Review- Secret Society by Tom Dolby
Title: Secret Society
Author: Tom Dolby
Published by: HarperTeen
Since I have been reading fantasy book after fantasy book, Secret Society was a welcomed change. I enjoyed every part of this book: the streets of New York, the underground clubs, the indie clothing stores and a secret society that four teenagers joined and they have no idea why. The only thing they know is that everything that happens with the society must be kept an absolute secret. They're not supposed to even tell their parents! It's great that the story is never focused around one character, but the reader is given perspective into each of the character's lives.
After the four main characters join this secret society, amazing things begin happening in their lives. But at what price is their success given and do they truly know what is expected of them?Not only do the characters want to know who and what is behind this whole secret society, but so do I!! Who are the other, older members and how did these teenagers get chosen? And how is it possible that suddenly everyone knows who they are?? Is it possible that the society is behind Patch's mother's mental illness? It's all so crazy and cryptic! This book left me with so many questions and so little answers. I'm just hoping with all my heart that theres going to be a sequel.
