Review: Georgetown Academy Book Two

Georgetown Academy: Book Two
 
In the halls of Georgetown Academy, gossip and rumor abound. But when photographic proof shows up on the front page of The Huffington Post? Then it’s a national scandal.

While Ellie tries to put her life back together, Evan just might get everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect boyfriend and her dream career. But her loyalties will be put to the test when it turns out to be the very people she’s closest to who are standing in her way.

Brinley is determined to find out who is behind the photo leak, all while her own dirty secret spirals out of control. And California girl Taryn is sick of being walked all over and ready to start playing by the rules of D.C., for better or for worse.

In a world where reputation and appearances are everything, knowledge is power. But you’ll have to learn how to use it if you want to come out on top.

What’s Cool from Coliloquy:
As the Georgetown Academy girls get ready for Follow the Stars, authors Alyssa and Jessica let readers decide which of the main girls to follow. You’ll see scandalous behavior, unexpected liaisons, and secret betrayals...all giving you a different perspective as events unfold.

Kat's Review

I'm enjoying this series because the books are short, the storyline moves at a great pace, and the drama of privileged teenagers is second to none.  We met the kids of Georgetown Academy in book one, and got sucked into the world of their exclusive high school where most students were the children of American politicians.  The teen drama is linked to the political ambitions of their parents, making every misstep the stuff of national news.  We left off from the first book with Brinley on top, Taryn finding herself the victim of a vicious rumor, and  Ellie caught in a photo scandal, locked in an embrace with the son of her mother's political rival. 

Book Two picks up on the drama as the students get ready to attend a charity event.  The dynamics shift as Brinley's little secret is exposed, Taryn makes a social faux pas that works out for the best, and Ellie gets a second chance with Hunter.  Only not everything goes according to plan.  Old friendships are put to the test, new alliances are forged, and secrets are brought to the surface. 

Rating:  A Good Read

Much like the first book, this is a book to be read in one sitting, like devouring a gossip magazine.  It's high school drama at its best, with backstabbing friends, misunderstandings and broken hearts, all wrapped up in the privileged world of Washington's elite.  What's not to like?
