About the Book: Final book in the Georgia Nicolson Series.

The Comeback by Marlene Perez
Release Date: 8/1/2009
About the Book: Sophie Donnelly is one half of the most popular and powerful couple in school, until new girl Angie Vogel shows up and compromises everything.

Sophie has been quickly dispatched to social Siberia, but not for long--she'll do anything it takes to make a triumphant comeback.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I was a drama nerd in high school, so I enjoy books about school plays, drama nerds and all the drama. Plus, that dress is adorable and I so want to wear it!!!
Not a book, but I really want to see this movie! Anyone else?
