it was amazing

Snarky intellect. Charming, diverse characters. And an entertaining plot that progresses smoothly.

Secret Society Girl might appear to be a typical school soap opera, but in actuality it’s a cleverly disguised journey of finding oneself … with the help of a society most people only dream of joining, and an unsolved mystery. I’ve never before read such a successfully integrated mystery in a school setting; it kept the story unique and never permitted a dull moment.

The characters are just as original and lively as the plot. Amy’s sharp and loves her pop culture references, but she goes above and beyond the average Mary Sue, making her likeable and relatable. The society crew that she meets along the way has plenty diversity to spare – it’s incredibly difficult to grow bored of any of them, and just when you think that you might, they surprise you; all of them have such distinctive voices that bring them alive.

Peterfreund’s novel adds depth to a normally shallow subject, and does so with both class and spunk.
