Summary: (Amazon)
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.

My Thoughts:
I found the plot of this book to be awesome! Not only was it unique but it kept changing. I felt that some characters could have been developed a little bit better but most of them were pretty well done.

I got some swag with this book. They were lovely tattoos. I wore one while reading the book so that made me feel even cooler. Everyone will be able to connect with this book though, tattoo or not!
