Privilege by Kate Brian



Summary:

" Most girls would die for a life of privilege....
some would even kill for it"

Ariana Osgood ruled exclusive Easton Academy- until she was arrested for murdering Thomas Pearson. She's spent the past two years plotting her escape and is determined to get a second chance at the life she left behind. And Ariana will do
anything to get her way....

Review:

I am seriously starting to think Kate Brian can't write anything but an awesome book.

Privilege
was a mysterious and addicting read that I finished in less than a day. In Privilege you really get to see who Ariana is behind the smart and nice girl she presents herself as and it sure isn't nice most of the time. Kate Brian also introduces new characters into Privilege such as Kaitlyn, the suspected killer of her ex-best friend's dad, who Ariana befriends behind bars, Briana Leigh, Kaitlyn's ex best friend who Ariana became friends with after she escapes from prison, and the sweet boy Hudson who Ariana begins to like. Each character is presented in a three dimensional way that allows you to get to know them well even though it's mostly in Ariana's put of view.

Kate Brian's writing is the thing that just makes her books an all around excellent novels. It's to the point but still has a mysterious and scary feeling to it. Plus, it always makes her books fly by which is a characteristic that I look for in a good young adult book.

Also, the plot in this book was cleaver. I always thought I had the whole story figured out: who did what, who was going to die, ex. Though, as the book went on, many twists and turns were thrown in that just threw me right off path.

Overall, Privilege was an great book that I suggest to anyone especially people who love the original Private series. I can't wait to see what happens next in Ariana's life when Beautiful Disaster comes out on June 2nd.

Grade: A+

  1. I've read some of Kate's other books (all fab), but never any of the PRIVATE series. I've heard so many good things about them, I think it's time to begin...

  2. I didn't read the review, since I haven't read the book. I have only read Private. Need to get the rest! Good series!
