Secret Society Girl
by Diana Peterfreund
Synopsis: Eli University junior Amy Haskel never expected to be tapped into Rose & Grave. She isn’t rich, politically connected, or . . . well, male. So when Amy is one of the first female students to receive the distinctive black-lined invitation with the Rose & Grave seal, she’s blown away. Could they really mean her?
Whisked off into an elaborate initiation rite, Amy awakens the next day to a new reality and a whole new set of “friends”—from the gorgeous son of a conservative governor to an Afrocentric lesbian activist whose society name is Thorndike. And that’s when Amy starts to discover the truth about getting what you wish for. Because Rose & Grave is quickly taking her away from her familiar world of classes and keggers, fueling a feud and undermining a very promising friendship with benefits. And that’s before Amy finds out that her first duty as a member of Rose & Grave is to take on a conspiracy of money and power that could, quite possibly, ruin her whole life.
From the publisher
Review: I am a sucker for chick lit books like this. I love light humorous books about young women and the scrapes that they get in. And this book delivers. The main character, Amy, is quite like many other heroines in chick lit books. She has a dilemma and needs to figure out what she is going to do about it. She does it in a way that makes us laugh and sympathize with her. She's a very down to earth girl even though she is a very elite school. Peterfruend writes with a witty sense of humor and keeps the pace flowing throughout this book. I enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to reading the next book in the series (if my library has it!)
