Secret Society

Secret Society by Tom Dobly
rating 8/10

An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York's wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.

They didn't ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything—even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they're forced to get on the nape of their necks. Once they're part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It's all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.

Honestly, I'm not quite sure what to say about this book. Overall, it was good. Curious, to say the least. I was really excited to read this. As soon as I saw it and read the discription, I got it right away. Everything about it was intriguing. I think that was my problem, though. I was too expecting, like I am a lot of the times. Like I said, though, it was good, especially since it was Dolby's YA debut.  The only thing though, is that while I was reading sometimes I got a little bored and distracted. Secret Society was intruiging, and it's a fast read.
