The Other Girl

Sarah Miller. St Martin's Griffin, $16.99 (304p) ISBN 978-0-312-33415-4
Miller picks up where she left off with Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn, as Molly continues to be able to see the world—and hear the thoughts—of Gideon, her boyfriend at Midvale Prep boarding school. This allows her to know how to keep him happy (like which underwear to don when he sneaks into her room). But there are disadvantages, too, and when he conjures up a sexy image of school hottie Pilar at an inopportune moment, Molly decides she must break up with him. But then she finds herself in someone else's head: Pilar's. Readers will again find Molly's Midvale world full of bawdy talk, pot smoking, and naughty pranks, but they will appreciate the smart insights, too. As Pilar and Gideon start a relationship—and Molly bounces from her head to his—she learns that being the girl every boy dreams of has some serious disadvantages, and that she needs to stop trying to "make myself into whatever Gid was going to like." Some plotting is a bit farfetched, but mostly this is fun fare—and deeper than a typical prep school series. Ages 14—17. (Sept.)
