Fat, Hoochie, Prom Queen by Nico Medina

What does it take to be the queen?
Margarita "Madge" Diaz is fat, foxy, and fabulous. She loves herself, and is adored by almost everyone else...except queen bee/student-body president Bridget Benson. These two girls have a history that's uglier than a drag queen after last call. During a heated argument, they decide there's only one way to end their rivalry: be named prom queen and the other backs off -- for good.
Of course, everything looks different in the sober light of morning, but pride is at stake and the race is on. Madge is committed to doing whatever it takes to secure the title, but so is Bridget. And everyone's got something to hide.
Welcome to Winter Park High School, where the dirt's not just gonna's gonna go into freakin' orbit.

First let me say: I FUCKING LOVE NICO MEDINA! *Ahem* Fanboy moment aside. I did truly love this book. And just like in Nico's first book 'Straight Road To Kylie' he keeps up the crazy antics and drama. But this story is told by a spicy, Puerto Rican, Bootyilicious Margarita Diaz. And is set in the same Winter Park High School one year later. Sorry Kiddies, Jonathan is gone, but he makes a surprise visit, so don't worry. Along for the ride is Madge's best friend the Flamey Lucas. Gay right down to the bone, and dealing with love and Madge's crazy ideas.

Now Madge is pissed, Bridget and Madge used to be besties, but after Bridget Betrayed her 10 years ago, and humiliated her two years ago. Now is the time to return the favor. But it's gonna be hard running against a famous, popular, most beautiful girl in school and on TV. But at least she is gonna do it in sexy as can be clothes. Not only is Madge running for Prom Queen, she is helping Lucas with his man trouble and working on getting herself her own. All while trying to dig up dirt on Bridget.

And baby, we got all of the old cast making an appearance. Jonathan is in college, along with Laura. You see, Madge is tryin to set Lucas up with Jonathan, and get Prom Queen advice from Laura. Smart girl, but Jonathan has a boyfriend, (<_< Damn) And I'm sure you all know Kenny, well he ain't in college. He failed and is know in the 12th grade again. This Druggy is trying to get to Lucas and his money. *Shakes head.* Horrible I know, but great drama.

All in all, this book is one of the funniest I've read and although not the most realistic, i can defiantly see this happening. The only thing I wanna bitch about is the ending of Nico's books. They are just so Wrapped up, all nice with a bow. Everyone is friends and no hard feelings. Sure that happens in real life, but they aren't really friends. They just act fake to each other, at least that is how it is in my school. But whatever, the book was great. Funny as fuck, and made you really love the characters, even if they party a bit to hard and drink so much that they end up passing out on a football field with doughnuts. @_@ Yeah crazy shit in Nico's world.
