|Summary, etc.:|| Starting her junior year at an exclusive East Coast girls' boarding school on a lacrosse scholarship, small-town Sadie uncovers a murder mystery after being inducted into a powerful secret society.
The first time she is blindfolded and kidnapped, star-athlete and posh boarding school newbie Sadie is terrified. She wakes up in a dark room surrounded by hushed whispers and hooded strangers-- but once the robes come off, she realizes it's just an elaborate prank designed to induct her into the group that's been pulling the strings at Keating Hall for generations. The instant popularity is enough to make Sadie forget about the unexplained marks on her body, the creepy ceremonial rituals, and the incident that befell one of her teammates the year before. So the next time Sadie is kidnapped, she isn't scared. But she should be....

Sadie, a down-to-earth, lacrosse-playing Portland native, is initially skeptical, along with her BFF Jessica, of the mannequin-like veneers of their classmates at Keating Hall. But Sadie gradually learns that her very existence at school is meticulously controlled. Secret societies, kidnappings, and other plot elements offer Sadie "a taste of things she had never even thought she wanted: wealth, power, and status," which distracts her from the mysterious death of a former student and a chilling reality that will give the toughest of readers goose bumps. With suspenseful pacing and gothic diction, Friend skillfully develops each character in this novel, which blends themes of romance and friendship with the glam of Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl (2002) and a sinister private-school mystery reminiscent of Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Boys (2012).
