Description:

Recently banished, unfairly, by the school’s popular crowd, former “it girl,” Miranda Prospero, finds herself in a brave new world: holding dominion amongst a rag-tag crew of geeks and misfits where she works at the Hot-Dog Kabob in the food court of her local mall. When the worst winter storm of the season causes mall workers and last-minute shoppers to be snowed-in for the night, Miranda seizes the opportunity to get revenge against the catty clique behind her social exile. With help from her delightfully dweeby coworker, Ariel, and a sullen loner named Caleb who works at the mall’s nearby gaming and magic shop, Miranda uses charm and trickery to set things to right during this spirited take on Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

My Thoughts: 

Former 'it girl' Miranda is working at the Hot-Dog Kabob in the local mall where all the people she had a falling out hang out or work.  Miranda is getting ready for Ariel's birthday when the mall goes on lockdown due to the weather outside.

Also going on in the mall is a robbery someone is stealing mp3 players, jewelry, etc it's up to Miranda and her band of misfits to find out what is going on.  All this while Miranda is handcuffed to Caleb the worker at a gaming store in the mall.

Miranda and Ariel also set up to put a few of the 'cool kids' in place with some pranks to remind them that they could easily be outcasts.  This was a great book showing that looks can be deceiving and about not judging people before you really know them, and most of all not to tick of a former 'it girl'.  I loved it!

The Next Book in this series is:
