Welcome to Belvoire, New Girl. Do you have what it takes to steal Queen Bee’s crown? Let the games begin <3

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...

Trivia

  • Mentions and references in Chapter 1 include Wonder Woman and Ariana Grande.
    • The process of choosing the appearance of Ian/Ina Kingsley contains a reference to The Bachelor (if a male version is chosen) or its spinoff The Bachelorette (if a female version is chosen). The versions are labelled Bachelor/ette 1-3 and the game asks if you accept the respective model's rose.
  • In Chapter 2, you can compare Ian/Ina to Batman. Poppy makes a reference to Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein when calling you FrankenBea and you, in turn, call her a dementor, a term that was repopularized by the creatures of the same name in the Harry Potter series. Chloe misunderstands and thinks you are talking about dementia.
  • Within the first hour after release, a content warning has been added to the book.[27]
  • Several names of the students shown on the ranking contain pop culture references. Examples include Ayre Bender (Air Bender), Karol Denver (Carol Danvers alias Captain Marvel), Natalia Romanoffa (Natasha Romanoff alias Black Widow), Steve Roget (Steve Rogers alias Captain America), Clint Burton (Clint Barton alias Hawkeye), Howard Deduque (Howard the Duck), Ernesto Pekutchu (Pikachu), and Rey Chu (Raichu). Burlington Coet-Faqtorite is a play on the company Burlington Coat Factory.
  • In the July Choices Insider, the writers stated they came up with all 263 student names. Their favorites include: Penny Weiss (Pennywise), Ashe Kushumall, Ambrosia Sallade (Ambrosia Salad), Fil DuFutur (Phil of the Future), Macy Deiparaide (Macy Day Parade), Begonia Thotte (Begone, Thot), Luke Wachadunne (Look Whatcha Done), Alfredo Zauss (Alfredo Sauce), and Mary Nara (Marinara).
  • In Chapter 5, more references include: Pocket Creature cards (Pokemon) and the author Jorge S.S. Martinez (George R.R. Martin). Professor Kingsley also buys the most recent book in D.E. Swanne's The Alchemicalists series. This may be a nod or a pun towards Dean Evelyn Swan and The Elementalists.
  • In Chapter 6, Your Character mentions the show Young Wulfe. This is likely a reference to the show Teen Wolf based on the movie of the same name.
  • Chapter 7 contains a reference to The Wizard of Oz when the narration states that "Toto, you are not in Farmsville anymore."
  • The narration in Chapter 8 confirms that the story is set in 2020.
  • Mentions and references in Chapter 8 include designer Franco Moschino (Zoey initially thinks you are talking about Maraschino liquor), the second time Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broke up, Seth Rogen, Josephine Baker, Hepburn (likely Audrey Hepburn), Half Light, the VMAs, and Cinderella. Also, DaBebe (possibly a variation on DaBaby) retweeted your hog calling video, leading to your desire to remove all of his songs from your playlists.
  • In Chapter 9, Benji's shrine of the MC is a reference to Helga's shrine of Arnold in Hey Arnold!
  • At the end of Chapter 16, it is confirmed that there will be a second book.
