When Pasquala Rumalda Quintana de Archuleta (Paski)'s cartoonist father returns to Taos from a business trip wearing designer sunglasses and a velour Juicy men's track suit, she knows her life is taking a turn for the worse. Paski and her father move to Southern California, where his comic strip has been optioned for a movie.

At her new high school, money is everything and the haters rule - especially beautiful and cruel Jessica Nguyen. While Paski tries to concentrate on mountain biking and not thinking too much about ultra-hot Chris Cabrera, she is troubled by disturbing visions. Her psychic grandmother warned her that ignoring her gift of premonitory visions would lead to trouble. Can Paski ever find a home in the land of the glamorous haters?

Typical story of nice girl who moves to new school and is victimized by rich, beautiful, athletic, ruthless bad girl who rules the new school. Of course, the new girl wins the bad girl's boyfriend (the hottest guy in school) wins the motocross race after the bad girl is injured and is probably soon to be a rich girl herself.

The book starts out promising but too much is crammed in at the end especially the totally unrealistic idea that someone who has never done motocross before could win a regional race. Also, there is truly dangerous and illegal behaviors engaged in by the bad, popular crowd that I think teens themselves would never stand for. With the large amount of good fiction writing for young adults these days, best to skip this one.
