Poser by Sue Wyshynski

This book reads as a cross between the movie Mean Girls and Blue Crush.

Tenth grader Tallulah Jones lies to Jenna, the most popular girl at school that she is an expert surfer.  At the beach, Tallulah almost gets killed and her new found friends realize that she is a liar.  She starts to get harassed at school for being a “poser.”  Tallulah meets social outcast Katie who is a competitive surfer and is more interested in the waves, then fashion.  Katie teaches Tallulah how to surf and their friendship grows.  The story builds into suspense when Tallulah has to brave the ocean and the giant size waves to save Jenna’s life.  Teens will enjoy this laid back and fun to read story.  The attractive cover will also make it a big sell.
