In Kara Taylor's Wicked Little Secrets, Anne Dowling becomes entangled in a web of secrets involving a missing student and a conspiracy at Wheatley Prep in this fast-paced, juicy follow-up to Prep School Confidential

Anne Dowling—a fresh, original, and funny new YA whose heroine has knowing, irreverent voice readers will love—is back for her second semester at Wheatley Prep. Although things have settled (somewhat) since her roommate Isabella’s death, Anne's still kind of obsessed with the death of Wheatley student Matthew Weaver thirty years ago, since she found a picture of him and his crewmates with the words “they killed him” scrawled on the back among Isabella’s things.

When Anne learns that her boyfriend Brent’s dad is one of the now-powerful Wheatley alumni who rowed crew with Matthew, and that the crew team continues to induct new members with a creepy-sounding ritual called “The Drop,” she knows further investigation could put her relationship with Brent in danger.  Determined to discover the truth, she reaches out to Anthony, Isabella’s townie brother, who helps her delve deeper into the secrets in Wheatley’s past. Secrets someone would kill to keep hidden.  As the school’s Spring Formal—and its notorious afterparty—approaches, Anne sees the perfect opportunity to do some off-campus digging into the lives of Wheatley’s VIPs in this thrilling, unputdownable read—but if she’s not careful, she’ll be the next student who never comes back.

CHAPTER
ONE
 
 
They say only the good die young. At least, that’s what they used to say about Isabella Fernandez.
Now no one talks about Isabella at all: even though she was murdered almost three months ago and our vice-principal is the one who killed her.
I guess that’s the type of thing the Wheatley School—ranked number 2 on U.S. News and World Report’s list of best prep schools—would like to pretend never happened. Or maybe everyone sleeps a little better at night now that they know Isabella was sleeping with Dr.

Praise for Wicked Little Secrets

Praise for Prep School Confidential:
 

“A fast-moving murder mystery with preppy overtones and a determined heroine… Heavy overtones of Nancy Drew combine with a sassy boarding school spin for a fizzy read.” --Kirkus

 

“Still mourning the demise of Gossip Girl? This new series about private school girls behaving badly will fill the void left by your favorite up-to-no-good Upper East Siders… This book has more intrigue than Serena had boyfriends, which says everything.” –TeenVogue.com

 

“Taylor’s book shines with a truly puzzling plot, a grisly murder that speaks to her audience’s maturity, and a couple of good red herrings.  Her sleuth… is charming and wise beyond her years.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"This book rocks!  Seriously, do not pass this one up.  Prep School Confidential is one of the best books I've read all year.  It's scandalously delicious in the same vein as Pretty Little Liars and Revenge, with a wickedly clever plot that kept me guessing right up until the end.  If I could give this book a 100 stars, I totally would!" -- Gemma Halliday, New York Times bestselling author of Honeymoon in High Heels

“With just the right amount of gossip and glamour, Prep School Confidential is a smart, darkly delicious, thrill-ride of a mystery. Impossible to put down!” 
—Kimberly Derting, award-winning author of The Body Finder

“With a clever and fresh voice, Kara Taylor’s Prep School Confidential had me laughing one moment and on pins and needles the next. The amazing blend of humor and suspense will have you turning pages like crazy.  I can’t wait for the next installment!”
—Ingrid Paulson, author of Valykrie Rising

"Frenetic and captivating, Kara Taylor's Prep School Confidential is a whirlwind of secrets, lies, and scandals. I whipped through the pages, frantic to discover the killer."
—Jill Hathaway, author of Slide

"Fast-paced, suspenseful and scarily believable, Prep School Confidential is everything a good murder mystery should be. I was completely drawn into the world of the Wheatley School where every student and teacher has a secret they'd kill to protect. It will keep you guessing as you race to the end!"
—Daisy Whitney, author of The Mockingbirds and When You Were Here
