Blog Tour: Girl Wonder - Alexa Martin - Tens List

Today, Alexa Martin is here courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her book, Girl Wonder. Thank you for being here, Alexa! You can visit Alexa at her website, located here. If you would like to follow along with the tour, you can do so here, or through the banner. 

What top ten things would you tell your teen self?

1) Never curl your bangs.
2) Bring your own lunch to school. Cafeteria food is scary.
3) Pay attention in Spanish class--you'll thank me for this later.
4) It's okay to have a tutor for math, physics, and chemistry.
5) Be suspicious of anyone who tells you that high school is the best time of your life. It's not.
6) College is great, but for the love of God, find one that you can afford and
7) Join the cross-country team and know that it's perfectly okay to finish dead last. You'll still be ahead of the curve.
8) The pain you feel know will have big payoffs later.
9) It's okay if your best friend is your cat.
10) There is such thing as Karmic justice.


As if transferring senior year weren't hard enough, Charlotte Locke has been bumped to lower level classes at her new school. With no friends, a terrible math SAT score, and looming college application deadlines, the future is starting to seem like an oncoming train for which she has no ticket.

Then Amanda enters her orbit like a hot-pink meteor, offering Charlotte a ticket to something else: popularity. Amanda is fearless, beautiful, brilliant, and rich. As her new side kick, Charlotte is brought into the elite clique of the debate team—and closer to Neal, Amanda's equally brilliant friend and the most perfect boy Charlotte has ever seen.

But just when senior year is looking up, Charlotte’s life starts to crumble. The more things heat up between Charlotte and Neal, the more Neal wants to hide their relationship. Is he ashamed? Meanwhile, Amanda is starting to act strangely competitive, and she's keeping a secret Charlotte doesn't want to know.

Talented newcomer Alexa Martin delivers a poignant story of first love, jealousy and friendship, where the ups and downs of senior year have never been so complicated. What else can Charlotte do but throw her hands up and ride?
