Tap and Gown is the fourth and final book in Diana Peterfreund's fabulous Ivy League series. The series follows Amy Haskel as she is "tapped" and inducted into fictional Eli University's most prestigious secret society, the Rose and the Grave. In this last novel, Amy's tap class must come together before they graduate and decide who will be their successors in the society.

I am so sad to leave this series behind. The characters are so quirky and witty, and I have loved being a part of their lives for a short time. The clever dialog between the entertaining and original characters is Gilmore Girls-esque, which only adds to the reading experience. The storyline is captivating - I really enjoyed being on the "inside" of this society for all their intrigues and drama. The setting is incredibly evocative, bringing the campus to vivid life before the reader's eyes.

Overall, I really enjoyed the entire series. Tap and Gown is a little bittersweet for me, knowing that Amy's story is over, but Peterfreund has another novel coming out later this year, Rampant. It's a completely different genre, but I'll pick it up and probably will enjoy it just the same.

Abby I loved this series too! I was so sad it was over. I hope her new book is as good!

Susan I hope so too. It looks like mythological fantasy, which I also enjoy.

Abby Me too! My fingers are crossed.
