Lele sits alone at lunch until, overnight, her digital fame catapults her into popularity in high school. Suddenly, she goes from the bullied loser to the most popular kid in school. She now has to deal with the trials of the cliques, the drama, the boys, the girls -- all while keeping her grades up and making her parents proud. Can she graduate without making a mess of things? Speaking to the new generation of teens – digitally savvy and connected, yet still facing the same universal teenage issues – rejection, loyalty, popularity, and um, why is it that our iPhones can survive a car crash but break when we place them on the coffee table? Lele shows us with zest, enthusiasm and self-deprecating silliness that the kids are all right. Vine superstar Lele Pons's debut novel, co-written with established bestselling YA author Melissa de la Cruz, is the hilarious, heartfelt story of a girl with the looks of a cheerleader and the personality and humour of a lovable dork, who navigates the wilds and wonders of high school in sunny Florida.
Lele Pons was born in Caracas and moved with her family to Miami when she was five years old. She grew from five thousand local followers to over ten million by November 2015 and is the creator of the popular “Do it for the Vine!” tagline. She has been nominated for three Teen Choice Awards, a People’s Choice Award, and a Streamy Award and has been featured in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Teen Vogue, Time, and more. In 2015, she was invited to the White House to create Vines to support the First Lady’s campaign for disadvantaged kids to go to college. Lele graduated from high school in 2015 and moved from Miami to L.A.
