Secret Society by Tom Dolby

Title: Secret Society

Author: Tom Dolby

Summary via Goodreads:

                                                                           Secrets, secrets are no fun.

Secrets, secrets hurt someone. . . .

An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York’s wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.

They didn’t ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything. Even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown, and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they’re forced to get on the nape of their necks.

Once they’re part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It’s all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.

Beginning:

Invitations, Phoebe Dowling realized, often came from the most unexpected places.

Page 56:

She looked down at the bag. It was pretty; it felt nice hanging on her shoulder. But she had done nothing to earn it. It wouldn’t answer any of her questions. Still, she clutched it tightly as she wondered who exactly had sent it to her, what she had done to receive it, and, most important, what was expected of her in return.

– This book was recommended to me by a family member. It sounds like an interesting book and I’m excited to read it.
