    I love this book! It has everything an A+ book should have. WARNING:EXTREME SPOILERS!!! Brandon admits that he has a crush on Nikki! But when Nikki becomes a student ambassador, things are in for a change. Nikki emails the transfer student, Andrea, to make her feel safe in WCD. Nikki gives Andrea advice for her school, "Avoid the snobby mean girls and the annoying guys, and you'll be fine! None on the guys have made fun of my hairy legs lately! I have 2 BFFs, Chloe and Zoey and a crush, Brandon, He's a TOTAL CUTIE! You can just call us Branikki!" When Nikki finally meets Andrea, her name isn't Andrea! It's Andre! And he's a boy! HOW EMBARRASING! Luckily, Andre doesn't judge. But the thing is... Andre is... PERFECT!!! Nikki starts crushing on Andre and poor Brandon is upset and jealous! Soon mean posts are online of how Nikki LOVES Andre! They change the original posts too! One day though, Brandon sees the posts. He is heartbroken! Nikki can't explain to him though! Will Andre pay for his crimes or will the couple fall apart? Read to see!
