Madison Macdonold has a pretty amazing life, some would say that it is close to perfect. She has three awesome best friends, a very cute boyfriend, and the lead in the school play. Madison goes away on her spring break vacation for two weeks and comes back to find that her Friendverse profile has been hacked and the hacker has left things that only she knew about. There were also a lot of horrible comments and blog post made and the worst picture of her that has ever been taken. The hacker also broke up with her boyfriend Justin. Madison at least has her best friends on her side, as they search for who could of hacked her profile and try to clean up some of the damage.
Madison is a fairly likable character. She was very caring and sweet at times and wanted to do the best for her friends. I could relate to her, because we all make mistakes. Liza and Shy were awesome friends. I loved Liza's obsession with France and her random French. Shy was really cute and I loved that she got a romance with Conner. Nate was very awesome and sweet. He had awesome taste in movies and music.
The layout of the book was really epic, because it had her profile and showed how her Top Eight was constantly changing. I really liked the message that it shared about gossiping and that harmless comments tend to about other people tend to hurt you more. The plot of Top 8 was really fun and cute. I laughed at a few parts. I found how this book deals with new media to be original. I also loved the quotes that were posted and a lot of the songs that were posted in the beginning of each chapter in the book. Finn was a fun writer that created a great book that made me giggle and anticipate what would happen next. I found this book to be really cute and a quick read and would recommend this book as a fun read.
