Tradition, Honor, Excellence...and secrets so dark they're almost invisible Fifteen-year-old Reed Brennan wins a scholarship to Easton Academy -- the golden ticket away from her pill-popping mother and run-of-the-mill suburban life. But when she arrives on the beautiful, tradition-steeped campus of Easton, everyone is just a bit more sophisticated, a bit more gorgeous, and a lot wealthier than she ever thought possible. Reed realizes that even though she has been accepted to Easton, Easton has not accepted her. She feels like she's on the outside, looking in. Until she meets the Billings Girls. They are the most beautiful, intelligent, and intensely confident girls on campus. And they know it. They hold all the power in a world where power is fleeting but means everything. Reed vows to do whatever it takes to be accepted into their inner circle. Reed uses every part of herself -- the good, the bad, the beautiful -- to get closer to the Billings Girls. She quickly discovers that inside their secret parties and mountains of attitude, hanging in their designer clothing-packed closets the Billings Girls have skeletons. And they'll do anything to keep their secrets private.… (mer)

    Caramellunacy: Both are stories about an overly powerful group of girls manipulating and bullying their fellow students in an elite private school and the poor outsider in their target sights. I found Queen Bee's protagonist more likeable as she was more interested in protecting others than joining the clique, but fans of one may be interested in the other.… (mer)

This was the last time I read a book by Kate Brian. Reed was an idiot. I understand that she is going to change as a character later on the series (I hope) but she annoyed me so much in this book. She needed to fit in so badly. She needed to get a grip. So frustrating!
And her and Thomas? I felt nothing for them together. Reed makes no sense to me. She needed at least some character development but she kept on going back to the mean girls. ( )

What can I say? I'm a sucker for any ridiculously over-the-top YA series about privileged teenagers. (Murder) mysteries abound; an abundance of foe yay between the two leads; not actually boring hetero romance; and a series conclusion that completely loses control of itself. Easy, delicious reads. ( )

I fell in love with this book (and all those that followed) right from the start! The plot was very original and being a Connecticut native, I loved that it took place in Easton, CT. There was never a dull moment while reading, I always kept wanting to turn the page to see what would happen next. I would even read an entire one in a day if I had the time! The characters (good and bad) all found a way into my heart and I grew attached to all of them. This book series has definitely been one of my favorites! I would definitely recommend this series to any book lover! ( )

Very much like gossip girl in the sense of rich girls with attitudes and too much money. I didnt hate the first book, but i didnt love it. ( )

This is by no means my kind of book. It's a blatant girly book, and it screams Gossip Girls. I got it as a present last year and just got around to picking it up- wanting a light read.

It basically features 16 year old Reed, who moves away from her dysfunctional family to a posh, private school on a partial scholarship. Naturally, she's willing to do anything to fit in there.

It really, really surprised me. I was absolutely sucked in from the beginning. I thought Reed was very likable (though she could do with not changing her mind so often) and the plot kept me wanting to read more.

I'm not a major fan of the cliff-hanger ending, because I'd love to see what happens next, but it's a long series and I'm not sure I really want to read it.

I would, however, like to know what Brian's editor was on while going through this one. The mistakes throughout were just ridiculous. I fail to see how an ''I'' goes without being capitalized, or how sentences can be missing fairly vital words.

Over all though, very impressed with this one. ( )
