Blurb from Goodreads:
The kids at Sam’s school never knew if they should make fun of her for being too smart or too dumb. That’s what it means to be dyslexic, smart, and illiterate. Sam is sick of it. So when her mom gets a job in a faraway city, Sam decides not to tell anyone about her little illiteracy problem. Without her paradox of a reputation, she falls in with a new group of highly competitive friends who call themselves the Brain Trust. When she meets Nate, her charming valedictorian lab partner, she declares her new reality perfect. But in order to keep it that way, she has to keep her learning disability a secret. The books are stacked against her and so are the lies. Sam’s got to get the grades, get the guy, and get it straight—without being able to read.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book. In this book you can relate to the characters, Sam goes through a lot of the same everyday issues that face new students everywhere. She tries to create a new her. She doesn't tell anybody about her disability and lets them all think that she is normal. Eventually all of her friends find out about her learning disability.

Towards the end of the book Sam has everything she wants the grades, the boy and friends that treat her no different then any of their other friends. She stays friends with her two best friends in San Diego. She also meets her dad for the first time in years.
