For a teen read Kate Brian really hit the spot with the first in the 'Private' series which we at Lovereading picked up on early. Now, with the second in the series beginning where the first left off, you should ideally read the first one before reading this one, but it's not absolutely essential. The protagonist of the story, Reed, is a feisty heroine but has she bitten off more than she can chew in Invitation Only as suddenly the people she thought were her friends don't seem to be so any longer and her boyfriend has disappeared. Something has to happen and of course it does...
As sharp and addictive as the Gossip Girls, this is the 2nd 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.
