Summary: (from goodreads) As if transferring senior year weren't hard enough, Charlotte Locke has been bumped to lower level classes at her new school. With no friends, a terrible math SAT score, and looming college application deadlines, the future is starting to seem like an oncoming train for which she has no ticket.

Then Amanda enters her orbit like a hot-pink meteor, offering Charlotte a ticket to something else: popularity. Amanda is fearless, beautiful, brilliant, and rich. As her new side kick, Charlotte is brought into the elite clique of the debate team—and closer to Neal, Amanda's equally brilliant friend and the most perfect boy Charlotte has ever seen.

But just when senior year is looking up, Charlotte’s life starts to crumble. The more things heat up between Charlotte and Neal, the more Neal wants to hide their relationship. Is he ashamed? Meanwhile, Amanda is starting to act strangely competitive, and she's keeping a secret Charlotte doesn't want to know.

Talented newcomer Alexa Martin delivers a poignant story of first love, jealousy and friendship, where the ups and downs of senior year have never been so complicated. What else can Charlotte do but throw her hands up and ride?

Girl Wonder was a book that too me a bit to get into, the is pretty much why I couldn't give it the 4 tree rating. Now as far as the ending, its completely made up for the beginning. Still I have to be fair. The characters  had me at times connected with them and at other time not too much. They do progress in a lovely  way. This book is one of those that can be related to easily since it feels like a realistic setting. You will be sad, happy and laughing throughout this novel. 

You meet Charlotte who moves with her family to the Pacific Northwest. She will start a new high school on her senior year. She is a smart girl but with a learning disability called dyscalculia. Which means Charlotte is lost when it comes to math. So throw all that together, starting new school with learning disability and its makes out for a difficult ride. So will she be able make it thru her senior year and will she get accepted into college. Well you will just have to pick up this book to find out. A very cute, adorable read.
