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.

So I’ll be completely honest when I initially read the synopsis and seen the cover I was more than confident the story was going to take a quite different turn.Truthfully I lead myself to believe the Society was going to be a Pretty Little Liars meet Person of Interest, but it was more so along the lines of Revenge. Despite my preconception I enjoyed the world Jodie created. As far as the characters ehhh, they brought emotions out of me so I guess that was a positive thing.

Samantha Evans like most young teenagers life is great and so are her friends, this girl was on a personable high. Like most highs at some point you have to come down and it almost happened overnight. She lost her best friend and her father was sent to jail with the assistance of that said friend. On top of all that her mother abandoned her and her ex best friend, Jessica started to humiliate and degrade her every moment she had.

At some point Samantha had enough and decided to seek some revenge. On paper the plan sounded fair and just. It didn’t take long for the plan to take over her life and that’s when her obsession to make horrible choices began to set in. Hooking up with a strange boy she didn’t know.I wanted to scream do you know how do you know this kid? Is he safe? Things just started to take a downward spiral. Grades started to failed. Even risked losing her only friend Jeremy. As things began to progress her attitude became more whining and she developed more excuses to justify her reason for getting other people involved with her psychological brawl with Jessica.

The Society is told solely from Samantha’s POV which is normally not my fave, but Jodie’s writing style made it all things bearable. The events take took place seem quite realistic and made me appreciate that I’m no longer in high school. The ending didn’t feel quite complete I felt like Sam and Jessica needed a face to face to resolve their issues with each other. Overall, a nice read.
