Witty and scandalous, Secrets is a fun mix of drama, lies, romance, and secrets that will charm readers until the very end. Kunze and Onur has created a great prestigious college atmosphere along with the issues of friendship, relationships, drinking, and scandals.
Kunze and Onur has yet again created a thrilling plot built with secrets. The secrets in the story had a lot to do with love, initiating more disputes. Even though the suspense did not build up, the suspense was there all throughout the story. I couldn't help stop myself from flipping the pages!
The characters were definitely the most entertaining part of the story. Each character had their own personality, had their flaws, and was unique in ther own way. They basically were either the ones you loved, or the ones you hate. Callie, even though smart and appealing, struggled to stand up for herself for this one secrets of hers that would may destroy her friendships and relationship. Although, Callie was still very likable and relatable. Her love life added onto her drama, as two boys were always vying for her attention.
Secondary characters, Mimi and Dana, were very amusing and enjoyable. Mimi's French chinwags always made me smile and Dana's levelheaded attitude and overall smartness were great traits. Also, Vanessa, Callie's ex-bestfriend due to betrayal, was a fun character that always stirred up the drama, causing the story to get more suspenseful.
Gregory or Clint? I am absolutely torn between those two! Being 'perfect', Clint was such a sweet and charming guy. Through his actions, it was obvious that he did care a lot about Callie. Though, with Gregory, it was obvious that both Callie and him were attracted to each other. It was a complicated friendship because there was a lot of misunderstandings and a lot of 'avoiding' with the both of them.
Just like The Ivy, Secrets has left at another cliffhanger. Secrets is a novel you won't want to miss. The atmosphere packed with boys, drinking, secrets, and lies is the definite high school experience.
