Loser/Queen
Jodi Lynn Anderson, illus. by Brittney Lee, Simon & Schuster, $9.99 trade paper (272p) ISBN 978-1-4169-9646-0
Fans of Anderson's Peaches may be disappointed in this formulaic, bittersweet Cinderella story, the course of which readers helped determine via an online promotion earlier this year. Fifteen-year-old Cammy, "a born outsider," suffers the ultimate humiliation when she is literally caught with her pants down in front of a crowd of students. But a few days later, she receives a text from someone named the White Rabbit offering to help her get even. After following cryptic step-by-step instructions, Cammy not only witnesses her enemies fall, but also receives a "Mad Men meets Katy Perry" makeover, lands a prom date, and is given chances to boost the self-esteem of other victimized peers. Predictably, triumphs lead to downfalls as the White Rabbit's demands have increasingly cruel results. Readers may find the mess Cammy creates for herself more frustrating than entertaining, and they will likely feel the most empathy for Cammy's ditched best friend, Gerdi, a Danish foreign exchange student who proves to be wiser and more independent than the fickle heroine. Art not seen by PW. Ages 13–up.

Reviewed from galleys R Gr. 7-10

Though mousy Cammy has a best friend, Gerdi, she still spends most of her time trying to avoid being noticed at their small high school, because being noticed usually means acquiring a new embarrassing nickname due to her perpetual awkwardness. Things change when Cammy receives a mysterious package with instructions that lead to a beauty makeover, some payback, and access to the intimate secrets of her classmates (which have been obtained, unknown to Cammy, by spying on them). She’s then instructed by her enigmatic benefactor to use those secrets to give meaningful little gifts and perform acts of kindness and sometimes heroics for various classmates and teachers—and a few vengeful pranks as well. While Gerdi warns Cammy to stop doing the bidding of the unidentified puppetmaster, Cammy enjoys both the power of anonymity and the new friendships she’s garnering from the more public acts. When she finally refuses to perform a task that will hurt Gerdi, though, her benefactor exposes her, and her classmates forget the good she’s done in the face of more nasty episodes and the invasion of their privacy.

Putting a fresh twist on high-school social dynamics, the story of Cammy’s rise and fall involves readers at a gut empathy level; there’s nothing really wrong with what she’s doing, and in most cases the person pulling the strings is using his spying activities to beneficial effect, so why shouldn’t she reap some benefits herself? Nevertheless, he’s still spying, and Cammy’s motives are far from pure. Ultimately, though, it’s her passivity and eagerness to please that bring her down, allowing her to remain a sympathetic and relatable character throughout. Though initially created as an interactive online serial, this works effectively and seamlessly as a standalone book. Reviewed from an unillustrated galley. KC

ANDERSON, Jodi Lynn. Loser/Queen. illus. by Brittney Lee. 357p. S & S. 2010. pap. $9.99. ISBN 978-1-4169-9646-0; ebook $8.99. ISBN 978-1-4169-9647-7. LC number unavailable.
Gr 7 Up–Cammy Hall, 15, is a born outsider, positioned at the bottom of the high school social order. She dresses oddly and lives with her grandparents. She spends her time knitting amigurumi, watching old episodes of Golden Girls, and hanging out with her equally uncool exchange-student friend, Gerdi. After a humiliating incident at a school dance, she begins receiving mysterious text messages from someone calling him/herself the White Rabbit. The White Rabbit seems to know everyone’s secrets, good and bad, and gives Cammy cryptic commands to do various things to and for fellow students and teachers. At first, these are relatively harmless and even positive, and she finds herself becoming more and more popular, but when the White Rabbit’s agenda becomes more mean-spirited, Cammy must choose whether to go along with it or refuse and risk losing her newfound popularity and the affections of the boy she has long admired. This is the print version of an interactive book that was originally posted on the Loser/Queen website in online installments, with story elements determined by reader feedback and voting. Not surprisingly, the book is completely plot driven, sometimes at the expense of characterization, and the conclusion seems abrupt. However, readers will enjoy the many twists and will be eager to discover the identity of the mysterious White Rabbit.–Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ
