Summary

"This is going to be big." -Entertainment Weekly

"Juicy, clever, and beguiling." -Cecily von Ziegsar, author of the Gossip Girl novels

A young woman haunted by a family tragedy is caught up in a dangerous web of lies and deception involving a secret society in this highly charged, addictive psychological thriller that combines the dishy gamesmanship of Gossip Girl with the murky atmosphere of The Secret History.

One summer day, Grace Fairchild, the beautiful young wife of real estate mogul Alistair Calloway, vanished from the family's lake house without a trace, leaving behind her seven-year old daughter, Charlie, and a slew of unanswered questions.

Years later, seventeen-year-old Charlie still struggles with the dark legacy of her family name and the mystery surrounding her mother. Determined to finally let go of the past, she throws herself into life at Knollwood, the prestigious New England school she attends. Charlie quickly becomes friends with Knollwood's "it" crowd.

Charlie has also been tapped by the A's--the school's elite secret society well known for terrorizing the faculty, administration, and their enemies. To become a member of the A's, Charlie must play The Game, a semester-long, diabolical high-stakes scavenger hunt that will jeopardize her friendships, her reputation, even her place at Knollwood.

As the dark events of past and present converge, Charlie begins to fear that she may not survive the terrible truth about her family, her school, and her own life.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Seventeen-year-old Charlie Calloway seems to have it all: a wealthy family, a spot in prestigious Knollwood Prep, where she is admired by one of the most popular guys in school, and now the chance at an exclusive secret society when the A's send her an invitation to join their initiation process. The only thing missing from Charlie's life is her mother, Grace, who mysteriously disappeared 10 years before. Although it appears that Grace abandoned her family, absconding with a small fortune from her husband's bank account, a part of Charlie always wonders: did her mom really run away, or was it something (or someone) else that caused her disappearance? This debut mystery gives readers a fun glimpse into the scandalous world of high-society boarding school and is reminiscent of Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep (2005). The plot moves back and forth between time periods and points of view, as Charlie's current experiences begin to unearth more about her mother's disappearance. Soon Charlie must choose between the expectations of her highbrow family and classmates and the truth.--Howard, Margaret Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Did Grace Fairchild simply walk away from her Cinderella life as the wife of a blueblood New York real estate billionaire-as suggested by bank surveillance footage showing her cleaning out the couple's safe deposit boxes days before she disappeared-or did something more sinister happen? A decade later, the question haunts Grace's 17-year-old daughter, Charlie, the appealingly acerbic narrator of Klehfoth's engrossing if flawed debut. Now a junior at Knollwood Augustus Prep, the New Hampshire boarding school her father attended, whip-smart Charlie is beginning the pledging process for an ultra-exclusive secret society, the A's. As the high-stakes initiation game tests Charlie's loyalties and values, she discovers some explosive family history-challenging almost everything she has grown up believing about her parents. Unfortunately, the author's plotting fails to measure up to her ingenious amateur sleuth, relying throughout on colossal coincidences and ending with a denouement that's surprising primarily for its implausibility. Still, Klehfoth's ability to draw in the reader shows that she's an author to watch. Agent: Suzanne Gluck, WME. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
