A nice light fluffy read about three girls come together to nanny the younger children in the rich family. Although poorly constructed at the start, the book engages you in their lives and accurately reflects how some teens would react in a party rich environment, without supervision away from home. I also enjoyed the quiet digs at the rich, even if the characters were essentially stereotypes - ie. the immigrant girl had to take the fall and play the "loose girl," the middle class American is the "good" girl and the formerly rich girl gains a conscience.

This was a good book, but not totally amazing. It's like Gossip Girl/ The It Girl/ The Babysitter's Club all mashed into one book. It started out pretty slow and kind of confusing about who was who and what each one looked like, but it got better after awhile. I liked the characters better towards the end of the book because they had more time to develop and become better people. I especially had a problem with how much/how often these girls drank! They're only about 16 or 17 years old, but they party and get trashed every night. They also seemed to have a casual view about sex. The partying, drinking, smoking and casual sex thing is a bad example for teens and younger girls who read these books! Otherwise, it was a fairly good book. Not sure if I'll continue this series, though. It was ironic that there was an ad about HIV/AIDS in the back of the book, though. :)
