What’s the basic story line?

Georgia Khatchadorian is entering Hills Village Middle School and thinks everything is going to be like elementary school, where she got good grades and had a lot of friends. She even makes a bet with her brother, Rafe, that she will be popular at her new school. But things are different at HVMS. Rafe used to go to this school, but he was kicked out because he broke all the rules. The teachers assume that Georgia is just like her brother, so they give her bad grades. To make matter worse, Georgia gets bullied. Will Georgia be able to change her reputation and win the bet? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

Are the characters believable?

Some characters are more believable than others. Georgia faces bullying, like many kids in real life, and she handles it in a believable way. Then there is Rhonda, a kid who sticks up for Georgia. She always talks in a super loud monotone voice, which makes her seem a bit like a cartoon character.
