Top Ten Clues You're Clueless, by Liz Czukas
It's a cute idea. Occurring in a fairly tight space and being dialogue-heavy, the story has the feeling of a play. As such, it relies hard on the strength of the characters who are a predictable mix of types (good girl, dyke, home-schooled geek, etc.). Thankfully, they are deeper than that and the fun in the book is getting to see them break through the stereotypes.
It is a brisk fast read, yet still ran a bit long for my taste, simply because it doesn't have much to say. And I never quite figured out the connection between the title and the story. It did, however, put me in the mood to watch those two aforementioned films again (http://www.cashbackfilm.com/ and I assume you know how to find the other one!).
