What people are saying about the Prep School Confidential series…

“Kara Taylor’s Prep School Confidential series is Veronica Mars meets Dennis Lehane… Refreshingly smart and quick-witted, Taylor’s is a thoroughly optimistic portrayal of American education, peppered with references to Milton and Spenser, and she writes the kind of honest portrayal of teenagers that only someone who recently was one can. Almost-totally-reformed party girl Anne is a thoughtful, empathetic character with a strong moral compass, someone young readers can relate to while still enjoying a fast-paced murder mystery. As a twenty-something author, Kara Taylor shows incredible promise.” –Portland Book Review on Wicked Little Secrets


“Anne’s honest and whip-smart voice demonstrates her strength of character and intuition as she observes the differences between the elite of New York City and Boston. In this first book in a planned series, first-time author Taylor blends thriller and contemporary fiction elements in a tightly developed plot. Anne’s romance with two boys from vastly different social backgrounds offers insight into the heroine’s conflicted, yet emerging sense of morality.” –Publishers Weekly on Prep School Confidential
“A fast-moving murder mystery with preppy overtones and a determined heroine… Heavy overtones of Nancy Drew combine with a sassy boarding school spin for a fizzy read.” –Kirkus Reviews on Prep School Confidential
“Still mourning the demise of Gossip Girl? This new series about private school girls behaving badly will fill the void left by your favorite up-to-no-good Upper East Siders… This book has more intrigue than Serena had boyfriends, which says everything.” –
“Taylor’s book shines with a truly puzzling plot, a grisly murder that speaks to her audience’s maturity, and a couple of good red herrings.  Her sleuth… is charming and wise beyond her years.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
“This book rocks!  Seriously, do not pass this one up.  Prep School Confidential is one of the best books I’ve read all year.  It’s scandalously delicious in the same vein as Pretty Little Liars and Revenge, with a wickedly clever plot that kept me guessing right up until the end.  If I could give this book a 100 stars, I totally would!” — Gemma Halliday, New York Times bestselling author of Honeymoon in High Heels
