Reagan West has a perfect life. She’s at the top of the high school food chain as co-captain of the cheerleading squad and she’s best friends with the most evil girl in Albany, Tawny Perez, which means she’s never on the receiving end of her wrath. The only trouble in Reagan’s perfect life comes from the constant threat of her dirty little secret leaking to her fellow classmates and casting her into a lifetime of ridicule.

Reagan West is a closet gamer and hates her role as the evil cheerleader.

But, as any well versed teenager knows, it’s better to suppress your own nerdy tendencies than to submit to a lifetime of being shoved into lockers and so, Reagan bravely soldiers through life as a reluctant bully… until a boy from her guild moves to her school and becomes Tawny’s next target. The newcomer threatens to reveal Reagan’s nerdy little secret and force her to come to terms with who she truly is. Now Reagan has to decide if she’s going to defend her fellow geeks, or if she’ll continue to be a total troll.

My Thoughts:
Shannen Crane Camp is such a fun author! Love her. If you like Janette Rallison then you’ll like Shannen Crane Camp.

The voice of Reagan cracked me up from the very beginning. She was pretty silly at times, especially at the beginning. She was insecure with skewed priorities. Not a great combination. At least the reason why she acted the way she did was explained even if I didn’t think it was the best choice. But hey, it’s fun to watch a character grow. Paker/Rekap was awesome, such a great friend and a good looking “nerd.”

This wasn’t a super intense book that I just couldn’t put down, but when I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it and wondering what was going to happen next in Reagan’s life. I’ve never played an online computer game, but that didn’t matter. Reading about a hard-core gamer was like reading a book with a soccer player main character when you don’t play soccer. It was fun to learn a little more about gaming, a world on its own.

Read Pwned whether you game or not. It was laugh out loud funny and a fun insight into high school life.
