Private: Invitation Only

Looking for a new addiction? I have found one for you in the Series titled Private. I just finished book two, Invitation Only and it was incredible. You may not know what your missing yet but oh you will soon.

Title: Invitation Only
Author: Kate Brian
Age: 14+
Rating: five of five

From the back:
Reed Brennan's future is looking as bright as the two-karat diamonds in her new housemates' ears. Being accepted to the most prestigious private boarding school in the country wasn't enough for Reed. She had to break every rule to do it, but she has accomplished the impossible:

Reed is a Billings Girl now.

And with her new status come respect, envy, and, most important, opportunity. Not to mention the parties. Unfortunately, at the next illicit party in the Easton campus woods, her roommate snaps some pictures of Reed in more than one compromising position. She uses the photos to blackmail Reed: Dig up dirt on the most powerful and popular Billings Girls or she will have Reed expelled.

And speaking of parties, the Legacy is coming up. It's the invitation-only Halloween party in NYC and it's rumored that Thomas -- Reed's MIA boyfriend -- will be making an appearance there. Too bad Reed isn't even close to invited.

Life as a Billings Girl is every bit as glamorous as Reed imagined. What she didn't bargain for is the tangled web of private lies these girls weave.

My thoughts:
I really enjoyed this novel. It had a sense of dark humor which is not always east to express. There are some mentions of sex so if you are a clean reader be for warned. Over all this was a quick read if you have time to read but I was finishing a book for school at the same time. I recommend this book to any Kate Brian fans along with girls who are up for a different type of book. You wont regret the time you spend reading it.
