In this breathtaking debut that reads like Gossip Girl crossed with Twin Peaks, a Queen Bee at a blue-blooded New England prep school stumbles into a murder mystery.

Anne Dowling practically runs her exclusive academy on New York’s Upper East Side—that is, until she accidentally burns part of it down and gets sent to a prestigious boarding school outside of Boston. Determined to make it back to New York, Anne couldn't care less about making friends at the preppy Wheatley School. That is, until her roommate Isabella’s body is found in the woods behind the school.

When everyone else is oddly silent, Anne becomes determined to uncover the truth no matter how many rules she has to break to do it. With the help of Isabella’s twin brother Anthony, and a cute classmate named Brent, Anne discovers that Isabella wasn’t quite the innocent nerdy girl she pretended to be. But someone will do anything to stop Anne’s snooping in this fast-paced, unputdownable read—even if it means framing her for Isabella’s murder.

Gossip Girl is one of our favorite things ever, so we were pretty excited to pick up this series, which we read back to back.

The 411:

Shortly after transplanting to Wheatley, Anne’s roommate, Isabella, turns up dead. No one seems to care, so Anne starts to investigate. Along the way, she falls for Isabella’s brother, as well as another classmate.

What We Loved:

We loved Anne’s sassy attitude and the whole world of Wheatley.

Heart Border

Um...Not So Much:

We really loved Brent, but we weren’t fans of the triangle. Then again, when are we ever? We also felt like as much as we loved Anne and the whole crew, this story was a bit juvenile. It could be because one of us reads mostly New Adult and we all know they’re total grown ups. 😀

Heart Border

Bottom Line:

Prep School Confidential was a fun, fast-paced read with characters we loved. We can’t wait to read the next one!
