Welcome to Belvoire, New Girl. Do you have what it takes to steal Queen Bee’s crown? Let the games begin <3?
Chapter 1: Know Your Enemy
Chapter 2: Damage Control
Looks like New Girl’s cracking open a cold one with the boy toys.
Chapter 3: Teacher's Pet
Who’s the other woman in Professor Kingsley’s life? My, how scandalous.
Chapter 4: Don't Hate the Players
You just have to take some battles to the field. Hope there’s enough glitter.
Chapter 5: Takers Keepers
Everyone knows that espionage must be done in fur coats.
Chapter 6: Keep Your Enemies Close
The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Yeah, sounds like bull to me.
Chapter 7: Dance With the Devil
Poppy just offered an olive branch. Better hope it's not sharp enough to stab you in the back.
Chapter 8: Lying Low
Maybe it's time to take a break from the limelight? For the first time ever, no news is good news.
Chapter 9: Under Cover
Secrets secrets are no fun. Well, sometimes. But not really.
Chapter 10: Not Your Hostage
The cost of celebrity is high. Now it's time for your breakout hit -- literally.
Chapter 11: The Naked Truth
What's more dangerous, swimming in shark-infested waters or Zeta house's annual bacchanalia? ...At least the latter has champagne!
Chapter 12: Life's A Beach
Nothing spells spring break like 'Martha's Vineyard' and 'my personal life's a raging garbage fire'.
Chapter 13: Blackmail and Besties
Queen B’s got the dirt, and you’ve got two choices. Let yourself get buried, or dig yourself out of your grave.
Chapter 14: Designer and Decorum
Word of advice, WannaBee. Next time you go snooping, wear a ski mask.
Chapter 15: Cross Your Fingers...
Lights, camera, action, you're the center of attention. Or you will be, if you play your cards right.
Chapter 16: ...And Watch Your Back
The winner is...
- This is one of the books that lets the player know beforehand which options are romantic or flirty and which are not. The first book with this system was Mother of the Year, followed by Blades of Light and Shadow and Distant Shores.
- The reputation level system is similar to the systems used in books like Platinum, and Blades of Light and Shadow, Book 1.
- Instead of "Tutorial", the tips for the game are called "Hot Tip"(s). They offer advice to the player to collect Posse Members and Reputation Boosts.
