So this week's book is....
Secret Society By: Tom DolbySummary (From HarperCollins):
Secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets, secrets hurt someone. . . .
An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York's wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.
They didn't ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything—even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they're forced to get on the nape of their necks. Once they're part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It's all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.
Tom Dolby makes his teen fiction debut with this riveting novel about a dangerous society so secret that once you get in, you can never get out.
Why I Want to Read This: These old socialite stories seem to be the next hot YA book topic. And this book is totally The Luxe. And I really need to read something that is very Luxe like before it comes out, or else I will explode! [I want to read the last one so badly!]
Also, I think the cover is really pretty, and I think it's cool that a guy is writing on a book type like this.
