The Lovereading4Kids comment

Reed Brennan has become public enemy number one and along with the Academy someone is trying to see them both go down. But who? Reed must find out and come up with a plan, and fast. Combining the bitchy snobbery of the elite and wealthy with secrets, mystery and satire, teens will love it so much so that they’ll spend less time on their computers!

As sharp and addictive as the Gossip Girls, this is the 7th 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.
