Book & Author details:

Confessions of a Queen B* by Crista McHugh 
(Queen B*, #1) 
Publication date: July 28th 2015 
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.
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.

Confessions of a Queen B* was a little Mean Girls-esque, which I loved because it helped me relive a little bit of my teenage years. I will say this book portrayed high school and teenage girls with amazing accuracy! As much as I miss being a teenager with no responsibilities, I DO NOT miss being around other teenage girls! 

This book introduces us to Alexis, who is the Queen B, exposing everyone's secrets on the blog, The Eastline Spy. Alexis has already made up her mind about people at school and the certain stereotypes they fit into. That is until she's thrown into caring for a fake baby with none other than Brett, the hunky quarterback. As Alexis spends more time with Brett she starts to realize that maybe not everyone falls into one category and that Brett may not be as bad as she thinks. 

Alexis is a no-holds barred kind of girl who just lets everything fly. Let the chips fall where they may and deal with the consequences then. In some ways I respect that attitude, but as you read the story you can tell that it's definitely more of a defense mechanism than anything. She puts herself down a little bit and thinks herself not worthy of Brett's affections. 

There was also a little mystery thrown into this story. Someone is uploading X-rated videos that were taken in the girl's locker room. Alexis and Brett are trying to figure out who is doing it and why but that seems to get a little lost behind the love story between Alexis and Brett. 

I enjoyed this story but I didn't like the ending. It just kind of ....ended. Of course, it has been set up well for the second book, which I will be putting on my TBR list. I'm hoping that some of the questions I have about the video mystery will be answered in the second book. Things seemed a little unresolved at the end. 

Overall, this is a great quick read for hanging out by the pool, lounging on the beach, or just reading between loads of laundry (that was me). Loved the characters! Can't wait to read more! 


Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista relied on story-telling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained.

She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and two children, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.

Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.

And she’s also a recovering LARPer. (She blames it on her crazy college days)
