Haters

"'Until recently, my dad seemed to realize he was a hopeless geek,' says 16-year-old Pasquala 'Paski' Archuleta, who moves from Taos to Orange County, California, after her cartoonist dad sells the film option for one of his stories; Paski's drifter mom is long gone, and Paski feels like an outsider at her new school, where money seems to matter most. Her mountain bike grounds her, and her exceptional stunts attract gorgeous Chris, the boyfriend of a treacherous queen bee. In her debut for youth, the author of The Dirty Girls Social Club (2003) ably elevates the shopworn story of a soulful teen who triumphs over mean girls." — Booklist
