When Hailey Harper's family moves cross country before her sopho year Hailey decides she's been given a chance to re invent herself when it comes to her social station within the world of high school Aided by her older sister's hand me down clothes and a journal called How to Be a Hater Hailey seems ready to take her Southern California high school by storm and find her niche among the popular and famousBut Hailey finds the popular crowd isn't all she thought it was and after a day or two as part of the in crowd she decides she'd rather spend time with people who share her taste in music and other things and instead of being popular She decides to use her older sister's book of rules and observations to elevate herself and others to a different social strataCaprice Crane's Confessions of a Hater chronicles Hailey's rise as well as her feud with the popular crowd she rejected Written with wry observations about life in high school and a few genuinely heart felt moments the novel seems cut from the same cloth as the hit movie Mean Girls Hailey's first person narration is witty sardonic and completely self aware in an almost Joss Whedon like fashionUnfortunately what Whedon makes look easy on the small screen isn't necessarily as easy as you'd think and while this book has its moments there are other times when it feels a bit too clever for its own good A lot of this comes into play in an ever escalating series of pranks played out between Hailey's cliue and the popular cliue It culminates in a final prank by Hailey that seems a bit over the line as does the reaction by various authority figures within her life It almost feels like Hailey gets punished in the short term but rewarded in the long term for her prankAnother uestion I have with the book is the target audience While the ARC I was provided says this novel is one targeted to the young adult audience it feels like Crane is trying to appeal to those who are beyond their high school years to look back with a bit of snark and nostalgia And while there isn't a metaphor uite like the one Whedon used in Buffy you can't help but feel that Crane is trying to achieve that and coming up just a bit short There is some humor here but I often found it hitting the mark because I'd gone beyond high school and could look back at it now and find the humor in the situation Whether or not those going through it will enjoy this or not remains to be seen

Confessions of a HaterHigh school was pretty much like this huge party I wasn't actually invited to but I still had to show up to every dayHailey Harper has always felt invisible Now her dad has a new job and the family is moving to Hollywood Just what Hailey needs to start a new high schoolAs she. As I'm looking through the book store Oh wow This book has such a pretty cover Reads the blurb And it looks interesting too Let's buy itI still find the cover pretty But the storyWhere Who What storyThis plot was so full of clichés it made me want to vomit An unpopular girl who moves to a new town has a makeover and start hanging out with the cool crowd Check A cooler cuter older sister who ignores the little one Check A girl who got pregnant Check A mean ueen bee obssessed with fashion and controlling her minions Check check check To make matters worse the drawings on the insides of the hardcover gave the whole story away Seriously I already knew most of what was going to happen halfway through the story It's like the author thought we are such complete idiots that we wouldn't figure out what they meant I almost gave up on finishing the book several times but I told myself that since I'd spent twenty two dollars on this book Canadian I had better finish it I'm glad I held on as the only non cliché element of the plot came up around 6 chapters before the endI loved Hailey at first She was smart witty sassy average I could really relate to her I also loved her talent drawing comic strips Original or what But then she started changing for the worst and became your average mean girl Then that whole scene with Chris happened and Caprice Crane was that REALLY necessary Call me a prude but I was grossed out I'm 14 I don't want to read about this And then the only thing that really threw me off board was spoiler what happened with Hailey's parents Maybe other people noticed something was off but I didn't So you know kudos for thatSo my final rating Firstly for the sake of Hailey's sassiness because without it the book would have been unreadably boring I give one star Secondly for the surprise twist with Hailey's parents I give another star And thirdly for the nice cover I give 05 star because the cover doesn't make the storyTotal 25 stars And that is generous given the utter crapiness of what I just readI can tell you I'm not bound to pick up another book by Caprice Cane anytime soon UPDATE 06272014 Re reading this review I started thinking that what I described was basically the plot of Mean Girls with a couple of tweaks Is it just me
