Geeky Ella Reyes is at the bottom of the totem pole at Westwood High. Her ultra-popular stepsisters refuse to be seen with her at school, and every day she comes home to a mountain of chores.

Ella’s only friend (and maybe crush) lives on the other side of her phone’s screen. She and Baller929 know everything about each other, except their real names.

When they have a chance to meet at her school’s Halloween ball, Ella must figure out a way to get there without her stepmom or stepsisters finding out.

Is revealing her identity to Baller929 worth risking the one good thing left in her life? Or is he too good to be true?


Baller929 went to Westwood High School? My phone fell from my hands. This was impossible.

Super cute! This story reminded me in many ways of the movie A Cinderella Story with Hillary Duff and Chad Michael Murray. There are also many ways that it’s not the same. But we have Ella who lost her dad on her eleventh birthday. From then on she lived with her stepmother and two stepsisters.

One day while volunteering to help students with homework over the student server, she helped Baller929 who was then Baller23. Since that day the two became close friends.

Again super cute YA. It’s almost puke adorable if you catch my drift. I’ll put the second book on my TBR list.
