Overview

"This book rocks Scandalously delicious in the same vein as "Pretty Little Liars" and "Revenge," with a wickedly clever plot that kept me guessing right up until the end." -- Gemma Halliday, "New York Times" bestselling author of" Honeymoon in High Heels"

Anne Dowling practically runs her exclusive academy on New York's Upper East Side that is, until she accidentally burns part of it down and gets sent to a prestigious boarding school outside of Boston. Determined to make it back to New York, Anne could care less about making friends at the preppy Wheatley School. That is, until her roommate, Isabella's body is found in the woods behind the school. When everyone else is oddly silent, Anne becomes determined to uncover the truth no matter how many rules she has to break to do it. With the help of Isabella's twin brother Anthony, and a cute classmate named Brent, Anne discovers that Isabella wasn't quite the innocent nerdy girl she pretended to be. But someone will do anything to stop Anne's snooping in this fast-paced, unputdownable read even if it means framing her for Isabella's murder.

Kara Taylor's breathtaking debut reads like "Gossip Girl "crossed with "Twin Peaks" in an enveloping start to the Prep School Confidential series.

"A whirlwind of secrets, lies, and scandals. I whipped through the pages, frantic to discover the killer." Jill Hathaway, author of "Slide"

"Fast-paced, suspenseful and scarily believable. It will keep you guessing as you race to the end " -- Daisy Whitney, author of "The Mockingbirds" and "When You Were Here""

Trouble seems to follow high school junior Anne Dowling wherever she goes. In this case, it's from a New York City prep school (she was kicked out for accidentally setting the auditorium on fire) to Wheatley Prep outside Boston. Anne is accustomed to getting away with dubious behavior, but what she's not is preppy, a snob, or old money, which makes her an instant outsider and source of intrigue for her fellow classmates. When her secretive roommate is murdered, every student at school is a suspect, starting with witchy Alexis Westbrook and Anne herself, the last one to see Isabella alive. Anne's honest and whip-smart voice demonstrates her strength of character and intuition as she observes the differences between the elite of New York City and Boston. In this first book in a planned series, first-time author Taylor blends thriller and contemporary fiction elements in a tightly developed plot. Anne's romance with two boys from vastly different social backgrounds offers insight into the heroine's conflicted, yet emerging sense of morality. Ages 12–up. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Aug.)
