"Will give the toughest of readers goosebumps... Romance and friendship with the glam of Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl." ~Booklist
They call it "The Keating Curse," the supposed strain of bad luck that claimed the lives of boarding-school girls in two generations. It's just one more thing that Sadie can't stand about her new school, where she's a "legacy," since one of those doomed girls was Sadie's mother, who killed herself. Sadie has no interest in Keating at all, much less the glam-perfect girls who "kidnap" her into the elite secret society. But after meeting hunky Jeremy (who attends Keating's "brother" school), she sees some advantage to power and status, until she starts to uncover the sick fantasy of how the perfect people really plan to create their legacy to the world. Now, her "kidnapping" takes on a new darkness, and Sadie must find out the memory her mother couldn't live with. The "Keating Curse" is all too real, and headed straight for her.
