This Week's Book

by Daphne Benedis-Grab

Coming 18 December 2012
from Merit Press


A powerful story of deadly intrigue and the bonds of friendship in the closed world of America's super-rich.

After an unforgivable betrayal, Ariel has made it her job to turn everyone at their posh prep school against her former best friend Sera. Yet, Sera's father forces her to attend Ariel's birthday bash in hopes of making amends, and softening the sting is Hudson Winters, gorgeous teen idol, who will be giving a private concert.

But facing the social event of the year in utter disgrace turns out to be the least of Sera's problems on the most fateful night of her life. Dropped off by the family driver at the gated Barett mansion where she virtually grew up with Ariel, Sera worries only about avoiding the birthday girl. Then, when the lights dim, instead of the opening notes of a ballad, there's a burst of gunfire. Unseen thugs cut down adults and teens alike as mercenaries target Ariel's father, one of the first to die. Ariel takes refuge in a secret set of staircases behind the walls, where the family's servants have always made their discreet way from floor to floor. Only Sera knows where Ariel is. As the clock ticks down on the few hours hostage takers give Sera before they execute her, Ariel counts on Sera to remember where she is and the sisterhood they once shared. Sera turns to Hudson, who has been only a face on a CD cover until now, learning the shocking secrets of the singer's life that may be their only hope.


Cruising around the revamped NetGalley (how good does it look?!) and I came across this title. Reading the beginning of the blurb I was like eh, but then when I read about the hostage situation, I'm like Gimme! ^_^  It's coming out in December, so it is most definitely making my Christmas wish list. And can I just say, how pretty does the cover look?!


What are you waiting on?
