It's been a couple of weeks since I finished this, so I'm sparse on specific details like character names since I found the whole book to be mostly forgettable...here's what I remember thinking while I was reading though...

This book got a good enough review that I actually put it on hold when I ordered it for my library, which I don't do too often. Sadly, it didn't live up to its potential for me. It felt like it should have wanted to be campy, but was taking itself too seriously. The whole high school secret society extending into college, adulthood, politics, etc., just felt like a bad remake of "The Skulls." And then in the end, you find out the entire book was just a big set up for a sequel. Nothing really happens. And yes, the book focuses a lot on being yourself, being comfortable in your skin, finding your own beauty, but in the end, it all felt pretty superficial anyway. Silly, silly, silly.
