The premise is that if you are lucky enough to get an invitation to this society...which you are not allowed to talk about or even ask questions about...your life will be perfection. Formerly closed doors will open, success, fame and fortune are yours for the asking.
Now enter Patch...a very inquisitive investigative friend of one of the members. He will not rest until he knows more and perhaps reveals the secrets of the Secret Society.
This is all I am going to say...but prepare yourself for a bit of a roller coaster ride and a surprise ending.
3 kids are invited to join a secret society and all their dreams are full filled when they are juniors, but what does the society want from them? I did like the opening line from the Usual Suspects..Great line.
I loved how it picked up in the end. Out of the chracters I wanted to know more about was Patch/Nick and society from their Point of Views. They seemed to have the more interesting story line. It does seem to be a series because I was left hanging at the end. Overall I liked it.
The plot was addicting and well done. Since, you constantly had curve balls thrown at you that you didn't see coming ( missing people, dead people, ex.). Tom Dolby really went above the limit in writing a fantastic mystery.
Patch, Lauren, Phoebe, and Nick were a set of three dimensional characters that fears to ambitions were all in arms reach to you. Though, with the writing style used ( third person) you sometimes didn't really get to know them, because the point of views were constantly changing.
One of my favorite parts of this Secret Society was the focus on the main Secret Society that the teens belonged too. I was constantly stunned at the way the group, or cult as it seemed at times, worked. Also, I loved reading the back story behind the society, making it an overall fast read. My only problem? I felt that even though you found out a lot about how it worked to how it began you still didn't really get all the info about it. Though, hopefully, some of my burning questions will be answered in a possible sequel.
Overall, I think we may possibly have a future bestseller in Secret Society. If not because of the mystery, but because of romance and likable characters. I look forward to reading more by Dolby, especially a sequel to this spectacular book!
I suggest this to fans of the Pretty Little Liars and Private series who looking for another quick and fast read.
I'm hoping some of the history of The Society is explored in any following books to this series. Overall, you are pulled in quickly to `Secret Society' and the author smoothly pushes you along through different characters' viewpoints adding richness and layers to the story. Outwardly it would seem the author is telling the reader they have to have money and connections to make it in life. Yet, as you delve deeper, you see this isn't the case at all. Patch, Nick's best friend, is an outsider to The Society determined to videotape their secret meetings and gatherings. I enjoyed Patch's perspective because it was a lot like the readers'. Again, though, I hope some of the gaps regarding The Society are filled in during the next book. Overall, a good story and based on `Secret Society' I would pick up Book #2.
