Bianca Stratford is a girl who knows how to strategize, put a plan in motion, and navigate the minefield that is high school's social ladder. Back at her Ohio high school, she earned a PhD in Popularity. But Padua High is a whole new beast. Bianca's adapting to its advanced social climate (she's already traded in her penguin suit for pom poms), but can she balance the urges of her heart and her head ... and still get ahead?
