Erika Soto is one of those pretty plastic people.  She's been rated a nine by the senior boys every single Monday, and at a school where secrets and weaknesses are taken advantage of, a high rating is a ticket to the school's elite.  But there's more to Erika and the Aquino High royalty she surrounds herself with: there's regret, flaws, and a single night that rips them all apart.  And after years of clawing her way to the top, for the first time she can see things clearly: she's done with only being pretty and plastic.

As her life starts to unravel and her perspectives on everyone she thought she knew change, she has to make a quick decision between living at the top of the pyramid and living with herself.  And even if she does choose to take a stand, who's to stay she'll succeed?  Can the girls on top really overthrow a system that's years in the making?

Damn, this story is like a slow expose book. It's not exposing how the main character is connected to everyone else until the "right" moment.
It sounds dumb but with my streak of straight A this year I would legit freak out if I get anything less than a ln A-

This reminds me of a book. I can't quite remember what the name is, but it had a system similar to this one. It only ranked the hottest and the ugliest girls in each grade, so there were two girls per grade, one the prettiest, one the ugliest. It reminds me so much of this.
