The Hot List by Hillary Homzie
Pub. Date: March 8th, 2011
Age Level: Upper MG
For Sophie Fanuchi, the beginning of seventh grade is brutal. Why does her best friend Maddie Chen suddenly need so many friends? And why does her chief new friend have to be Nia, the daughter of the woman her dad is dating? Isn’t Sophie good enough? Nooooooo, apparently not.
Enter the Hot List, a list of who’s hot and how’s not—written on the back of the bathroom door with a very permanent purple Sharpie-style pen. Oh, it seemed like a good idea at the time. But, suddenly, the whole school goes Hot List mad, and Sophie finds herself in a crazy bet with Nia. She has to get Squid, the geekiest, most un-hot-worthy boy on the list in one month. Can Sophie turn this nottie into a hottie and win back her best friend?
Homzie lovingly writes about seventh grade in this sweet, comedic novel, depicting the changing tides of middle school friendships, crushes and identity.
