After Cheyenne Martin's death, everyone at Easton Academy is struggling to recover from yet another tragedy--especially the girls of Billings Hall. With Cheyenne gone, they need to elect a new leader. And who better than Reed Brennan, the ultimate Billings Girls?

As the new Billings president, Reed suddenly has access to power she never imagined. Gossip is reported to her immediately, she has first dibs on everything from dining tables to dorm rooms, and Billings's most powerful alumnae are at her beck and call. So when Easton's students discover they're the only prep school on the East Coast not invited to this year's all-inclusive Legacy party, everyone turns to Reed to get them back on the list.

What I thought:

Oh the emotional roller coaster that is experienced in this novel! I have a hard time saying if I really liked it or not, but it was enjoyable, at least. I have been hoping for a more stable situation in Reed's dating life because, well, I like her with Josh. I'm hoping for the best and I can't wait to start the next in hopes to see things get better for them.

I liked the mystery of the Legacy, it was more downplayed than previous novels (hey! only so many deaths can really take place!) and it was a nice switch to some seriousness. Well, if you ask the Billings Girls, being snubbed from the Legacy is a big deal.

I was excited to see the return of a favorite character (no spoilers! need to read to find out who!) and I knew there would be a gimmick to add more drama, and boy did it ever! This series is looking to heat up again as Reed races to the finish to bring the Billings Girls to the party of the year.

I gave it 3 stars!
