The Market by J.M. Steele (2008)
It's every teen girl's nightmare: her social value posted on the Internet for all to see. That's what happens to Kate Winthrop after she gets an anonymous IM that sends her to the homepage of the Millbank Social Stock Market. The bad news: she's ranked 71 out of 140. The good news: she's a smart girl and quickly rallies her forces (her two best friends) to game the market and ramp up her ranking. And she does, but at what cost? It's worth the read to find out. The market analogy gets explained somewhat pedantically but is no less apt to explore the forces at work in Kate's life as she deals with the ups and downs of her manipulations. Some language, sexual situations.
