Andie's nervous about starting high school. What if everyone compares her to her super-popular sister and finds her lacking?
Since Claire just graduated, she won't be there to help Andie, but neither will she be there to overshadow her. The day Claire leaves for college, she leaves behind a present for Andie: a field guide to high school.
Inside, she dishes on what not to do, the differences between the cliques, and the knowledge that everyone's insecure in high school. Is the answer really to just be yourself?
Andie shares the guide with her best friend, Bess, who will be attending a different high school. While the two friends pour over the guide with amusement and wonder, they realize that this tiny guide dishes on everything high school.
Readers will be left wondering if Andie follows her sister's advice and if she survives high school, though, since the book only spans one day.
