Glamour and gloss are the hallmarks of exclusive Easton Academy but under the gloss, there are some very sinister goings on… Reed Brennan is back for a new year of school and needs to bury the traumas of the past year behind her. With a new headmaster in place it looks like many of the worst initiation ceremonies will be abolished and reed begins to feel safe. But there are some who don’t want to change the old ways… A chilling and thrilling high school novel.

As sharp and addictive as the Gossip Girls, this is the 5th 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.

Inner Circle: A Private Novel by Kate Brian

In the fifth book of the Private series, how will life at Billings be now that everything has changed? Set in a world of exclusive boarding schools, Kate Brian's compelling new series combines the bitchy snobbery of the elite and wealthy with a Heather-esque element of dark secrets, mystery, and satire.
