Sugar Rush
Julie Burchill
"Oh, I,m not your friend." My savior looked surprised. "It's just that this is MY school. I'm Maria Sweet -- Sugar. If you get bullied, it'll be when I say so." When Kim has to transfer from her posh school to Ravendene Comprehensive, the notoriously violent local school, she's scared -- but then she meets Maria Sweet, better known as Sugar. Sugar is beautiful and wild, the queen bee of Ravendene, and Kim falls under her spell. They're gorgeous party girls, envied and admired by everyone. But as Kim leaves her good-girl past far behind, she realizes she's falling in love -- with her best friend. Funny, sexy, and provocative, this is a compulsively readable first novel for young adults by Britain's most famous and controversial journalist.

"Sugar Rush" by Julie Birchill is not a book I'd let my kids read, if I had kids. In fact, it's a book I wish I hadn't let myself read. It follows Kim's move from her old school to a new all-girls acadamy, to a new world full of new temptations, and to a new friend Maria Sugar, who eventually becomes her girlfriend.
