Summary from Publisher:
When Anne learns that her boyfriend Brent’s dad is one of the now-powerful Wheatley alumni who rowed crew with Matthew, and that the crew team continues to induct new members with a creepy-sounding ritual called “The Drop,” she knows further investigation could put her relationship with Brent in danger.
Determined to discover the truth, she reaches out to Anthony, Isabella’s townie brother, who helps her delve deeper into the secrets in Wheatley’s past. Secrets someone would kill to keep hidden. As the school’s Spring Formal—and its notorious afterparty—approaches, Anne sees the perfect opportunity to do some off-campus digging into the lives of Wheatley’s VIPs in this thrilling, unputdownable read—but if she’s not careful, she’ll be the next student who never comes back.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Prep School Confidential and realized I never read the other two books in the series and I have no idea why! So I changed that.
And I enjoyed this book as much as the first. It still has an amazing heroine. Anne is funny and inquisitive. She doesn’t give up, even when she totally should. She isn’t a bad person, and she is really trying to be better, but things get in the way, things like murder.
At times, mysteries like this can feel unrealistic, but for some reason I bought these ambitious people being capable of murder. It doesn’t go too far, like sometimes Revenge did, but it is what you think some rich and powerful people do.
I still felt like some of the romance was tacked on and I didn’t really buy the love triangle, but it felt like teenage romance that doesn’t always work.
This is a series that needs SO much more attention than it has because it is SO good!
