The girls of Georgetown Academy are back and the stakes are higher than ever in Book 4 of the Georgetown Academy series by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz. Stress levels are high for Taryn and Ellie as they not only try to survive high school romances, but also survive being pitted against each other while their parents run for Vice President of the United States of America. But they aren't the only characters being put through the ringer in this one!

Book four picks up exactly where the third book left off. Scandals abound and tempers flare, leading to friendships under strain and new alliances forming, and is I’ve come to expect from Etting and Schwartz, they keep the rollercoaster ride of emotions going until the very end. The story continues with Ellie’s mom giving her the news about an opportunity she was offered to skyrocket her career in politics, but it’s a move which forces Ellie to put her own life on hold to help advance her mom’s ...more

Stakes are higher in this book. What the kids do could make or break their parents careers... Or at least that is what they are led to believe by their parents. Teenage angst is at an all time high. The kids play as down and dirty as their parents or do they? Can you be with your true love if your parents are political enemies? Can you remain friends if your parents are suddenly rivals for the 2nd most important position in the country? Can the parents do the right things for their children? Thi ...more

What can I say? I love these girls!! I couldn’t wait for the release of Book 4 as I was so interested in finding out what would happen next. Book 4 is all about the position of vice president which is up for grabs for either Ellie’s mum or Taryn’s dad.

What I love about these books is that you can either read it as it stand alone (the authors have a real talent for highlighting all the important facts in the beginning of each book again) or as part of the series. Although reading it as part of th

My Thoughts:

The Cover: I think this cover is my favorite. A D.C. Night, city lights, the Capital Building in the background. Our mysterious legs in red and conservative shoes. I am thinking those are Taryn's legs, as she wore a red dress and plain shoes to the big Dedication Party. Although the dress seems a little short for the possibly second daughter.

The Plot: Wow, can things get any hotter in a D.C. private school? I think stars are starting to align for these girls. As always, the plot is

At this point, I think we all know that Georgetown Academy is my favorite guilty pleasure. I don’t read gossip columns or tabloids but GTA fills that need for me in a fictional world. Book 4 takes things to entirely new heights with the role of Vice President on the line. This plot is full of brand new scandals and an intricate web of entangling alliances. I love how different each of the girls are and yet how they are all experiencing the same issues—the pressures of the political world where o ...more

Well, book three left me hanging a bit when important news breaks that the vice president is going to resign and the race is down to two important players: Taryn's dad and Ellie's mom. Will these girls keep it together while under going even more media scrutiny, not to mention intense background checks? Ellie must decide whether she can live without Gabe as not to ruin her mother's chance at a moment in history, while Taryn is thrown more into the arms of Brinley and her family. As Taryn's dad h ...more

I was lucky to have been contacted by the publisher of "Georgetown Academy" to receive the ebook in exchange for an honest review.

The Georgetown Academy Series will always be in my eyes, "Gossip Girl" with politics. In the fourth addition of the series, tensions are up, stakes are raised, and hearts are at risk.

Even though my bias is Evan, my attention did go a lot to Ellie. There's a lot more going on for Ellie in this installment and I found myself gravitating to her, her issues, and also her

I jumped at the chance to read this fourth book, mostly because I missed Brinley, but this last installment was so much more than just gossip, we can clearly see the girls are growing up and facing a few dangerous path, but they always chose the right thing and this last book left me hoping for more in this series.

Brinley was a busy girl and she had to handle two things: her new boo is just a townie and don’t have money, but make her happy and her heart race, so the moments together are so worth

After reading books 1-3 and going from questioning the wisdom of not allowing teens to be teens in the political cauldron of Washington,DC to be completely addicted to the trials and tribulations of the four main characters, I have to say, Georgetown Academy: Book Four is like the icing on the cake. Ellie, Brinley, Evan and Taryn, polar opposites in almost every way, have successfully traversed the dangerous waters of high school, political intrigue. Each has grown and become their own person, a ...more

For anyone who has not already caught on to Georgetown Academy series this is the perfect way to get all four books in one. As I already had read & LOVED the three previous books, I was excited yet worried about the fourth installment... how could Book Four live up to the previous three installments? But the GTA authors did not disappoint me! In fact I would have to say that Book Four was my favorite! More scandalous drama, more twists & turns, more intrigue and more fun--- this exciting ...more

Kat's Review

Book Four of the Georgetown Academy series doesn't disappoint. I actually think this is the best book in the series. The characters are evolving and maturing, and the storyline is tighter. The authors manage to wrap up the storylines started in the first three books of the series while simultaneously setting the stage for what's to come in the next set of books.

I mentioned this in my review for Book Three, but Brinley is growing on me. She may be the most complex and conflicted char

The Georgetown Academy books just keep getting better and better. At the end of Book Three, we are left with a cliffhanger for Taryn and Ellie. We learn in Book Four that their lives are going to forever change—Taryn’s father and Ellie’s mother have made the short list to take over as Vice President. Once again they are pitted against each as their parents do battle to win the approval of their peers and the President in order to take over the second hig

Due to illness the Vice President of the U.S. resigns and the two frontrunners emerge for the President to choose his new second in command. Ellie and Taryn's parents are the choices and both girls find themselves thrust into a media frenzy as the glare from spotlight finds them attending parties and navigating scandals.

Book Four was worth the wait!! The plot thickens with all the intriguing characters continuing to move in and out of each others' lives with twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. The Georgetown Academy Books have politics as the background, but the children of the politicians are the primary focus. It is fun to see how the forces which bear down on the parents play out in their children's lives. These books have let us speculate about the lives of Washington insiders. The books are so ...more

The gang is at it again in the fourth book in the Georgetown Academy series. From the first book to the last I have quickly fallen in love with the teens of Georgetown Academy. I am so glad I gave the second book a chance.
Brinley, Ellie, Evan, and Taryn are wreaking havoc in D.C. as the vice president steps down and two of the girl’s parents go head-to-head in the race for the seat. The drama never disappoints readers as the characters find themselves in sticky situations. With mishaps from boy
