Sometimes the truth hurts.... Reed Brennan came to superposh Easton Academy to make a brand-new life for herself. At first it seemed as though her dream had come true-she was living in the ultraexclusive Billings Hall, hanging out with the all-powerful Billings Girls, and dating the very hot Thomas Pearson. But Thomas turned out to be different from what she thought...and then he turned up dead. And if that wasn't twisted enough, Reed's new boyfriend, Josh Hollis, was arrested for Thomas's murder. Now everyone is back to worrying about the regular stuff, like how to sneak to the boys' dorms at night, whether two-ply cashmere is warm enough for fall, and whether to fly to London or Barcelona for Thanksgiving break. Everyone except for Reed. Reed is convinced that Josh is innocent, which means the killer is still out there. Now it's up to Reed to uncover the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more secrets she unearths and the closer she gets to the confession that will change everything... if she's alive to hear it.
Well, let's see... I still hate the covers. They seriously need to be burned, they are so ugly and boring.
The plot was a bit slow, I felt like the one issue they were trying to revise didn't take too long to revise, but then there was a slow plot after that.
Also, I hated the main character in this book. She was very rude and disrespectful...just like the Billings girls, no surprise there. I guess I just thought since she was so nice at the beginning of the series she should continue to be that way. Her attitude did improve for the most part as time progressed.
Overall I guess I liked this book, there isn't much to say. I am a little wary though of the next books in the series because this is already the fourth one and there are fourteen so it's like how much more can she add to the overall plot line?
Character Rating: 2/5
