The price of power... After Cheyenne Martin's death, everyone at Easton Academy is struggling to recover from yet another tragedy--especially the girls of Billings Hall. With Cheyenne gone, they need to elect a new leader. And who better than Reed Brennan, the ultimate Billings Girls? As the new Billings president, Reed suddenly has access to power she never imagined. Gossip is reported to her immediately, she has first dibs on everything from dining tables to dorm rooms, and Billings's most powerful alumnae are at her beck and call. So when Easton's students discover they're the only prep school on the East Coast not invited to this year's all-inclusive Legacy party, everyone turns to Reed to get them back on the list. Reed is the most powerful girl at Easton. She revels in her newfound status, but knows better than anyone that the Bilings leaders have a tainted legacy: Ariana was institutionalized, Noelle was expelled, and Cheyenne just died. History has a way of repeating itself at Easton, and now that Reed has everything she's ever wanted, she has everything to lose.
I really liked this book. I guess because I am kind of materialistic so the idea of it being based around this amazing party really drew me in.
I liked the overall plot of the book. It was fast-paced and I was never bored of it.
One thing that really did bug me though was how much Reed was turning into one of the Billings Girls, which I can understand is supposed to happen, but it was supper annoying.
For example, Reed would be extremely rude to everyone just because one of the original Billings girls was around. So she blew off her boyfriend and was blowing off her friends because of this girl. I could not stand this because it was so annoying how much she thought it was okay. I wanted to walk into the book and slap her in the face.
The ending made me so upset I seriously could not deal. I need to go read the next one, like right away.
