Series:(Prep School Confidential #1)
Just looking at the cover I really didn't know what to expect, I'm a guy, the book has a girl cover, what is there to expect? Well, Kara Taylor proved me wrong after the first few chapters.
Prep School Confidential was a perfect paced novel where the action is heating, the suspense was on the edge of the seat, and the ending was killer! It had the Revenge show feel mixed perfectly with Gossip Girl elements but the mystery sets it apart. I loved this book much! This book blew all my expectations and I honestly can't wait to pick up book two and see how Anne is going to solve more investigations. :)
I have no words for this book. Just amazing!
Just by the first chapter, I was hooked on this book and I knew I had to devour it in a day! Anne Dowling was the perfect character for this book. She had a wit and spice that kept the story moving but she also had realism in her like when she burns down a part of her school. Now, she's shift off to Wheatley school in Boston way different from the usual upper east side of New York City. But just as she gets used to this life, she finds more to the school even when her roommate Isabella Fernandez is found dead in the wood of her school with her neck sliced. I was totally rooting for Anne the whole time. I love the way she had to dig deep to find answers and at the same time she's also dealing with romance between Brent and Antony. As Anne gets closer to finding the killer the suspense kicks in full gear and I would definitely not guessed who it was!! It was a total shocker since you think it's that person, but Kara has tricks up her sleeve and wants you to think that. I was BLOWN away!
Prep School Confidential was that under the covers book and I loved reading it like that. One thing that was done smart was how each suspect had a good reason they might kill Isabella, and the more Anna discovers I was intrigued. But there were some plot holes that was laid out for book two which was so well done!! The other characters like Remy, Kelsey, and Alexis were great too and their roles in the book were placed perfectly.
I was so shocked! I did not see it coming at all, the plot twist was done so effortlessly it was smart and shocking all at the same time! :) Prep School Confidential is a book you are definitely going to devour. Fact paced, electrifying with twist and turns, and a shocking ending that will shocked you between pages! Can't wait for book 2!
