The Accidental Bad Girl

(4) YA Pretty Kendall's popularity plummets after getting caught hooking up with her best friend's boyfriend by the entire senior class. Kendall doesn't feel worthy of shame, but a local drug dealer uses her reputation to blackmail and recruit her. What begins as a vaguely feminist social drama gives way to a somewhat implausible crime thriller; it's a compelling but not entirely cohesive combination.
