Fifteen-year-old Reed Brennan is delighted when she wins a scholarship to Easton Academy - it's the golden ticket out of her suburban life and away from her pill-popping mother.

But when she arrives at the beautiful, tradition-steeped campus, everyone is more sophisticated, more gorgeous and a WHOLE lot wealthier than she is.

Reed may have been accepted to the Academy, but she certainly hasn't been accepted by her classmates.

She feels like she's on the outside, looking in... until she meets the Billings Girls. They're the most beautiful, intelligent and powerful girls on campus. And, boy, do they know it. Reed vows to do whatever it takes to be accepted into their inner circle.

But once she's in, she discovers much more than designer clothes hiding in their closets - there are also plenty of skeletons...

Secrets which must be kept PRIVATE. Whatever the cost. This compelling series full of dark secrets, mystery and satire is a must for fans of Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars and Mean Girls� .

Review by

This is by no means my kind of book. It's a blatant girly book, and it screams Gossip Girls. I got it as a present last year and just got around to picking it up- wanting a light read.<br/><br/>It basically features 16 year old Reed, who moves away from her dysfunctional family to a posh, private school on a partial scholarship. Naturally, she's willing to do anything to fit in there. <br/><br/>It really, really surprised me. I was absolutely sucked in from the beginning. I thought Reed was very likable (though she could do with not changing her mind so often) and the plot kept me wanting to read more. <br/><br/>I'm not a major fan of the cliff-hanger ending, because I'd love to see what happens next, but it's a long series and I'm not sure I really want to read it. <br/><br/>I would, however, like to know what Brian's editor was on while going through this one. The mistakes throughout were just ridiculous. I fail to see how an ''I'' goes without being capitalized, or how sentences can be missing fairly vital words.<br/><br/>Over all though, very impressed with this one.
