Georgetown Academy: Book Three by Jessica Koosed Etting Alyssa Embree Schwartz @coliloquy @GTownAcademy

Book Description

 January 11, 2013

The frosty chill that’s settled over Georgetown Academy isn’t just from the winter weather—growing up in the D.C. fishbowl isn’t for everyone, but a break from the Beltway might just restore some sanity.

Ellie Walker's suffered through a lifetime of scandal in a few short weeks, and now must watch her true love fall for someone else. But will a dose of fresh New England air—and an irresistible newcomer who plays by his own rules—provide the change of pace she so desperately needs?

Riding high after her smashing D.C. debut, Taryn Reyes hatches a plan to cement her relationship with Gabe. But she may get more than she bargained for when she enlists Brooks’ help.

Evan Harnett would do anything to protect her friends. But one moment of weakness, and now she’s on the outs with both Hunter and Ellie. Hot on the trail of a new story, she's heartbroken to find it leads straight back to Ellie. Can she save her friend and their friendship?

Brinley Madison’s Clinton-esque downfall was bad enough, but between family obligations, protecting her friends, and managing local gossip, will she be able to regain her social standing without losing her peace of mind?

Privileged kids in a posh hotel with nothing to do but scheme and ski—and they thought D.C. was a pressure cooker? One thing’s for sure: what happens in Vermont definitely won’t stay in Vermont.

What’s Cool from Coliloquy:
As the Georgetown Academy girls hit the slopes, authors Alyssa and Jessica let readers decide which of the main girls to follow. You’ll see scandalous behavior, unexpected liaisons, and secret betrayals...all giving you a different perspective as events unfold.

About the Authors
Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz met the first day of freshman year at the University of Southern California and instantly bonded over their obsessions with Brenda Walsh, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and The Babysitters Club books they read growing up. After spending a full year mourning the end of college, they began writing television and feature scripts together. They have set up pilots at ABC, NBC, Fox and CW, and sold films to The Weinstein Company, Happy Madison, Paramount, New Regency, MGM and Alloy Entertainment. They love writing female-centric stories, especially for teen and tween audiences, mainly because they still think they are the 18-year-old girls they were when they first met at USC.

MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

***spoilers if you haven't read the first two ***

This series just keeps getting better and better!  The crew is headed for skiing in Vermont and a break from the media coverage that has worn down even the most hardcore Washington resident that crave that spotlight.  Brinley and her parents have circumvented a disaster by going public with her drug abuse and cleaned her up in rapid time.  Now with a therapist in her corner, she gains strength to break away from the stranglehold Washington has on her. Ellie has to sit back and watch the love of her life, Gabe slowly get entangled with Taryn.  Taryn tries to use Brooks, Brinley's brother, to make him jealous but the whole thing backfires in her face when the unexpected happens.  Ellie finally meets Weston, a guy she hopes will take her mind off of Gabe, but is he "all that" or too good to be true?

Well, since this series will be released about every 6 months, it doesn't seem too long to wait, but I really am glad I had a chance to read them all in one sitting.  They are that good.  The biggest problem that I had was now is that I won't see another installment until next January. SIGH.  The character development in this series is just spectacular. Each character becomes deeper and with the chance to read their point of view with the interactive portion of each ebook.  I admit that I had to obsessively read each one just to make sure I didn't miss a thing. Parents:  this series is best suite for teens since there is language, drug and alcohol use, sexual situations much like any decent teen show on the CW and you will find yourself sneaking them away from your kids.
