Belle of the Brawl by Lisi Harrison

"Eccentric billionaire Shira Brazille founded the super-exclusive Alpha Academy to nurture the next generation of exceptional dancers, writers, musicians, and inventors. It's a dream come true for one hundred lucky girls, but those not measuring up will be sent home at any time, for any reason. The one left standing will win worldwide fame. Who will it be?

Skye Hamilton
For Skye, breaking boys' hears is easier than one-two-plie. But if she hurts emo-freak Sydney, Shira will send her packing. Skye's only choice? Make him dump her first! But how can she convince robo-Romeo she's not his Juliet?

Charlie Deery
Charlie's brilliant brain designed most everything on Alpha Island, but her broken heart could never get over Darwin Brazille. Now she has a chance to get him back. But to say hello to true love, she may have to say buh-bye to her friendship with Allie A. ...

Allie A. Abbott
After being exposed as an Allie J imposter, Allie A is as worthless as a five-time markdown on the clearance shoe rack. But the real stain on her suede bootie? She still hasn't found her talent. And with girls leaving faster than you can say 'beta,' will she be the next to go?

If at first you don't succeed, you're not an alpha."
First Lines:

As she sat in full lotus position on a silver blue yoga mat, Charlie Deery's Chap Sticked lips formed a perfect circle as she chanted the sacred sound of the universe. But while her mouth was saying om, her mind was screaming ommmhmuhgud."

I've loved this series from page one. Here are my reviews of the first two books:
Alphas (#1)
Movers and Fakers (#2)
I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone who loves fun chick lit. Harrison is a wonderful author and I'm happy to report that this third book was another great part of the story.

I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but one of my favorite things about this series is the setting. How cool would it be to live in a place that caters to your every possible need. Of course, you have to be the best of the best at whatever it is you're good at. But it would be an amazing place to live.

This story was much more about the boys than any of the other stories. Each of our characters has some sort of boy drama going on that interferes with their studies. There's also an emphasis on Allie A and her finding her specialty. Turning to acting is just a natural fit for her character and it's a lot of fun to follow her on her new journey.

I think this series is awesome for all teen girls - especially if you're into romance stuff. There's a lot about friendship as well which gives this story even more depth. I loved getting to know these girls even more. There friendships formed, lost, and found again. It's a great story.

I'll absolutely continue recommending these books to girls who are looking for the next great chick lit. So fun! The author's website is a lot of fun to look at as well. I'd highly recommend you taking a look at that as well. Enjoy!
