Laurie Devore

What makes a mean girl mean? Find out in this compelling and compulsively readable debut novel filled with revenge and romance in a small southern town.

Since the death of her brother, mean girl Olivia's life is unravelling. When she catches her boyfriend sleeping with her BFF, Olivia realizes she needs to work on an escape plan to get out of this town. She strikes a bargain with the school's "good guy," Whit DuRant: he will tutor her for the SAT and help her take down her former best friend, while they pretend to date as a cover.

But no matter how hard she tries to be good, Olivia just can't help being bad. Her choices unleash a tidal wave of drama that affects those closest to her, forcing her to question if she is any better than her sworn frenemy.

Laurie Devore was born and raised in small town South Carolina and graduated from Clemson University. She now lives and works in Chicago, where she misses the charms and contradictions of the south every day. In her spare time, she reluctantly runs marathons, watches too much TV, and works a "y'all" into every conversation.
