About The Society

Welcome to Trinity Academy’s best-kept secret.

The Society.

You’ve been handpicked by the elite of the elite to become a member. But first you’ll have to prove your worth by making it through Hell Week.

Do you have what it takes?

It’s time to find out.

Samantha Evans knows she’d never get an invite to rush the Society―not after her dad went to jail for insider trading. But after years of relentless bullying at the hands of the Society’s queen bee, Jessica, she’s ready to take down Jessica and the Society one peg at a time from the inside out.

All it’ll take is a bit of computer hacking, a few fake invitations, some eager rushees…and Sam will get her revenge.

Let the games begin.

My Thoughts on The Society

Ever since her father went to prison, Samantha “Sam” has been tortured by her ex-best friend Jessica. Sam’s tired of the bullying and devises a plan to topple Jessica from her social throne. It’s the perfect plan – until it falls apart.

I like the concept and the characters. Sam has some romantic adventures mixed in with her devious revenge plotting. She also learned to recognize true affection versus shallow attraction.

The Society is good, but it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. It’s not an epic book, but it is very readable and a nice escape. I’d recommend this book if you like contemporary books or stories about revenge.

Content: language (including f-bombs), teenage drinking, and heavy kissing.

    The plot is fairly interesting. I do like revenge plots but I can kind of see where the story is going unless I’m completely wrong. I’m rooting for Sam to have a happy ending (:

      Yeah, you probably know exactly where the story is headed. It was kind of anti-climatic because it was pretty obvious right from the start where things were going.
