Blurb from Goodreads:
In the halls of Georgetown Academy, gossip and rumor abound. But when photographic proof shows up on the front page of The Huffington Post? Then it’s a national scandal.

While Ellie tries to put her life back together, Evan just might get everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect boyfriend and her dream career. But her loyalties will be put to the test when it turns out to be the very people she’s closest to who are standing in her way.

Brinley is determined to find out who is behind the photo leak, all while her own dirty secret spirals out of control. And California girl Taryn is sick of being walked all over and ready to start playing by the rules of D.C., for better or for worse.

In a world where reputation and appearances are everything, knowledge is power. But you’ll have to learn how to use it if you want to come out on top.

What’s Cool from Coliloquy:
As the Georgetown Academy girls get ready for Follow the Stars, authors Alyssa and Jessica let readers decide which of the main girls to follow. You’ll see scandalous behavior, unexpected liaisons, and secret betrayals...all giving you a different perspective as events unfold.

Wow...after the dramatic ending of the first book I should have been expecting the drama in this one...but it was even more intense than I expected!!!

This one was full of scandal, and showed the behind-the-scenes aspects of politics where various stories are leaked to the press...either by political opponents or by individuals themselves to save face. I'll admit, that little dirty secret aspect was really interesting and was one of my favourite parts. I liked seeing how different individuals spun stories in their favour...makes you wonder about what you hear on TV about real-life politics. :P

Along with the scandal, I enjoyed getting to know the characters better. Ellie is still my favourite, but she had a hard time in this one, and I'm hoping Book 3 will turn out better for her! I really liked getting to know a bit more about Brinley and Taryn's background in this one though. I really liked getting to see the different sides to the story.

All in all, I'm really enjoying this series. :D They're quick reads that keep you hooked, and the way that the different perspectives weave together keeps you interested until the very last page. Also, since the four characters are pretty different, there's bound to be at least one that you like the most and are rooting for. ;) I'd recommend this series to anyone who likes drama, especially if you like to get different sides of every story...and if you like seeing it all happen behind the scenes. ;D

This is the second Georgetown Academy book, so what do you think of the premise? 
 Personally, I like to indulge in reading some dramatic books every once in a while, so what about you? Are you a drama fan when it comes to your books?
And, what do you think of Coliloquy's stories? Do you think you'll try out one of their interactive fictions?

    1. There are four actually, but I'm only really a fan of two of them...I'm sure there are other people who prefer the ones I don't like tho. :P haha Me too! :D You're welcome, and thanks for your comment, Jenni! :D
