Haley's back at Hillsdale High after a New England vacation with her family. She's got a new haircut and some great new clothes, but the same problems--and the same people--continue to follow her. Coco and Whitney want to groom her to become the next Coquette now that they've kicked Sasha to the curb, but is Haley ready to make the changes they demand? Meanwhile, Sasha seems to be in serious trouble, and Irene is still willing to take Haley to San Francisco with her. So many possibilities! So many choices! Haley's future is in your hands--choose wisely!
I read Choose Your Destiny novels a bit differently than most people. When I come to a choice, I tear off a small piece of paper and mark the page, so once I make it all the way through I go back and go through each choice until I've completed them all. It does take a little while, but I like to see all of the various combinations and stories I can get! This one was kind of odd, in that each group of people was so drastically different. I find it hard to believe that Haley can conceivably be friends with all of these different people. Overall, I liked the Irene and San Francisco storyline the best because it was nice to bring in old friends while keeping her new ones.
