It all starts as a goof between Sophie Fanuchi and her BFF Maddie Chen--a "Hot List" the two girls create and anonymously post in the girls' locker room listing the cutest boys at Travis Middle School. Soon enough the list has taken on a life of its own. Maddie's thrilled to be caught up in all the excitement and finally hanging out with the "pops," Travis Middle School's self-proclaimed It Girls. Sophie, however, misses just having secrets between herself and Maddie. Even worse, Maddie's suddenly super tight with Brenna Tate, leader of the pops and the daughter of Sophie's father's new girlfriend. As Sophie and Maddie's friendship unravels, Sophie latches onto an impulsive bet with Brenna to get the universe right again--Sophie declares she'll prove the list is meaningless by making over their wacky classmate Squid so that he can land on the Hot List. But will any bet or list matter more than Sophie's friendships . . .?
`My Review

The first thing I would like to say is that, all the kids in the book were really shallow. I didn't like that about the book.

They said the word "Hot" a million times (it got very old). They said "Sexy" A couple of times and "Shut up" too. In the book, the author spelled some things wrong, like she spelled please... pleas.

My favorite character was Sophie Fanuchi, she was the main character. She was the most non-shallow person, she helped ugly people get on the Hot List. At the end of the book, everyone ended up realizing that The Hot List was a mean thing to do. That was a good thing, because a lot of people got their feelings hurt :(

 I didn't like the book that much and I would not read it again. But if you like really girly, shallow books that talk about a lot of hot guys and girls, than you should read this book!
