Summary: Eliza is in a full-blown panic. Her notebook has been stolen—the one that lists everything she wants but is afraid to go after. And the absolute worst person in the world has it: her ex-boyfriend, Cooper.

Like it’s not enough Cooper was lying to Eliza for their entire relationship, now he and his friends are blackmailing her. They’re giving her just one night to complete the most humiliating tasks on her list or they’ll post her secrets online—including the ones that aren’t just about her.

Eliza’s sure of only one thing: she isn’t going down without a fight. Cooper may have what’s left of her dignity, but she’s not the only one with something to hide …

Review: This book was really entertaining. What drew me in was the plot. It sounded really funny. When I read it, I wasn't disappointed. I thought the author, Lauren Barnholdt, developed each of the characters very well. I read this book pretty fast because I was eager to find out what happened next. The main character, Eliza, had written down a list of things in a notebook that she is scared to do. When her ex-boyfriend and his group, the 318's, steal her notebook, they make her do some of the things on her list. If she doesn't listen to them, then they would post that list online. I would hate to be in her situation. Before this happens, she found out that her boyfriend Cooper, was dating her because of a dare. I won't give anything away, but I will say that the ending was really cute. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good book. I didn't like that there was a lot of language, though. I gave this book four coffee cups. Great book!
