First of all, this cover is love. It’s so gorgeous! I have to be honest and say that the cover attracted me to this book. GORGEOUS. Anyways, I want to thank netgalley and penguin for letting me read this book for my honest review.
This story jumps in multiple time frames. It starts off as Charlie as a teen where she gets word that she is in the runnings for jumping into a secret society at her school. She has to prove herself to join and she is willing to do so. You jump back into time to learn that her mother has gone missing when she was a child and her father, a rich real estate mogul, was thought to have killed her. Will we find out what happened to her mother? Will she make it into the secret society? Will it ruin her to work so hard to get in?
Sorry, was not a fan of this. This was like a total rip-off of Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and genres much like it. The whole secret “A” society, the buried secrets of the past…it goes on and on. I’m definitely not a fan of these because it’s just so unrealiztic to me. I was not attracted to any of the characters. The missing mother part was the only thing that kept me reading, and even then I just ended up skipping to the end to find out what happened. I couldn’t keep reading it otherwise. I’m all about thrillers, but this was not worth it. Not my cup of tea, sorry.
