Vanessa Carlisle is all set to cruise through her senior year. She just wants to get accepted to Yale so that she can attend with her boyfriend. Smart, leader of various school groups, and a successful teen, Vanessa has a lot going for her. But she doesn't like having her plans changed, and when her parents tell her that she has a brother who is coming to Chicago to attend senior year with her, she goes ballistic. Of course, having a previously unknown brother might not be so bad if the brother in question didn't happen to be wild child teen television star, Reed Vaughn, the popular star of Wild Dunes. Life as Vanessa knows it is now changed forever, and she's not happy about it.

Now fan girls are showing up at Vanessa's house, wanting to meet Reed. Vanessa's best friend is excited to meet the new star, and to top it all off, there's a new girl at school who becomes a rival for Vanessa's academic standing. Vanessa can't help wondering, what happened to her carefully plotted school year?


PLAN B is an exciting and heart-wrenching look at the curveballs life throws out. Vanessa is your average teen who is quite content in her normal life. Suddenly knowing she has a brother, a famous brother, creates all sorts of problems she didn't anticipate, but which she learns to handle with aplomb and grace. I liked how Jenny O'Connell didn't leave out the typical teenage stuff: whining, complaining, and hating one's parents, but she also highlighted the good things about adolescences, being able to experience new things, making new friends, and having new crushes. A healthy mix of reality and fantasy play out in PLAN B, making it a book you can't put down. It may be a teenager's drama, but there is truly something for every reader in this sweetly agonizing teen drama.
