They all thought they did a masterful job of keeping their secrets close to their chest. These stupid fools thought they were the high court of this kingdom, but they had no clue who was really pulling the strings. You might wonder to yourself, who would be that heartless to make them backstab their friends, expose other's secrets, and lose their morals? You don’t need to

High School Queens by Zachary Ryan is the first book in the trilogy. The plot based on American high school drama and a life full of secrets. I am in love with the cover page. It's striking. This is my first read of this author, and I must say I am impressed.

The main characters are a bunch of high school students. Aman, Calvin, Danielle, Andrew, Delilah, and, Jasmine. They all come from a different section of society. They all have different dreams, but one thing is common which connects them a

This series right through the book reminded me of the Gossip Girl novels as we had someone aka "the Marked Queen" narrating in parts of the book. It was a little hard reading the book in this style but as it was an interesting read, you could bypass the frustration. The book starts off with a secret called The Marked Queen. She has been painting targets on everyone's back and keeping their secrets until they piss her off and she feels the need to reveal their deep and darkest secrets to the scho ...more

Teenage is the time where the youngsters undergo a wave of change; actually a series of change which molds their personality and minds. They are concerned about their social standing, bodies, relationships, career, and sexual needs. They are prone to step into darkness due to the absence of self-esteem and proper guidance. They try hard at making their front porch look well while their backyard is a mess.

High School Queens (Book 1) is a fast-paced and riveting account of the typical American Hig

Title: The title of this book is interesting. It's eye-catch-able. After reading the title one can get a little idea about the story but still he or she will have doubt about the story. The title is meaningful.

Cover: The cover has been designed very uniquely. It can attract readers to read the book. The cover has been made with matching the title. It's good for the readers to understand. Readers could easily relate the cover with the title. In cover, there are three beauties who are throwing fly

High School Queens
is the first book in the High School Queens Trilogy and tells the story of Danielle and her friends.

High School Queens is the first book I’ve read by Zachary Ryan and I really liked it. This book is told in different perspectives so you really get to know what the characters are going through. And they’re going through a lot… This book talks about addiction, self-harm,

High School Queens is set in Johnson Prep High School. It follows the stories of a group of teenagers who all have their own secrets. The Marked Queen is an anonymous student who exposes people's secrets and the students are always afraid of being the next victim.

As expected from a high school setting, the plot is full of drama. There were rumors spreading. Some students were seeking attention while some were getting unwanted attention. Everything about this high school was overdr

The Review

What a fun, dramatic and engaging read. The writing style was incredibly unique, as readers jumped from character to character in each chapter, with a personal narration of the character’s growing problems from the mysterious figures hiding in the shadows, waiting to expose each person’s secrets.

From hiding their sexuality from the world and their families, to keeping their self-destructive tendencies to themselves and the lifestyles they find themselves forced to live in, each chara

Fans of Pretty Little Liars (Sara Shepard) and Crimson Cove Mysteries (Tara Brown) are going to LOVE High School Queens by Zachary Ryan. Ryan weaves the social anxiety of social cliques and the backstabbing nature of teenagers into this free for all at high school. I have never been happier to not be in HS.

The Marked Queen is out to even the playing field and expose all the dirty little secrets of Johnson Prep's "upper crust." Not even the Queen of the school is safe. Despite these characters ap

Characters that you get the feeling are more than just characters to the author. Reading this, the first book in a trilogy, one cannot help but think that he lives and breathes high school students Aman, Calvin, Danielle and co, feeling their pain as each struggles with their inner demons; trying to hide their secrets from The Marked Queen

A real labour of love into which he obviously poured his heart and soul, its evident that not only does he write for and about teenagers but he actually gets

I know Zach from High School, as of the nature of this book is itself about. So I'll just be honest about that at the start, as you will often learn a new understanding of the word while you read through this book to its end. Bitches reign in a tangled web of deceit, backstabbing, and not giving a fuck about whose life you ruin in order to try and keep your lies to your perception going. It's all very wonderful, and the story-lines push the boundaries and go exactly where it seemed best to have ...more

I originally picked to read this book because honestly it had the same things I liked about Pretty Little Liars ( the original show). It just was the same type of vibe from that show and maybe a little of Scream Queens. So I was very intrigued with this.
I mean the snobby mean popular people getting a taste of their own medicine. What's not to like right?

Well I honestly can say this person who was stalking them and knowing everything they did away from school was like wow. I kept guessing it was

Title - High School Queens

Author - Zachary Ryan

If this is the first book of trilogy then I'm super excited for the upcoming books.

The content of this book is exceptional.

Like when anyone joins a college, they have high expectations of having fun and making new friends.

And this book has content about that too. But when you come to know about The Marked Queen, about whom you can read from the very first page, then it kind of sounds cool as a reader, but I would never want such queen to exist for r

So, I have never read a book that was this dramatic before. BUT, I absolutely loved it. I was skeptical when I started it but quickly fell into the dramatic high school atmosphere of what the popular kids must feel like. They were so savage to each other with insults and backstabbing, it was very intense.

I have never seen Gossip Girl but based on what I have heard about the show, I feel like this book is very similar and may have drawn some inspiration from it.

All of the characters were very eas

The Marked Queen has set her sights on Johnson Prep's most popular students, and she won't rest until they've all been knocked off their pedestals. I liked how it was told from multiple perspectives and had a omnipresent narrator, though sometimes their snarkiness got to be a little much. Our main characters are: Danielle, the most popular girl in school, Delilah, her best friend, Jasmine, Danielle's rival for most popular, Calvin, baseball star, Aman, wannabe YouTube sensation, and Andrew, the ...more

2.5 I really wanted to enjoy this but there were quite a few things that just really bothered me.

I generally enjoyed the story and the mystery behind who The Marked Queen was and the real life struggles of the characters. What I didn’t like was the sudden change in narrative and also the extensive amount of spelling and grammatical errors! Generally enjoyed the book as a whole though, a very easy, q

If Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl had a child it would be High School Queens! This was filled with so much teenage angst it gave me whiplash.  The Marked Queen is ready to out everyone's secrets before graduation, and no one it would appear is going to be safe from her mark.

The rich and elitist teenagers of Johnson High don't know who the Marked Queen is - and neither do we for that matter, the dialogue 'she' has throughout the book is mixed in with the telling of the story, at first it con

they may help think they are all that, rich and spoiled but someone is going to make sure all their secrets are out in the open. Will they allow them to be aired? Will they try to protect themselves from being shown up? See what will happen

This is the 1st book I've read written by Zachary Ryan; he has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of his books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.
