have, where you live, or who you date.
