The price of power...

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.

Reed is the most powerful girl at Easton.

She revels in her newfound status, but knows better than anyone that the Bilings leaders have a tainted legacy: Ariana was institutionalized, Noelle was expelled, and Cheyenne just died. History has a way of repeating itself at Easton, and now that Reed has everything she's ever wanted, she has everything to lose.

The Girls of Billing are still grieving over the loss of Cheyenne. The sisters can't believe that one of their own would commit suicide. But Cheyenne was expelled at the end of book five, INNER CIRCLE, and the girls believe Cheyenne couldn't face leaving in disgrace.

So we arrive at the start of book six in the PRIVATE series by Kate Brian.

Reed Brennan can't stand seeing everyone so down and depressed. So she convinces them that a day in town shopping and a nice dinner will do everyone wonders. The gals of Billing dormitory head off into town and have a wonderful time. Retail therapy and good food perk them all up. And much to Reed's surprise, while at dinner, the girls unanimously elect her the new president of Billings Hall. Reed is speechless, but she accepts and plans on making Easton Academy forget the bad that happened while Cheyenne was running things.

But when the girls arrive back at the dorm, everything comes to a complete stop. For there, standing in the dorm, is none other than Noelle Lange. She's back! Reed has missed her terribly, but she can't believe that Noelle didn't tell her she was returning to Easton. Right from her return, Reed's roommate, Sabine, doesn't like Noelle. And the
feeling seems to be mutual. Noelle snubs Sabine and hustles Reed off for some private talk. Reed's boyfriend, Josh, is upset that Noelle is back and is afraid that she will bring out the worst side of Reed.

Reed is in shock at how, almost overnight, people she never spoke to have taken the time to acknowledge her, and bestow gifts upon her. But with her new presidency and popularity comes a price. Cheyenne's family was going to be sponsoring the Legacy (invitation-only elite party for the important prep school people) but with her death, the Legacy has been cancelled. Or so the students of Easton believed. Then someone receives an email from off-campus with the easily recognizable Legacy invitation. Everyone looks to Reed for guidance.

Reed is determined to find out who is sponsoring the Legacy now, and to secure invitations for those that have been snubbed. With the help of Noelle and the rest of Billings, Reed travels into New York City to track down the anonymous party planner.

Will the elite of Easton get to the famous Legacy party? Will Reed convince Josh that Noelle is not up to no good? And will the local police decide once and for all if Cheyenne really committed suicide - or was it more sinister?

Ms. Brian continues the PRIVATE series with much suspense and dark humor. This series is similar to the IT GIRL series, but with more intrigue and backstabbing. Once you pick up one of the books in the series, you'll be drawn in and have to find out how all the rich kids live and play in the private school setting.

Caution: This review contains spoilers! Reed and the rest of the Billings Girls are back in Legacy, book six of the Private Series. They are mourning the loss of Cheyenne and trying to get answers to their questions surrounding her suicide. This is the second death on the Easton campus and the question is how can tragedy strike the sheltered and the elite? Cheyenne was president of Billings House prior to her death. Now that the presidency is vacant, only one Billings Girl seems appropriate to replace her: Reed. The same day Reed accepts the nomination, a surprise awaits her. Noelle is back at Easton Academy. Meanwhile, Halloween approaches and it's time for the Legacy. There's just one problem: the Easton students have been blackballed. And no one knows why. Now that Reed is president, it's up to her to get everyone invites. As much as she enjoys being president of Billings House, Reed also learns it comes with a price.
