Excerpt from THE ELITE (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: It’s the most exclusive luxury apartment building on New York’s Upper East Side. If you don’t live there—you don’t know how to live… When Casey McCloy steps into The Bramford, she’s overwhelmed by the sophistication and elegance of it all. Fresh from the Midwest, she’s moved to NYC to live with her grandmother and attend the prestigious Meadowlark Academy. Here all that matters is who you know. The girl to know is Madison Macallister: popular, pretty, platinum-blond. So Casey aims to get in with Madison and her gorgeous gal-pals from the start. But after a city-haute makeover from her new frenemy Madison, Casey is wearing the right clothes, saying the right things, and meeting the right people—including Drew, the boy-about-town who Madison thinks belongs to her and her alone . . .

“I don't know why I'm suddenly so angry, but I am. With Delilah, with Luke, with Ben, with myself for letting all of this happen in the first place, for not noticing something was wrong before it was way, way too late.”
Jennifer Banash, Silent Alarm

“I'm sorry,' I say for what feels like the millionth time. I know, even as my mouth forms the words, that I will say them for the rest of my life. Forever. That there will never be a time when I am not, in some small way, apologizing for the damage my brother has wrought.”
Jennifer Banash, Silent Alarm

“Luke is dead too, like Katie, I know, but this makes no difference. My grief will always be less important.”
Jennifer Banash, Silent Alarm
