Queen of Secrets is a fairly cliche novel focusing mainly on cheerleading, football and popularity with a touch of religion thrown in for good measure.

Essie has spent the past year swooning over the team quarterback, Austin. To the surprise of her best friends, Essie has plans to join the cheerleading team in the hopes that Austin will finally notice her. The only trouble is her strictly religious cousin has just transferred to Essie's school and she just can't bring herself to acknowledge Micah publically for fear of her reputation. Although what she doesn't know is Micah holds the key to some of her families darkest secrets.

Queen of Secrets wasn't particularly well-written or overly enjoyable but I pushed through and was able to complete it as one of the final few remaining letters in the ABC Reading Challenge.

Overall, I really enjoyed learning about the Jewish culture but felt there was far too much emphasis on morals and how teens should act in particular scenarios. It felt like a book written by parents for teens especially with the whole abstinence discussion at the end. Queen of Secrets wouldn't really be a book I'd recommend to others as there are far more quality books available that feature similar topics.
