Secret Society

by Tom Dolby

Pub. date: September 09
"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."


I discovered this on La Femme Readers when Eleni was having a contest for it. I don't think I'd read what it was aout until then, and as soon as I did, I wanted it! It sounds really interesting! And let's not forget the simple fact that secret societies are cool. ;)
I will definitely have to get this soon.

I've been wanting to read this book since I first heard about it. :)

Since you have eclectic tastes, then you may like my new release, Angela 1: Starting Over, which is the complete opposite kind of story. The central character of this story (the first in a series of three set in a coastal Texas high school) is a stable, no-nonsense kind of person who nonetheless suffers from self doubt and gets herself into big trouble by thinking that adults should live up to what they profess.
