Do you remember (and miss!) the snappy comebacks and adorable pink mini skirts that the ladies in Mean Girls made us so insanely jealous of back in 2004? We certainly do! It has been 12 years and our hearts have yet to recover from the gloriously sassy ways of the vivacious Plastics. If it’s either been far too long, or you just can’t get enough of these glossy-lipped gals and the high intensity drama of high school, check out the list of books below!
1. They All Fall Down by Roxanne St. Claire
The lives of 10 junior girls change at Vienna High when they’re voted onto the list and Kenzie Summerall can’t believe that she made it. Everything is great until the girls on this year’s list start dying…Talk about killer looks, right?
2. The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) by Kody Keplinger
Follow quirky seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper as she narrates her experiences with friends, enemies, and the struggles of life and love through high school. Also, feel free to check out the movie version and compare the two!
3. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
A missing best friend, a random to-do list, and crazy adventures of a summer that lead to an unexpected romance and the answers that need finding. Sounds like the perfect YA classic read!
4. How Not to Be Popular by Jennifer Ziegler
Maggie Dempsey is struggling after leaving old friends behind and she refuses to partake in anything that might make her actually enjoy her new home in Austin, TX. She soon discovers that, whether she likes it or not, drama, new friends, and a potential new romance are all waiting around the corner for her.
5. Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, Book 1) by Sara Shepard
Four best friends in their junior year of high school are haunted and threatened by the dark secrets of their past after they’ve drifted apart following their best friend’s disappearance years ago. This is the first novel in the widely popular YA series and it has also been brought to the silver screen.
What day is it, again? 🙂
