Swimming with the Sharks Swimming with Sharks (2008)
Five-foot eleven. Freckled. Flat as a surfboard. Peyton Grady sees her role on the varsity cheer squad as the only thing keeping her off the social sidelines at wealthy Beachwood Preparatory Academy. It's her umbilical cord to cool—and it's constantly in danger of getting cut. As a base, it's Peyton's duty to be stepped on—literally—by cheer queen Lexie Court. So when Lexie hatches a fierce hazing campaign against the frumpy new girl, Peyton has no choice but to support her flier. Soon the pranks become sadistically cruel, even criminal. Suddenly, Peyton has more to lose than her new-found Alpha celebrity. Will she gamble her entire future for "the good of the squad"?
"Debbie Reed Fischer's sizzling take on girl hazing and cheer pressure mixes the perfect ration of humor to anger for a compelling, un-put-downable read."—Alex Flinn, author of Breathing Underwater
Braless in Wonderland Braless in Wonderland (2008)
Allee Rosen is a lot of things: high school senior, overachiever, brain. The one thing she's not is supermodel material. She leaves that to the pretty people like her little sister (aka "The Fluff"). That's why it's a complete shock when Allee, not her sister, is the one spotted by modeling scouts at the mall and signed by an elite modeling agency in Miami. Suddenly, Allee is swept up in a whirlwind of designer labels, photo shoots, go-sees and some seriously backstabbing models. Will this fabulous new life go to her head? Issues of body image, feminism and personal growth are also woven throughout the story as readers enjoy a funny, honest insider's peek at what really goes on behind the cameras. In the world of fashion, nothing is ever what it seems, and much like Alice in Wonderland, this novel is a surreal adventure full of self-discovery and transformation, with plenty of glamour and fun along the way.
