This book is a great one. It is about how Thomas' death affected her and her friends and how they get through it to become somewhat normal again. Not just that but throughout the book theres a mystery if who murdered Thomas Pearson. Reed is defiantly the most hurt because Thomas was her boyfriend and she wants answers. Her Billings Girls try and try to help but things just don't seem to go Reed's way. Reed likes Josh. One problem comes right after the other, and when she thinks things are gettin ...more

I found this book in the bookcase at my house, but this time I thought the cover was stupid. It looked like a book about some clique-y lame girls. But I decided to give it a try after reading the sypnosis. It wasn't all that bad, and it was easy to pick up on considering it's supposed to be the third book in a series. The story plots around a college girl named Reed and her clique of friends which is referred to as the Billings Girls. It starts around Thanksgiving break, and Reed is coping with ...more

Yay! Private is finally getting interesting. Book 3 is the payoff for the setting up in books 1 and 2. The book opens with Thomas' funeral and we learn that just about everyone believes he was murdered. (sidenote: ok, so I guess the police are nosing around, but it seems weird that none of Thomas' friends floated the possibility of him having ODed or died of alcohol poisoning or something. After all, he was a drug dealer with a serious alcohol problem - but whatever, I'll let that go). And even ...more

This was a very good book about a teenage girl who is at a private school on a scholarship. She is now in the high class group of rich girls even though she isn’t rich. Her boyfriend Thomas Pearson was just killed but they don’t know who killed him. Now she is going through all these withdrawal effects and can’t get him out of her head. She starts falling for a different guy, Thomas’ roommate, Josh. She starts to think about her and Thomas when she’s with Josh, which makes her back off from Josh ...more

The second book of the series ended with a cliff hanger and this one started with the day after. Immediately I found myself back into the world full of drama, privileges and secrets. Reeds boyfriend is death and everyone, including herself, wants to know who killed him. After allot of speculations someone gets the blame and they all think that they can close the chapter. Guess again, life doesn’t work that way often.

In the first, two books when the love between Reed and Thomas was described, I h

In Kate Brian’s Untouchable, it’s time for Thanksgiving break. Things are starting to look up for Reed. The girls have finally accepted her as one of their own, she is getting over Thomas, someone has been arrested in connection with his death, and she’s started to spend some time with a new boy. The new boy, however, is Thomas’ roommate, Josh.

And just as soon as everyone leaves for break, except Reed and Josh, everything starts to go downhill. The two are caught together and are banned from see

Suprisingly, this series keeps getting better and better. Now I'm not saying it's amazing but it's something that's light and easy to read and will still suck you in enough to be intrigued in every scandal these girls find themselves immersed in. That being said, I wonder if there are really girls who are this catty and manipulative in the real world....What am I saying, of course there are. I just can't imagine sometimes with the things these girls say and do. I have a possee of male friends an ...more

All I can say is thank goodness for the ability to put books on hold at the library, because I’ve already put the rest of this series on hold so I don’t have to wait one minute for the next book after I finish one. Each book in the series gets more and more thrilling and the third, Untouchable by Kate Brian is no exception.

Untouchable opens at the funeral of Thomas Pearson, Reed Brennan, the main character’s former boyfriend. Reed can’t believe he is dead, and is even more stunned that they have

Ok. so I officially have finished the third book in the Private series. I did enjoy this one, but I probably liked the 2nd one a bit better. There are parts of this book that I imagined in my head that I absolutely loved! But then other parts where I want to smack one of the characters. Like Noelle. I think anyone else who has read this book will agree with me that they hate Noelle. She is just vicious. But then there is Reed who I want to smack for believing some of the things that come out of ...more

Right when Reed Brennan was accepted into the Billings Girls' clique and had finally gotten over her ex-boyfriend (if you could call him that) Thomas Pearce, she discovers that Thomas, the guy that she truly loved, was found dead. Now Reed feels guilty for ever moving on or thinking the worst about Thomas. It's hard for Reed to mourn his death since everyone around her is watching her every move and emotions. It doesn't help ei

Why did you choose this book?

After the last book I read in the series I just really got hooked onto the series. I was totally in shock after the second book of the series, and I just had to find out who Thoma's killer was.


In 1-2 sentences only explain the plot of the book.

Reed was going through so much pain, finding out Thomas was murdered. The killer was all along Ariana, but throughout the book all they would do is blame it on Josh Hollis, his room mate, even though he had not done it.

"reality had just set in for these guys who normally walked around in a dream world, a world where they were completely untouchable", P.3. this phrase told me why the authors named it this book UNTOUCHABLE because the lying cold and dead of Thomas Pearson was a mystery that no one will find who was the murder from this book.

the third book reveal that Thomas has a brother named Blake Pearson. they hate each other because of Blake's affair with dean's secretary and He threatened him to tell their

In last book, the series ended it off with Reed finding that Thomas was dead. And then it continued it into the next book with Reed and all of her classmates at Thomas' funeral. They have a suspect in custody but later on in the book they release him because of his alibi. Reed is having mental break downs but not as much as one of her roommates Taylor Bell. Reed is very suspicious of all of the Billing girls by the way they are acting. There are many whispers and rehearsed conversations that wer ...more

Still pretty boring. And really nothing that I want to waste my limited memory capacity on. I finished about a week ago and can't even remember what happens at the end. It was a cliffhanger of course, but obviously not suspenseful enough for me to want to know what happens next. If I ever find the next ones as cheap as I did for the 1st three then I'll probably pick them up, otherwise, not worth spending any money on.
