"Sworn to secrecy. Bound by loyalty. It's the high school's most exclusive club--but now a twisted mind is leading it. Who will be the first victim?" "Wow! This book's going to be awesome!" I thought. (Plus the blood on the candle on the cover) BOY, was I wrong! What happened here?! Lois Duncan can write much better than this! This is not the first Lois Duncan book I have read, but it is by far the worst. Okay. So she decides to write a book that shows how men can often mistreat women. Fine. I don't care what theme she decides to use, and I am not saying that some of the things that went on in this book don't go on in real life. The thing with which I had a problem was the way Lois Duncan displayed her theme in this book. I think she should have spent less time showing that women are mistreated and more time making the book interesting. I'm not saying that there should be something happening every second, but most of Lois Duncan's other books have been at least interesting enough to keep me reading, but this book was boring, and it wasn't interesting. The only reason I read the whole thing is because I kept telling myself "it'll get good." But it didn't! It was pointless, and it went nowhere. The characters weren't well developed, and I didn't even care who was whom. Another thing is that the book struck me as brain-washing. However, this is just my opinion. As you may have guessed after reading this, I am not a girl. So this book may appeal more to girls.
