What could possibly be more dramatic than the teen problems of high school? A high school filled with the of drama of politics that is.

Ellie Walker the girl who went from a nobody to the girl everyone envies. Her hot new boyfriend, Hunter McKnight (who is de ...more
Are you looking for your next Young Adult Contemporary read? Why don’t you grab your Kindle and read Georgetown Academy by Alyssa Embree Schwartz & Jessica Koosed Etting. Georgetown Academy has been hailed by Gossip Girl producer, Josh Schwartz, as “Smart, sexy and insanely addictive.”
Georgetown Academy, Season One follows the story of Ellie Walker, the DC Sweetheart, Brinley Madison, the DC Princess, Evan Hartnett, the goody two shoes & Taryn Reyes, the new girl in town. They all atten
Choose Your Own Adventure books work, in print. I don't think the technology is quite there for Kindle books though, and that was a huge detriment to this book. When we got to the "Choose which character to follow" I chose Ellie, and then I had the option afterwards to continue on with the story (which I chose) or go back and read everyone else's stories (which I didn't do), so by the time I fin ...more
It has been hailed as "Gossip Girl" meets "West Wing". I can honestly say that is a fair description. Was it the best book I have read, no. An highly entertaining read, yes.
The book is written in the "chose your own adventure" style allowing the reader to decide who's story to follow. To really understand what is going on you must take the journey through all the participant's eyes.
At times you struggle with each girls personality, but like every ...more
ooh this book is evil. It pissed me off the entire time but now I just have to read the next one because of that stupid cliffhanger. I think I've learned an important lesson: Don't read books that are set in a city that is important to you because you will end up very angry over what Mexican restaurant the characters go to.
But seriously...Cactus Cantina?? Guapos all day baby.
also i should probably mention that it is kind of a "choose your own adven ...more
Digital ARC provided by publisher for honest and thoughtful review.
From the start, I loved the idea of these books and jumped at the chance to review them - with their backdrop of Washington DC politics (I'm a political junkie and I love vacationing ...more
It’s the beginning of a new political administration. That might not mean much at most high schools, but at Georgetown Academy, Washington D.C.’s most elite prep school, January 20th means new alliances, new flings, and new places to party. While freshmen—nicknamed “interns” for their willingness to jump into bed with anyone higher on the D.C. totem pole—navigate the not-so-friendly halls of GA searching for Algebra and Bio classes, the school’s lifers have other things on their minds. For ...more

As such, this is not the type of book that I would have picked out for myself , though it does have some very interesting features. Coliloquy is a publishing company that, from what I've read, focuses on interaction and active engagement of the reader. To put this in context - in this book, there was a party, which was kind of the focal point of th ...more

I loved that each main character has their own introduction of sorts, and then the story broke off into a narrative where you could choose who you wanted to follow. Personally, I preferred Ellie and Taryn's parts. I just ...more
all i can say is that i am glad that the publisher gave me all 3 books because this book has a huge cliffhanger!!!!
this book is a choose your own adventure. which is amazing!! it made me smile and actually like the book a lot more.
this book follows 3 girls who go to Georgetown academy. this high school is for kids whose parents are in the government in D.C the first girl they talk about is a girl named Taryn Reyes. her father ...more
Ellie is Brinley's best friend and boyfriend to Hunter McKnight son of a pretty powerful influence. Ellie has a lot to deal with, her mother is being attacked by her ex-boyfriend's father, who also just happens to be back at Georgetown Academy & her best friend ha ...more
First off, it follows too many characters. And I wasn’t a huge fan of any of them. Brinley was a total brat, Evan was a worrywart. I didn’t mind Taryn too much, except for the drinking, and I didn’t mind Ellie except for the sex. If I had a choice, I probably would have picked Taryn as my favorite for her uniqueness, b ...more
Prior to reading Georgetown Academy, I was very excited to get my hands on it. I'm a nerd, so I love government and politics, plus there were comparisons to Gossip Girl being made which can basically make me want to read any book. What really pushed me over the edge, however, was the media coverage this book from a small publisher, written by two relatively unknown authors, was getting. I saw t ...more
When I was approached to read and review Georgetown Academy I was a little hesitant. I don’t know much about politics and I thought that this story could go two ways. The first; I thought that I wouldn’t understand anything happening in the story which would make it difficult to connect with. The second being that it would go something like this, “Oh my gee Sarah, can you believe daddy w ...more
