Here's the set-up:

When fifteen-year-old Sonya Garrison is accepted into the prestigious Bridgeton Academy, she soon discovers that rich girls are just as dangerous as the thugs in her home of Venton Heights. Maybe more so. 

After catching the eye of the star, white basketball player and unwittingly becoming the most popular girl in school, she earns the hatred of the three most ruthless and vindictive girls at Bridgeton. 

Can she defeat the reigning high school royalty? Or will they succeed in ruining her lifelong dream of becoming a world class dancer?

From the reviewers:

The Queen Bee of Bridgeton (Dancing Queen #1) by Leslie DuBois was a feel good YA novel. Fifteen year old Sonya Garrison attends the private school Bridgeton Academy and longs to be a famous dancer. She is bullied continuously by girls at her school. Through the novel, she becomes involved with a basketball player and becomes instantly popular. With the ways things are nowadays in schools with bullying, this novel hit it on the head. Loved it. 

I like it that it's told from a black girl's perspective. Most of the novels I read are told from a white character's perspective, and as much as I enjoy those novels, it's nice to read something that's not about someone who is the same ethnicity as myself.
