[2022 YOUNG ADULT WATTY WINNER] Penny Brooks's life is nothing short of perfect; during her reign of being a mean girl at Royal High School, she has it all: a hot boyfriend, the coolest best friend who is the ultimate bully, and a position at the top of the food chain. What could be better? But when Penny and Annie are involved in a tragic accident one night, involving alcohol, stupid decisions, and pressure to remain in the midst of popularity, Penny's world is turned entirely upside down. Immediately ostracized from everything she'd worked so hard for, she must keep her head down - even when a mysterious new boy - who captures the attention of everyone, comes into the small town of Port Royal, North Carolina. Will Penny find her way back to the top? Or will the hatred of almost everyone who once idolized her, haunt her forever? ~ "I actually think this is amazing" - xrosegold14 "Your writing style is so beautiful"
