Meet The Ashley’s. A group of rich, magnificent looking, smart, bratty, and incredibly spoilt young girls who are top of the class in school and outside of it. That is until a new girl named Lauren arrives at school in a stretched limo. With her newfound wealth Lauren’s plan is to infiltrate the Ashleys and then destroy them. Melissa de la Cruz has created a series that delves into the clique and ruthlessness of American junior high school. The Ashley’s shows you a world where the correct accessories are imperative, clothing is an obsession and money is no object.

Synopsis

The Ashleys by Melissa De La Cruz

Ashley "Ash" Spencer: The only one who can use her real name. Lives in tunics and grosgrain headbands. Highly allergic to peanuts. Secret: Her Gwyneth-blonde hair is due to a salon first-process. Ashley "Lili" Li: Fashion-forward Lili won't leave the house without her oversized sunglasses and Pucci head scarf. Father co-founded yourTV.com and forces her to befriend Lauren Page, the daughter of his co-founder. Secret: Wishes Ashley Spencer would swallow a peanut. Ashley "Bunny" Alioto: Captain of the lacrosse team; smart, pretty, and outgoing. Secret: Rumoured to have got to first base with Robert Austin Elliott "Tri" from the Towne School for Boys, but at a recent encounter at a film premiere, he couldn't remember her name. Meet Lauren Page. New to the Hamlin School. Father's company went public last month, and with that came a mansion in Pacific Heights and a Bentley with a driver named Thomas. Last year she was playing with Barbies, this year she's been promoted from the rank and file to the top of the heap - from geek to goddess, stickers to Saint-Laurent. Her parents tried, but they got the trend wrong: her name is Lauren, but she's so obviously an Ashley

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
