SR--Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Stohmeyer

Gigi decides to run for student rep, but she'll have to get over her fear of public speaking—and go head-to-head with gorgeous California Will. Bea used to be one of the best skiers around, until she was derailed. It could be time for her to take the plunge again. And Neerja loves the drama club but has always stayed behind the scenes—until now.
These friends are determined to show the world that smart girls really can get what they want—but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for. . . .

Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are three extremely intelligent girls who are on their way to Ivy League schools, but they are afraid that they might be missing out on what high school life is all about.  So, they make a pact.  They will each take on a challenge so that they can have people know them as people instead of as just brainy girls.  They meet new people and have new experiences, but they have to learn to deal with these new experiences while still being true to themselves.

This was a good book that I read really quickly.  It is great when the smart girls are also pretty and don't let either of those things go to their heads.  Definitely a good read--worth your time.
