Everybody wants to be the “It” girl. In the book “The It Girl,” by Katy Birchall (Aladdin Books), the main character, Anna Huntley, wants to be the “It” girl, and in order for that to happen she has a list of aims in life. Her aims are:

1. She must keep her two school friends by not doing anything dorky.

2. Train her Labrador retriever to high-five.

3. Not set the mean girl in school’s hair on fire.

4. Exercise more.

5. Feed the poor in a foreign country.

This book is interesting, and if you want to read about a teenager’s problems in high school, then I definitely recommend this book.
