In the book before Ambition, Legacy, Reed Brennan and everyone else in the Billings house at Easton Academy sneak of campus to an exclusive party that they were specifically told not to attend, but get caught coming back. They used an underground tunnel that started in one of the oldest buildings on campus, and somehow the building caught on fire in the time they were gone, so they have to find a way to get out of the punishment for that too. So now, in Ambition, the headmaster threatens to eliminate Billings, forever. But the Billings Girls make a deal with the Easton Academy school board that if they can raise five million dollars in one month, Billings will remain as it is and they will find other punishment for the girls. Since Reed is president of Billings, it is her job to plan and organize a fund raiser that will assure that the five million dollars will be raised. And as if this wasn’t enough, the death of her friend Cheyenne that occurred only a month ago is starting to haunt her, literally. Reed doesn’t know who is responsible for what is going on or even if it is really happening, but somehow Cheyenne’s old things start showing up in Reed’s room and e-mails are sent from Cheyenne’s address. But this is impossible, isn’t it? Reed has suspicions that a girl on campus, Ivy Slade, has something to do with it because of her mysterious, and strange, past and reputation. But there is no way to be sure. And you would think this is enough for someone to handle, but added to all of this, Reed and her boyfriend just broke up because of Reed’s mistakes at the Legacy with her best friend’s boyfriend.

I thought that this book was one of the best in the series. It really keeps you reading, and you’re never bored. It is the seventh book of it series, and I enjoyed all of them. But to fully understand Ambition, you would have to read the whole series.
