Product Description

"Fans of YA will totally get a kick out of McHugh's novel not only because it's funny, but also because the characters are so real." -- RT Book Reviews

WINNER of the NATIONAL READERS CHOICE AWARD for best YA of 2015

Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen B*tch.

After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she's carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.

Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.
Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.
Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.

But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now.

And don't miss the sequel, The Queen B* Strikes Back, available NOW!

This is the first book of a series and also the first book I've read by this author.

I loved this book. It's fresh, well written, and an all around fun read. I liked the two main characters, and the story that develops between them. A really great book, and since it's currently free, everyone should read it.

This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

Alexis is the mean girl because she had enough with being bullied in middle school. She stands up and rights wrongs as well as trying to get victims to toughen up. Everyone is scared of her except her two best friends and her little sister... Even the Queen Bee who forced her to be this way. Until the fateful Health class where she gets paired with the star quarterback Brett. Has she been wrong about him? Is there more to him than there seems? Why does she care? Has she lost her mind? Is she going soft?

This is an awesome book about deling with bullies and injustice all while retaining a sense of humor. I loved it and wisb more men girls were really like this! I can't wait to read the next book!

***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers who like their mean girl crusders with a heart of gooy gold hidden by a hard outter shell covered in snarky goodness :)

"Confessions Of A Queen B*" is a young adult coming-of-age novel by Crista McHugh; the first of a three part series which follows Alexis Wyndham during the last few months of her senior year of high school when she falls for Brett Pederson, the star quarterback and is therefore forced to re-evaluate what she has believed in so far and the persona the she has worked so hard to construct.

Is this book for you? Well, if you are looking for a story full of scheming females and bitchiness, à la "Mean Girls" or "Heathers", this is not it. Think more along the lines of "10 Things I Hate About You".

The narration is wholly from Alexis' point of view, in the first person. It is all about her, her feelings, her thoughts and perceptions, and it focuses on her relationship with Brett. The timeline is linear, with the exception of the snippets from The Eastline Spy at the beginning of each chapter which are from Alexis' sophomore year, and spans about a two weeks period.

Confessions of a Queen B* is a fast light-hearted read, which touches on quite a few serious topics in the life of a teenager on the cusp of adulthood. It is a tale of growth, and as such often the character's actions will not make much sense, but then again at that age they seldom do! As infuriating as they might be, it adds realism to the story and authenticity to its characters.

As a minor niggle, at times the writing felt a little repetitive, for instance Alexis referring to their health assignment as "becoming the bane of [her] existence" - although this was only mentioned twice, it was done word for word.

Overall, funny, well written and thought-through. I look forward to the next instalment, 'The Queen B* Strikes Back'.

HASH(0x985bd4bc) out of 5 stars a non cookie cutter YA bok that is great! July 31 2015
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
4.5/5

Confessions of a Queen B* is the first book in the young adult Queen B* series by Crista McHugh. I loved this book so much!I found it to be a breath of fresh air. The mean girl cliche has seemed overdone and tired to me lately, but Crista McHugh breathes new life and heart into this story of self professed Queen B* blogger, Alexis. Her blog is like a mixture of gossip girl and Harriet the Spy. And what I loved was that each chapter started off with a mini excerpt from her blog, the Eastline Spy. (Eastline is the high school name by the way.)

While the blog and Alexis’ status as Queen B* of the high school is a central theme of the story, it almost felt secondary to the wonderful friendship that was forming between Lexie (as he calls her) and Brent. Brent is uber popular, and is paired up with Lexie for a very high tech baby project. Together they are responsible for raising a baby. (which I am beyond happy they did not have when I was in high school, because that would have been a nightmare for me.) Brent is so great. I loved how grounded and stable he is. He is just an all around great guy.And he actually took the time to tell Lexie that he wasn’t buying her mean girl act, listen to her and actually get to know her. It melted my heart.

And Confessions of a Queen B*, while being a really sweet budding relationship between the two of them with flirting and cutesy banter, it was so innocent and developed at what I thought was a wonderful and appropriate pace. There is a hint of more to come but I kind of love Crista McHugh for setting up the series the way she did. She didn’t rush into romance just for the sake of having romance. When I finished the book I flipped out and immediately checked goodreads to make sure that this was part of a series. But never fear, dear readers, it is. There will be more in store for Lexie and Brent. Crista I hope you have something great in store for them in the next book, because I really really like them together. They are probably in my top 5/10 book couples of 2015.

Fans of Young Adult high school setting books that are craving something fresh and so, so well done. Check out Confessions of a Queen B*. It is a great YA book, that is not cookie cutter, and will have you smiling ear to ear. I think you will love it just as much as I did.

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not compensated for my review.

HASH(0x982459f0) out of 5 stars can't wait for the next book! Aug. 22 2015
By Alex E Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I do love myself some good old high school hierarchy drama. I really don't think life gets any more exciting. It's like being at war, and perhaps that's why - being a huge fantasy nerd - reading the HS misery of someone else is oddly and sadistically gratifying. Isn't that what a lot of fantasy tales are about? The little guy overcoming all odds and defeating the great evil in the land and winning the heart of the fair princess/prince? It's exactly why nerds, such as myself, clung to fantasy while going through the hellish middle/high school years.

Alexis Wyndham is one such heroine. The kind that takes matters into her own hands and defies all social norms to overthrow the high school royalty. But what sets her apart from ALL THE OTHER HS Dramas out there is her voice. Alexis is hilarious. At least, I thought so. She brought humor to situations, even when she was terrified of what she was doing. She's loyal, sticking up for a sister who dwells with the enemy. She's vulnerable, while trying desperately to keep her tough girl veneer. She's basically everything I wish I could have been when I was young.

Alexis is bound and determined to rid the halls of Eastline High from the tyranny of the popular crowd, except... there's one small hitch in her plans. She's falling for the golden boy, the top dog. And for good reason. Brett is pretty much perfect, and, as it turns out, a lot more like her than Lexi is comfortable with. It's like realizing that all the beliefs that you've held close to your heart for so long, lived your life by, may not actually be true. This is why Confessions of a Queen B* is only book 1 in a trilogy! The book ends in some murky waters, and I cannot wait to see where Lexi's story goes from here!

HASH(0x98041e04) out of 5 stars WOW AWESOME BOOK! July 28 2015
By Grace Morales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
WOW AWESOME BOOK!

I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. It centers around high school students but didn’t feel too high school. It was a really great read that everyone could connect with Lexi was a character you can connect with. I have a theory that everyone in their life has felt bullied. I don’t care how perfect your life is, you feel not good enough at some point. Lexi was that girl who had a best friend who hurt her. She fought back. She became the Queen B and in turn put up walls all around her.

Bret was the wrecking ball that came in and started to tear those down. How could you not love this guy? He was incredible! I LOVED Bret, and I truly cannot wait to see what happens. I will put this on my must read list, and suggest you ONE CLICK NOW!!!
HASH(0x98582204) out of 5 stars I enjoyed it that much Nov. 7 2015
By Bailey Riddle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did not want to put this book down the entire time I was reading it, I enjoyed it that much.

This book had content that I could really relate to. The main character of the book, Alexis, runs a blog chronicling all of the drama that goes on at her high school and exposing people’s wrongdoings, both students and teachers alike. This is somewhat along the lines of an idea that my best friend and I had in high school, so I was very entertained by it.

Alexis prides herself on being the Queen Bitch of the school, the person that everyone is afraid of. People are afraid to be around her because they don’t want to give her any ideas for an exposé to put on her blog. Even though she will stick up for the kids who aren’t popular and in power, she doesn’t go easy on them either, and tells them that they need to stand up for themselves.

Alexis is a prime example of doing something to the extreme in order to cope with a past trauma. The entire reason that she starts her blog is because she got burned by her former best friend, who decided to expose all of Alexis’ secrets from her diary to the entire school. She decides that she is tired of the popular kids being able to get away with whatever they want, so she strikes back, and she is ruthless. She builds up walls around her and hardens her exterior. This allows her to be harsh to others without feeling bad about it. In her eyes, she is just doing what is right and not allowing the bullies of the world to get away with things.

But then when her senior year starts, Alexis is teamed up with the dreamy quarterback for a class project. She assumes that he is going to be just like all of the other popular kids, but as she gets to know him she starts to realize that she is wrong about him.

I really liked that this book wasn’t predictable. It didn’t have the typical ending where everything ends up perfect and happy, and the main character ends up finding love. I get so tired of books that all end that way, so it was refreshing to see it end differently than most. That being said, it isn’t a sad ending either, but rather a hopeful one that leaves the story line open to continuation in another book.

I give this book 5/5 stars for keeping me very entertained and not being like every other book out there.
HASH(0x98065ca8) out of 5 stars A great story about coming of age in today's world Aug. 1 2015

Originally Reviewed For: Tea and Book

I freely admit that I am not always a fan of the "teen angst" Books but I am a fan of Crista McHugh, so I thought what the heck, I am so gonna give this book a try. I have had it on hand for a while and things just went crazy so I wasn't able to embrace my inner Queen B until now. I will say it was well worth the wait.

Queen B was fun and flirty while addressing a very serious teen issue, FITTING in, well fitting in AND being true to yourself. Crista is just good. She managed to reel in the angst, take me back to my HS days AND write a book I actually enjoyed. I think many of my YA readers will enjoy this, that goes for the adults too.

What Queen B isn't is a romance, it's a coming of age story about a girl who was betrayed as only a middle schooler can be betrayed and then reinvented herself so no one would ever again hurt her. Only by doing so she cut off a world of wonder. Sure she has a couple of true friends but she closes off just about everyone else.

"Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch." A Girl who faced the bullies and truly believes she came out stronger. Since her moment of shame she has become a hardened VOICE against just about everyone. Sure she chooses to get her revenge by outing the mean kids, or corrupt administration, but in the end she's hidden from the world behind a mask of Bitchiness and is perfectly happy with that. Until a SCHOOL assignment pares her with Brett, HS Hottie, Star Quarterback and boyfriend of her arch Nemesis. She doesn't need to get to know him, she already knows. Except maybe she doesn't.

Brett is all of the things that Alexis accuses him of but he is so much more. He really is a nice guy. Committed to his family, loyal to his friends and SMART, really smart. And for some reason Alexis Wyndham is it for him. Now he just has to get her to see past her bitter wall of anger and maybe take a chance on him.

As I said in the beginning this could have been just like any other teen aged angst story but it's not. It's about life, about making choices and finding yourself. It's about accepting the flaws of others and most importantly believing in yourself.. And yes there's a bit of a romance rolled in there as well. Hey, it's High School..

Crista does a wonderful JOB of capturing HS, while this wasn't anywhere near what my HS was like it doesn't matter. The emotions, the confusion and the growth are truly universal and Crista brings out the good and the bad and wraps it beautifully in Queen B..

I can't wait to hear more from the Queen..
