All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth

"I recently heard this book described as 'The Secret History meets Gossip Girl'... and that description is 100% accurate.  In fact, Klehfoth's Story is jam-packed with elements that make for fabulous book candy: a powerful and uberrich family, an unsolved mystery, an elite boarding school, and (best of all) a possibly-dangerous secret society.  This is the epitome of drama-soaked fun, and there is NO WAY that it won't be turned into a movie at some point."  - Recommended by Erika

A young woman haunted by a family tragedy is caught up in a dangerous web of lies and deception involving a secret society in this highly charged, addictive psychological thriller that combines the dishy gamesmanship of Gossip Girl with the murky atmosphere of The Secret History.


One summer day, Grace Fairchild, the beautiful young wife of real estate mogul Alistair Calloway, vanished from the family’s lake house without a trace, leaving behind her seven-year old daughter, Charlie, and a slew of unanswered questions.


Years later, seventeen-year-old Charlie still struggles with the dark legacy of her family name and the mystery surrounding her mother. Determined to finally let go of the past, she throws herself into life at Knollwood, the prestigious New England school she attends. Charlie quickly becomes friends with Knollwood’s "it" crowd.


Charlie has also been tapped by the A’s—the school’s elite secret society well known for terrorizing the faculty, administration, and their enemies. To become a member of the A’s, Charlie must play The Game, a semester-long, diabolical high-stakes scavenger hunt that will jeopardize her friendships, her reputation, even her place at Knollwood.


As the dark events of past and present converge, Charlie begins to fear that she may not survive the terrible truth about her family, her school, and her own life.
