Brinkley's bullying has caused four students to leave school this year alone. To keep from being expelled, Brinkley Harper agrees to go to therapy.

She expects the therapist to sign off on her treatment right away so she can continue to devote her full time to being the school's Queen Bee. It's annoying that the therapist doesn't understand that she doesn't need therapy. Sending her is just a ploy the principal is using to keep from being forced to expel her.

Brinkley is rich, beautiful, and catered to by everyone. She's also sarcastic, hateful and narcissistic. Her therapist works in unusual ways to ensure that Brinkley develops empathy. Brinkley is forced to spend a little time in the bodies of students she never acknowledges except with catty, hurtful comments.

Eventually, there's the expected turn around. This well-meaning fantasy makes some good points and is an easy, entertaining read.
