January 15th, 2014 StoryStarter prompt: The new girl at school stirred things up with a website where she rated her dates with the guys in the class...

Everyone was used to the status quo. You were popular, you sat at the popular kids' table at lunch. You weren't popular, you often avoided the lunchroom altogether. People knew their social pecking order and no one dared to cross the boundaries.

Until the new girl came to town. Her name was Madison Denton. She was an extremely attractive eighteen-year-old brunette with perfect teeth, crystal-clear green eyes, and her legs were longer than some people were tall. Madison came to Square Peg in January of her senior year after moving in with her father and his new wife. It wasn't a choice she would have made, but like so many other things in her life this past year, not much was.

When Madison swept into town, the boys sat up and took notice. A fact that didn't sit well with the already established hierarchy of who belonged to who, who was available, and who was completely off limits. The thing about Madison was, she didn't care what the rules were. She was here to graduate and then move back to San Diego where all of her friends were.

It was only a game to Madison. She had no interest in dating for keeps. But when queen bee -- Raylan Andrews -- casually suggested to Madison who she could and could not date...Madison had told Raylan to screw herself, she'd date whomever she chose and wasn't about to ask Raylan -- or anyone else's -- permission to do so.

Three weekends and five dates with five different boys later, Madison had started a website where she rated her dates with the boys in her class. It was hilarious, it was snarky, it was rude, and it was above all else...painfully honest.

On a scale of one to ten, she proceeded to rate them and explained why.

Kyle Bennett: Six. He drank like a fish and kissed like one, too.
Decker Lodge: Three. He conveniently left his wallet at home and turned into an octopus on the way home.
Sam Tidewater: Seven. Perfect gentleman, but he fell asleep during the movie.

To say she caused quite a stir, would be an understatement.
