Synopsis

The Ruling Class by Francine Pascal

In the posh suburban Dallas high school of Highland Park, the beautiful and perfect Jeanette Sue is queen. The Ruling Class, her clique of spectacularly cruel girls, runs the school. Brutally. And no one questions them. Certainly not the little suck-up Myrna Fry, whose only aim in life is to be part of the Ruling Class, no matter what or who gets trashed. It's a nightmare school caught in the grips of terror until the arrival of the totally undesir-able, absolutely unfashionable, and -- way worse -- poor Twyla Gay Stark. And then, of course, there is the tall and gorgeous hunk, Ryder McQuaid, Jeanette Sue's property. Or so Jeanette Sue thinks.With uncanny insight and unforgettable characters Francine Pascal has created a searing, up-close look into the power games and class struggles within a seemingly friendly clique in a suburban high school. The Ruling Class is a magnetic tour de force created by a master storyteller at the top of her form.

Reviews

Darlene, age 15 It's like reading a movie. You will never want to stop reading it. You'll love it -- because I did. Dellin, age 15 I loved it! It's so emotional, and you won't stop reading until you finish it. Paula Danziger This is a brave, smart book. Any of us who have ever been bullied or taunted or even made to feel uncomfortable by very mean, cliquey, powerful girls will identify with it.
