Georgetown Academy: Book Two (Georgetown Academy #2)
While Ellie tries to put her life back together, Evan just might get everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect boyfriend and her dream career. But her loyalties will be put to the test when it turns out to b ...more
I am a sap for over the top melodrama, and Georgetown Academy has that in spades. Everyone is having trouble dealing with living life under a microscope, where poor decisions and lapses in judgment have pa ...more
Let's start with Brinley since she is the mean girl with a heart. The story picks right up where the first one ended and Brinley is quickly loosing control of her dark, deep secret. I am not going to divulge that since it would ruin the plot. She does try to help her bestie, Ellie, track down who leaked a picture of her with her mother's worst enemy's son. The backstory to that relationship will have you reeling. Evan, the good girl is trying really hard to get in good with su ...more
The Cover: The cover to Book 2 was similar to Book 1. Only it's daytime, the Lincoln Memorial is used and we see a white dress, not red. Can't decide which cover I like the best, but the way these books are going, the covers are really starting to fit.
The Plot: Wow, things are really starting to heat up at Georgetown Academy! The plot really does get better and better. I was a bit worried going into Book 2 as Book 1 took so long to really get going, but without a doubt, I am hooked ...more

In the halls of Georgetown Academy, gossip and rumor abound. But when photographic proof shows up on the front page of The Huffington Post? Then it’s a national scandal.
While Ellie tries to put her life back together, Evan just might get everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect boyfriend and her dream career. But her loyalties will be put to the test when it ...more
Book 2 starts immediately at the point Book 1 ended, leaving Ellie to deal with an extremely “sticky” situation. In fact, all four main characters (Ellie, Brinley, Evan and Taryn) are involved in more scandal, drama and love triangles I ever thought possible. Ellie needs to decide between two boys (Hunter and Gabe), Brinley is battling with her pill addiction, Evan hel ...more
This one was full of scandal, and showed the behind-the-scenes aspects of politics where various stories are leaked to the press...either by political opponents or by individuals themselves to save face. I'll admit, that little dirty secret aspect was really interesting and was one of my favourite parts. I liked seeing how different individuals spu ...more
this series does keep getting better and better. i still love the fact that i get to choose my own adventure..(yes, i am a nerd)
in this book, Elle's scandal is more than what she thought was going to happen with Gabe. Her mother totally stopped talking to her and her boyfriend of two years, hunter also called it quits. She has to spend the rest of the week trying to do damage control at the school. Everyone stopped talking to ...more
It is really interesting how Georgetown Academy doesn't have any clubs or anything because if they did the students club choice could be used against them in the future ( for example say your involved with animal activists club and then you become a senator and don't care about animal's). That would certainty hurt your voters if they discovered that you weren't pro animal or something like that. Also at Georgetown Academy ...more
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I must admit this series has not been my favorite. I should know better than to read books about politics. But I did enjoy book two a little more than book one, and I think that certain readers would enjoy this series much more than I am. It is just not my style.
I still do not like any of the characters. They all just seem so fake to me. I had nothing like this in high school. None of the drama, none of the trying ...more
Ellie's scandal is the main issue that is present in the book. I liked seeing ho different people manipulated the situation, and I have to say I was surprised to find out who took the picture. The way Brinley's situation screamed Gossip Girl to me. So if you are a fan of that type of drama this is the se ...more
Book two picks up right where book one left off. Love, scandal, hatred, politics, everything you expect from the world of Washington D.C. fills these books.
Each character is unique and has a distinctive voice. Ellie is my favorite, but I do enjoy the other points of view. One of the hardest things about writing in multiple POV is keeping the voices fresh and distinct. These books don’t have that issue.
The plot is fast paced and intertwining. Even though it doesn’t ap ...more
Georgetown Academy Book Two is the second book in this teenage drama series. I was not impressed with the first book but I stuck with this series and I am so glad that I did. The second book redeemed this series for me.
As I stated in the previous book’s review I think that the choosing the character to follow idea is a little weird, I think that this idea is growing me. This book follows the drama that the GA crowd a ...more
