The Lovereading4Kids comment

Billings leaders have always had a tainted legacy and when Reed is elected to be their new leader at the point at which she has everything she’s ever wanted, she also realises she has everything to lose and she’s about to find that out. Fast-moving drama in the boarding school of all boarding schools.

As sharp and addictive as the Gossip Girls, this is the 6th 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.

Legacy: A Private Novel by Kate Brian

History has a way of repeating itself... Set in a world of exclusive boarding schools, Kate Brian's compelling series, PRIVATE, combines the bitchy snobbery of the elite and wealthy with a Heather-esq element of dark secrets, mystery, and satire.
