Overview

Reed Brennan arrived at Easton Academy expecting to find an idyllic private school experience — challenging classes, adorably preppy boys, and a chance to create a new life for herself. Instead, she discovered lies, deception, blackmail, and...murder. But, thankfully, the killers were caught and the nightmare is finally over.

Now, with a new school year ahead of her, Reed steps back on Easton's ivy-covered campus ready to start over. So when the headmaster announces that billings is forbidden from holding their traditional, secretive initiation, Reed is relieved. She champions the new rules and the six new girls the administration has picked to live in Billings Hall: Constance, Missy, Lorna, Kiki, Astrid, and newcomer Sabine.

But Reed's fellow Billings resident and new nemesis, Cheyenne Martin, believes the changes are a mockery of Billings history. Despite the new rules, Cheyenne vows to keep the old ways alive, no matter what — or who — stands in her way...

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
After a harrowing first year at Easton Academy that included blackmail and murder, Reed Brennan returns for his second year of school hoping that this year will be uneventful. She has hardly settled into the exclusive dormitory named Billings before she begins a face-off with Cheyenne Martin, who dislikes the new rules that specify that they can no longer hold initiations for the dorm. While Reed supports the new girls the administration has chosen for Billings, she never dreams how far Cheyenne will go to get her own way. While Reed's mission is admirable, her motives are never made clear. Why is she so determined to oppose Cheyenne? Based on the earlier year's events, one expects more sinister and exciting things to happen, but the ending falls rather flat. Reed's voice is problematic; the story is told in first person, yet Reed talks more like a forty-year-old woman than a teenage girl through most of the books. This installment of the "Private" series really has little going for it, but fans of the series will no doubt enjoy finding out what happens next. Reviewer: Amie Rose Rotruck
