She's So Dead To Us (He's So/She's So Trilogy #1)

Title: She's So Dead To Us (He's So/She's So Trilogy #1)
Author: Kieran Scott
Rating: 5/5
Summary: Perfect, picturesque Orchard Hill. It was the last thing Ally Ryan saw in the rear-view mirror as her mother drove them out of town and away from the shame of the scandal her father caused when his hedge fund went south and practically bankrupted all their friends -- friends that liked having trust funds and new cars, and that didn't like constant reminders that they had been swindled. So it was adios, Orchard Hill. Thanks for nothing.
Now, two years later, Ally's mother has landed a job back at the site of their downfall. So instead of Ally's new low-key, happy life, it'll be back into the snake pit with the likes of Shannen Moore and Hammond Ross.
But then there's Jake Graydon. Handsome, wealthy, bored Jake Graydon. He moved to town after Ally left and knows nothing of her scandal, but does know that he likes her. And she likes him. So off into the sunset they can go, right? Too bad Jake's friends have a problem with his new crush since it would make Ally happy. And if anyone deserves to be unhappy, it's Ally Ryan.
Ally was hoping to have left all the drama in the past, but some things just can't be forgotten. Isn't there more to life than money?
My Thoughts:  She's So Dead to Us is a thoroughly fun read! Ally Ryan has had to move out of her mansion on "the Crest" in disgrace. When her family slunk out of their house to avoid creditors, she never had a chance to say goodbye to her friends. Now that she's moving back to her old town, even though she knows that things have changed, she's hoping that her friends will look beyond her father's actions and see her for the person that she's always been. 

Things aren't that simple - and as the title of the book suggests, Ally Ryan's status has markedly changed. Fortunately, she's retained her sense of humor, her biting wit, sense of self, amazing physical prowess, and good looks. Ally Ryan poor still attracts the boys' attention just as she always did - but this time the rich boys aren't willing to be seen with her.  I enjoyed this book immensely!
