Georgetown Academy Season 1 by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz

Reviewed by Charlotte Lynn

The children of high profile Washington D.C. parents go to the elite high school Georgetown Academy.  This is the story of Ellie, Brinley, Evan, and Taryn.

Ellie is considered part of the power couple of Georgetown Academy.  Until her ex boyfriend moves back to town and turns her world upside down.  She has to make some tough decisions all while trying not to embarrass her Senator mother.

Brinley is of The Madison family.  Her father is a D.C. insider.   Brinley has an addiction that could really ruin her family if it got out.  

Evan is kind of the outsider.   She has no pedigree and is on a scholarship to attend the high school.   Always being the outsider until she gets a boyfriend that brings her into the inner circle.

Taryn is laid back and doesn’t really fit into her D.C. surroundings.  She has her first D.C. gossip run in and realizes that this world is not at all what she is use to and works hard to keep her integrity.

I read this series of four books in two days.  Not familiar with the characters or author I was unsure what to expect.  What I got was a fast moving soap opera in a book and I LOVED it!  All four of the main teenage girl characters were interesting and entertaining.  Their loyalty to their families was my favorite character trait that they all shared.  This loyalty kept all the drama and craziness in check and believable.

With each book the reader had the choice of which girl to follow through the middle of the story, like the old style choose your own ending story books.  I loved that part.  I went back and read all four girls stories and really had no favorite, they were all amazing.   Each girls story told of the same event but with their own tiwst of the events.  I enjoyed seeing how each character perceived what happen at these high profile society parties.  I highly recommend going back and doing this to every book.

High school drama mixed with politics is exactly what Georgetown Academy is .  A prefect novel for a fun read.  I highly recommend these novels.
