Secret Society

Secret Society

Secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets, secrets hurt someone. . . .

An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York's wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.

They didn't ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything—even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they're forced to get on the nape of their necks. Once they're part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It's all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.

Secret Society is really just a great suspense novel. The characters were flawless and the plot was amazing, believable and very interesting. As a first YA novel goes it was pretty crazy good, i mean everything about the book just fell together perfectly. The pieces fit nicely and the characters were not just annoying, rich brats. Phoebe abd Nick were the cutest couple ever and Lauren had a lot of depth to her. Patch was really different too, he had this kind of back round plot going on which i always anticipated reading. Secret Society had this very creepy thing going on that wasn't terrifying but just made me really uncomfortable for the characters.

What i really liked this about this novel was the great balance of mystery and romance and family situations. It had all types of topics that it touched on that it didn't seem to pushy on anyone thing, it was a good, light, easy read. I recomend it for anyone looking for a good mystery and im definitly waiting for the next installment in this series!

Yours Truly,

  8. I think what you posted was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little information?
    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Secret Society" is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post headlines to
    grab people to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
