A Kid's Review on January 31, 2007
Format: Paperback
awesome awesome book! alison's was a normal rich girl until her mother got put into jail. now thanks to kelly, her cousin the backstabber, she is cosidered the outcast. the pitiful outcast. she can trust no one, not even her boyfriend chad, who unexpectedly turned on her. meanwhile her exfriend zoey gets expelled from boarding school and moves back to alison's school. can alison trust her friend? or is she just another rival?

i typed up the first sentence just for you!

there were two things alison rose could count on:her best friend and cousin, kelly,and the fact that everyone in her family would stop at nothing to destoy one another.

please buy this book. what are you waiting for? go!

I picked this book up as a whim at a school book fair. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. I was quickly turning the pages to find out what would happen next. I would not recommend this book for grades 5 and under. However, I did not see anything wrong with it for middle school and up. Just be aware it is the first book of a series and if you're like me, you'll be desperate for the next part.

Survival of the fittest was always a theory that described nature. But for Alison, this theory is perfect for her family.

Alison thought she had a pretty good life, except for the parts where her parents hardly acknowledged her until they needed a favor. But then the FBI came knocking at her door and arrested her mom, accusing her of embezzlement. With her mom in jail, there is no one who Alison can turn to (like there was anyone before). With her dad left, who has no idea how to take care of the situation, aunts and uncles who only care about Grandma Diamond's fortunes, and a boyfriend who is becoming pretty distant, the only person Alison finds comfort in is her cousin, Lily.

Lily is pretty ecstatic that Alison's mom was arrested (of course, she would never say that to Alison). But the one thing that Lily wants the most is to see her perfect cousin get knocked off her high horse and become the biggest loser both at school and in the real world. It may take a while, but Lily is definitely ready to see her cousin go down, and her first move is Chad, Alison's boyfriend.

Chad is beginning to feel like his and Alison's relationship is drifting apart, and is seeing an opportunity to open up with her cousin, Lily. Not only would he be dating the hottest girl in school, but all the popularity and money that comes along with Lily is a pretty good incentive. Just as long as no one finds out about his financial status or what he has to worry about in his house. If he did start to date Lily, it would not only hurt Alison but also his best friend, Tom.

Tom has a huge crush on Lily (but of course it is a secret).

This is supposed to be a review for Little Secrets: Playing with Fire, the first book in the series but Amazon seems to be mixing this one up my review for No Accident, the second book in the series. So here are my reviews for both.

Playing with Fire:

Alison's high-power Martha Stewart-esque mom is carted off to jail in the first chapter. A few pages later, her cousin and best friend Kelly stabs her in the back, steals her boyfriend, and topples Alison from social queen to loser table. A few pages after that, we meet Alison and Kelly's manipulative, powerful, and filthy rich grandmother who just might be pulling some strings behind the scenes. To top it off, Alison's former friend is back from her fifth boarding school with a mysterious reason for her latest eviction and chanting the mantra "Revenge is a dish best served cold." And that's just the the set up!

Each of the books in this series can be read in about an hour--they're under 200 pages and the chapters are only a few pages long. This series reminds me of chocolate kisses: no nutritional value, but, when no one else is looking, you find yourself reaching for more and more. Like Gossip Girl, but with less name dropping, drugs, and boozing and more soap opera-inspired fantastical revelations.

No Accident:

No Accident picks up in the same scene where Playing with Fire leaves off and continues with the back-stabbing, gossip, and lies. Consistent and as likable as the first in the series. Can't say much more without spoiling the plot of the first book, which really must be read in order for this one to make sense. This series is trashy and vapid but fulfills the important and fun role of mental cotton candy. Take it for what it is and enjoy.

A Kid's Review on October 18, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I first read the first one where Alison thought kelly
would be there for her but then kelly is betraying her and
stole her boyfriend and mostly having every one betraying
Alison. Zoey seems she is using Alison for Revenge but is
having second thought. When the Grandmother had that
bomb and didn't die? That was weird because she walked
right through it. When Alisons dad called and warned her
to stay there, Alison was worried. When she went home, her
dad was gone. When she opened the peice of paper her dad
left on the desk, a key fell out and the paper said nothing
on it.
