Realistic Fiction

Rated 4 out of 5 stars


Fifteen year old Reed was an average girl, always was. Just in time, Reed wins a scholarship to her one and only dream school, Easton Academy. This scholarship was just what she needed, a way to get away from her troubled home and the boring suburban life. Once arriving at the beautiful, traditional campus of Easton, she realizes she didn’t belong there. She didn’t fit in. She was on the outside looking in.

This school wasn’t anything like she thought it would be. Every girl was richer, prettier, and more sophisticated than she ever thought was possible. All she wanted was an education. But now, she would kill to hang out with those girls, any of them. Once at a party, Reed came in contact with the Billings girls. The Billings girls weren’t just any girls, they were the girls. What’s so special about them? They are the most beautiful, intelligent and confident girls. Everybody wanted to be like them. They held all the power at the school. And Reed wanted in. Once the Billings girls noticed her, there was no turning back. She used everything in her power to be in their clique, “the good, the bad, and the beautiful.” Reed soon realized that may have not been the best idea.
Private showed how the power of other’s attitudes could also change your outlook on life. Also, the theme portrayed in this book is the growing of age. Such as, as you become older you have to take on more responsibilities. Also, you have to take consequences for your actions. Although this book can be boring at times, it can also be hard to put down. Kate Brian does an amazing job at making this novel very relatable. I would recommend this novel to teenage girls who like a book full of drama. This novel will leave you wanting more!
