Everlast (The Chronicles of Nerissette #1) - Andria Buchanan

The start of an exciting and adventurous new trilogy full of magic and a unique alternate world, Everlast proves that good intentions really do pave the road to perdition.

Sixteen-year-old Allie Munroe has only ever wanted to be accepted, to be popular even. The only problem is she can't quite manage whatever that thing is that makes people popular. She's nice, she's smart, and she's somewhat pretty. She even has two great friends - Winston and Mercedes - but that's not enough to make her popular. Or catch the eye of her crush Collin Harper, the school's hottest guy.

So when the chance to work with him and her friends on an English Literature project comes up she jumps at it. This would have been fine, if they hadn't ended up with a magical book that pulled them into a different realm.

Nerrissette is a realm where life is meant to be fair. Where your position in life is determined by what you deserve in return for your actions and your character, not by who your parents are or the clothes you wear. Which makes an orphaned misfit like Allie the Crown Princess, and her archrival Heidi (otherwise known as the girl who'd taken delight in bullying her ever since she moved to town) the scullery maid. It's a world where your every desire can be yours if only your heart is pure and your motives are good. Or is it?
