Welcome to Trinity Academy’s best-kept secret.
You’ve been handpicked by the elite of the elite to become a member. But first you’ll have to prove your worth by making it through Hell Week.
Do you have what it takes?
It’s time to find out.
Samantha Evans knows she’d never get an invite to rush the Society—not after her dad went to jail for insider trading. But after years of relentless bullying at the hands of the Society’s queen bee, Jessica, she’s ready to take down Jessica and the Society one peg at a time from the inside out.
All it’ll take is a bit of computer hacking, a few fake invitations, some eager rushees…and Sam will get her revenge.
Let the games begin.
In an Oyster Shell – A story about a teen that’s had enough of bullying and wants her revenge no matter the cost.
The Pearls – The book had a great premise. A rich girl fallen from grace due to her father’s misdeeds. All on her own with her ailing aunt, Samantha has to make due. Most people shun her for what her dad did though she has one frined who stands by her side. This book is about revenge. What I liked most about this book is it dealt with the reality of consequences. Not all fiction especially Ya fiction deals with that.
There was a great cast of characters. The aunt and Samantha’s best friend were the most memorable for me. I am glad that her best friend was there for her, even to the point of holding her accountable.
The romance of this book was cute and real. I like that this book had real life situations in it. The almost romance and the real romance.
I am glad that the MC learns a lesson and things are resolved in the end, though a bit unexpectedly.
The Sand – The book had a lot going for it, but in the end left me a bit underwhelmed.
