Wickedly funny high school satire – what would you give to be popular? Ally and Jane may not be that popular but they’re good friends…that is until they each get allocated a freshman, a ‘little’ to show the ropes to at school. Cracks begin to show as Ally changes into a whole different person, literally overnight. She’s dressed better, making new friends, and ditching Jane more and more. But Ally’s transformation has its price. And it’s up to Jane to save her former BF from a ponytail-wearing, cupcake-nibbling devil in disguise!
Jane and Ally have been best-friends for a long time, they are complete opposites though, Ally is popular(ish), smart and quirky, Jane is a little dull, not as intelligent as her friend and definitely not as popular, she actually is a little socially awkward. There is a new younger kid at school, Jane shows her the ropes and that’s when Ally starts to notice a chance in her friend.
Jane starts acting differently, she becomes more confident, starts wearing better clothes and starts making new friends – very un-Jane like behavior. But everything comes at a very high price and it’s left up to Ally to uncover the unexpected truth and try and put a stop to a cupcake bearing devil, before it’s too late…
The ending clinched it for me, it really was expectantly brilliant. Devilish is one of them books that is just plain fun and will definitely put a smile on your face, what more could you ask for?
