Smart Boys & Fast Girls by Stephie Davis

From the back of the book...
"Natalie Page is overlooked and unappreciated. Yeah, sure, she can run fast. Yeah, sure, all the boys
love her... as a buddy. Yeah, she has plans every weekend night... with her friends and their boyfriends.

It's time for the world to sit up and take notice. When Natalie makes the varsity cross country team, it seems like the fast track to being cool. The popular girls notice her, the hunky captain of the boys team is giving her rides home. Natalie Page is off and running.
Then she starts to fail geometry. She has to get a tutor: a very annoying boy who thinks sports are for idiots. A very smart boy who thinks she's stupid. A very cute boy who already has a girlfriend and has no interest in her. A boy she told her parents she was dating.
Natalie Page can run. Now she has to decide how to finish."

LBD: Friends Forever! by Grace Dent

From the book jacket...
"It's meant to be a perfect summer for Ronnie, Fleur, and Claude -- known far and wide as Les Bambinos Dangereuses, or LBD for short. But the totally wicked Cressida Sleeth has set the girls at odds with one another, Ronnie's relationship with Jimi Steele has fallen apart (again), and Claude may have to move far away. Oh man, life's harsh!
But Fleur comes up with the perfect solution to jump-start their shaky summer -- waitressing at an ultra-fab resort hotel in sunny Destiny Bay. It looks like a summer of suntans, barbecues, scrumptious surfers, and best of all, the hottest party of the summer, the Big Beach Booty Quake. In other words, snogfest central!
The girls soon find out that working for the uber-strict Miss Scrumble is no picnic. Will the LBD be able to escape their grueling jobs for some fun in the sun? Will Ronnie find true love with a certain dreamy surfer boy? And can the LBD raise enough money to keep Claude from having to move away? One thing's for sure: no matter what, the LBD will be friends forever!"
