A Girl Called Malice by Aurelia B Rowl

It's not easy being the Queen Bee. Alice Taylor should know. 

You know that girl. The one that the whole school's social life seems to revolve around. Alice used to be that girl until she decided to quit sixth form college. Suddenly her 'friends' aren't so interested in following her around and her attention-grabbing behaviour is about to get her kicked out of home. With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, her world starts spiralling seriously out of control.

Only new friend Zac Newton seems to believe in her. Lifeguard and poolside hottie, Zac is quite literally her lifesaver. But then, he's never met 'Malice', her mean-girl alter ego, and Alice wants to keep it that way. She knows this is her last chance for a fresh start until her sordid past catches up with her at the worst possible moment.

As everything Alice has worked towards comes crashing down around her, she realises that the hardest thing of all is being yourself...


A Girl Called Malice is the second book in the Popping the Cherry series. I highly recommend the first book, so I would advise you to read it before starting this one. A Girl Called Malice could be read as a stand alone story, but if you can have twice as much fun why wouldn't you?!
Alice is the mean girl who always tried to make Lena's life a living hell. She's definitely earned her nickname Malice by being vindictive and vicious. She decides to drop out of college and is working at a hotel instead, which means she's no longer the school's worst bitch. Both her enemies and her so-called friends are happy to be rid of her. She's all alone and has nobody to turn to. Fortunately there's Charlie, the only family member she likes. He's four years old and he's the center of her world. When she's with him Alice can let her guard down. Then she's sweet, kind and lovely. She meets Zac at one of these moments and he's the only person besides Charlie who's seen the real Alice. When she no longer has a roof over her head Alice is fortunate enough to be able to stay with Zac. Together they're making some much needed changes in her life. Unfortunately she can't erase her past. Will Alice succeed in starting over or is it too hard to show people who she really is?
A Girl Called Malice isn't a light and cute romance, but I flew through it nonetheless. I couldn't put it down. Alice is intriguing and I couldn't wait to find out more about her. There are two sides to every story and I'm glad Aurelia B Rowl decided to tell Alice's version as well. Her path crosses with Lena's again and I liked the way things developed. Alice has a lot to hide from everyone around her. She has to live with so many secrets that they have changed her into someone who's insensitive. She causes pain and she lashes out. Even though there's a good reason for that behavior she takes full responsibility and doesn't hide behind the injustice that's been done to her. I liked that about her. I actually liked a lot of things about Alice. It was also really nice to read more about Zac. He's such a nice guy, but there's a lot more to him than just a kind personality, and he's got his priorities straight. He's wise as well, but that doesn't mean he can't mess things up. There's a lot he needs to discover about the girl that dropped into his life. I can only say good things about this book and the ending of A Girl Called Malice is amazing, I read it with tears in my eyes.
