The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a terrific teenage novel set in a US private school (or academy). When Reed wins a scholarship to the school she thinks her world is looking up but on arrival it’s clear she may well be bright but she comes from a very different background to everyone else there. Her lack of sophistication, wealth and apparent beauty leaves her out on a limb but her determination to succeed and to become a part of the inner circle of the ‘in crowd’ is her single objective but how? As Reed gets to know some of the students a little better, she also realizes there are a whole of secrets and skeletons in cupboards that, perhaps she’s better off not knowing. The author has an uncanny ability to get the characters under your skin, whether you like them or not.
As sharp and addictive as the Gossip Girls, this is the 1st title in the dark and sinister Private series. Set in Easton Academy, a co-ed boarding school where secrets and lies are all part of the curriculum. When Reed Brennan arrives she discovers that everyone is more sophisticated, more gorgeous and wealthier than she is. She feels like an outsider, looking in, until she meets the Billings Girls, the most powerful girls on campus. Reed vows to do whatever it takes to be accepted into their inner circle. But once she’s in, she discovers there’s more to the girls’ closets than designer clothes – they’re hiding skeletons too, and secrets which must be kept private. Whatever the cost.

Private: A Private Novel by Kate Brian
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.
